Who Needs Optimal Prenatal Powder

Are you concerned about nutritional deficiencies during pregnancy?

Do you have a history of pregnancy complications or preterm birth and want to support a healthy pregnancy?

If so, you may be wondering how you can best support a healthy pregnancy.

Pregnancy should be a beautiful and transformative experience. Worrying about your health and baby’s only puts more stress on this delicate time.

Are you seeking a potent and comprehensive prenatal protein powder? One that contains key nutrients needed for a healthy pregnancy? Look no further.

Optimal Prenatal Powder is a powerful, nutrient-dense prenatal protein powder.

This unique plant-based protein powder was formulated by epigenetics expert, Dr. Ben Lynch. The formula resulted from years of research into epigenetics, fertility, and pregnancy, including the MTHFR gene variation. It is designed for women who may have experienced pregnancy complications in the past, need more intense nutritional support, and want to support a healthy pregnancy. This includes supporting those experiencing nutritional deficiencies and supporting healthy fertility.

As a high-quality source of protein, Optimal Prenatal Powder contains pea protein isolate. It is available in delicious chocolate and vanilla flavors. Each serving provides 14 grams of protein. Both flavors are dairy-free and soy-free. They provide a full spectrum of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and other prenatal nutrients needed to support your growing baby. Simply blend this prenatal vitamin powder into your morning smoothie or mix with your liquid of choice.

It is recommended to start taking prenatal vitamins several months before trying to conceive. Optimal Prenatal Powder can be taken before, during and after your pregnancy.

Continue Optimal Prenatal Powder after birth to support breastfeeding and postpartum recovery. In fact, it can be used by anyone seeking a nutrient-dense multivitamin protein powder. This includes men looking to optimize their preconception health!

Optimal Prenatal Powder has helped thousands of mothers to support healthy fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and postpartum recovery. Women love that it’s easy on the stomach. This is particularly important if you experience occasional morning sickness!

They are free of artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, and unnecessary additives.

Hundreds of 5-star reviews point to Seeking Health’s Optimal Prenatal Powder as one of the best protein powders on the market.

Customer Review

The Best Prenatal I Have Ever Had!!

This is honestly a game changer. This was the best prenatal I have ever tried. I did not experience any morning sickness my entire pregnancy !! I ordered the chocolate flavor and it tasted delicious. I have the capsules as well and they work great but I find having the shake easier personally for me plus you can add some fruit to make it even tastier and healthier :) I loved this product so much I continued to use it while nursing. ~Courtney G.

Key Ingredients In Optimal Prenatal Powder

  • Plant-Based Protein: Proprietary blend made of 90% protein by weight. Excellent digestibility. Well-balanced amino acid profile.
  • Vitamin A: Provides the bioavailable form, as retinyl palmitate, to support common BC01 gene variations for optimal eye, mucus membrane, and immune system health.
  • True Folate: Features folate in its bioavailable, active forms of L-5-MTHF (methylfolate) and folinic acid (calcium folinate). Folate supports spine and brain development, healthy genetic expression, and DNA/RNA synthesis.
  • Bioavailable B12: Active forms of B12 are included to support your body’s utilization of folate. Methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin are known as superior forms of vitamin B12 that your body can readily utilize.
  • Choline: Essential for healthy brain development, methylation processes, cell wall strength, and genetic expression during fetal development.
  • Milk Thistle: Key for supporting glutathione production and liver health.
  • Red Raspberry Leaf: Can help support uterine strength and health during labor.
  • Ginger Root & B6: Support stomach comfort and digestion due to occasional nausea or morning sickness.

Why Optimal Prenatal Powder Works

A balanced diet coupled with a high-quality prenatal vitamin can go a long way to promote a healthy pregnancy.

Doctors routinely recommend folate and B12 during pregnancy. These essential nutrients are well-known to reduce the risk of neural tube defects (i.e., spina bifida), as well as other birth defects and pregnancy complications.

Optimal Prenatal Powder was formulated by an epigenetics expert based on the enzymatic pathways involved in pregnancy and genetic development. Arguably, the most critical nutrients required for these pathways are folate and B12.

Optimal Prenatal Powder contains B12 and folate in their methylated forms. Your body needs these active forms for proper methylation, which is essential for healthy fetal development.

Your MTHFR gene converts and produces folate (5-MTHF) from whole foods. However, MTHFR gene variations or lifestyle stress can slow down this gene, causing folate deficiency. It is estimated that over 50% of the population has a mutation in their MTHFR gene.

The artificial version of folate that is often prescribed to pregnant women is called folic acid. This form can slow the MTHFR gene even more. It can even lead to folate deficiency! Folic acid is never included in any of Seeking Health’s dietary supplements. Instead, we use natural and bioavailable forms of folate, including 5-MTHF (methylated) and methyl-free folinic acid (calcium folinate).

By supplementing with the natural form of folate (5-MTHF), you bypass the MTHFR gene. Pre-formed 5-MTHF provides a methyl group attached to folate that can be used in the methylation cycle.

The active or methylated form of vitamin B12 is called methylcobalamin. It is essential for proper folate utilization, methylation, DNA expression, and much more. Without sufficient levels of bioavailable folate and B12, the fetus cannot effectively develop and express its genetics.

This unique formula features vitamin D3 to support baby’s brain development. We’ve included more than 30 important nutrients for pregnancy health. Unlike some other prenatal formulas, Optimal Prenatal Powder contains choline, which is required in higher amounts during pregnancy due to accelerated cell division.

Pregnancy is hard, but choosing your prenatal doesn’t need to be. If you’re looking for one of the best prenatal protein powders on the market, Optimal Prenatal Powder is for you.

Why is Optimal Prenatal Powder not suitable for vegans?

Optimal Prenatal Powder is suitable for vegetarians. The vitamin D3 is derived from sheep’s wool, making Optimal Prenatal Powder unsuitable for some vegans. This vitamin D3, however, is derived from wool that is sheared from live healthy sheep, so no animals are harmed in the process.

So delicious and makes me feel great!

I bought this prepregnancy, and continued it postpartum. It is an excellent way to fill those nutritional gaps (highly recommend vanilla). I buy this instead of a prenatal and protein powder separately. Thanks so much for making this product it’s so yummy!

Great Product

I was needing some extra nutrients after dealing with some health issues the past few years. So far I have really enjoyed this protein powder. It tastes great! It gives me that nutrition I need. If I drink it for breakfast around 8am I can usually last until 1 for lunch. That is huge for me I usually need a snack around 10 because I feel weak. I mix organic blueberry’s,strawberry’s ,oat milk and chia seeds.

Not great but worth the variety

Wish it didn’t have sunflower oil in it, but I love having a comprehensive prenatal option other than pills. The flavor isn’t great and has a typical plant-based protein powder texture, but blend it with some berries, spinach, and cucumber and it’s manageable.
