Optimal Electrolyte by Seeking Health
Seeking Health's Optimal Electrolyte provides important nutrients in an easy-to-use powder form and is specifically aimed at athletes facing prolonged or tough physical performances. Niacin (B3), the natural sugar D-ribose, creatine and taurine are all included. Magnesium, sodium and potassium are also added in addition to minerals, also known as electrolytes. The powder does not contain any artificial flavors or colorants, is available from Ergomax in the neutral 'Seltzer' flavor variant and is the healthy alternative to sports drinks with a high sugar content.
What are electrolytes?
Electrolytes are substances with the ability to conduct electricity when dissolved in water. Several bodily functions depend on electrolytes, such as controlling heart rate and muscle contraction. It is therefore important that the bodily electrolyte balance is maintained. When you sweat a lot over a short time, as is often the case whether during strenuous or endurance 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 works well with Seeking Health’s NADH + CoQ10 - Lozenges, a product that combines two key ATP production cofactors 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 proper electrolyte balance, benefits muscles and supports 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 muscles. This powder also contains niacin (B3), which promotes energy metabolism and helps fight fatigue; creatine, which helps to improve performance in explosive strength efforts; and taurine, which is important for the muscles*3, contributes to heart function*3 and benefits blood pressure levels*3.

Evolution of epigenetics
Epigenetics is a science that has been changing and evolving significantly in recent years. More and more we begin to understand that our DNA, or genetic predisposition, does not have all the clues, but that it is the 'epigenome' that effectively runs the DNA by turning certain genes 'on' or 'off'. So we may have mapped our entire DNA, but we are far from there yet. After all, our DNA is comparable to a computer, where it depends on the software (the epigenomes) in which way the computer is being used. The main epigenetic processes in our body are the methylation processes, in particular DNA methylation. A lot of research is currently being done into the influence of diet and lifestyle on our epigenomes and to what extent epigenomic influence can also be passed on to subsequent generations. In sum, the science of epigenetics studies variations in gene expression, which, however, do not cause changes in the DNA sequence itself.
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 of factors that influence our gene expression. The term epigenetics was coined in 1942 by biologist Conrad Waddington; it literally means 'round the DNA', referring to the markers surrounding DNA that can turn genes on and off. The idea behind it is that the lived experiences, living conditions and nutritional status of an organism have a major influence on its genetic predispositions. For Dr. Ben Lynch, epigenetics stands for the power of our genes and for the fact that we do not have to surrender to our DNA, but that we can work with our genes and find out how to shape this cooperation to our advantage. Lynch's method is therefore aimed at detecting our DNA markers (also known as SNPs, or 'single-nucleotide polymorphisms') and making them manageable with the help of supplements, dietary and lifestyle adjustments, to 'clean up dirty genes', as Lynch put it.
About Seeking Health
After suffering from unexplained health problems himself for years, Dr. Ben Lynch became convinced that the cause of these complaints had to be sought in having 'dirty' genes. After ten years of researching, studying and treating thousands of clients around the world, he wrote the book Dirty Genes, in which he developed and refined his method of actively using insights from epigenetics to optimize health. Lynch is currently one of the most consulted experts in epigenetics. He has always been fascinated by the influence and power of our genes and he believes that through the right diet and lifestyle we can work with our genes to create higher levels of health.
