The Multivitamin ONE does not meet the ASMBS standard. Does anyone take this and have any problems?

What are you talking about? BariatricPal Multivitamin ONE absolutely meets or exceeds ASMBS guidelines.

10,000 what? 🙂

Multivitamin ONE has 12,727 IU!

You're confusing IU and mcg. We're following the new FDA labeling guidelines. All the other Vitamin companies will be following soon.

ASMBS requires 5,000-10,000 IU.

Conversion rates between mcg RAE and IU are as follows [7]:

  • 1 IU retinol = 0.3 mcg RAE
  • 1 IU beta-carotene from dietary supplements = 0.15 mcg RAE
  • 1 IU beta-carotene from food = 0.05 mcg RAE
  • 1 IU alpha-carotene or beta-cryptoxanthin = 0.025 mcg RAE

See https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminA-HealthProfessional/ for more info on conversions.

Multivitamin ONE has 12,727 IU. That's 333% of your DV for Vitamin A.

You can read the latest ASMBS guidelines at https://asmbs.org/app/uploads/2008/09/ASMBS-Nutritional-Guidelines-2016-Update.pdf .

The FDA is requiring that format in the near future.

I bought several months supply of ProCare before Bariatric Pal launched theirs. Going to compare them and possibly try One when I run out.

I was thinking of doing the same but I have three bottle of ProCare so it will be a while. I hope someone reviews the new chewable One they just came out with though. I am interested in that.....

Egh. Not me, I couldn't stand the chewables. If they don't have capsules then its no deal for me! To each their own I guess ;)
