MY HEART PRACTICALLY SINGS
Late last spring Eliza & I had a brief consultation with someone who recommended we try speak.
I absolutely love what speak is doing for Eliza – my heart practically sings.
THANK YOU FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL PRODUCT!
I learned about speak from an online support group; I wrote to the parents in the group in late December. As a result of my cry for help, immediately a number of parents in the group recommended that I try speak. I immediately ordered the starter kit and have been using it since January 3rd 2013 with my son who is 3.5 years old as well as my other son who is 1.5 years old.
Thank you for such a wonderful product! I have already recommended it to the parents in the group facing similar issues and will continue to do so as we continue to see progress.
I AM THRILLED WITH YOUR PRODUCT
A HEARTFELT THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRODUCT
We started using speak a couple of months ago for our son, who turns 4 at the end of this month. We bought a starter pack, and started him on the capsules, and have now started him on the speak Smooth. Will has loved them both.
So, a heartfelt thank you for your product.
WE ARE HOPEFUL THAT THE PROGRESS WE ARE SEEING WILL CONTINUE
I recently started my 11 year old daughter on speak. I received samples at the ARI Conference in New Jersey and then placed an order, so she's she been taking it approximately 2 weeks. It's still early, but we are hopeful that the progress we are seeing will continue.

I HAVE BECOME A BELIEVER, THAT'S FOR SURE!
I recently started giving my 2 foster babies your speak Smooth. They are ages 3 and 1 1/2. We got them 7 months ago, and they were not in good health, had horrible diets, etc. I had them on a flavored fish oil, but was given samples of your product for them from my doctor. I have become a believer, that's for sure!

OUR FAMILY THANKS YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRODUCT!
Our son’s doctor recommended we try speak. Along with a special diet, therapy and supplementation, speak is a necessary component of our protocol for James. Our family thanks you so much for your product!

YUM, IT TASTES LIKE CANDY!
My son tried smooth for the first time yesterday- he said, "Yum, it tastes like candy!"
HE LOOKS FORWARD TO TAKING HIS SMOOTH!
Our bottle arrived this past Saturday. On his first try, he was a little hesitant to try something new. I told him to smell it, then take his finger and take a small taste. He is now reminding us at breakfast and supper (our normal times) to get the Smooth or “orange stuff” out. He looks forward to taking his Smooth! My side of this is, it is so simple and easy to give him the speak this way. Like tonight, busy running around with after school activities. He made sure we got the smooth out as we got home before bed. He really likes it!

AUDREY MADE ALL OF US TAKE A TABLESPOON OF SPEAK, SHE SAID, THIS IS DELICIOUS!
I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE WITH OTHER WELL-MEANING PARENTS ABOUT SPEAK
I would love to share with other well-meaning parents about speak. Rafa is 2 years old and 9 months. Since he started speak two weeks ago this has led me to research how omega 3 and vitamin e is really important for him and how we don't get this from our daily food intake. I never would have known about all this if you haven't introduced me to your product. I wish we could get this in the Philippines soon!
I SWEAR BY SPEAK FOR KIDS AND SHARE MY STORIES LIBERALLY!
At 3-1/2 years of age (September 2010), Florence began taking speak. Florence rapidly reached 4-capsules per day on the ramp-up schedule recommended on the package. Around the time Florence began taking speak (September 2010) I also began giving it to my 20-month old triplets.
All of the children remain on the full dose of daily speak. Once, Florence went without speak for 3-weeks. This frustrated her and prompted me to update my speak order to fully cover all 4 children at the maximum dose each and every month.
I swear by speak for kids and share my stories liberally!
THOSE VITAMINS ARE ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS FOR MY SON.
Those vitamins are essential nutrients for my son.
I know you must be busy with the year-end closing tasks, but I just wanted to tell you the company you work for truly does produce vitamins which help children in wonderful ways. It gave me the best Christmas present in the entire world.
WE DO SEE A DIFFERENCE IN HIS DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
"LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING WOW!!!"
POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON WHOLE FAMILY
THIS WAS TRULY A LEAP OF FAITH FOR US
LOUD LAUGHTER IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE
WE ARE TRUE BELIEVERS IN THE POWER OF THIS IMPORTANT VITAMIN
Since beginning the "speak" vitamin nearly 3 months ago, twice per daily, we have noticed significant progress. Our family has been exceptionally pleased since beginning "speak"; whether these improvements are due to maturation with assistance, my family is convinced of the properties of fish oils, especially combined with other natural ingredients to produce "speak", we are true believers in the power of this important vitamin and are now regular customers. Thank you so much for all you do in development for young children!
EASE AND CONVENIENCE
IT'S THE FORMULA WE NEED IN 2 CAPSULES INSTEAD OF 6
That formula has done wonders for her and the Vitamin E greatly helped. It's the formula we need in 2 capsules instead of 6.
Katie M., New Jersey
I AM SO IMPRESSED WITH THEIR PROGRESS.
GREAT RESPONSE TO SPEAK
I DID IT!
OUT FOR THE GREATER GOOD
I would recommend any parent to try it. Thanks to lifetrients for support and help with our financial situation. I do believe they are out for the greater good and not the all mighty dollar. We cannot thank you enough for this wonderful product.
Julie G., California
This has been a great supplement!

BEST GIFT EVER
I JUST CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT DAY
I'm so glad I found this website!
"Hi there, I just want to thank you for this wonderful product. I started giving my kid the speak capsules about 2 weeks ago. Thank you so much, I'm so glad I found this website!"
IT'S WHAT I'VE ALWAYS HOPED FOR
Developed from ground-breaking research
lifetrient's speak is the result of nine years of real life experiences from parents and their children who took action based on ground-breaking research on how essential fatty acids combined with vitamin E impact child development. After the exact formula was specified, the omega-3 experts at lifetrients partnered with the world's leading producers to find the purest forms of ingredients in their appropriate biochemical form for optimal absorption and utilization. The result is lifetrients speak.
Parents were looking for nutritional support for their children with special nutritional needs
Parents began supplementing their children with purified essential omega-3 fatty acids. These parents were able to exchange information via the internet, support each other, and share their successes. Their tenacious spirits and positive experiences illuminated useful information that contributed to further research.
A noted pediatrician became involved
Knowing the benefits of omega-3 fats, a noted pediatrician directed her investigative skills to go further. As a result of her work and discoveries, she developed the precise formula that led to the patent-pending formulation, now available as speak.
The speak formulation was exclusively licensed to NourishLife from Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland (CHRCO).
After the formulation was developed and pending patent, the experts at lifetrients researched and identified the purest ingredients in their appropriate forms for optimal absorption and utilization. Because this supplement was created for children, many with sensory and allergy issues, the ingredients had to be natural and guaranteed hypoallergenic.
Knowing that parents were struggling to find and combine the 7 different nutrients included in the speak formula, lifetrients simplified the process by combining all into one easy to use supplement. lifetrients speak is the only product of its kind.
Based on the latest science, data, and expert opinion, our new generation speak twists now contain the refined formulation which includes 800 IU of vitamin D3 per serving. Much research has been conducted regarding the importance of D3 and child development.
speak contains the highest quality oil available. The omega-3 contained in speak is sourced from wild caught, sustainable, exceptionally pure omega-3 concentrates. Utilizing the utmost care and precision in manufacturing and analyzing omega-3 concentrates, the omega-3 meets or exceeds all US and EU standards for purity, complies with California Prop 65, and meets and exceeds the GOED Monograph (Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3). This ensures that the speak formulation contains the purest grade oils with an ideal ratio of active EPA and DHA
speak does not contain:
- Heavy Metals
- Saturated fats
- Artificial flavors
- Artificial colors
- Artificial sweeteners
- Mystery "filler" ingredients
Ultra-purified and Concentrated
- We know the source: Our principal supplier can certify when and where the fish is caught. The approved fishery has been certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council since 2005 (and recertified in 2010). The processing plant is built specifically for fish oil production, and it is thoroughly sanitized and fully automated with a computerized control center.
