Optimal Prenatal Capsules by Seeking Health provide 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 Capsules may also be taken whenever the supplemental need for a potent and pure multivitamin exists.*

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 Capsules 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.*

Optimal Prenatal does NOT include iron as some women do not process iron well or do not need iron supplementation. If iron supplementation is needed, consider Optimal Iron Plus Cofactors; for a gentle, well-absorbed chelated iron.*

For those who have trouble swallowing capsules, consider our great-tasting, naturally flavored Optimal Prenatal Chewable or Optimal Prenatal Protein Powder – available in creamy vanilla or chocolate.

Suggested Use

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.


Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged. Avoid if allergic to any ingredient. Do not exceed 5,000 IU intake per day of preformed vitamin A. Evaluate total vitamin K intake from food and supplements if you are taking blood-thinning medications. Consult a healthcare professional prior to use if you are taking any medications or if you are undergoing treatment for any medical condition. When taking high doses of nutrients such as B12 and folate, monitor blood levels and use under the supervision of a qualified physician.

Good product
My friend bought this product. Review by Seval (Posted on 2/7/2019)
Great choice - midwife recommended
My midwife sent me to this brand because of quality. I've had 2 miscarriages (1 healthy, perfect girl) and she ONLY wanted me to take this prenatal.
I feel wonderful energy, doesn't make me nauseous and I don't question the quality at all!
Review by Riva (Posted on 2/4/2019)
All time favorite prenatal
I have experience taking many different brands of prenatals, and this is my all time favorite. The ingredients are carefully researched and formulated, and I appreciate this prenatal so much. I have taken it through an entire pregnancy and was blessed with an extremely healthy, strong baby. I definitely recommend! Review by Katie (Posted on 1/30/2019)
I have tried many, but my next pregnancy, I am not taking any chances. I feel AWESOME on this prenatal and know that it has all the right forms of vitamins I need with MTHFR. Love! Review by Rhandi (Posted on 1/30/2019)
Great, but
I really like this prenatal as an individual and healthcare practitioner. The composition of nutrients is great. However, I don’t like that it contains ascorbyl palmitate (which contains palm oil). Review by Abigail (Posted on 1/20/2019)
Easy to dose, good quality
This is a very good product for most of pregnant women. Review by Ioana (Posted on 1/16/2019)
pregnant in the first month of trying!
I am homozygous MTHFR a1298c, with a few other mutations along for the ride. I started taking these amazing prenatals two months ago, dreaming of getting pregnant.

We got pregnant the first month of trying.

Thank you Seeking Health. You have really changed my life.
Review by Gigi (Posted on 1/15/2019)
Excellent choice
I have MTHFR with a history of multiple miscarriages. These vitamins have been the best choice for my overall health. Taken them daily for about 2 years and have not been disappointed with the quality and results! Review by Jessica (Posted on 1/9/2019)
Excellent Product
I am very picky about my supplements and this one definitely makes the cut! I greatly appreciate that the combination of vitamins is balanced without counteractive combinations that so often occur with other multivitamins. It is difficult to find the best combination and I highly recommend this one to any pregnant or breastfeeding individual! Review by NP (Posted on 1/9/2019)
Physician Recommended
As a doctor practicing alternative medicine for 30 years I have to say I am so tired of asking my patients who are mothers to be about their prenatal vitamin and having them say "it's a prescription prenatal from my doctor." They are garbage without exception. I heartily recommend Seeking Health prenatal vitamins. Review by Clifford (Posted on 1/2/2019)
Great product
Very well made supplement. The only negative for me was taking 8 pills a day. I found it hard to get them all down throughout the day. I tried taking them at different times during the day but would often forget to finish the entire amount. Other than that I think they are a great prenatal. Review by Joy (Posted on 12/30/2018)
This is my go-to prenatal. Taking 8 a day is often hard to do, but, they make me feel GREAT and I know the quality is superb and it has everything I need. Review by Rhandi (Posted on 12/22/2018)
Doesn't make me nauseous like others!
Love these vitamins! This is my third pregnancy and I needed the best prenatal I could find due to some autoimmune issues I am managing as well. I was so impressed that these do not make me feel nauseous like other supplements on the market! Review by Kymber (Posted on 12/19/2018)
A big difference in using this prenatal vs. my former one
With my first baby this prenatal wasn't on the market yet, so I took MegaFood's prenatal at the time (which I later learned was not all it was cracked up to be) because it supposedly had methylated folate and B12, which I knew I needed. My baby had so many visible MTHFR markers...the stork bite on the back of her neck, the "angel's kiss" on her forehead, reddish eyelids, a small hemangioma on her cheek, sacral dimples, and a lip tie that we didn't discover until she was a few weeks old (which explains my nursing issues). When she was a year old I discovered Seeking Health's Optimal prenatal and switched to these from that point forward.

