Optimal Multivitamin by Seeking Health
Seeking Health’s Optimal Multivitamin Methyl One is a multivitamin that offers a wide variety of nutrients in easily absorbable or active forms. Unlike other Seeking Health multivitamins, this formula combines everyday essential vitamins, minerals, trace elements and other nutrients in a single capsule, so you have to take only one capsule once daily. The formula contains methylated B vitamins, including methylcobalamin and methylfolate, which do not need to be converted by the body first. In addition, this multivitamin contains folate in both the non-methylated form of folinic acid and the methylated form L-5-MTHF. This blend of folates plays well with amino acids and minerals such as copper, magnesium and iodine.
One Daily formula, for every day
Optimal Multivitamin by Seeking Health contains vitamins A, B6 and D, selenium and zinc to support immune functions; B-vitamins, iodine and manganese to promote energy metabolism; and vitamin D to support bones, teeth and muscles. In addition, B vitamins contribute to a clear mind and support the nervous system. The added substance lutein supports the condition of the eye*3 and possibly has an anti-oxidative action within the body*3. BioPQQ® is a vegetable antioxidant that falls under the polyphenols while SOD (Superoxide Dismutase) is an enzyme that occurs in all living cells and which, being an enzyme, brings about or accelerates certain bodily reactions. The minerals and trace elements in this multivitamin have forms known to be easily absorbed by the body, including as chelates and citrates. Also, the formula comprises vitamin B12 in two “coenzyme-forms" (methyl-cobalamin and adenosyl-cobalamin), also known as the active forms of vitamin B12.
Evolution of epigenetics
To this day there is debate about the extent to which we as humans are 'pre-programmed' or rather shaped by our environment. The relatively new science called epigenetics bridges these two extreme positions. It examines changes in gene expression which take place in the 'epigenome', without the DNA sequence changing. The difference between genetics and epigenetics can be thought of as the difference between writing and reading a book. Once a story is on paper, this information will be the same in all printed copies of the book. However, each individual reader has a different interpretation of the story, and experiences different thoughts or emotions. Likewise, our DNA is interpreted, as it were, and switched 'on' or 'off' by epigenomes. For example, the story of our DNA can take different twists, depending on the way in which the epigenomes influence the story. More and more researchers are convinced that epigenomes can in turn be influenced by diet and lifestyle. This is of course a very interesting field of research. The methylation processes that occur constantly in our bodies and what role they play in epigenetics, are currently particularly widely researched by epigeneticists.

The Methylation Process
The methylation process is one of the most important and most intriguing biochemical processes in our body. Currently a lot of research is being done with several studies pointing out that there is a probable link between the ability to methylate and health. The process of methylation takes place trillions of times every minute in all cells of our body and affects, among other systems, energy production, DNA regeneration, hormone production and repair work. Technically, methylation is a controlled transfer of a methyl group to primarily proteins, amino acids, enzymes and DNA. In addition, substances able to donate a methyl group are called methyl donors, including B vitamins, vitamin C, biotin, zinc, folic acid and betaine. Methyl groups facilitate the on-and-off switches of our DNA and thus play an important role in the gene expression of our DNA. This makes them one of the most researched molecules in epigenetics.
Epigenetics & Seeking Health
The term epigenetics was coined in 1942 by biologist Conrad Waddington in an attemot to interpret the phenomenon in which genes, under the influence of environmental factors, can be switched on and off. In epigenetic modifications, the function of a gene changes without changing its code, as when a piece of music is played by different musicians; the same notes are on the sheet, but they sound different. For example, two people who are genetically identical can still be very different epigenetically. This has been a guiding principle for Seeking Health’s Dr. Ben Lynch. By detecting the markers around the DNA that can turn genes on or off and influence them with the help of nutrition, supplements and lifestyle adjustments, Lynch argues that we can 'clean up our dirty genes', as it were, and can influence our gene expression.
About Seeking Health
Seeking Health was founded by Dr. Ben Lynch, who in 2018, after years of research, wrote the book Dirty Genes. Lynch received his doctorate in natural medicine from Bastyr University in Washington, DC, and helped thousands of clients, doctors and health professionals worldwide gain insights from epigenetics to optimize their health the holistic way. Lynch, currently the most consulted expert in epigenetics, is convinced that our genetic destiny is not fixed. Rather, through the right diet and lifestyle we can interact with our genes to realize our body’s full genetic potential.
