Who Needs Prenatal Essentials Chewable

Do you need an affordable prenatal multivitamin that does not compromise quality?

Do you prefer chewable prenatal vitamins?

If you already live a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, you may just need a few essential nutrients to support a healthy pregnancy.

Prenatal Essentials Chewable is a targeted prenatal vitamin formulated by epigenetics expert, Dr. Ben Lynch ND.

It provides the foundational basics needed for a healthy pregnancy. No more, no less.

Dr. Lynch created this formula after years of research into epigenetics, fertility, and pregnancy, including the MTHFR gene variation. It is designed for women who require a lower-strength formula (compared to our high-strength Optimal Prenatal). Compared to our Prenatal Essentials capsules, this chewable version contains CoQ10 and milk thistle for additional detoxification and antioxidant support.

Prenatal Essentials Chewable features well-absorbed vitamins and chelated minerals. Your body (and baby’s body) can easily recognize and utilize these bioavailable forms. Supporting wellness and comfort during pregnancy has never been easier. Now, you can cover your prenatal bases with only two delicious chewable tablets a day!

Superior and bioavailable forms of key pregnancy nutrients promote healthy:

  • Methylation and Nervous System: Bioavailable forms of folate and B12 plus TMG (trimethylglycine) support optimal methylation. These methyl donors feed the methylation pathway, especially during pregnancy. They provide the methyl groups required for a baby’s healthy brain and spine development, cognition, and genetic expression.
  • Eyes and Membranes: Active forms of vitamin A support normal development of brain, eyes, mucous membranes, skin, and immune function.
  • Immunity, Cognition, and Mood: Vitamin D (as D3) plays critical roles in a healthy immune system, bone growth, and cognition.
  • Antioxidants and Immune Defenses: Vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, zinc, and CoQ10 support healthy antioxidant levels and immune defenses for you and baby.
  • Liver Health: Milk thistle supports glutathione production and liver health.
  • Digestive Comfort: Active vitamin B6 (as P-5-P) supports occasional morning sickness or upset stomach during pregnancy.
  • Optimal Genetic Expression: Key nutrients support healthy MTHFR, BC01, and GST/GPX genes, along with many other enzymes and genes that are crucial for cell division, pregnancy, and healthy fertility.
Choline was left out of this prenatal chewable tablet to assure a pleasant taste and smell for those who may be extra sensitive during pregnancy. Consider Optimal PC as a dietary supplement source of phosphatidylcholine to support choline production.

Iron is not added to any of our prenatals. This makes it easy to customize your dosage by supplementing separately with a gentle form of iron. All our Seeking Health prenatal vitamins are gluten-free.

It is recommended to start taking prenatals several months before trying to conceive. Prenatal Essentials Chewable can be taken before, during, and after pregnancy to support:
  • Healthy fertility
  • Pregnancy health
  • Normal fetal development
  • Postpartum recovery
  • Breastfeeding
Get ready to feel energized, comfortable, and confident, knowing that you are providing the essential nutrients needed to support your baby’s development. With hundreds of positive reviews, Prenatal Essentials Chewable has helped thousands of mothers achieve the pregnancy and breastfeeding support that they wish for.

Best prenatal out there

Took these during my entire pregnancy and they (along with a few additional supplements recommended in Dr Lynch’s pregnancy protocol) worked like a charm to support my growing nutritional needs—especially with a compound heterozygous MTHFR mutation. ~A Mom of 2

Key Ingredients In Prenatal Essentials Chewable

  • Vitamin A: Vitamin A is provided as both the precursor, beta-carotene, and the bioactive form, retinyl palmitate. These bioavailable forms accommodate common variations in the BC01 gene. Mutations in this gene can make it difficult to convert vitamin A to its active form. Vitamin A supports health of the brain, eyes, mucous membranes, skin, and immune system.
  • True Folate: Folate is provided as L-5-MTHF (methylfolate) and folinic acid (a methyl-free form). These bioavailable forms are readily recognized and utilized by your body. True folate is required for proper methylation in both you and baby. It supports healthy gene expression, spine and brain development, and DNA/RNA synthesis.
  • Bioavailable B12: 'Adeno' and 'Methyl' forms of vitamin B12 are included in this formula. These bioavailable forms act as coenzymes in your body to power important enzymes. Bioactive B12 supports healthy energy production and is required to utilize folate for methylation processes.
  • Chelated Minerals: The minerals in this formula are bonded with amino acids. This makes them recognizable by your body for optimal utilization and absorption.
  • Milk Thistle: Key for promoting glutathione production and healthy liver protection.
  • Lutein & Zeaxanthin: Marigold flower extract provides these important carotenoids that support healthy vision and eye development.

