SmartyPants Adults Complete Frequently Asked Questions
What Makes SmartyPants Different From Other Vitamins?
SmartyPants started SmartyPants because they believe the very best vitamins are all in one: premium ingredients delivered in a delicious package at a fair price. And that's exactly what SmartyPants does.
SmartyPants use only the best and most well-researched nutrients, and they use the form that is easiest for your body to absorb whenever possible. All their vitamin supplements combine a full multivitamin, including over 100% of your daily vitamin D and B12, and omega 3 fish oil — all in one.
Best of all, all those nutrients come together to produce a delicious package that is so delicious, you'll never forget to take your vitamins again!
Finally, their formula actually saves you money — if you bought the same quality individual components separately, you would easily spend more than twice what they charge per bottle. This is why they created SmartyPants in the first place: to simplify health for everyone.
Why Do I Need to Take So Many Gummies? The Recommended Dose Seems High…
SmartyPants' gummies are packed with significant amounts of at least 13 essential nutrients and omega 3 fish oil. SmartyPants pride ourselves on their great taste, so they spread the nutrients and fish oil across multiple gummies so that they don't taste fishy or vitamin-y… because they figured nobody would take a fish-flavored gummy.
If that's too many gummies at once for you, don't worry! You can split up one serving throughout the day however you like!
Are SmartyPants Vegetarian?
Yes. Calling all herbivores! SmartyPants' new SmartyPants Organics gummies are vegetarian. Yay!
SmartyPants have five new certified-organic products including: Organics Toddler, Organics Kids Complete, Organics Prenatal, Organics Women's Complete, and Organics Men's Complete.
For their Organics gummies, they sourced their vegetarian omega-3 from organic flaxseed oil.
SmartyPants' other SmartyPants gummies are not vegetarian as they contain gelatin derived from pork and fish oil.
SmartyPants use gelatin derived from pork to microencapsulate their fish oil. Since all SmartyPants products are produced in GMP-Compliant, allergen-free facilities that do not accept any beef or fish proteins, they must use pork gelatin to micro-encapsulate their fish oil. SmartyPants include fish oil because it's a major source of omega 3 fatty acids, especially DHA and EPA which come from fatty fish and some types of sea algae.
SmartyPants understand that many people avoid consuming animal products for religious or dietary reasons, so they are hard at work creating a vegetarian and Kosher/Halal formula.
SmartyPants Seems Expensive Compared to Other Products. Why?
A cabinet full of uneaten or expired supplements helps no one, especially not you. They're probably unopened or, worse, expired, and the most expensive vitamins are the ones that are unused and end up in the trash.
That's why SmartyPants believes the best supplements combine all the premium nutrients you want in one convenient, hassle-free package. This saves you time, money, and peace of mind. All their vitamin supplements combine a full multivitamin, including over 100% of your daily vitamin D and B12, and omega 3 fish oil — all in one. So no more worrying about having to buy and take separate supplements. Life's already too complicated for that.
Best of all, they use only the best and most well-researched nutrients, and they use the form that is easiest for your body to absorb whenever possible. This include the biologically active form of vitamin D as D3, folate as methylfolate, and B12 as methylcobalamin. If you bought the same quality individual components separately, you would easily spend more than twice what they charge per bottle.
Simply put, SmartyPants does it all – premium ingredients delivered in a delicious package at a fair price.
Why Not Make a Sugar-Free Product?
Many sugar-free products use artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols like xylitol, polydextrose, sucralose, sorbitol, mannitol, isomalt, and hydrogenated starch hydrolysates. These artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols do not match the rigorous nutritional standards they require of the ingredients in their products.
Why Do You Use Sugar?
SmartyPants use organic cane sugar, along with other natural sweeteners, to create a gummies and chews so delicious, you and your kids will want to take your vitamins every day. Because the simple fact is that if vitamins don't taste good, people don't take them. Long story short – the most expensive vitamins are the ones that end up in the trash.
Not all sources of sugar are equal, however. Some sources, such as whole fruits, come with additional nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and fiber. With every source of sugar, you have to consider what you're getting along with that sugar. All SmartyPants vitamins deliver at least 13 essential nutrients and omega 3 fish oil, and some of their products come with additional goodies, such as prebiotic fiber in their Fiber formulas, CoQ10 in their Men's, Women's, and Masters formulas, and lutein and zeaxanthin in their Teen and Masters formulas.