A few years later I got pregnant with Baby #2 (still nursing Baby #1, so still taking SH Optimal Prenatal). This time I had to be careful not to take these prenatals on an empty stomach or I would definitely vomit, even at almost 40 weeks pregnant, so there's a tip for you new mamas-to-be...make sure you have food in your stomach first! When this baby was born it was such a big difference...no stork bites, no angels kiss, no red eyelids, no hemangioma...he looked so much healthier than his sister, it was really interesting to compare the two. He did have a tongue and lip tie (which I expected and had corrected...HUGE difference in our nursing experience...and no colic!!) and now that he's chubbier he has the sacral dimples as well, so I can tell without being tested he definitely has some MTHFR markers. But overall I know Seeking Health's Optimal Prenatal made a big difference.

One thing I will say is if you have horrible nausea like I did (both pregnancies), you might not like trying to get down 8 pills a day. I divided mine up into morning and afternoon doses, but still it is really hard to choke down any pills at all when you are perpetually nauseated. I didn't have SH's prenatal until my second pregnancy, where I was *very* sick for over 5 months, but I managed to suck it up and get down the capsules the majority of the time. I almost went with the chewable version, but I was afraid I'd have an aversion to the taste so I stuck with the pill form. After the constant nausea finally subsided at 22 weeks it was much easier to take the pills. Now I'm almost 10 months postpartum and still taking them everyday. All total I have been on these prenatals for 3 years now. I recommend them to all my mamas-to-be and hopeful mamas-to-be.
Review by KarDes (Posted on 12/16/2018)
This is a superior prenatal. With my mthfr I would get nauseated on a smaller dose. So I choose to switch to the chewable. Great! Review by Desiree (Posted on 12/16/2018)
High Quality
I have felt great on this prenatal (I tried 2 others first that made me itchy and constipated), although the only thing to note is it doesn't contain iron and I've needed to add an iron supplement heading into third trimester. I don't mind this at all though and would definitely use Optimal Prenatal again. Review by cdotsims (Posted on 12/16/2018)
Best prenatal I’ve tried
Most of the prenatals I tried gave me heartburn and left my stomach feeling off. But I feel great after taking the Seeking Health prenatal. No stomach issues! Review by Nellie (Posted on 12/13/2018)
I trust Dr. Lynch
Having led a balanced life a few years before I got pregnant ( and having B9 and other B's at very high levels naturally), I still though it was a good idea to supplement, as not all nutrients were tested beforehand. I was confronted with not being able to eat as much greens and salads as I used to, because of the toxoplamosis. I felt reassured I was still supplying the necessary B's. I did not have morning sickness or nausea, but after I started this supplement ( because of the smell) I felt is just a little bit. I think it is a small price to pay for the benefits, I am glad I found this supplement and all the video explanations online of Dr. Lynch. I also must add that I decided not to take as many pills/day as Dr Lynch recommends, as I think in my case it would be too much.

I am not a professional, I don't really know how I could accurately rate the purity, or even the quality and effectiveness of the product. I guess, we wait and see how the baby's health turn out.
Review by Irina (Posted on 12/11/2018)
Very effective!
I could not take all 8 capsules of this initially with my Mthfr. I would do smaller doses and feel great. I did switch to the chewable prenatal during the pregnancy and was able to stick to taking them daily. Had a great pregnancy. Review by Desiree (Posted on 12/9/2018)
Excellent product!!!
These were a game changer for my pregnancy! I did not know with my first pregnancy that I had MTHFR and I struggled with morning sickness (all day long) until at 18 weeks! I even had to go get IV fluids because I was so sick I'd get dehydrated. This pregnancy I find out about MTHFR and my wellness coach recommended these! OMG!!! They turned my morning sickness around! I truly believe that receiving more of what my body needs had made all the difference in the world!!!! Definitely worth the extra cost to feel so much better and stay out of the hospital this go around! Review by Crystal (Posted on 12/5/2018)
