FAQS

b

What makes Smart Family Nutrition different from other dietary supplement brands?

Smart Family Nutrition was built by parents, for parents. As a team, we came together with the help of leading pediatricians to formulate products that kids love and moms trust. We are the gummy alternative. We are sugar free. And we aim to make the lives of parents easier through supplementation and nutrition.

b

What are the daily requirements of DHA? How does this compare to what is in Smart Family Nutrition products?

The optimal dose of omega-3 fatty acids for children ranges from 500-1,000mg/day and for adults can reach up to 1,300mg/day depending on age and disease state.

 

In just one ml of our Think Smart DHA drops it contains 500mg of omega-3 fatty acids and 400mg of pure DHA. And in one of our Think Smart DHA Soft Chews contains 600mg of omega-3 fatty acid and 282mg of DHA. These products were chosen and formulated due to the highest payload of DHA that we could incorporate in each dose.

 

DHA is the component of omega-3 fatty acids that can contribute to better cognitive function**.

b

What strands of probiotics do you use and why?

We use a 10 billion live culture combination of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus because it is proven that these two strains can aid synergistically in digestive health. Backed by the Sears family research our strains were hand selected for optimal efficacy.

 

Lactobacillus is also found in yogurt and other fermented foods, this is the most common probiotic. Lactobacillus has been found likely effective for treating and preventing diarrhea, including infectious types such as rotaviral diarrhea in children, and may help people with traveler’s diarrhea. Some research also supports the use of certain — but not all — strains of Lactobacillus to treat colic in babies, lung infections, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome caused by bacteria.

 

Bifidobacterium is found in some dairy products such as yogurt and cheese. Some research suggests Bifidobacterium may help ease constipation IBS, ulcerative colitis and lung infections.

b

Are all your products sugar-free? If so, how do they taste SO good?

Yes, ALL our products are sugar-free! To keep your kiddos wanting more we have flavored our products with natural flavorings like Lo Han Fruit, Bilberry extract and Orange/Berry. This keeps our products having bold (and sweet!) flavors without any added sugar.

b

Why does Smart Family Nutrition not do gummies?

Smart Family Nutrition wanted to stay away from gummies because gummies contain A LOT of sugar. We didn’t want sugar in our kiddos systems and we didn’t want it sticking to your enamel! Sugar in gummies can lead to tooth decay over time, and no parent wants that!

b

Is it okay if my child takes more than the dose on the box?

We get it, they are delicious! It is completely okay for your kiddos to indulge a little on our sugar free formula. We do recommend trying to stick to the daily dosage on the box, but there are no harmful side effects of taking a few extra! But remember if your child has a preexisting condition, always be sure to check with your children's physician before starting any supplement!

b

Smart Family Nutrition seems expensive, why?

We are priced at a premium price because we believe in our product. We know that we have created a brand to help families make taking vitamins easy. We have various delivery forms, some less expensive than others.

 We have hand selected suppliers, manufacturers, and ingredients to come up with the magical mix in our products- we don’t think you can put a price on transparency!

b

Are these products safe for the whole family?

Yes, all our products are safe and fun for the whole family! While we do recommend certain target ages, this should not stop you from giving you teenager the DHA drops if they love them!

·       Tummy Smart Soft Melts, See Smart Soft Melts, Think Smart Soft Gels, and the DHA Soft Chews are fun for the kiddos and the parents. As parents ourselves, we know our kiddos aren’t the biggest fans of swallowing pills, so we created a brand that offers many ways to enjoy the benefits of our products!

·       It is recommended that for children under the age of 2 use the Tummy Smart Sprinkle Packs and the Think Smart DHA drops because these delivery formats are made specifically for infancy.