- Time and temperature matter: High-grade fish oil cannot be heated above 180 degrees C because trans fats and impurities begin to form and the omega-3 fats can be altered. High-grade fish oil should not be exposed to heat for more than a few seconds. To maintain exceptional product integrity, we use a very low pressure vacuum and temperatures below 100 degrees for less than one second.
- Our product is highly concentrated: Our fish oil is moleculary distilled and refined to a high concentration of omega-3s, making our oil a potent source of these healthy, essential fats required for human health. Finally, natural antioxidants are added. Our fish oil is held in an oxygen-free environment during the entire process. Our fish oil is then packaged and sealed immediately, ensuring its freshness and potency. Our product is guaranteed to be top-quality, delivering all the benefits of omega-3 in an effective, convenient capsule, liquid, or emulsion.
What are Omega-3 Fatty Acids?
Omega-3 fats are unique and essential dietary fats. They are not made in the body and must be consumed through diet and supplements. EPA and DHA are the omega-3 fats found in fish and fish oil and are considered the most functional omega-3 fats. While some consider omega-3 fats to be a vitamin because they are required in the diet, they are not formally recognized as vitamins. Instead, they are called essential dietary fats.
EPA and DHA work individually and together to support neurological function and improve cellular activity. Both EPA and DHA work in cell membranes. Healthy cellular metabolism is central (i.e. critical) for normal functioning of all biological pathways. Specifically, EPA resides in cell membranes and supports healthy cellular metabolism. Without adequate EPA, inflammatory pathways are increased and this compromises normal cellular function. There is no dietary substitute for DHA. DHA is required for normal and healthy brain and nerve development and maintenance.
What is vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a family of fat-soluble vitamins that work in the body primarily as antioxidants. They are considered valuable and important vitamins for this reason. The richest food sources of vitamin E are nuts and oils.
While 8 forms of vitamin E exist in various amounts in foods (4 forms of tocopherols and 4 forms of tocotrienols), nearly all of the research in humans has focused on the d-alpha tocopherol form. It exists in the body in the greatest amount. More recently, we have learned about the importance of gamma-tocopherol and the importance of balance between these 2 forms of vitamin E.
About d-alpha tocopherol:
- It is transported and stored in blood and tissues and this is where it works as an antioxidant.
- As an antioxidant it protects body tissues (cells) from damage that occurs as a result of normal metabolism. Our bodies, as living organs, are constantly in a state of flux and d-alpha tocopherol is simply a part of the machinery designed to maintain health and normal regeneration of cells. Said another way, d-alpha tocopherol protects cells from oxidation.
- As an antioxidant, it works with other fats, such as fish oil, to prevent oxidation and thereby supports cellular health.
- It has minor roles in reducing inflammation and it also works to maintain healthy blood vessels.
- Supplementing with d-alpha tocopherol increases the need for gamma-tocopherol and supplementing with both improves the function of both.
- It is measured in International Units (IU) and is the form of vitamin E included in the Dietary Reference Intake.
- It is available in natural (d-alpha) or synthetic (d,l-alpha) forms.
- Like d-alpha tocopherol, it works as an antioxidant but gamma-tocopherol is structurally different from d-alpha and works in different pathways in the body.
- It has minor roles in reducing inflammation.
- Supplementing with d-alpha tocopherol increases the need for gamma-tocopherol and supplementing with both improves the function of both.
- It is measured in milligram (mg) units.
