In 2000 Dr. Roanne R Houck, N.D., while finishing her naturopathic medical degree, began thinking about a natural remedy for altitude sickness and improved energy at elevation. Triggered by an article highlighting the substantial financial losses the Colorado ski industry, Dr. Houck saw an opportunity to help people who suffer due to the ill effects of altitude on mountain visitors. In 2003 Acli-Mate® was trademarked and the first Acli-Mate® Mountain Sport Drink formulation was complete.
