Thank you so much! What a breath of fresh air dealing with you is.  I am so happy that, for a change, I'm dealing with a company with a heart.. In our seven year journey, we never came across people who really want to help, and not just collect money.. People who care about my child, and our family..Thank you thank you!!

Thank you SO MUCH from all of us, and I will keep you updated with my son's progress.

Yanar, San Francisco


I just wanted to let you know how well my son is doing since he started speak! Thank you for what you are doing!

Cara, West Virginia


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. 

Colleen, MD


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. 

Warmest regards,



Dear lifetrients,
Thank you for making a superb product when you made speak. It is so nice as a mother of a special needs child to trust in a company to deliver such exceptional products. My son takes it every day and never complains. I know the importance of Omega’s and vitamin E, and I am thrilled with your product.

Thank you once again for all you do for our children.

Highest regards,
Kristin Selby Gonzalez

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.

Helen, Australia


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.

Jackie, Atlanta GA


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!

Lori, Baton Rouge, LA


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!

Katherine L., Oregon


My son tried smooth for the first time yesterday- he said, "Yum, it tastes like candy!"

Jennifer R.


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!

Matt in Bluffton, Ohio


Thank you so much for the bottle of speak smooth, Audrey LOVES it, we put it on our facebook and a photo.  Audrey made all of us take a tablespoon of speak, she said, This is delicious! Finally no chasing her around begging her to take her oil ( ask she calls it) I will be ordering more for sure!

Susan Rodriguez


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!

Renee, Philippines


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!

Linna, VA


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.

Laura B.


My son is happy to eat the chewable probiotic.  I offer him one in the morning and one at night before bed. I appreciate the added "teeth cleaning" component. We do see a difference in terms of his digestive system when he does and does not take your product. I also like the fact that he only needs to take 2 a day versus 6-9 tablets.


Paula B.

Mackenzie, New York"LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING WOW!!!"

“Let me begin by saying WOW!!! I can't wait to see what the next couple months hold for him and our family.  We are so grateful that our doctor recommended your product, and we've been telling everyone about it.” 

Mackenzie, New York


My eldest son had improved greatly through diet changes and supplements, but had lots of room for improvement.  I learned about speak at a conference in Atlanta. 

My son started taking speak the last week in July.   August was an interesting month.  When my son would have a meltdown, it was unlike past meltdowns,  they were more intense.  One time, he was so angry at me for sending him to a time out, I thought he was going to strike out.  Luckily, he went to his room without incident.  The intense meltdowns decreased in frequency as the month passed. 

September came and my son returned to school.  He was now in 4th Grade.  This is an important time for children as they are maturing and developing friendships that will take them into middle and high school.  This year was different.

Our son is by no means perfect.  We can tell that he still has more energy than his peers.  However, the changes we witnessed as a result of starting speak are remarkable and have had a very positive impact not only on our son but on our entire family.

Ellie, MA


In spring of 2010, I began a support group for caregivers, and through that group I met an extraordinary mom who, after hearing me describe Joey suggested I try speak.

Honestly, I was cautious. I have not had extensive experience with supplements, especially with the bad rap they get because of fraudulent companies offering, at worst poison and at best sugar water, instead of the advertised product. And I especially am leery about giving an unregulated product to a child. So this was truly a leap of faith for us based on my friend's testimonial and the professionalism of your company.

We tried speak the morning of February 15...Today I am raising his dose to 3 caps once a day.

Please share this story as you will (removing our last name of course).

Thanks so much for your time.

Becky, Portland


"I received samples at the AO Conference. We just went to 2 capsules after a week and we are thrilled. (Insert big grin here).

So very happy ~"

Heather M.


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!

Alexandra, Arizona


Isaac has only been on it for a few weeks but I notice the improvements already. I really like the ease of the oil coming out of the capsule. He doesn't mind the taste at all and takes it with no problems.

Angela M., Iowa


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


My twins have only been on it a week but the effects are already being seen.  I am so impressed with the progress. I want to thank you and lifetrients for this product. God bless you.


Tanya H., Mississippi

Rosario, United KingdomGREAT RESPONSE TO SPEAK

I am very happy to let you know that my son responded very well to speak. I am really impressed with the progress in only 1 week. Thank you.

Rosario, United Kingdom

Julie, TexasI DID IT!

"I wanted to write and tell you of the progress we have seen with my son, Jotham, since starting on speak. Jotham is 2 years and 8 months. Before we started speak we had him on fish oil but in a smaller amount. Jotham has now been taking speak for 2 full months.

I have to join Jotham in saying "alleluia" and thank you, for speak. We cannot thank you enough for this wonderful product." 

Julie, Texas


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!

Kathryn B., California

Beth, CaliforniaBEST GIFT EVER

"Trace was almost three when he began taking speak. We didn't experience any of the behavioral side effects at all. Alot of people say we're crazy and that a supplement cannot help, but my husband and I just smile at each other when people say we're nuts. We've seen the results first hand and know without a doubt that this product has helped our son. It's been the best gift we've ever received."


Beth, California


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!"

Roxana, Colorado

Mary Catherine, Costa RicaTHANK YOU!

I think Miles is doing fantastic – and as much as I wanted to think that speak wasn’t the reason – I’m beginning to think that it is.  I’m very pleased with the product. Thank you."

Mary Catherine, Costa Rica


speak is an amazing product. It’s what I have always hoped for. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to try it.

speak Formulation

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 proprietary 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, 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:

  • Mercury
  • PCBs
  • Heavy Metals
  • Lead
  • Arsenic
  • Pesticides
  • Gluten
  • Saturated fats
  • Trans-fats
  • Mold
  • 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.

About gamma-tocopherol:

  • 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?

