Optimal Electrolyte by Seeking Health
Seeking Health’s Optimal Electrolyte provides important nutrients in an easy to use powder form and is specifically intended for athletes with prolonged or strenuous physical performance. Niacin (B3), the natural sugar D-ribose, creatine and taurine are all included. Magnesium, sodium and potassium are also added, which are known as both minerals and electrolytes. The powder does not contain any synthetic flavors or colorants, is available from Ergomax in the neutral 'Seltzer' flavor variant and is the healthy alternative to sports drinks with high sugar contents.
What are Electrolytes?
Electrolytes are substances with the ability to conduct electricity when dissolved in water. Multiple bodily functions depend on electrolytes, such as control of the heart rate and the contraction of muscles. It is therefore important that in the body the proper electrolyte balance is maintained. When you sweat a lot in a short time, as is often the case with prolonged physical exertion, you not only lose salt and water, but also a lot of electrolytes. Athletes often take electrolytes in the form of a sports drink before or during a workout. This supplement combines well with Seeking Health’s NADH + CoQ10 - Lozenges, which combines two key cofactors for ATP production in one convenient lozenge.
Support for athletes
Seeking Health’s Optimal Electrolyte contains the minerals magnesium, sodium, and potassium, which are also known as electrolytes. Magnesium contributes to a good electrolyte balance, benefits the muscles and keeps energy levels up. Sodium is important for the water balance and with potassium helps contribute to the maintenance of blood pressure and normal muscle function. The powder also contains niacin (B3), which promotes energy metabolism and helps fight fatigue; creatine, which helps improve performance in explosive strength efforts; and taurine, which is important for muscles*3, contributes to heart function*3 and benefits blood pressure*3.

- Blend of the electrolytes sodium, potassium and magnesium combined with B-vitamin niacin (B3), taurine, creatine and the natural sugar D-ribose
- Magnesium contributes to a proper electrolyte balance, benefits the muscles and supports bodily energy levels
- Sodium is important for the water balance and, together with potassium, contributes to the maintenance of blood pressure and the normal functioning of muscle tissue
- Niacin (B3) promotes energy metabolism and helps fight fatigue

- Free from milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, nuts, peanuts, wheat, soy, gluten, GMOs, synthetic flavors and colors; suitable for vegans
Evolution of epigenetics
In recent years, researchers have increasingly agreed that our DNA, or our genetic predisposition, is strongly influenced by environmental factors. For a long time it was thought that we could learn all about DNA if we just identified the over 25,000 genes. It has now become clear that the way in which our genes are expressed is not fixed, but that this is controlled by 'epigenomes': switches that can turn DNA 'on' or 'off', comparable to software that runs a computer. Epigenomes can be influenced by diet and other environmental factors, including lifestyle and environment. Epigeneticists study the changes in gene expression that occur at the epigenetic level. Epigenetics, then, is about changes in gene expression, without changes in the DNA sequence. It is a science that has evolved strongly in recent years and that focuses in particular on the process of methylation: the most important epigenetic process that takes place in our body.
The Methylation Process
Every minute, trillions of methylation processes take place in all cells of our body, which in turn affect thousands of other bodily processes. Methylation is a controlled transfer of a methyl group primarily to proteins, amino acids, enzymes and DNA. Methylation is involved in the maintenance and repair of our DNA within our cells and tissues. Substances that have the ability to donate a methyl group are called methyl donors. B vitamins, vitamin C, biotin, zinc, folic acid and betaine, among other compounds, can function as a methyl donor. Methyl groups play an important role in gene expression, since they have the ability to switch our DNA on and off. It is not without reason that they are one of the most researched molecules in epigenetics. Research indicates that methylation responds to environmental factors and decreases with age. This has made the relationship between health and the ability to methylate a frontier research area.
Epigenetics & Seeking Health
Epigenetics refers to the myriad factors that influence our gene expression. The name epigenetics was coined in 1942 by biologist Conrad Waddington and literally means 'around the DNA', referring to the markers around the DNA that can turn genes on and off. The idea behind it is that the experiences, living conditions and nutrition of an organism have a major modulating influence on its genetic predisposition. For Dr. Ben Lynch, epigenetics stands for the power of our genes and for the fact that we are not our DNA, but that we can work with our genes and just need to know how to shape this cooperation. The Lynch method is therefore aimed at our DNA markers (also called SNPs or single nucleotide polymorphisms). By using supplements and making adjustments in diet and lifestyle, we can aim to 'clean up dirty genes', in Lynch's words.
About Seeking Health
From an early age, Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health, was interested in the relationship between health and gene expression, and studied natural medicine, molecular biology and epigenetics. In his recent book Dirty Genes, he describes how having 'contaminated' genes can be the cause of countless health problems and shows how you can optimize the functioning of your genes through the right diet and lifestyle. In recent years he helped thousands of clients, physicians and health care professionals in the use of these insights and therefore is currently one of the most consulted experts in the field of epigenetics.
