Prenatal Essentials Chewable
- Delicious, sugar-free prenatal chewable vitamins
- Concise prenatal formula supports healthy spine and brain development
- Bioavailable folate and B12 support optimal genetic development
Too many prenatals on the market contain too many ingredients. When it comes to growing a healthy baby, more is not necessarily better.† Getting too much of one nutrient can deplete another or cause adverse effects.
If you already live a healthy lifestyle, and eat a balanced diet, you may only need a few essential nutrients to support a healthy pregnancy.†
Prenatal Essentials Chewable is a targeted prenatal vitamin formulated by epigenetics expert, Dr. Ben Lynch ND.†
It provides the foundational basics needed for a healthy pregnancy. No more, no less.†
If you can relate to one or more of the following statements, then Prenatal Essentials Chewable may help to support the health and development of your baby from preconception all the way through breast feeding.
Dr. Lynch created this formula after years of research into epigenetics, fertility, and pregnancy, including the MTHFR gene variation. It is designed for women who require a lower-strength formula (compared to our high-strength Optimal Prenatal). Compared to our Prenatal Essentials capsules, this chewable version contains CoQ10 and milk thistle for additional detoxification and antioxidant support.†
Prenatal Essentials Chewable features well-absorbed vitamins and chelated minerals. Your body (and baby’s body) can easily recognize and utilize these bioavailable forms. Supporting wellness and comfort during pregnancy has never been easier. Now, you can cover your prenatal bases with just two delicious chewable tablets a day!†
Superior and bioavailable forms of key pregnancy nutrients promote healthy:†
Choline was left out of this prenatal chewable tablet to assure a pleasant taste and smell for those who may be extra sensitive during pregnancy. Consider Optimal PC as a dietary supplement source of phosphatidylcholine to support choline production.†
Iron is not added to any of our prenatals. This makes it easy to customize your intake by supplementing separately with a gentle form of iron. All our Seeking Health prenatal vitamins are gluten-free.†
It is recommended to start taking prenatals several months before trying to conceive. Prenatal Essentials Chewable can be taken before, during, and after pregnancy to support:†
Get ready to feel energized, comfortable, and confident, knowing that you are providing the essential nutrients needed to support your baby’s development. With hundreds of positive reviews, Prenatal Essentials Chewable has helped thousands of mothers achieve the pregnancy and breastfeeding support that they wish for.†
Optimizing Lives of Unborn ChildrenTM
Took these during my entire pregnancy and they (along with a few additional supplements recommended in Dr Lynch’s pregnancy protocol) worked like a charm to support my growing nutritional needs—especially with a compound heterozygous MTHFR mutation. ~A Mom of 2
Prenatal Essentials Chewable was formulated based on the enzymatic pathways involved in pregnancy and genetic development. Enzymes in these pathways require specific nutrients as cofactors. Arguably the most important of these nutrients are folate and B12 in their most superior, bioavailable forms. Without them, the fetus cannot effectively develop or express its genetics.†
Your MTHFR gene converts and produces methylfolate (5-MTHF) from whole foods. However, MTHFR gene variations and 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.†
Ironically, the artificial version of folate that is often prescribed to pregnant women, called folic acid, can slow the MTHFR gene even more. Folic acid is never included in any of Seeking Health’s dietary supplements. Instead, we use natural and bioavailable forms, including 5-MTHF (methylated) and methyl-free folinic acid (calcium folinate).†
By supplementing with the natural form of folate as 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), you bypass the MTHFR enzyme. 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.†
Prenatal Essentials Chewable contains bioavailable methylfolate and methylcobalamin to support optimal genetic development. It has many of the essential nutrients you need for a healthy pregnancy. No more, no less. If you’re seeking a formula that covers your prenatal bases without the excess, then Prenatal Essentials Chewable was designed for you.†

I don’t swallow pills so I open or chew everything. I mean, I’ve tried the worst stuff out there but for some reason I want to vomit anytime I take these. I have three bottles and haven’t been able to be consistent because they’re so disgusting. They also make me feel sick if i take the two at the same time. So I have to separate them throughout the day.
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback! I'm sorry these chewable tablets are not a good fit for you. I would suggest trying our capsules version of the Prenatal Essentials as they are tasteless and odorless. We also have our Optimal Prenatal Powder with collagen (vanilla) that most people really enjoy the taste.
Love these chewables. I’ve been taking them for 2 years as I’m still breastfeeding and they are so much easier and tastier than trying to swallow pills. I hope y’all never stop making these.
I got the chewables in case of any nausea during early pregnancy. I thought they might be easier than swallowing a large pill.
They are quite large and a little chalky so I would not recommend if you are feeling nausea. After a few days I got used to the flavor and they were easier to take. I will be switching back to the pill for personal preference.