Absolutely. Either call our customer service number at  800-471-0358 or email us at info@lifetrients.com to let us know you will be ordering for more than 1 child.

What are the possible side-effects of omega-3 and vitamin E supplementation?


How should I begin supplementing with lifetrients

If your child is not currently taking omega-3 fish oil or vitamin E supplements:  Start with 1 capsule of Lifetrients speak daily. After 2 weeks increase the serving to 1 capsule twice daily continuing to increase in 2 week increments until reaching a possible dosage of 3 capsules twice per day continuing at that dosage going forward.  If you believe that your child will benefit from additional supplementation beyond 4 capsules, check with your healthcare provider (e.g.: Medical Doctor, Registered Dietitian, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Naturopathic Doctor, Doctor of Osteopathy).

Suggested serving plan for those not currently taking fish oil
or vitamin E supplements:

NourishLife Dosage

If your child is already taking individual fish oil and vitamin E supplements:  First determine the current serving amount of the omega-3 (EPA and DHA) and vitamin E (if any) that your child is receiving with the existing supplement* (usually listed clearly on the “Supplement Facts” panel. Be sure to determine the amount per serving or per capsule). This will provide you a baseline from which to start for an equivalent serving. Some families administer both “High EFA” and “High EPA” supplements. Shown below is a chart illustrating the amounts of each ingredient and how 2 capsules of speak provide the essential equivalent to three capsules of the other supplements plus additional nutrients in lifetrients speak provide added benefits and nutrient balance, not found in other omega-3 supplements. *Feel free to contact lifetrients at 1-800-471-0358 if you have any questions.


  High EFA
2 caps
High EPA
1 cap
2 caps
EPA 270 425 725 mg
DHA 180 100 275 mg
GLA 66   60 mg
Vitamin E (Alpha)     500 IU
Vitamin E (Gamma)     200 mg
Vitamin K1     2 mg
Vitamin K2     300 mcg


Once you have determined the amount you are currently giving, select a comparable amount of speak and begin with that serving (be sure to discontinue the other omega 3 supplements). Many families begin with 2 capsules of speak daily. After two weeks, increase intake to 3 capsules daily. And after another 2 weeks, increase intake to 4 capsules daily up to a possible intake of 6 capsules daily.  Most families report success with a transition period, that is, replacing omega-3 in the current supplement with speak over time.


What is the correct serving of speak for my child’s height, weight, and age?

Typically toddlers and smaller children receive a serving of 2 to 4 capules per day, while older and larger children receive a serving of 4 to 6 capsules per day, divided throughout the day.  Every child is different, and the "best” amount may be determined by knowing and observing your child. If your child is not currently taking omega-3, begin supplementing with one capsule daily (with food or snack) and increase slowly. We suggest working with your healthcare practitioner if you choose to use increased amounts. A guideline is that if you don’t see additional benefit with additional capsules, then stay with the lower serving.


How often and at what times should speak be taken?

It is preferable to provide the speak supplement throughout the day during a child’s most active time – in the morning and afternoon. Start with the morning meal and divide the serving throughout the day. For example, 2 capsules with breakfast and 2 with an afternoon snack. If your child is in school, you may ask your school nurse to provide the supplements. Depending on your state, you may need a note from your child’s doctor. If you are not able to provide supplements throughout the day, give half the serving in the morning and the balance with dinner.


Speak CafeHow should I give the speak supplement to my child?

For the capsules, some children find it easy to swallow the capsule. Others bite the capsule (and swallow the gelatin shell or spit it out), many parents open (pierce) the capsules and mix the oil with non-heated foods (e.g. pudding, smoothie); others serve it on a spoon (with or without juice or fruit sauce) or squirt it directly into the mouth and follow with food. This works for the twist capsules as well.  Most children prefer to take Pure Oil and Smooth directly off a spoon. Remember, avoid mixing the product with hot foods.


When should I begin to notice beneficial changes in my child?

Every child is different and responses vary. Not all children experience benefits in the same ways or during the same time period.  A number of factors may influence a child’s response, such as consistency and serving, co-existing conditions, previous supplementation, transition time, and adherence to special diets.

The time of year can impact response as well due to summer allergies, winter cold and flu season, etc. It is recommended to give speak on a daily basis (consistency is key) for a minimum of a 4 month period to determine if your child benefits from the nutrients in speak.


What ages are children who take speak?

Children aged 2 and above may benefit from the nutrients in speak. Many families with older children have reported positive experiences with speak.  Follow the suggested use and increase over time.


My child seems more emotional, weepy, agitated. Is this normal?

Emotional outbursts and transient moods are common when children begin supplementing with omega-3 supplements. Each child is different. If your child has been ‘very compliant’, a change in this behavior may be considered normal. Parents have reported the “Tasmanian Devil” effect, where children become very active, oppositional but in time (2-3 weeks) rebalance.


What are some possible side-effects associated with omega-3 and vitamin E supplementation? (The issues described are typically associated with omega-3 supplementation – not unique to speak.)

  • Some children may experience loose stools when they begin supplementation with oil-based capsules; this usually resolves quickly.
  • Moodiness, irritability, and emotional outbursts are commonly reported in children during the first few days/weeks of omega-3 supplementation.
  • Experts believe it is best to be off fish oil 2 weeks before a surgery due to increased bleeding risk, given the platelet effects of omega-3.
  • Avoid using products such as ibuprofen (motrin, advil) or aspirin since they increase the risk of bleeding, so the combination (omega-3, vitamin E, and these medicines) could theoretically heighten the risk of bleeding. Acetaminophen (Tylenol®) may be an option under the direction of your healthcare provider.
  • Individuals on blood thinners such as Coumadin® should not be using fish oil and vitamin E.
