SmartyPants Teen Guy Formula and Teen Girl Formula differ in two major ways – the amount of zinc and biotin in each product and the inclusion of vitamin K as K2 (MK7) in our Teen Girl Formula.

Our Teen Guy Formula and Teen Girl Formula contain different levels of zinc and biotin. See the chart below for a comparison.

Teen Guy Formula Teen Girl Formula


Zinc 11 mg (100% DV) 7.3 mg (67% DV)

Biotin 30 mcg (100% DV) 60 mcg (200% DV)


Our Teen Girl Formula also contains 24 mcg or 20% DV of vitamin K2 as premium MK7, the form of K2 that lasts the longest in the blood stream. Vitamin K2 is not included in our Teen Guy Formula.

Each SmartyPants formula is carefully customized to match the specific nutritional demands of our target demographic. We consider a wide range of conditions when crafting each product – including the age and sex of the intended user, the average intake of the nutrient in the Western diet, the latest recommended dietary allowances (RDAs), and the latest science and advice from leading nutritional experts, all with consideration to cost.

That being said, our Teen Formula products are similar in many ways – both contain FloraGLO Lutein and OPTISHARP Natural Zeaxanthin at the dose and ratio recommended by experts and backed by science and omega 3 fish oil as premium EPA and DHA fatty acids.

Additionally, both products include at least 18 essential nutrients, including vitamins A, C, D, and E, all 8 major B vitamins, and 6 essential minerals. Neither products contain iron, as they are the leading cause of supplemental overdose and we didn’t feel it would be responsible to include it in a product that tasted so good.
