Pregnancy has high nutritional demands. Optimal Prenatal is a comprehensive prenatal formula with amino acids, chelated minerals, and vitamins designed to meet the nutritional demands of pregnancy and preconception.
L-5-MTHF, the most biologically available form of folate, is included in Optimal Prenatal, which is essential to support healthy cognitive development. The formula 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 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 also contains two active coenzyme forms of vitamin B12: methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. These are known to support healthy fetal development, methylation and energy metabolism. Active forms of riboflavin and B6 complete the well-balanced vitamin B complex, plus additional biotin to support healthy growth and development. Biotin can also help to support skin, hair and nail health.
Vitamin A is included in two forms: beta-carotene and retinyl palmitate, and vitamin C and coenzyme Q10 provide antioxidant support, promoting healthy cells and immunity.
For optimal absorption, trace minerals are included in their chelated forms. Betaine HCL is also added to support healthy digestion and optimise absorption of nutrients.*
Optimal Prenatal does not include iron as some individuals do not process iron well or don’t require iron supplementation.
While Optimal Prenatal is specifically formulated to support healthy fetal development and prenatal nutrition, it may also be taken if a potent multivitamin is needed.*
