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.

Really good
I like these! I'm still working up to a full dose and feel really good on them. Review by Emily (Posted on 11/28/2018)
Big or Small Doses
I love how I can take an eighth of a serving and get a little boost or I can take all 8 capsules. I wish I would've discovered these during pregnancy but they're the perfect solution to my postpartum fatigue and it gives me peace of mind that I'm providing my nursing babe with the best nutrition.

Rarely took full dose
I think this is a comprehensive supplement, I would forgot to take the remaining capsules in the afternoon. I would generally find I could take 5 a day, but those last 3 hardly ever made it into my routine. Still like the Vanilla powder best. Review by AW (Posted on 11/24/2018)
Wonderful product
Great quality product with all needed vitamins. Review by Laksh (Posted on 11/16/2018)
Must have for MTHFR people
I noticed myself not getting sick, stronger immune system,etc
I used to take regular folic acid everyday for years - got sick, no luck with carrying full term, ended up with 3 miscarriages.
Since I started taking Optimal Prenatal --- I'm at 30 weeks with totally healthy baby at age 43. I completely believe Dr.Lynch's study with my own experience.
Review by MDK (Posted on 11/16/2018)
Should be the only prenatal on the market
I am 32 weeks and have been taking optimal prenatal since about 2 months preconception. This is my second pregnancy and I was on a different prenatal for the first. Even though I am working, going back to school for my masters and chasing a toddler I have had significantly more energy and less headaches this time around I feel well nourished on these and mentally clear. I will report back when baby is here but I have a feeling the methylated b vitamins for my mthfr mutation will make for a very healthy well adjusted new born. Review by Hannah (Posted on 11/12/2018)
Awesome product
Since I have been taking this my nails are growing like crazy, I notice a difference in over all health, Its flu season and I work in the hospital, I recently had a few sniffles and minor throat irritation that was it while my coworkers are calling off work. I believe this Vitamin is strengthening my immune system . Review by Loretta (Posted on 11/11/2018)
Nice Product
Excellent product. Seeking Health products are very pure. Most trusting source for supplements Review by LP (Posted on 11/8/2018)
Great Nutrients
I don't know if it is simply taking the prenatal or the combination of my wife taking it and her nutrient dense diet, but she is having minimal morning sickness this time around. She feels well nourished. Review by Carl (Posted on 11/5/2018)
Great product for people with MTHFR
This is one of the only prenatals that does NOT have "folic acid" and instead has methyl folate that's safe for people with MTHFR gene mutations, like me.
Review by Margaret (Posted on 11/2/2018)
Quality at an optimal price point
My wife loves her prenatal and has been taking it for a while. We switched from another brand and are so glad that we did!! Review by GK (Posted on 10/29/2018)
great prenatal
Thought there are 8 capsules to take a day, they have all the essentials. Review by Jessica (Posted on 10/17/2018)
The best out there!
I am very picky about what I put in my body - I had two miscarriages before learning about mthfr, I took this for my last pregnancy and now have a very healthy 2 year old and am taking it for my current pregnancy. Easy on your stomach! Review by Holly (Posted on 10/15/2018)
Best prenatal vitamin out there!
Switching to this prenatal for my second pregnancy was a huge game changer. I never got morning sickness. Review by Jamie (Posted on 10/11/2018)
Good product for mthfr
I have mthfr heretozygot gen mutation. I used this supplement during my pregnancy and still do everyday for postpartum. Highly recommended! Review by Zeynep (Posted on 10/9/2018)
Love this prenatal
I love that this prenatal has bio available forms of nutrients and added supplementation, such as choline. I don't love that it's 8 pills a day, but since it replaces most of my other supplements, it's not too cumbersome. I'd highly recommend this (and I do recommend it to all of my prenatal clients!) Review by Andrea (Posted on 10/8/2018)
quality product
I am so thankful to have found these! The quality and purity seem top notch. The only downside is that it is difficult to take so many pills. Review by Breanna (Posted on 10/1/2018)
My wife is pregnant,she finished only 30 tablets and we are going to buy more and more. She feels great! Active the whole day but i think it effects her sleep.
She likes the powder more because its easier to take one scoop a day but it's expensive.
