Description Usage Supplement Facts Optimal Prenatal is a powerful, nutrient-dense prenatal multivitamin formulated by epigenetics expert, Dr. Ben Lynch. Optimal Prenatal resulted from years of research into epigenetics, fertility, and pregnancy, including the MTHFR gene variation. It is designed for women who need more intense nutritional support and want to support a healthy pregnancy. This includes those experiencing nutritional deficiencies, pregnancy complications, or difficulty conceiving.* Doctors recommend folate and B12 during pregnancy. These essential nutrients are known to reduce the risk of neural tube defects (e.g., spina bifida), as well as other birth defects and pregnancy complications. Optimal Prenatal contains B12 and folate in their bioavailable, methylated forms. Your body needs these active forms for proper methylation, which is essential for healthy fetal development.* Optimal Prenatal also contains vitamin D to support baby’s brain development and over 30 important nutrients for pregnancy health. Unlike some other over-the-counter formulas, Optimal Prenatal contains choline, which is required in higher amounts during pregnancy due to accelerated cell division.* It is recommended to start taking prenatal vitamins for several months before trying to conceive. Optimal Prenatal can be taken before and throughout your entire pregnancy to optimize preconception health and to support a healthy pregnancy. Continue Optimal Prenatal after birth to support breastfeeding and replenish nutrients lost from pregnancy. In fact, anyone seeking a nutrient-dense multivitamin can take Optimal Prenatal, including men looking to optimize their preconception health!* Optimal Prenatal has helped thousands of mothers to support healthy fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and postpartum recovery. Women love that they’re easy on the stomach, which is particularly important if you experience morning sickness!* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