Why Prenatal Essentials Chewable Works

Prenatal Essentials Chewable was formulated based on the enzymatic pathways involved in pregnancy and genetic development. Enzymes in these pathways require specific nutrients as cofactors. Arguably the most important of these nutrients are folate and B12 in their most superior, bioavailable forms. Without them, the fetus cannot effectively develop or express its genetics.

Your MTHFR gene converts and produces methylfolate (5-MTHF) from whole foods. However, MTHFR gene variations or lifestyle stress can slow down this gene, causing folate deficiency. It is estimated that over 50% of the population has a mutation in their MTHFR gene.

Ironically, the artificial version of folate that is often prescribed to pregnant women, called folic acid, can slow the MTHFR gene even more. Folic acid is never included in any of Seeking Health’s dietary supplements. Instead, we use natural and bioavailable forms, including 5-MTHF (methylated) and methyl-free folinic acid (calcium folinate).

By supplementing with the natural form of folate as 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), you bypass the MTHFR enzyme. Pre-formed 5-MTHF provides a methyl group attached to folate that can be used in the methylation cycle.

The active or methylated form of vitamin B12 is called methylcobalamin. It is essential for proper folate utilization, methylation, DNA expression, and much more.

Prenatal Essentials Chewable contains bioavailable methylfolate and methylcobalamin to support optimal genetic development. It has many of the essential nutrients you need for a healthy pregnancy. No more, no less. If you’re seeking a formula that covers your prenatal bases without the excess, then Prenatal Essentials Chewable was designed for you.

How to Enhance Prenatal Essentials Chewable

1

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 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.

2

Pairs Well With

Optimal Iron Chewable, if iron supplementation is needed. Consider 2 hours apart from Prenatal Essentials Chewable for optimal calcium absorption. Optimal DHA, a clean and pure fish oil source of prenatal DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids for healthy brain development and cognition. Optimal PC, as a source of phosphatidylcholine to support choline synthesis. Choline is required in higher amounts during pregnancy to support healthy brain and neural tube development.

Why is Prenatal Essentials Chewable not suitable for vegans?

Prenatal Essentials Chewable is suitable for vegetarians. The vitamin D3 is derived from sheep’s wool, making Prenatal Essentials Chewable unsuitable for some vegans. This vitamin D3, however, is derived from wool that is sheared from live healthy sheep, so no animals are harmed in the process.

Love that they are methyl free but wish they didn’t have copper in them.

I have been taking these through most of my pregnancy and love that they are methyl free! They don’t make me feel sick like some other prenatals. I also love that they don’t have iron. I really wish that they also didn’t have copper - seems very unnecessary in this supplement. I also didnt notice before that they have a prop 65 warning for lead. That is alarming to me. On the fence about whether to continue ordering or not.

Seeking Health

Hi Emily,

Good Morning! Thank you for your feedback. The element that Prop 65 refers to in our products is lead. Lead is naturally occurring in water and soil, and plants soak it up from the soil when they grow.
It is virtually impossible to avoid. The product tests for trace amounts of lead. Prop 65 allows for .5 MCG of lead per day the FDA allows for 75 MCG of lead per day. This label is on just about everything in the state of California including drinking fountains, the rides at Disneyland toothpaste etc. We legally don't need to ship our products with that label to anywhere but California state, but we decided to be transparent about it and ship them worldwide with that label. For more information please check out this infographic This is on the front page of seekinghealth.com:

http://resources.seekinghealth.com/california-proposition-65-infographic

Here is also a really great article that came out recently that dives into the Prop 65 issue: https://www.popsci.com/california-coffee-cancer-warning#page-2
