Seeking Health Kids Optimal Multivitamin
A comprehensive vitamin/ mineral supplement designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. This physician-formulated vitamin/mineral supplement contains 28 highly bioavailable essential nutrients in amounts and ratios designed to address nutritional imbalances commonly observed in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Abnormal gastrointestinal function, including chronic diarrhea and malabsorption, affects a significant percentage of individuals with ASD and contributes to nutritional deficiencies.
Kid's Optimal Multivitamin by Seeking Health promotes better health in children with:
Essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements to help optimize nutrient status: The amounts and ratios of the 28 nutrients in Kid's Optimal Multivitamin can help complement dietary intake and ensure that daily micronutrient needs are met. To help address the special needs of children with ASD, Kid's Optimal Multivitamin offers higher potencies for certain nutrients, enhanced antioxidant protection, broader trace element nutrition, and augmented B-vitamin support compared to most other children’s multivitamins.
Well-utilized nutrient forms: Nutrient “families” are used to provide a wider range of nutritional activity. For example, natural mixed carotenoids and vitamin E tocopherols are included to provide diverse antioxidant benefit. Concentrated citrus bioflavonoids are also added to help complement vitamin C activity. Biologically active forms of folate, B12, and B6: Children on the autism spectrum have been shown to have a variety of metabolic abnormalities that include impaired methylation and transsulfuration biochemistry. Significant amounts of the active forms of folate (5-methyltetrahydrofolate) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) are used as they are already fully “active” and ready for use by the body. Together these two vitamins can assist proper methylation and reduce the risk of toxic homocysteine build-up. The active coenzyme form of vitamin B6 (known as P-5-P), is also included to support transsulfuration pathways.
Bioavailable minerals and trace elements: Many common forms of minerals used in supplements are not efficiently absorbed. To address this concern, Kid's Optimal Multivitamin contains low molecular weight mineral compounds and other forms that are easily and comfortably digested.
Food elimination diets and a tendency among patients to be highly selective eaters further narrow dietary sources of essential nutrients. Kid's Optimal Multivitamin addresses these inadequacies by supplying balanced amounts of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements in forms that are typically well tolerated by patients with ASD. Active forms of folate, B12, and B6 are included along with naturally-sourced carotenes, vitamin E tocopherols, and vitamin D3 for optimal nutrient absorption and utilization. Iron and copper, often contraindicated in ASD, are excluded.
Kid's Optimal Multivitamin is free of common allergens, including dairy, wheat, corn, eggs, yeast, and gluten. No sugar, maltodextrin, stearates, artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, salicylates, or preservatives are used. This formula complies with Gluten-Free/Casein-Free (GFCF) and Specific Carbohydrate Diets (SCD™). For maximum tolerance and versatility as a foundational nutritional program, herbal ingredients are avoided. This supplement in encased in two-piece capsules made from purified cellulose, so Kid's Optimal Multivitamin is suitable for vegetarians.

About Seeking Health, the company
Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
- • Without water, we die.
- • Without food, we die.
- • Without probiotics, we get digestive disorders.
- • Without multivitamins, we become depressed, fatigued and sick.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health
Seeking Health believes that the root cause for many health conditions and supplements stem from ineffective digestion, environmental exposures, poor diet, and lack of a healthy social outlet and inlet.
- • Once digestion is restored and optimized with the best probiotics, digestive enzymes, stomach acid and intestinal repair nutrients, one is able to absorb nutrients from foods and high quality multivitamins.
- • Once environmental exposures are reduced, one is able to reduce toxic burden which then frees up nutrients to work in promoting health and preventing disease.
- • Once diet is optimized, nutrients flood in, energy increases, blood sugar stabilizes and the immune system balances.
- • Creating a social outlet and inlet allows the parasympathetic nervous system to regain control over the reactive sympathetic nervous system, allowing countless nutrients to be used proactively and in a protective manner instead of being wasted on producing stress hormones.