At SmartyPants, they are always mindful of the amount of sugar in their products and are always looking for ways to lower the sugar content without affecting the taste or stability of their gummies. That being said, they will only include a new sweetener in their products if it presents a meaningful, evidenced-based nutritional advantage.
Here is a full list of SmartyPants-Approved sweeteners:
- Organic Cane Sugar
- Organic Tapioca Syrup
- Organic Rice Syrup
- Stevia Leaf Extract
- Inulin Syrup
- Lo Han Fruit Extract
What's the Difference Between Cyanocobalamin and Methylcobalamin? Which is the Better Form of B12?
When it comes to the premium nutrients in their vitamins, they insist on the best of the best. SmartyPants' vitamin B12 is a prime example of that promise.
Vitamin B12 comes in two commercially available forms: cyanocobalamin and methylcobalamin. Cyanocobalamin, which is B12 attached to a cyanide molecule, is the most common form used in dietary supplements. Methylcobalamin, the form they use in all their vitamin products, is the active form of vitamin B12 that is attached a methyl group.
Which is better? SmartyPants'll let you decide for yourself.
Why Don't SmartyPants Contain Iron?
Iron is an essential nutrient for good health, especially for the health of their red blood cells. That being said, according to the FDA, accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Since their gummies and chews are so delicious and easy to take, they didn't feel it would be responsible to make a product that could be harmful if eaten in large doses. SmartyPants made this product with their own children in mind, so you can be sure they take safety very seriously and thought long and hard about every nutrient they include in their products. SmartyPants think iron is best taken as a separate supplement, so they suggest you speak with your healthcare provider to determine the right amount of iron supplementation for you.
How Can I Be Sure Your Labels Are Accurate?
At SmartyPants, they always want to go above and beyond. SmartyPants test each and every batch of finished product at a third-party lab to make sure that what you read on their labels is what you get in their bottles.
In other words, each batch of finished product undergoes a full panel test to assure that the blend meets all label claims. Furthermore, each batch is tested using verified methods (AOAC, USP, etc.) for the presence of pesticides, residual solvents, microbial contaminants, heavy metals, and gluten.
The test results (their Certificate of Compliance) for each and every batch of finished product is then posted to their website for all to see!
Do SmartyPants Really Need a Multivitamin?
Think of a supplement as an insurance policy for the days when your diet is less than perfect. They help fill in those nutritional gaps that processed foods and their own hectic lives create. SmartyPants always recommend checking with your health care provider before you or your child take any supplement to determine if they are right for you. SmartyPants encourage you to print their label to share with your health care provider and see how they measure up against other supplements on the market.
Is SmartyPants Safe for People with Allergies? What Do You Mean by Allergen-Free?
All SmartyPants products are allergen-free. That means they're free of the top 8 major allergens – milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nut allergens, fish allergens, shellfish, soy, and wheat. SmartyPants're also non-GMO and gluten-free, and do not use any synthetic colors, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners. Yay!
That being said, if you have a known allergy and would like to check if any of their product contains a certain ingredients, please email them at [email protected] so they can assist you. As always, please consult your health care provider before using any of their products to determine if they are right for you.
For more information on food allergens, please check out the FDA's food allergen labeling here.
How Can I Be Sure SmartyPants Are Safe?
SmartyPants create each and every product with their own children in mind, so rest assured that the safety of their products is their number one priority. SmartyPants only use FDA GRAS ingredients and the fish oil in SmartyPants supplements is one of the most trusted sources of omega 3 fish oil available, undergoing numerous quality checks to make sure it's safe, pure, and of the highest possible quality. Since iron is the leading cause of supplemental overdose, they didn't include it in their gummy formulas. SmartyPants test each and every batch of finished product at a third-party lab. There, each batch of finished product undergoes a full panel test to assure that the blend meets all label claims. That way, you can be sure that what you read on their labels is what you get in their bottles. From start to finish, their internal Quality Assurance team is working hard to make sure that all their products meet and (hopefully) exceed the rigorous standards that they promise their customers.
Furthermore, SmartyPants is unique in the industry for focusing on the nutrients that are the toughest to obtain from their diets alone and filling dietary gaps. SmartyPants always recommend you get nutrients from food first, so they formulate their products to complement the average American diet, not replace it. That means that they include safe amounts of vitamins and minerals in their products. After all, they believe it's important to focus on how all of the available scientific research provides a story to shape the recommendations for how much of each nutrient they should eat daily. Every year, they revise their formulas to make sure they are in line with the best science for the people they serve.
