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.

Superior Prenatal
In very impressed with the quality of ingredients and additional nutrients that's aren't included in any other prenatal supplement out there. This supplement includes high amounts of vitamin D, choline which assists brain development, and herbs.

Research any ingredient you aren't familiar with and how it assists in fetus development. Then see how no other competitor includes it in their supplement.
Review by Very satisfied (Posted on 5/19/2016)
Tough when pregnant
This is an awesome supplement ingredient wise, but the size of the pills and SMELL/TASTE is a killer when you'e pregnant and dealing with morning sickness. Review by Meg (Posted on 3/29/2016)
OK, but a little bit worry

Multivitamins are good , but I'm not sure about the vitamin A since it contains retinyl palmitate. I hope that it will not hurd my baby,
Review by Margaret (Posted on 3/22/2016)
Fabtastic Product
I started taking this product about 3 months prior to pregnancy as part of my preconception care program. I am now 28 weeks pregnant and have been having a dream pregnancy. My energy has been fantastic and I haven't been plagued with the usual pregnancy symptoms. I have not had a single second of nausea. This product is very expensive when ordering from Australia as I do, however it is a small price to pay for looking and feeling fantastic throughout my pregnancy. I cannot recommend it enough. Review by naturopathAus (Posted on 3/19/2016)
Awesome, but concerned about too much vitamin E
It's just awesome to have found a prenatal specifically formulated for women with MTHFR mutations. I'm just concerned about the vitamin E dosage, since I read that more then 12 to 16mg per day could cause heart problems to the foetus. Review by Fernanda (Posted on 2/17/2016)
I've been taking this prenatal due to my MTHFR mutation for folic acid

I have low iron, and the prenatal doesn't contain iron. What's a good supplement that's iron only, to add during my pregnancy?
Review by Libbie (Posted on 11/4/2015)
Happy with my product and experience
I purchased these online as they were recommended by a naturopath. I have MTHFR homozygeous. Although it's a challenge to take the 8 tablets spaced out over the day I am relieved and happy to have found such a great product. I had questions about the used by date of the product and these were answered quickly, thank you. Review by Tegan (Posted on 11/4/2015)
Love this prenatal but I have to take prednisone and the betaine in it is a big no no. Do you have any other prenatals without the betaine ?? Review by Kate (Posted on 10/19/2015)
Love this vitamin
I've been using this vitamin for 30 days or so and love it. Easy to take, no after taste or weird tasting burps. It has so many nutrients and it is less expensive than my previous prenatal vitamin by Xymogen.

I also appreciate the smiley face I get on my receipt and the opportunities for discounts. Thanks!
Review by Nina (Posted on 10/14/2015)
Great for MTHFR
Great prenatal vitamin for those with MTHFR. Really helps with energy and mood, on top of providing important nutrients. Review by JS (Posted on 9/8/2015)
The Best
I have homozygous MTHFR mutation of the A variety and decided I should cover my bases by taking a prenatal vitamin with methylfolate. I'm really glad I did. I'm now 35 weeks pregnant and have so far defied my OB's prediction that I would deliver preterm. I attribute this to excellent nutrition, meticulous dental hygiene and the best supplements money could buy. For me, this included copious probiotics, Seeking Health's Optimal Fish Oil, Optimal PC and Optimal Vegetarian Prenatal Vitamins.

I prefer the prenatal vitamin capsules over the prenatal protein powder (my first purchase) because I take them 4 times daily and feel that I absorb the vitamins better. In fact, this prenatal vitamin is the only one I've tried that doesn't make me produce bright yellow pee - meaning, I'm not urinating a lot of the vitamins out, but actually absorbing them.That's huge.
Review by Robin (Posted on 8/31/2015)
good stuff!
I have homozygous C677T but have no issues with my health due to it. However I decided to use this product pre-conception to make sure I had plenty of correct form folate. Also when I looked into the other ingredients it seems to cover all the bases and then some in regard to other necessary vitamins etc. and I am still using it at a lesser dosage while breastfeeding. My baby was born big and healthy after an easy pregnancy and I'm 44. I think the supplementation was helpful to the good outcome. I also supplemented with ubiquinol and additional folate for the first few months. I found the routine of having the capsules 3 times a day wasn't an issue. Thanks for making a good and comprehensive product. Review by Esh (Posted on 8/25/2015)
I trust this product.
I started taking this once I found out I had the MTHFR mutation. I trust this product. Order #1310075709 Review by Kate (Posted on 8/3/2015)
Good prenatal vitamin
Contains the methylated vitamins necessary for a healthy pregnancy to any mother with MTHFR. Review by J (Posted on 6/22/2015)
A truly complete prenatal
I found Seeking Health and this prenatal under the recommendation of a friend, after we received our son's prenatal diagnosis of Trisomy 21. I was compelled to learn all that I could to be able to provide him with the very best nutritional foundation, even while he was in my womb. So finding this prenatal with folate, choline, and no iron was a tremendous blessing. I value the energy it gives me as well, and have continued to reach for this particular prenatal even with my current pregnancy.
Review by Mara (Posted on 3/23/2015)
Great prenatal vitamin. Contains methylated B-vitamins. Easy to swallow capsules.
Review by JS (Posted on 3/11/2015)
Best prenatal
I have tried so many other good prenatal vitamins, but Dr lynch compounded this prenatal and is highly knowledgeable. I have researched so many and finally found one that included everything in one bottle, especially folate, pure forms of chelated minerals, iodine, andCholine .
This is best prenatal i have found on the market. Even though its expensive its worth it to buy. I would be more happy to get with iron (at least 25 mg) with people who have low iron.

Reason we don't include iron is because it competes with the calcium. We offer Optimal Iron Plus Cofactors for those needing iron.
Review by sowjanya (Posted on 2/16/2015)
This product is perfect!
This product is exactly what I have been looking for - it contains folate instead of folic acid and the metabolized forms of vitamins B12 and B5. Review by Shawna (Posted on 2/14/2015)
No More Heartburn
I am 11 weeks pregnant and have had terrible heartburn until I started these vitamins. I attribute this to the HCL that's in the vitamins. I've never seen that ingredient included in other prenatal vitamins. Taking the bottle to show my Ob. today. Review by Rachel (Posted on 2/4/2015)
Healthy baby
I'm very impressed with the Optimal Prenatal capsules - I'm homozygous C677T and in my mid 30's, and just had my 12-week pregnancy scan - baby is healthy and I'm at the lowest possible risk for all chromosomal abnormalities, which I think is at least in part thanks to these vitamins (which I've been taking for 6 months now). Worth the money! Review by Lara (Posted on 10/28/2014)
