At Seeking Health, we believe there is a fundamental step missing, almost 100% of the time, in today’s healthcare system. A consistent focus on treating symptoms, rather than building health, can mean that you cycle in and out of symptoms and “treatment” over and over, sometimes for years.
Our approach is to support and optimize your digestion, reduce environmental exposure and toxic burden and diet optimization so nutrients can flood in and allow our body to do what it does best – Heal.
B12 and Folate
Prenatal Vitamins for Multifunctional Health and Pregnancy Support*
Doctors recommend folate and B12 during pregnancy. These essential nutrients are known to reduce the risk of neural tube defects (e.g., spina bifida), as well as other birth defects and pregnancy complications.* Optimal Prenatal contains B12 and folate in their bioavailable, methylated forms. Your body needs these active forms for proper methylation, which is essential for healthy fetal development.*
High-strength prenatal formula supports healthy spine and brain development*
Digestive comfort from vitamin B6 and ginger*
Bioavailable folate and B12 support optimal genetic development*
Who Needs Optimal Prenatal?
Are you concerned about nutritional deficiencies? If so, you may be wondering how to best support a healthy pregnancy.* Optimal Prenatal is a powerful, nutrient-dense prenatal multivitamin formulated by epigenetics expert, Dr. Ben Lynch.* Optimal Prenatal resulted from years of research into epigenetics, fertility, and pregnancy, including the MTHFR gene variation. It is designed for women who need more intense nutritional support and want to support a healthy pregnancy.*
Vitamin A: The active form of vitamin A, as retinyl palmitate, supports optimal eye, mucus membrane, and immune system health. It also bypasses common BCO1 gene variations that can impact your body’s ability to convert vitamin A into its active form.*
True Folate: Features folate in its bioavailable, active forms of L-5-MTHF (methylfolate) and folinic acid (calcium folinate). Folate supports spine and brain development, healthy genetic expression, and DNA/RNA synthesis.*
Bioavailable B12: Active forms of B12 are included to support your body’s utilization of folate. Methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin are known as superior forms of vitamin B12 that your body can readily utilize.*
Choline: Essential for healthy brain development, methylation processes, and genetic expression during fetal development.*
Milk Thistle and Ginger Root: Key for promoting glutathione production, healthy liver protection, and digestion.*
Why Does Optimal Prenatal Work?
Optimal Prenatal is formulated by epigenetics expert, Dr. Ben Lynch, using only superior and bioavailable forms of key nutrients. Its unique formulation is based on the enzymatic pathways involved in pregnancy and genetic development. Enzymes in these pathways require specific nutrients as cofactors. Arguably, the most critical of these nutrients are the active and bioavailable forms of folate and B12.*
How Do I Use Optimal Prenatal?
Take 8 capsules daily, with a meal, in divided doses, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Do not take within 5 hours of bedtime.

How to Enhance
Dr. Ben Lynch recommends using certain supplements based on your need for them. Start with a partial serving and increase slowly over time to the full serving, only if needed. When you start feeling good, consider reducing the serving size, skipping days, or pausing supplementation. Then take again when you feel you need it (stressful day, traveling, chemical exposure, etc.), hence “pulsing.” Work with your qualified healthcare practitioner to determine what’s best for you.

Optimal Iron Chewable, each tasty tablet provides 10 mg of iron in a well-tolerated form, if iron supplementation is needed. Take at least 2 hours apart from your prenatals to support optional calcium absorption.* Optimal DHA, this prenatal DHA supplement offers a clean and pure source of omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, including EPA and DHA, for healthy brain development and cognition.* ProBiota Bifido, a unique one-a-day probiotic that supports a healthy microbiome for you and baby.

Try Prenatal Yoga
It is incredibly important to keep a healthy balance of stress and relaxation during pregnancy. Implementing gentle movement into your routine can help minimize oxidative stress on your genes. It also supports muscle comfort and wellness as your body grows and changes. If gentle movement is not possible, practice deep breathing through your nose to help to lower your stress response.
