Your going to love this, I was looking for something to help

Living in Florida I can work out all I want and get in shape prepping for the nice little hills around Silverton, CO. But nothing can be done for the fact I am at sea level and sound like a wounded deer gasping for aIr when I am climbing the mountains. I decided to surf the web and see if there is any medicine that can help my lungs try to get some more oxygen and here is what I found. Now I have an excuse to visit my doctor

Viagra May Help Severe Altitude Sickness

Viagra may help protect against lung problems resulting from high-altitudes, say French researchers.
my.webmd.com/content/article/100/105531.htm

I will try to find the active link but the report says that up tp a 21% improvement in the lungs ability to adjust at elevations of 10,000 from sealevel living.

That's because it's a vasodiolator which opens up blood vessels for increased blood flow. That's what makes your plumbing work better (wood). However, as you and the study surmises increased blood flow (to the lungs) can help alleviate that feeling you're sucking eggs when hiking in the mountains. The amino acid L-Arginine has a similar effect.

I'd imagine that the guys in camp would want to know if that was a banana in your pants or if you were just happy to see them.
