Optimal Prenatal Powder Chocolate – 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 Chocolate with Plant-Based-Protein 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 by anyone looking for a high-quality multivitamin with supplemental protein.*
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 Chocolate with Plant-Based-Protein also contains 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. Red raspberry leaf has historically been used as a tonic for pregnant women to help support circulation, uterine comfort and digestion. 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.*
Optimal Prenatal includes only a small amount of iron, which is naturally occurring in the vegetarian protein blend, as some women do not process iron well or do not need iron supplementation. If iron supplementation is needed, consider Optimal Iron Plus Cofactors; for a gentle, well-absorbed chelated iron.*
For the same comprehensive prenatal nutrient support without the additional protein, consider our Optimal Prenatal Capsules.
Blend, shake or briskly mix one scoop of Optimal Prenatal Protein 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. Do not take within 5 hours of bedtime. Adding organic fruit, berries, leafy greens, healthy oils and chia seeds provides additional nutrition and taste.
