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.

MTHFR and Fibromyalgia
I started taking this 2 months before trying to conceive. So far I feel good and haven't had any reactions. It's giving me piece of mind! Review by Jenica (Posted on 2/1/2018)
Great prenatal
I chose this prenatal because it has methylated B vitamins, and also has everything else I was looking for, such as vitamin K and magnesium. It doesn't have iron. You have to take 8 pills to get the full amount, but I just take a few with every meal and it doesn't seem like too many. Review by B (Posted on 1/31/2018)
Definitely feel better when taking these. Review by Harper (Posted on 1/21/2018)
Expecting baby # 9. Until now I had yet to find a vitamin that made me feel good, and didn't make me physically ill. I Started taking this a few weeks ago. I love it! I am not sick from it and my body has more energy when I take it. I can tell when I've forgotten because I don't feel as good. It's also safe for those with mthfr mutation which is a huge plus. The only negative I can think of is you have to take 8 pills a day. Which can be hard when you can barely keep anything down. Review by Emily (Posted on 1/11/2018)

Absolutely love this brand and have seen great results since I started taking this prenatal vitamin! Review by Maria (Posted on 1/5/2018)
Great vitamin and game-changer!
Having taken the advice of a health care professional, I began taking the Seeking Health prenatal vitamins. She takes them and recommended that I do the same. Wow, what a difference these have made in my life! Prior to taking these, I was taking lots of supplements that I purchased at various drug stores, online, etc. Well, one doesn't necessarily know all the ingredients that are included in these products. Those were certainly inferior to what I can purchase with Seeking Health. Here at Seeking Health, I feel confident that the products are beneficial for us and the prenatal vitamins have enabled me to get through my day as a kindergarten teacher without feeling totally exhausted when I return home from a full day's work! This is a game-changer for me. Out with the OLD vitamins; in with ONLY Seeking Health products forever! Review by Mary (Posted on 1/2/2018)
The best prenatal vitamin, especially for those with Hashimotos
I've been taking this all year pre-pregnancy, durring, and am planning on taking it post-natal durring the time I breastfeed. I chose this prenatal based on the contents. I've researched how to have a healthy pregnancy with thyroid disease (hashimotos), finding a prenatal with folate & more AND I didn't want Iron in the prenatal. This was the only brand that I could find that supported my research. Iron and Calcium taken together, fights for absorprion and the two also can interfer with thyroid replacement absorption. So the more control I have in timing, the better. I do take a separate iron supplement, and glad I do because I've had to consistantly increase my dose through pregnancy and probably will through breastfeeding. Review by Krystal (Posted on 1/1/2018)
The best prenatal/postnatal you can take, especially for MTHFR
When I discovered I have a couple of MTHFR mutations, I learned about Seeking Health and changed all of my supplements to this brand, except for the ones I was already taking by my functional medicine doctor. I was 18 months into nursing at the time. I had the typical reaction of switching to the proper supplements for MTHFR the first two weeks (jittery, irritable), but then that all went away and I felt SO much better! I have been taking them ever since. I'm now pregnant with our second child and I'm so glad I started out with these prenatals from the beginning. Last time I was using MegaFood prenatals (not sure if Seeking Health existed yet) and they were okay but not of the quality compared to Seeking Health (and now MegaFood has been discovered to be terrible, sadly).

The one thing I noticed with this pregnancy and taking these prenatals is that I have to take them with food (which is SO hard if you are experiencing nausea, which I had for 16 straight weeks). Taking so many pills per day when your gag reflex is high and you're constantly nauseated isn't easy, so if you simply can't swallow pills (some women can't for a while), take the chewable version instead. I learned NOT to take them with anything citrusy or I would definitely vomit within 30 minutes, so take that into consideration as well.

Again, I'm so glad these exist! I will continue to take them as long as I'm pregnant and nursing and then I'll switch to the regular Optimal Multi (which my husband takes with great success, as he has MTHFR as well).
Review by Kara (Posted on 1/1/2018)
I wish I'd had this five years ago.
Now trying to catch up nutritionally after five years of pregnancy or breastfeeding, and get ready for round #3. I can't believe how different the world has looked after the first few days on this product! The most noticeable change is in my ability to respond to emotional stress. Or what used to be stressful to me. My mood is much more even and optimistic. I have been reluctant to try other products because of my limited understanding of potential quality problems--keeping track of so many different forms of so many vitamins, minerals, acids, and then how they are blended, etc. Those that I have tried, on others' recommendation, I either couldn't keep down or felt gave little improvement. I appreciate the level of information provided here and the obvious commitment to quality. I finally dove in and paid the money. It's not worth facing panic attacks and PTSD again. No regrets so far! Review by Heather (Posted on 12/30/2017)
Highly recommended
This is a great prenatal, and a great investment in your baby's health. Review by Katie (Posted on 12/24/2017)
Great product!
Will definitely be reordering. This is a super high quality prenatal! Review by Channa (Posted on 12/20/2017)
Pricey but a life-saver
As someone who has trouble with folic acid absorption, these were a life-saver. My fertility increased, I conceived a healthy baby without the bleeding I was having on folic acid, and my moods were more stable. Thank you. Review by Rebecca (Posted on 12/18/2017)
great product
Taking 8 pills might seem like a chore, but I like that everything is spread out throughout the day. I think it helps with absorption. I started four supplements from here at the same time, but I have had a noticeable reduction in my hypothyroid symptoms. Review by Amber (Posted on 12/10/2017)
I love SH products, great quality. Took these throughout my pregnancy and now breastfeeding, absolutely love them. Review by Alex (Posted on 10/12/2017)
Easy to swallow
I agree that it is pricey and I do wish there was iron in it but I also realize not everyone needs iron. With that said, the vitamins have no odor and are very easy to swallow and tolerate while pregnant. I have been using for many months and at first, the eight pills a day were a bit much but you get used to it and it quickly becomes the norm. Review by AJ (Posted on 10/7/2017)
Best prenatal available
I am thrilled by this prenatal. Yes you have to take more pills, but if it means I'm getting the RIGHT nutrients for my MTHFR and my baby then it's worth it. They don't make me sick and I like that they are in gel cap rather than compressed pill form. Review by Ashley (Posted on 10/7/2017)
I am very satisfied with this prenatal! It's such a relief to know this prenatal is MTHFR safe, and I don't have to worry about it doing more harm than good. Really love this product! Review by Mick (Posted on 9/30/2017)
This is a wonderful product. I highly recommend. I wish I didn't have to take 8 pills a day but it's worth it. (I did try the chewable which is only 2 pills a day but it was horrible tasting to me.) Love that this product has the bio-available folate too. Is perfect for MTHFR people like me. Review by Meg K (Posted on 8/28/2017)
This is the best prenatal on the market!!
You will be VERY pleased with this purchase! Review by Rachael (Posted on 8/27/2017)
The best prenatal
I love that I can take this prenatal without having to worry about the quality of the ingredients. Thank you for a great product! Review by Stephanie (Posted on 8/21/2017)
