Alpine air - a fountain of youth for the lungs

Holiday at 1,500 metres in Vorarlberg

Studies prove what people in the Alps have known for a long time. Life at an altitude of over 1,500 metres above sea level causes numerous changes in your body and works like a rejuvenation treatment! You are well taken care of in this regard in Warth-Schröcken.

The altitude causes the following:

  • A clear decrease for high blood pressure
  • A improvement in the processing of fat and sugar
  • A reduction in body weight of two to three kilograms
  • An improvement in oxygen transport due to the increased formation of red blood cells
  • and a stabilisation of the neuropsychiatric values

Anti-ageing at high altitudes

Anyone spending time at high altitudes soon notices that the oxygen content in the air is reduced, the air gets "thinner", so to speak. The body adjusts to this light deficiency of oxygen in two phases:

1. The body experiences the lack of oxygen as an unspecific stress causing more energy to be consumed. In this phase, performance capacity is somewhat restricted, most people feel pronounced fatigue.

2. The organism recovers, the breathing and the cardiovascular system are adjusted. The new creation of red blood cells is stimulated by the reduced oxygen content in the breathing air. Old blood cells are eliminated and new "young" blood cells take their place. This is a true rejuvenation process. Oxygen can be passed on more efficiently to the tissue, the circulation and performance capacity increase. You feel fresher, better and recovered. This effect exists only in the mountains!
