NEW NAME - Optimal Prenatal with Plant-Based Protein has a new name, "Optimal Prenatal Powder". This formula has some small improvements to the formula as well. This name change is part of our new branding standards to simplify and clarify product names.

These bottles now include a desiccant packet to help control moisture. Be careful not to scoop this packet into your blender or beverage.

Key Benefits and Actions*

  • Choose Chocolate or Vanilla
  • Provides high-quality vegetarian protein and amino acids
  • Includes active folates to help support healthy fetal development
  • Includes active B6 and ginger to support digestive comfort

Optimal Prenatal Powder by Seeking Health provides a comprehensive prenatal formula with a unique blend of amino acids, chelated minerals, and vitamins designed to meet the high nutritional needs of women who are pregnant or preparing for pregnancy. While this nutrient blend is specifically formulated to support healthy fetal development and prenatal nutrition, Optimal Prenatal Powder may also be taken by anyone looking for a high-quality multivitamin with supplemental protein.*

This complex formula is made with careful consideration for not only the increased demand for certain nutrients, but also for digestive sensitivity that can occur during pregnancy. This product contains L-5-MTHF, the most biologically available form of folate, which is essential to support healthy cognitive development. Optimal Prenatal also provides folinic acid, a non-methylated form of folate that can be easily converted to coenzyme forms within the body. This optimal blend of folates may work in conjunction with amino acids, chelated minerals, and other B vitamins to support normal cell growth and cardiovascular, neurologic and immune health.*

Optimal Prenatal Powder also contain two active coenzyme forms of vitamin B12: methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, which may help support healthy fetal development, energy metabolism and the methylation process. The well-balanced vitamin B complex is complete with active forms of riboflavin and B6, plus additional biotin to support healthy growth and development. Biotin may also help support healthy skin, hair and nails. Both vitamin B6 and ginger extract are special features of this formula, supporting digestive comfort.*

Vitamin A is included in two forms: beta-carotene and retinyl palmitate, to help support those who have trouble converting “provitamin A” compounds (such as beta-carotene) into the active retinyl/retinol forms. Vitamin C and coenzyme Q10 provide antioxidant support, supporting a healthy immune system and cellular integrity. Red raspberry leaf has historically been used as a tonic for pregnant women to help support circulation, uterine comfort and digestion. Trace minerals are included in their chelated forms, as amino acid-chelated minerals are typically well-absorbed and may be more easily tolerated than alternative supplemental forms. Betaine HCl is also added to support healthy digestion and optimize absorption of nutrients.*

For the same comprehensive prenatal nutrient support without the additional protein, consider our Optimal Prenatal Capsules.

A great start to the day

I am someone who has a couple of tough gene mutations. And like many of you who end up here, I have been through the ringer searching for solutions in foods and supplements that work. In fact, it is more common for things to NOT work, have the opposite effect or a completely unbeneficial effect. I have learned to start low and and usually stay towards the low end. And it works best, if I take some in the morning (1/2-1 t) and repeat a smaller dose in the afternoon.

I have been taking this for just about 1 month now and can feel it having an overall synergistic balanced effect. I take a much smaller dose than what is recommended and will keep evaluating.

I first found Dirty Genes when I was looking for a probiotic that wouldn't stuff me up and make me itchy. I found it here along with many other great items inc a book that taught me so much! Dr Ben Lynch was one of the first one to figure out more pieces of the methylation puzzle for me. Not all things work, but I have had more success here than I have with many other brands and products. I am beyond grateful.

SO gassy (+ silica gel)

I was so so excited to try this as I’ve been trying to get more protein into my plant-based diet! However, upon first use, my scoop was packed tight and there was a silica gel packet in the powder — call it preg brain, but this was not marked on the packaging, so I vitamixed it up with almond milk & spinach & fruit, and started sipping! It took me quite some time to figure out why it tasted like I was eating a receipt & glass in my smoothie. Luckily, it is not poisonous, just really inconvenient! I kept giving it a try, and found that I was having incredible gas the week I was drinking each morning. Again, it took some time to realize that my belly discomfort was linked to the smoothie, so I guess this just, for whatever reason, is not for me! Which is strange because I’ve only had this kind of reaction to milk based products in the past.

Great pick me up in the morning

I really feel the difference when I start my day with this protein mix in my smoothie. I’m currently 9mo postpartum and breastfeeding. I use 1/2 scoop per day and supplement at lunch with 2 seeking health methyl-free capsules and it’s been a great fit for me. I definitely have more energy throughout the day.
