Who Needs Prenatal Essentials Chewable

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.

  • I eat a healthy, well-balanced diet
  • I prefer chewable prenatal vitamins
  • I need just the essential nutrients to support a healthy pregnancy
  • I have a variation in my MTHFR gene
  • I need an affordable prenatal multivitamin that does not compromise quality
  • I want a prenatal that is free of gluten, dairy, soy, and unnecessary additives.
  • I have difficulty swallowing capsules

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:

  • Methylation and Nervous System: Bioavailable forms of folate and B12 plus TMG (trimethylglycine) support optimal methylation. These methyl donors feed the methylation pathway, especially during pregnancy. They provide the methyl groups required for a baby’s healthy brain and spine development, cognition, and genetic expression.
  • Eyes and Membranes: Active forms of vitamin A support normal development of brain, eyes, mucous membranes, skin, and immune function.
  • Immunity, Cognition, and Mood: Vitamin D (as D3) plays critical roles in a healthy immune system, bone growth, and cognition.
  • Antioxidants and Immune Defenses: Vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, zinc, and CoQ10 support healthy antioxidant levels and immune defenses for you and baby.
  • Liver Health: Milk thistle supports glutathione production and liver health.
  • Digestive Comfort: Active vitamin B6 (as P-5-P) supports occasional morning sickness or upset stomach during pregnancy.
  • Optimal Genetic Expression: Key nutrients support healthy MTHFR, BC01, and GST/GPX genes, along with many other enzymes and genes that are crucial for cell division, pregnancy, and healthy fertility.

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:

  • Healthy fertility
  • Pregnancy health
  • Normal fetal development
  • Postpartum recovery
  • Breastfeeding

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.

Best prenatal out there

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

Key Ingredients In Prenatal Essentials Chewable

  • Vitamin A: Vitamin A is provided as both the precursor, beta-carotene, and the bioactive form, retinyl palmitate. These bioavailable forms accommodate common variations in the BC01 gene. Mutations in this gene can make it difficult to convert vitamin A to its active form. Vitamin A supports health of the brain, eyes, mucous membranes, skin, and immune system.
  • True Folate: Folate is provided as L-5-MTHF (methylfolate) and folinic acid (a methyl-free form). These bioavailable forms are readily recognized and utilized by your body. True folate is required for proper methylation in both you and baby. It supports healthy gene expression, spine and brain development, and DNA/RNA synthesis.
  • Bioavailable B12: 'Adeno' and 'Methyl' forms of vitamin B12 are included in this formula. These bioavailable forms act as coenzymes in your body to power important enzymes. Bioactive B12 supports healthy energy production and is required to utilize folate for methylation processes.
  • Chelated Minerals: The minerals in this formula are bonded with amino acids. This makes them recognizable by your body for optimal utilization and absorption.
  • Milk Thistle: Key for promoting glutathione production and healthy liver protection.
  • Lutein & Zeaxanthin: Marigold flower extract provides these important carotenoids that support healthy vision and eye development.

Why Prenatal Essentials Chewable Works

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.

Why is Prenatal Essentials Chewable not suitable for vegans?

Prenatal Essentials Chewable is suitable for vegetarians. The vitamin D3 is derived from sheep’s wool, making Prenatal Essentials Chewable 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.

    Finally a prenatal I can take!

    I'm very happy with the chewable prenatals as I can't swallow pills. At first it tasted a little chalky but then I quickly got used to it and I don't even notice it anymore. I originally tried the prenatal powder but that one hurt my stomach I think because it's plant based which is harder for me to digest.

    Best Prenatal

    What I love about this prenatal: chewable and tastes good, makes life so much easier, especially if you’re taking lots of supplement pills already AND feeling nauseous. It contains B6 which really helps morning sickness, as well as milk thistle which is great for someone like me who had preeclampsia during my last birth.
