Converting IU to mg is very difficult. Mass equivalents are different for every vitamin, and this must be determined first. For example, vitamin A has the IU biological equivalent of 0.3 mcg retinol, or of 0.6 mcg beta-carotene.
I'm not sure the formula, but 2500 IU of Vitamin A = 750 micrograms
I believe an iu (international unit) is equivelant to a mg (milligram).
Ans: 0.3 mg = 1,200 i.u...... 1 mg = 40,000 iu
30.12 mgFom IU to mcg: 50000 IU/1.66 = 30120 mcgFrom mcg to mg: 30120 mcg/1000 = 30.12 mg Final AnswerFrom USDATo convert Vitamin A as beta-carotene:From IU to mcg: IU/1.66 = mcgFrom mcg to IU: mcg * 1.66 = IUSource http://dietarysupplementdatabase.usda.nih.gov/ingredient_calculator/help.php#q2Ther are 1000 mcg in a mg so to convert to miligrams you have to divide the micograms by 1000.
how can convert 100 mcg B12 in mg
To convert 300 mg to 2000 IU you need to first convert the milligrams to micrograms (1,000 mcg is equal to 1 mg). Next, you need to determine what one IU represents.
One IU = 2/3 mg of d-alpha-tocopherol (Vit E active), so 400 IU = (400IU)(2/3 mg/IU) = 266.67 mg
1 mcg vitamin D (cholecalciferol) = 40 IU Let´s say you have 300 IU of vitamin D: 300 / 40 = 7,5 mcg vit. D Then you would have to convert 7,5 mcg to mg: 7,5 / 1000 = 0,0075 mg vitamin D.
1 IU of Vitamin D equals 0.025 μg (microgram - one millionth of a gram). 50,000 × 0.025 = 1,250 μg So, 50,000 IU is about 1.25 mg.

How can I convert from international units (IU) to milligrams or micrograms?Generally speaking, you can't. IU's measure the potency of a drug, not its mass or weight.
Keep in mind that conversions from IU to mg are specific for each vitamin, so this formula/answer is only applicable for Vitamin D. You first have to convert the 2,000 IU into mcg. Each IU of Vitamin D is equal to 40 mcg, so you divide 2,000 by 40 which equals 50. Then you have to convert the mcg amount into mg which you do by dividing the mcg amount by 100. In this case 50 divided by 100, which equals 0.5, which means that 2,000 IU of Vitamin D is 0.5 mg
1.25 mg is the equivalent of 50,000 IU.
