Who Needs Kids Multivitamin
Are you concerned about your child’s nutrition intake?
Do you want to support their growth and brain development?*
Kids Multivitamin is a high-quality children’s vitamin and mineral supplement. It contains over 25 key ingredients designed for growing children.*
Kids Multivitamin was strategically formulated by epigenetics expert Dr. Ben Lynch. It is ideal for those entering their preteen and teen years, where growth and development are at their peak. Active nutrients support hormone processing, methylation, bone and muscle development, detoxification pathways, cognition, and more.*
Along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, this daily multivitamin can enhance nutritional status. The nutrient amounts and ratios are designed to help your child meet their daily micronutrient needs.*
This formula is free from copper and iron, which can be toxic in excess amounts. Their exclusion also supports individuals sensitive to these nutrients. Children with certain cognitive disorders or issues with iron metabolism may do best without copper and iron, which can be supplemented separately if need be.*
Kids Multivitamin contains biologically active forms of essential nutrients. These forms support optimal safety, absorption, and utilization in the body.*
- Folate (as methylfolate & folinic acid)
- B12 (as methylcobalamin & adenosylcobalamin)
- Vitamin B6 (as P-5-P)
- Vitamin A (as retinyl palmitate & beta-carotene)
- Vitamin D (as D3, cholecalciferol)
- Chelated minerals
Many common forms of minerals used in supplements are not easy for the body to absorb. Kids Multivitamin contains amino acid chelated minerals that are often quickly and comfortably digested.*
Compared to many other kids vitamins, Kids Multivitamin offers:*
- Nutrients in bioavailable forms
- Antioxidant support
- Higher potencies of key nutrients
- Immune support
- Broader trace element nutrition
- Active and methylated B vitamins
- Liver and detoxification support
- Support for MTHFR gene mutations
- Designed by epigenetics expert and naturopathic physician
Kids Multivitamin is gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free. It is free from common allergens, fillers, sweeteners, and GMO markers. Active forms of folate and B12 are used instead of synthetic folic acid and cyanocobalamin. This formula is also free from iron and copper to support sensitive individuals.*
Optimize your child’s health when they need it most with Kids Multivitamin!*
Why Kids Multivitamin Works
Kids Multivitamin is formulated by epigenetics expert Dr. Ben Lynch. Key ingredients support multiple biochemical pathways. Bioavailable forms of folate and B12 promote optimal methylation in your child’s growing body.*
During growth and development, methylation encourages cell division to grow new tissues. Methylation is needed for healthy growth, mood, heart function, brain function, and so much more. Bioactive folate and B12 are required for methylation to occur.*
Kids Multivitamin contains methylated B12, methylfolate (5-MTHF), and betaine anhydrous (TMG) to support the methylation pathway.*
It is estimated that over 50% of the population has a mutation in their MTHFR gene. The MTHFR gene converts and produces the active form of folate (5-MTHF) from whole foods. MTHFR mutations or lifestyle stress can slow down this gene, causing folate deficiency.*
Supplementing with the natural form of folate as 5-MTHF bypasses the MTHFR gene. This supports methylation by allowing folate to flow into the methylation pathway via the MTR enzyme.
Ironically, the synthetic form of folate (folic acid) can further slow the MTHFR gene. This can even lead to folate deficiency! You’ll never see folic acid in any of Seeking Health’s dietary supplements. Instead, we prioritize natural and bioavailable forms of folate. These include 5-MTHF (methylated) methyl-free and folinic acid (calcium folinate).*
Betaine anhydrous is also known as trimethylglycine or TMG. As the name implies, it contains glycine and three methyl groups. Betaine is added to this formula to support the passing of methyl groups to homocysteine. This aids homocysteine’s conversion back into the harmless amino acid methionine. This support is even more crucial for individuals with MTR, MTHFR, and CHDH gene mutations. Supporting homocysteine metabolism, in turn, supports healthy homocysteine levels and cardiovascular health.*
- Key features of Kids Multivitamin
- Growth & Development is supported with an ideal ratio of essential vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals. These synergistically support optimal development and function of the nervous system, brain, hormones, bones, muscles, and organs.
