Seeking Health Optimal Electrolyte is a dietary supplement containing key compounds that support optimal training performance and high energy levels – essential electrolytes, creatine in the unique form of Creatine MagnaPower® chelate, taurine, D-ribose, and niacin. The preparation is a healthy alternative to classic sweetened drinks for athletes. The product is available in three delicious flavors and is in the form of a water-soluble powder, enclosed in separate sachets. The package contains 30 sachets.
Creatine is naturally found in the human body, primarily in skeletal muscles, where, as phosphocreatine, is an important metabolic energy storage in the form of ATP. Creatine effectively improves muscle endurance and training parameters. It neutralizes the lactic acid produced as a result of anaerobic glycolysis, mitigating muscle soreness and fatigue. It supports anabolic processes, protecting proteins against breakdown, enhancing their synthesis and supporting the building of desired lean body mass. Creatine is particularly helpful during a workout with the predominance of anaerobic conversions.
D-ribose is a simple sugar naturally occurring in the human body, classified as vitamin-like compounds. It participates in the protein synthesis and is the part of the nucleic acids present in RNA and DNA. D-ribose affects the increase of key nucleotides, e.g. ATP, ADP, and UDP, due to which it demonstrates the synergism of action with creatine and effectively strengthens its action leading to an acceleration of muscle strength increase. It is believed that D-ribose can increase creatine activity up to 6-fold. Additionally, D-ribose supports to increase aerobic capacity and energy levels, as well as it can also protect against cardiovascular diseases.
Niacin, or vitamin B3, performs key metabolic functions in the body. It is a substrate for the synthesis of NAD + coenzymes and the phosphorylated form of NADP +, which participate in many oxidation and reduction reactions. Niacin is needed to maintain optimal metabolism in the mitochondria. Since it has a beneficial effect on lipid metabolism, niacin also has antiatherosclerotic properties. It increases the level of HDL lipoprotein while reducing the content of atherogenic LDL, VLDL, and fatty acids. Niacin is also essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system and has properties that prevent the processes of neurodegeneration caused by, among others, consumption of ethyl alcohol.
Electrolytes, the magnesium, sodium, and potassium salts that are soluble in body fluids are responsible for the proper osmotic pressure, participating in the regulation of water and electrolyte metabolism and the liquid levels in the body. They are essential mainly for the proper functioning of the nervous and muscular systems. They affect the optimal glycogen regeneration, proper thermoregulatory processes, and participate in the processes of muscle fiber contraction. Electrolytes are lost with sweat, which also occurs during a workout. However, even if no sweating occurs, an intensive physical effort increases the demand for mineral salts. Their deficiencies leads, among others, to disorders of water metabolism and water retention in the body, muscle cramps and increased heart rate.
Taurine is a non-protein amino acid naturally found in the body. It supports the efficient transport of creatine to the muscles, increasing its use by the cells. It has a beneficial effect on post-workout regeneration and participates in maintaining water and electrolyte balance. In addition, taurine plays a role of a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and can potentially optimize the metabolism of neurons and thus support cognitive functions.
In summary, Seeking Health Optimal Electolyte is a valuable alternative to regular sports drinks. The product is recommended especially for physically active people, shaping their figure, athletes, individuals performing physical work and during intense sweating.
Small, comfortable stick packs to enjoy a healthy electrolyte drink in any situation – at the gym, during physical work or active leisure.

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
Sugars - is the term used to refer to the crystal structure of the carbohydrate (sugar), characterized by a sweet taste. This group includes: sucrose (obtained from sugar cane and sugar beets and natural foods), fruit sugars (fructose) and glucose. Carbohydrate intake should not exceed 10% of the energy consumed during the day meals. Excess intake of sugars leading to diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity. Particular caution should be performed carbohydrate intake by athletes of sculpting disciplines and people on a diet. A greater need for carbohydrates, due being easily accessible sources of energy, may be in the periods before and after workouts and before and after the fight.

