Patented formula Hypo-allergenic Physician formulated
NourishLife speak is the only omega-3/vitamin E speech development formula that provides the precise serving and ratio of the important nutrients needed for normal and healthy speech and coordination.
Ingredients: NourishLife speak contains a patented blend of concentrated and purified omega-3s from fish oil (EPA and DHA), natural vitamin E (d-alpha and d-gamma tocopherols), Vitamin K (K1 and K2), Vitamin D3 and natural orange flavor in 1200 mg soft gelatin capsules.
NourishLife Speak Serving Information / Questions:
1. How should I begin supplementing with NourishLife speak?
If your child is not currently taking omega-3 fish oil or vitamin E supplements:
Start with 1 capsule of NourishLife speak daily. After 2 weeks increase the serving to 2 capsules daily until reaching a serving of 4 capsules per day over 8 weeks. If you believe that your child will benefit from additional supplementation beyond 4 capsules, regardless of previous omega-3 supplementation, check with your healthcare practitioner.
Suggested serving plan for those not current taking fish oil or vitamin E supplements:
|WEEK 1||WEEK 2||WEEK 3||WEEK 4||WEEK 5||WEEK 6||WEEK 7||WEEK 8|
|# of speak Twist off capsules||1||1||2||2||3||3||4||4|
If your child is already taking individual fish oil and vitamin E supplements:
- First determine the current serving amount of the active 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 NourishLife speak provide added benefits and nutrient balance, not found in other omega-3 supplements.

|Vitamin E (Alpha)||-||-||500 IU|
|Vitamin E (Gamma)||-||-||200 mg|
|Vitamin K1||-||-||1 MG|
|Vitamin K2||-||-||150 g|
Once you have determined the amount you currently giving, select a comparable amount of NourishLife speak and begin with that serving (be sure to discontinue the other omega 3 supplements). Many families begin with 2 capsules of NourishLife speak twist off daily. After two weeks, increase intake to 3 capsules daily. And after another 2 weeks, increase intake to 4 capsules daily. Most families report success with a transition period, that is, replacing omega-3 in the current supplement with NourishLife speak over time.
2. What is the correct serving of NourishLife speak for my childs height, weight, and age?
Every child is different and you will know the best amount 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. Toddlers and smaller children may see the most benefit with 2 or 4 capsules per day, while older and larger children and adults may do best with 6 caps a day, divided throughout the day.
We suggest working with your healthcare practitioner if you choose to use increased amounts. A guideline is that if you dont see additional benefit with additional capsules, then stay with the lower serving.
3. How often and at what times should speak be taken?
It is preferable to provide NourishLife speak throughout the day during a childs most active time in the morning and afternoon, not at night. 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 childs doctor. If you are not able to provide supplements throughout the day, give half the serving in the morning and the balance with dinner (best not directly before bed as omega-3s may cause increased mental activity).
4. How should I give NourishLife speak to my child?
Many parents open (twist off) 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. The product is in a larger capsule, thereby providing a complete serving in only 2 capsules. Remember, dont mix the product with hot foods.(Learn more serving suggestions here)
5. When should I begin to notice beneficial changes in my child?
Every child is different and responses vary. Occasionally, families report beneficial changes in their children within the first few days of supplementation. Others notice advances in speech and coordination after several weeks. A number of factors may influence a childs response, such as consistency and serving, co-existing conditions (GI issues, allergies), 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 NourishLife 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. Identifying and addressing underlying health issues may improve your childs success. (GI problems and/or allergies are quite common and should be investigated.)
6. Can older children benefit from speak?
Families have reported positive results in older children. It may take longer to see benefits in older children, depending on the childs health status and health history and underlying GI issues and/or allergies. Follow the suggested use and increase over time.
7. 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.
8. What are some possible side-effects associated with omega-3 and vitamin E supplementation? (The issues described are typically associated with all omega-3 and vitamin E supplements not unique to NourishLife speak.)
a) Some children may experience loose stools when they begin supplementation with oil-based capsules; this usually resolves quickly (great for constipated kids!)
b) Moodiness, irritability, and emotional outbursts are commonly reported in children during the first few days/weeks of omega-3 supplementation; however, this usually comes with increased babbling, imitation of sounds, and eventually words to sentences.
c) Although theoretical, 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.
d) 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.
e) Individuals on blood thinners such as Coumadin should not be using fish oil and vitamin E.