- Methylation support is provided by methylated folate (5-MTHF), methyl B12, and betaine (TMG or trimethylglycine). Vitamin B6 (as P-5-P) also supports healthy transsulfuration pathways.
- Antioxidants promote immune health, including high-potency vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, and zinc.
- Eye & Vision health support from chelated zinc and lutein, a yellow carotenoid from marigold flower. Supporting the eyes is particularly important with increased exposure to the irritating blue light emitted from screens.

As a dietary supplement, take 6 capsules daily or as directed by a healthcare provider. Many children do not need the full 6 capsules dose, especially if younger. If they are taking the full 6 capsules dose, consider taking the product in divided doses throughout the day, such as 3 capsules with breakfast and 3 with lunch. Avoid taking within 5 hours of bedtime as it may interfere with sleep.
Kids Multivitamin is intended for children up to ages 4 and up who need support for their rapid growth and development, although adults may take this formulation too. For children who cannot swallow capsules, they may pull the capsules apart and sprinkle contents on food or in juice.*
For children under 4 years of age, please talk to your qualified healthcare professional prior to considering the use of Kids Optimal Multivitamin for them, or have your health professional properly reduce the dose for a very young child.*
Kids Multivitamin is gluten-free.
Kids Multivitamin does not contain grains. However, this formula contains Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and ascorbyl palmitate which is derived from corn. Due to the processes used to manufacture the finished ingredients, the final product is free from corn proteins.
Testing verifies that Kids Multivitamin is free from GMO markers.
Kids Multivitamin is suitable for vegetarians. Vitamin D3 is derived from sheep’s wool, making Kids Multivitamin unsuitable for some vegans. This vitamin D3, however, is derived from wool that is sheared from live healthy sheep, so no animals are harmed in the process.
The suggested use of Kids Multivitamin is 6 capsules daily as children’s daily requirements for vitamins and minerals varies and the large serving size allows for greater dose adjustability in considering a young child versus an older teen. In addition, Kids Multivitamin does not compromise nutrition in hopes for a smaller serving size: Some nutrients, such as magnesium and vitamin C are required in higher weights than other nutrients, and so they take up the most physical volume. Seeking Health does not lower these amounts for serving size, and instead allows for children to adjust the dose if necessary.
This product is in capsule form to limit any added sweeteners, fillers, and flavorings that are normally found in gummies, chewables, and powders for those children who may be sensitive to these additives. In addition, it’s extremely difficult from a technical standpoint to get enough nutrients inside a gummy because the fillers (such as the gelatin in gummies) take up most of the nutritional “real estate”. You may open the capsules and sprinkle on food or in juice/water if your child cannot swallow capsules.
Consult with your healthcare practitioner prior to starting Kids Multivitamin or any dietary supplement, to ensure it’s appropriate for your needs and dosed accordingly. Your qualified practitioner should be able to determine whether the product is safe and appropriate for a child to take, and should also be able to advise as to whether adjustments need to be made in the dosage.*
Iron and copper are excluded from this formula because they are often contraindicated in Autism Spectrum Disorders and are potentially toxic in excess amounts. These minerals have been omitted in order to make the Kids Multivitamin accessible to a broader consumer base. Those who wish to supplement with these minerals still have the flexibility of adding on a separate iron or copper supplement.*
Side effects of this formula are rare, but may include:
- Flushed skin
- Mild rash
- Itchy skin
- Feeling warm
- Leg cramps
- Muscle pain
- Upset stomach
- Mild dizziness
These side-effects are more likely if the recommended dosage is exceeded, if you are taking too high of a dose when first starting out, or if taken on an empty stomach. Always take Kids Multivitamin with food and in divided doses throughout the day. Dr. Ben Lynch recommends starting with a small dose and only working your way up if needed.
If you believe that you are experiencing any adverse reactions, please see your healthcare professional immediately and discontinue use. Each individual may react differently to any product or supplement. We always recommend that you consult with your healthcare professional prior to considering the use of Kids Multivitamin or any supplement.
