My son believes in this creatine and can’t be without it. When SK was out of stock I was able to locate the last few bottles and have them sent from NZ back to US. He plays football, wrestles, and works hard in the weight room. SK’s combination of creatine and magnesium is the best around. Love that it is a clean product and lives up to it’s name.
Optimal Creatine by Seeking Health contains 2.5 g of creatine as Creatine MagnaPower® (magnesium creatine complex) per serving. Creatine is naturally produced in the human body from other amino acids and helps to supply energy to all cells in the body, due to its role in ATP regeneration. It is made from three amino acids, arginine, glycine and methionine, which are combined in the liver. Creatine may help support healthy muscle function and power by providing immediate ATP (adenosine triphosphate) for energy during speed or strength training. It supplies energy to muscle cells for short bursts of energy (such as lifting weights) through phosphate replenishment of ATP. Creatine also draws water into the muscles, an action known as cell volumization, potentially enhancing muscle mass and appearance.*
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential for maintaining optimal health. It is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including those required for oxidative phosphorylation and normal energy production. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function and supports a healthy heart and immune system. Supplementation of magnesium may help support athletic performance by supporting healthy erythrocyte and hemoglobin levels. It may also help support normal protein synthesis and energy metabolism.*
Optimal Creatine provides a unique form of creatine bound to magnesium, combining their roles in ATP production, normal muscle function and healthy energy levels. This combination may also help protect creatine through the digestive tract and support optimal absorption. For additional cellular and energy support with Creatine MagnaPower® plus niacin, d-ribose and more, consider our naturally delicious Optimal Electrolyte drink mix.*

Creatine -- without all the other stuff
My son was interested in taking creatine to help with his workouts and was considering several options. I was relieved to find this one from Seeking Health -- all the good stuff, but none of the other fillers and synthetics found in other creatine formulas. I can always trust the quality from Seeking Health.
