Key Benefits and Actions
- Choose Chocolate or Vanilla
- Provides high-quality vegetarian protein and amino acids
- Includes active folates to help support healthy fetal development
- Includes active B6 and ginger to support digestive comfort
Optimal Prenatal Powder by Seeking Health provides 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 Powder may also be taken whenever the supplemental need for a potent and pure multivitamin and supplemental protein 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 Powder 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. 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.

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.†
HOW TO USE OPTIMAL PRENATAL POWDER
Blend, shake, or briskly mix one scoop of Optimal Prenatal Powder daily in filtered water or beverage of choice, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Alternatively, you may divide the dose, half scoop twice daily, in the morning and afternoon. Consider all-natural add-ins to support wellness and to provide additional nutrition and flavor. Try adding organic berries, leafy greens, healthy oils, collagen, peanut butter, chia seeds, and other superfoods to your prenatal smoothies. Do not take within 5 hours of bedtime as it may interfere with sleep.†
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their OB/GYN or healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged. Avoid if allergic to any ingredient. Consult a healthcare professional prior to use if you are taking any medications or if you are undergoing treatment for any medical condition.
It is recommended not to exceed 1,500 mcg (5,000 IU) intake per day of preformed vitamin A (retinol or retinyl forms).
Evaluate your total vitamin K intake from food and dietary supplements. If you are on medications for blood-thinning or any other reason, or undergoing treatment for any medical condition, consult a healthcare professional prior to use.
When taking high doses of nutrients such as B12 and folate, monitor blood levels and use under the supervision of a qualified physician.
Do not ingest an excessive amount of protein while pregnant or breastfeeding. Individual protein needs may vary. Consult with your healthcare professional to determine a suitable daily protein intake for your individual needs.

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.
