SmartyPants Frequently Asked Questions
What Makes SmartyPants Different From Other Vitamins?
They 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 uses 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 prides themselves on the 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! The new SmartyPants Organics gummies are vegetarian. Yay!
SmartyPants has 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.
Their other SmartyPants gummies are not vegetarian as they contain gelatin derived from pork and fish oil.
SmartyPants uses 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 includes 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 understands 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 Does SmartyPants Use Sugar?
SmartyPants uses 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 will let you decide for yourself.
Why Don't SmartyPants Vitamins 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 thinks 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 tests 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 You 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 recommends checking with your health care provider before you or your child take any supplement to determine if they are right for you. SmartyPants encourages 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 gummies 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.

How Can I Be Sure SmartyPants Are Safe?
SmartyPants creates 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 uses 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 tests 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 recommends 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 cares about each and every ingredient that goes into their gummies.
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 SmartyPants' Gelatin Come From?
SmartyPants' gelatin is derived from pork. Their 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, the people 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 appreciates 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.