Shipping Issues, Delays, Lost Parcels etc.
At MandiMart we pride ourselves on our same-day dispatch and fast delivery. We are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve our delivery service and avoid delays for our customers.
It is your responsibility as the customer to ensure you have entered the correct shipping address. When you place an order, you will be sent a confirmation email confirming your order details. Your address and the product details are included in the order details; this is your opportunity to correct any possible mistakes with your order. If you become aware of errors with your order, please make us aware at the earliest possible time by sending an email to MandiMartLimited@gmail.com. We will endeavour to alter your order before it is dispatched. Unfortunately, if your order has already been packed and labelled at our warehouse, we cannot affect it in any way. We cannot be held responsible for any issues that arise due to the incorrect information you have provided.
While we try our absolute best to minimise any shipping errors, we are only human. In the event we have sent you the wrong product, we believe that we have caused enough inconvenience through our mistake, and as a result of this we will dispatch the correct product to you at the next available opportunity, irrespective of whether or not you have returned the incorrect product at that moment. However, we do ask that you return the incorrect product promptly, but at your leisure. Failure to return the incorrect products will incur an invoice and subsequently debt collection as required.
If you have not received your order after the expected delivery guideline has passed, please contact your local post/delivery office, and quote your tracking number to them. In 90+% of cases a ‘failed delivery attempt’ has been made but the postman didn’t leave a card to let you know this. If the parcel is indeed at the local delivery office you will be able to re-arrange delivery or collection of your parcel via an online portal on the carrier’s website, or by contacting the local delivery office directly.
Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee delivery or the time/date that our carrier will plan to make the delivery – this is out of our control. If you parcel is delayed or lost you can rest assured that we will do everything in our power to help you trace your lost parcel. This will include following up tracking numbers and contacting carriers for further clarification if the tracking information is not explicit. MandiMart cannot accept responsibility for delays or losses caused by carriers until the ‘claims waiting time’ has expired. Until this has happened the only message we will receive from carriers is to wait. After this time, we are more than happy to begin a complaint/claim against the carrier for the delay/loss of your parcel.
If you have entered a ‘SafePlace’ for your parcel to be left (i.e. when you are not present to accept the delivery) and the carrier states that they have left the parcel in the specified ‘SafePlace’, then MandiMart cannot be held responsible for any losses that you have experienced through using the ‘SafePlace’ service.
We understand that your supplement requirements are subject to change and, as such, you may occasionally need to return unused/no longer prescribed products. We offer a ‘no contest’ return policy if the product is in reasonable expiry date, in its original condition, unopened with the security seal still in place and the return is initiated within 90 days of the order being placed. If it has been longer than 90 days, send an email and we will decide this on a case-by-case basis.
We will process a refund once we have received the returned product, and inspected its condition. MandiMart accepts no responsibility for returns that are lost or damaged en route to our address. For this reason, we strongly recommend using a tracked/registered service and ensuring the products are adequately protected, as required.
MandiMart cannot accept opened, unsealed products for return in any situation other than a (possible) manufacturing defect. In this situation we require the product to be returned to us and then we will converse with our supplier/manufacturer as to whether a manufacturing defect is present in the product. This could include returning the product to our supplier/manufacturer. If a manufacturing defect is present then you will be issued a new product replacement or a refund, whichever you should prefer. Please note that the return shipping is to be paid by customer and only on discovery of a manufacturing defect will this be refunded. If there is no manufacturing defect present you will not be refunded nor will a replacement be sent to you.
While we continually strive for perfection, we are only human and mistakes will happen from time to time. If we have mistakenly sent you the wrong product, we are more than happy to cover the cost of returning this wrong product to us. We believe that you have been inconvenienced enough through no fault of your own, and as such should not have to pay for the return, or wait until the initial product is returned before the correct product is dispatched. We will immediately dispatch the correct product for you, with no regard to whether we have received your product return. However, in the instance that you have ordered the wrong product or no longer require the product you have ordered, we would expect you to fund the return yourself.
