Undoubtedly, every mother-to-be wants the same thing: a happy, healthy child. There is nothing more important than that when a baby is on the horizon (or just a twinkle of hope).
There’s no doubt that prenatal health starts even BEFORE a woman conceives…
… and it doesn’t end, even after you give birth.
Many birth defects and significant pediatric conditions are caused by inadequate nutrition before, during, and after pregnancy.
So pregnancy and preconception are the ideal times to practice preventative health care.
It is critical to provide the best supplements for the mom-to-be and her developing child.
In fact, a mom’s nutrition and nutrient support is, quite possibly, the most important aspect of her pregnancy.
For instance, deficiencies in vitamin D during pregnancy are linked to preterm labor, preeclampsia and infections - all of which are dangerous to both the mother AND her baby.
Moreover, the commonly used synthetic version of vitamin D, D2, is often considered inferior. So a mom might think she’s doing the right thing, but still misses the mark for optimal health.
The simple truth is that just grabbing any supplement does not work.
MANY supplements aren’t sourced properly and do not provide the bioavailability a new mom (or mom-to-be) - or her baby - really needs.
That is one of the key reasons Dr. Ben Lynch started his award-winning supplement company, Seeking Health, to ensure that when it came to sourcing and bioavailability, there was a product line that was actually going to WORK (and not just get flushed away, unabsorbed, due to low bioavailability). *
That is why we are proud that our full Optimal Prenatal Product Line was recognized as a recipient of the Women’s Choice Award® for 2017 and 2018!
Another key goal was to support growing families, women, and especially pregnant moms, by helping them to understand what bioavailability means - and how a body USES nutrients.
We help educate our community on how to approach health through diet, lifestyle, mental and nutritional needs. (You can find our ever-growing Learning Center on our website, providing cutting-edge research articles, FAQ's, comparison charts, and quick-view fact tables.)

“When eating to nourish two, your body naturally needs a greater intake of nutrients. You may benefit from a prenatal vitamin or increased intake of specific nutrients. Pregnant, breastfeeding, or women in the preconception stages need a myriad of nutrients every day.” - Dr. Ben Lynch
At Seeking Health, we are here to constantly and consistently support you to improve your life and health, but our true passion? It’s prevention.
Optimal Prenatal vitamin contains folate in one of the most biologically available forms, L-5-MTHF, which is essential during pregnancy to support healthy brain development. *
And it’s formulated with other nutrients and cofactors that work with L-5-MTHF and other vitamins, such as B12 and macronutrient choline. Together these help with a process that's vital for DNA synthesis.*
Among its many benefits, choline is a critical nutrient for cognitive development.* And sadly choline deficiency is very common in pregnant and lactating women.
Many women choose to use the Optimal Prenatal vitamins daily, both while pregnant AND while breastfeeding. Remember, it is important to continue to nourish yourself when you are breastfeeding. You are still nourishing two lives, and if you become depleted, your baby can be depleted also.
We are here to see our community live better and consistently improve the lives of our moms, moms-to-be and children - from conception and all through life.
