Optimal Start by Seeking Health is a unique multivitamin free of copper, iron, calcium, B12 and folate with additional supportive adaptogenic herbs. Dr Lynch designed the Optimal Start multivitamin for those sensitive to methylated nutrients, certain minerals, and stress. This unique formulation contains a well-rounded blend of vitamins, minerals including trace elements, plus herbal extracts for stress support, immune system health and antioxidant support. A complex of active B vitamins are included to help support healthy energy metabolism, nervous system health, and normal metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Vitamin B12 and methyl-folate are excluded from this complex to provide a specialized formula for those who are not able to tolerate supplemental methylation support or who are just starting out on a methylation support protocol, or for those who wish to add these important B vitamins into their regimen at their own pace. The gentle, chelated minerals are provided in well-absorbed forms without iron, copper, iodine and calcium, which may require more precise dosage control for individuals with thyroid or adrenal concerns.*
Herbal extracts provide additional support for this multivitamin and mineral blend. Shilajit extract is included to optimize nutrient absorption. A unique blend of adaptogenic herbs, including ashwagandha and Siberian ginseng, may bolster the body's healthy response to stress while helping to support healthy adrenal glands. Fat-soluble vitamins A and E, a potent dose of vitamin C, and 50 mg of CoQ10 may help provide support for the body's antioxidant and immune defence systems.*