Why are both d-alpha and gamma-tocopherols in SpeechNutrients speak?
lifetrients speak has been carefully formulated to provide the optimal amount of both d-alpha and gamma tocopherols that are important for individuals with special nutritional needs. Although the reasons are unclear today, evidence indicates that these individuals appear to have an increased need for both of these antioxidants and at the same time, may not absorb them well. Remarkable benefit has been observed from adequate supplementation (right amount, balance and regular intake). Further, d-alpha and gamma tocopherols improve the actions of omega-3 fats, and protect them from oxidation as well. SpeechNutrients speak contains the natural forms of d-alpha and gamma tocopherol.
In summary: d-alpha and gamma work together as key antioxidants and work along with omega-3 fats to support neurological health and provide essential nutrition.
What is vitamin K?
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin with various functions in the body. In the past 10 years, we’ve learned that vitamin K has roles in maintaining heart and bone health, as well as being a critical component for normal and healthy blood clotting. There are 3 forms of vitamin K, but only K1 and K2 are consumed by humans as vitamins. Vitamin K1 is found in plants, and vitamin K2 is found in animal products. They both have unique and important functions.
Why is vitamin K in lifetrients speak?
Vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 are included in speak primarily to maintain nutrient balance. This is particularly important with long-term supplementation. It is important to support a proper balance between vitamins E and K. Because individuals supplementing with lifetrients speak may have an increased need for vitamin E, this in turn increases the need for vitamin K. lifetrients speak contains the natural forms of vitamins K1 and K2.
What is GLA?
GLA (gamma linolenic acid) is an omega-6 fatty acid derived from borage oil, and it works to support the EPA and DHA found in omega-3 fish oil. The original formulation found in speak capsules contains 60 mg/serving of GLA.
I'm interested in new speak® + vitamin D. How does this differ from the original formulation?
Vitamin D, known as the sunshine vitamin due to the fact that our skin cells can use sunlight to synthesize vitamin D, is an essential vitamin that may be lacking in some individuals due to their diet or their inaccessibility to sunlight especially in Northern winter climates. Much research has been published on the benefits of vitamin D and child development. The speak®+d formulation in the twist capsules, Pure Oil, and Smooth supplies 800 IU of vitamin D per serving offering a greater number of nutrients in a concentrated serving. Parents who are watchful of their children maintaining optimal levels of vitamin D due to geographical, personal, or seasonal reasons enjoy the additional supplementation and convenience of speak+d. †
Some basics On the Making of lifetrients speak:
Serving size: 2 capsules, 3 ml or 1 Tbsp Smooth, providing 7 concentrated and pure nutrients, for ease and convenience.
Flavor: Based on results from child tasting panels, orange was selected for the twist off caps and the emulsion Smooth, lemon was selected for Pure Oil, and the capsules are unflavored.
Amount of flavor: We avoided over-flavoring lifetrients speak so that it can be easily blended into foods, such as yogurts, pudding, etc. We wanted enough flavor to give a pleasant but mild taste.
Purity: We use the highest quality ingredients to keep lifetrients speak pure and hypo-allergenic.
Cost: lifetrients speak costs about 50% less than purchasing the ingredients individually.
Vitamin E: lifetrients speak contains increased vitamin E to provide important antioxidant support and protection for growing nerve and brain cells. Among other things, the vitamin E enables the essential omega-3 and 6 fats to work better. The low servings of vitamin E in typical fish oil products function only as an antioxidant in the capsule itself, and provide virtually no physiological benefits.
Questions from Parents
Why offer a Starter Kit?
Simple, we wanted to provide families more time and less cost. The two boxes in the Starter Kit will provide your child with about a 2 month supply of speak while you titrate up in dosage at approximately ½ the regular cost.
What will I receive in my Starter Kit?
The Starter Kit contains two bottles of speak, frequently asked questions and answers, a product and dosage fact card, daily logs to track your child’s progress, and a coupon good towards your next order.
Why do you limit families to one kit?
The Starter Kit is an excellent way for families to get started with speak at about a 50% savings. Once a family receives a Starter Kit, they are provided with all the information necessary to get started and will not need this information again. Also, due to the deeply discounted price, we are only able to provide 1 kit per family.
I have twins. Can I order a Starter Kit for each of them?
