Optimal Start by Seeking Health is a unique multivitamin free of copper, iron, calcium, B12 and folate with additional supportive adaptogenic herbs. Dr. Lynch designed the Optimal Start multivitamin for those sensitive to methylated nutrients, certain minerals, and stress. This unique formulation contains a well-rounded blend of vitamins, minerals including trace elements, plus herbal extracts for stress support, immune system health and antioxidant support. A complex of active B vitamins is included to help support healthy energy metabolism, nervous system health, and normal metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Vitamin B12 and methylfolate are excluded from this complex to provide a specialized formula for those who are not able to tolerate supplemental methylation support or who are just starting out on a methylation support protocol, or for those who wish to add these important B vitamins into their regimen at their own pace. The gentle, chelated minerals are provided in well-absorbed forms without iron, copper, iodine and calcium, which may require more precise dosage control for individuals with thyroid or adrenal concerns.*

Herbal extracts provide additional support for this multivitamin and mineral blend. Shilajit extract is included to optimize nutrient absorption. A unique blend of adaptogenic herbs, including ashwagandha and Siberian ginseng, may bolster the body’s healthy response to stress while helping to support healthy adrenal glands. Fat-soluble vitamins A and E, a potent dose of vitamin C, and 50 mg of CoQ10 may help provide support for the body’s antioxidant and immune defense systems.*

For a more inclusive multivitamin with a comprehensive B vitamin complex, consider our Optimal Multivitamin or Optimal Multivitamin Plus. For a once daily multivitamin without methylated B vitamins, try our Optimal Multivitamin Minus One.

Starts here. I was a skeptic but out of desperation I decided to go all in and follow Dr Lynch. Thank goodness I did. I have had such a turn around. If you are thinking about taking this journey this is where it begins and trust me when I say it will be worth it in the end. Review by BeDizzy (Posted on 11/23/2018)

This is a trusted product I love because it’s a multi-vitamin with methylated folate...which is instrumental when you have MTHFR. Review by Michelle (Posted on 11/20/2018)

I chose Optimal Start because I was not certain I wished to try folate yet but felt a need to start somewhere. I like the adaptogens in the supplement and have noticed increased energy from the Optimal Start as well a greater sense of calm from the adaptogens. This was my first purchase with the Seeking Health line and I will purchase another multi when I finish these. Review by Lori (Posted on 11/5/2018)

I am very sensitive to multivitamins, but low in energy, so I know I need one. The herbs added are great and knowing it doesn’t contain iron is very important! Thanks Review by Caroline (Posted on 11/5/2018)

My first multi I started with while starting my Dirty Genes Protocol. I am very sensitive to methyl supplements, so having the ability to tolerate a multi vitamin everyday works out great for me. On the side, I've been able to, slowly, add-in my methyl supplements. Great multi-vitamin to start out with. I highly recommend! Review by Dionne (Posted on 8/17/2018)

When I heard all abt Dr Lynch's discovery of bad methylation, I was so excited! This seems to be what my husbands been suffering from for so many years- all the symptoms fit! This is a great base for him to stick to, no matter what else he's taking! Review by Shif (Posted on 7/25/2018)

Best multi for someone who wants to introduce B12, Folate separately to see how they impact the body
Effectiveness

Noticeable difference in absorption of the B vitamins in this supplement as compared to other brands I've tried. I also love that it only includes the basics, allowing me to add in B12, Folate, Iron, etc. separately in order to notice their impact or not in my body. Experimenting with what my body needs and how it responds, and Optimal Start has been so helpful for that. Great starter vitamin! Review by Smiles (Posted on 7/3/2018)

I also love what is not in this as much as what is in it. I love that there are no fillers and no junk and it’s has such a variety of nutrients in it, it’s much simpler to take Optimal Start instead of several different supplements to get the same results. Review by K (Posted on 2/27/2018)