Vitamin B3 (vitamin PP, niacin, nicotinic acid, nicotinamide) is niacinamide niacin. It is used in interaction with vitamins B1, B2 and B6 in the synthesis of hormones during lactation. It provides proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. It is helpful in inflammatory conditions of the skin. Required for synthesis of sex hormone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisone, and insulin. It does not lose its properties in the manufacturing and storage. The source of acquiring vitamins PP are both products of animal origin (the lean meat, eggs, fish) and vegetable origin (dates, figs, hazelnuts, plums).
Dosage: 2-12 mg / day for children, 14 mg / day for women, 16 mg / day for men and 17-18 mg / day for pregnant or nursing women.
Inositol hexanicotinate (IHN), also known as inositol hexaniacinate, is the inositol esterified with niacin.
IHN undergoes hydrolysis in the body, gradually releasing nicotinic acid and inositol. Such properties make this form not only very effective but also free of the side effect referred to as flush effect (redness mainly on the face, forearms and neck), which occurs in standard forms of niacin and is very unpleasant for many individuals.
Inositol hexanicotinate is a component of niacin-based dietary supplements. It is suggested that inositol hexanicotinate is as effective as niacin alone (may contribute to lowering cholesterol levels). Because of decreased risk of such symptoms as skin redness, itching and tingling, it can be a perfect solution for persons who resign from traditional vitamin B3 supplements due to these unpleasant effects.
Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day
Creatine (β-methylguanidoacetic acid) is an endogenous substance, synthesized from the acids present in liver and kidney (L-arginine, L-glycine and L-methionine) and consumption of meat. Its action ensures an adenosine triphosphate (ATP) level, which is an energy carrier, increases the hydration of cells and muscle glycogen stores. In the sports supplementation creatine is stored in the muscles, which improves energy management, exercise capacity and quick recovery and muscle growth. It has the ergogenic, anabolic and anti-catabolic potential.
Creatine is one of the high-performance substances used in competitive sports, with a reputation confirmed by scientific research. In the form of mono-preparation supplements such as creatine ester, creatine malate, creatine monohydrate, and the multi-component supplements (both various forms of creatine, as well as other substances, precursors of nitric oxide, the BCAA type amino acids). Supplements containing creatine available for purchase at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: depending on the form of preparation, the type of exercise and weight, normally one of the following models of creatine dosage is used:
- cyclic supplementation: 5 - 10g per day in 1 - 3 portions a day, 2 - 5 g per dose. Cycle time approx. 4 - 12 weeks
- cyclic supplementation with saturated phase: first 5 - 7 days 20 - 30g per day on Day 4 - 6 doses 4 - 6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2 - 10g per day in divided doses. Cycle time approx. 4 - 8 weeks
- constant supplementation: 0.03 - 0.05 g per kg body weight for an extended period of time.
Magnesium creatine chelate is patented by Albion. The special formulation enables to connect a single molecule of magnesium and creatine which allows the use of the phenomenon of synergism both intensifying muscle function, as well as medically enhancing simultaneously action of the two components, as magnesium and creatine, are involved in the cells processes of energy by increasing the efficiency of metabolism. The use of creatine chelate enhances the body's exercise capacity (strength and endurance). It speeds up the growth of muscle tissue. Recommended for strength athletes, during intense workouts, because it improves the process of muscle regeneration after workout. Available in the form of mono-preparation and as a component of creatine stacks.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
Ribose is a simple sugar produced within the organism, included in the nucleic acid [RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic)], containing information on genetic factors affecting growth and development and normal functioning of cells. The appropriate amount of ribose adopted in the supplementation guarantees the resoring and proper energy conversion, both ATP and ADP and increasing aerobic capacity, improves the functioning of the heart and muscles. It is recommended especially the use of preparations containing ribose for people at high physical exertion and those whose body does not produce sufficient amounts of ribose.

Taurine – non-protein amino acid containing sulphur, which is synthesized in the body from methionine and cysteine, present in sufficient amount in human or animal body (in the brain, heart and skeletal), although in some cases must be supplemented. Significantly affects the calcium content in the cells and stabilizes the water and electrolyte balance and maintains acid-base balance. Takes part in the synthesis of bile acids. In the body acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. It is an insulin-mimetic improving insulin metabolism, responsible for transport of nutrients (such as amino acids, glucose, creatine) to the cells and muscle tissue. These properties determine that it is a valued mono-preparation supplement and valuable addition to creatine and amino acid supplements, recommended for psycho-pchysically active people and athletes and other competitive sportsmen in pre- and post-workout periods.
Dosage: 3 grams per day.
