The introduction expands the leading wellness company’s current line of its Meology personalized nutrition program
PLEASANTON, Calif., Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — From Shaklee, whose founder invented the first multivitamin in the US, comes the newest innovation for mom and baby. Today the most clinically proven wellness company announced the introduction of Meology Prenatal, an extension of the core Meology line, specifically designed to support all three natal phases. Shaklee developed Meology Prenatal to address the nutritional needs women experience during the motherhood journey from pre-conception to postpartum. The customizable program combats the traditional large pill format of prenatal vitamins with new innovative form factors that make it easy for consumers to digest. Based on a woman’s current phase and individual needs, Meology Prenatal provides a nutritional value that supersedes other popular brands in a proprietary and convenient daily pack. Additionally, Shaklee is partnering with Vitamin Angels® for a buy one, give one program. Every purchase of Meology Prenatal helps provide life-changing nutritional support to pregnant women and children in need across all 50 states and around the world.
Shaklee’s Meology program, first introduced in September 2020, determines the precise nutrition an individual needs based on biology, lifestyle, and health goals in addition to DNA and blood test results you can manually input in a short assessment. The innovative program is powered by a sophisticated patent-pending algorithm and product recommendation engine that delivers nutrition recommendations which are precisely personalized to you. The success of Meology drove Shaklee to create Meology Kids in September 2021 to ensure the next generation receives the nutrients they need for developing bodies. Recognizing that personalized nutrition is vitally important during this time in a woman’s life, Shaklee utilized its clinically proven expertise in nutrition to create Meology Prenatal that targets the individual symptoms each woman experiences with carefully formulated with clean, effective, and proven ingredients that are safe for mom and baby.
“Up to 95% of women fail to get enough of key nutrients foundational for a healthy pregnancy.1 We created Meology Prenatal to help families obtain the foundational nutrition they need with personalized, science-backed vitamins that are delivered in a convenient way,” said Roger Barnett, Chairman and CEO, Shaklee Corporation. “In this special time of a woman’s life, we know that they require specific vitamins and nutrients to help prepare their bodies for conception, ensure the baby is healthy and growing, and address the changes they experience postpartum. Meology Prenatal is a science-backed solution that caters to these special needs experienced during each phase.”
Meology Prenatal was formulated by Shaklee’s team of scientists and doctors to deliver what mom and baby need at each natal phase. Each phase of the program meets daily value requirements as well as recommendations established by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
The Core Nutrition pack includes three key products delivered in novel, easy-to-take form factors that provide 23 essential vitamins and minerals, as well as 250 mg DHA and 225 mg of choline:

“Whether you are hoping to become pregnant, already pregnant, or nursing, it’s imperative to ensure you’re getting proper nutrients. For a myriad of reasons, it can be challenging to get everything you need from diet alone,” said Jamie McManus, MD, FAAFP, Chair of Medical Affairs at Shaklee. “Our goal while developing Meology Prenatal was to develop science-backed, great-tasting products supporting healthy moms and healthy babies using top-quality, proven ingredients with Shaklee’s extensive screening and testing that surpasses even the standards of the United States Pharmacopeia.”
