What's On

Research Participants Required!

11th May 2023

Are you interested in developing methods of preventing altitude sickness?

Would you like 10 free sessions at The Altitude Centre?

If you answered yes to these two questions, then you may be interested in taking part in our upcoming research.

We are researching how a probiotic drink can prevent altitude sickness

The gut is very oxygen hungry, but our latest research suggests that SLAB 51 Probiotic drink can reduce oxygen use by the gut, leaving more available for the rest of the body. If there is more oxygen for the rest of the body, symptoms of altitude sickness may be reduced.

The gut is incredibly oxygen hungry. If we can improve its efficiency with oxygen, we might be able to free up more oxygen for the rest of the body.


Who Can Participate?

Sivomixx is a probiotic containing a propietary blend of bacteria called SLAB51. Our research suggests it can help protect blood oxygen levels at high altitude.

If you are:

  • Male
  • Aged 18-50
  • Free of cardiorespiratory disease
  • >3 months without altitude exposure

Then you’re eligible to take part.


What is Required?

You will be required to visit The Altitude Centre at 50 Gun St, London E1 6AH on 2 occassions. On each visit, you will spend the day in our environmental chamber at 4000 m while we monitor your response.

On one visit, you will drink the probiotic at the start of the day, and on the other you will drink a placebo.
We will provide all food during the trial, and wifi so that you can WFH from the chamber.

What’s In It For Me?

  • Opportunity to contribute to scientific research with real world impact
  • All food and drink provided during trials, plus wifi so you can WFH during the trial
  • All participants receive 10 free exercise sessions at The Altitude Centre on completion
  • All participants receive a trial box of Sivomixx 800 probiotic on completion