SmartyPants care about each and every ingredient that goes into SmartyPants.
Can My 2-Year Old (Or Younger) Take SmartyPants?
Due to a potential choking hazard that exists until age 3, they recommend consulting a pediatrician or medical professional before giving any SmartyPants products to a child under 3. No matter what, please make sure the gummies are chewed thoroughly.
Where Does Your Gelatin Come From?
SmartyPants' gelatin is derived from pork. SmartyPants' all-in-one gummy vitamins include a full multivitamin, vitamin D3, and omega 3 fish oil to save you time and money. The inclusion of fish oil, however, in their products necessitates that they encapsulate their fish oil in a small amount of pork gelatin.
Since all SmartyPants products are produced in GMP-Compliant facilities that do not accept any beef or fish proteins, they must use pork gelatin to micro-encapsulate their fish oil. Unlike many of their competitors who use a gelatin base for their gummy products, SmartyPants is unique in the industry for using a citrus peel pectin base in their gummies, giving them a delicious velvety texture that is melt-in-your-mouth good.
That being said, they at SmartyPants are always striving to improve, so they are continually investigating new ingredients, sources, and manufacturing methods and practices to better serve their customers. SmartyPants truly appreciate hearing from you so that they can revise their formulas to meet your needs. At this time, they are working hard to create a vegetarian and Kosher/Halal formula.

SmartyPants' Core Values
You should know. You have a right to know what it is you are feeding yourself and those you care about most.
SmartyPants have an obligation. SmartyPants have a legal and moral responsibility to tell you exactly what their products contain, and to do their utmost to ensure that their products contain exactly what they tell you they do.
That is the front line of transparency for them as a company. SmartyPants get it that a lot of companies are talking about transparency at the moment, and that's a good thing. They should. People should demand that of the brands they give their trust to. In that spirit, they are going to do their best to furnish you with all the information they can, in a way that doesn't require a PhD, about their process and their product. At the same time they are safeguarding, through careful attention and testing, that what goes out in the bottle is what they say it is, and that it is safe, pure and healthy.
SmartyPants want you to hear what's in their products, see where they come from, know why they put them there, and understand why they leave certain things out. Because they want you to question. SmartyPants want you to know. And they believe that when you understand why they've made the choices that they have, they'll have earned your trust.
"Excellence means when a man or woman asks of himself more than others do."
Though the term is defined many other ways, this is the form of excellence that they at SmartyPants aspire to. A quality that does not seek to denigrate their peers but instead pushes them to be better by demanding something better of ourselves.
SmartyPants do not want a world where they are in the minority; making eco-friendly, sustainable products, providing nutrient grants to those in need, choosing only the best ingredients for their customers. SmartyPants make these choices because they believe they should be the norm, and they hope by setting that expectation for ourselves others might follow. SmartyPants hope that by maintaining such standards, others will see that it can be done.
SmartyPants' conflict, you see, is not with their competitors – it is with the status quo. For them, excellence is not about who reaches the top first and holds it longest – it's about who blazes the trail and makes it possible for the rest of them to find their way. This is the excellence they admire in others and the excellence they expect of ourselves.
In the popular imagination, "transformation" as a concept seems to have become limited to personal transformation – a change from poor to wealthy, from miserable to happy. And while there is nothing necessarily wrong with these goals, they are not the types of transformation that SmartyPants is most concerned with.
SmartyPants value the transformation of a person becoming less preoccupied with themselves and more interested in those around them. This is not to say that they believe people are generally selfish or that they should neglect themselves in favor of others. SmartyPants believe the opposite – that when people are in poor health, their natural impulse to care for others becomes impaired. Pain – whether it's chronic or fleeting, searing or dull, mild or wild – is infinitely distracting. The only way out is to tend to their own health so that they can then give quality attention to others.
SmartyPants' mission at SmartyPants is to make it a heck of a lot easier for you to do both. Here's how.
For every bottle of SmartyPants sold, they make a 1-for-1 nutrient grant to Vitamin Angels. With one act, you give yourself key nutrients helpful in reaching optimum health, and give the same to someone else. You get and you give. Each bottle is a little act of transformation – helping transform not only yourself into a healthy, happy person, but also into someone who can extend that same gift to countless others.
