PATENT-pending FORMULA HYPO-ALLERGENIC PHYSICIAN FORMULATED
Developed by a pediatrician, the Speak Smooth presentation is a liquid formulation and contains 7 nutrients in precise doses and ratios for children with special nutritional requirements. Each bottle has a 14.73 ml spoon providing the equivalent of two Speak capsules. Therefore, 30 spoons of Speak Smooth are the equivalent to sixty (60) Speak twist capsules.
Speak Smooth ingredients include: Oil Blend (fish oil (anchovy, mackerel and /or sardine), borage oil), water, xylitol, glycerine, gum Arabic, natural orange flavor, d-alpha, gamma and natural mixed tocopherols, citric acid, xanthan gum, guar gum, beta carotene (for color), sorbic acid, ascorbyl palmitate, phytonadione, menaquinone.
Speak Smooth should be stored in a cool, dry place away from the sunlight. When opened it should be stored in the refrigerator.
Directions for Use:
Take two to three twist capsules per day with water. The softgel twist off capsules allow the oil to be squirted directly into a child’s mouth or easily mixed with foods or liquids, or pure oil which can be poured directly from the bottle. Just twist the capsule and pour the liquid.
After two weeks, increase serving to 1 spoon (15 ml) daily. Continue to increase servings by ½ a spoon every 2 weeks until reaching a possible dosage of 3 spoons (45 ml) daily divided throughout the day (e.g. with meals). Speak Smooth is best taken with fat containing meal or snack.
If your child is already consuming omega-3 fish oil, see the detailed reference guide at www.speechnutrients.com to determine a baseline from which to start.
For those familiar with Speak capsules, ½ a spoon of Speak Smooth is approximately equal to one Speak capsule.
It is recommended to administer Speak Smooth on a daily basis for a minimum of a 4 month period to adequately determine potential benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the optimum supplementation level for my child?
Consuming 1 tablespoon, 2 to 3 times per day is suggested for maximum effectiveness. Toddlers and smaller children may see the most benefits with 1 to 2 tablespoons daily while older and larger children may see the most benefits with 2 to 3 tablespoons daily. Regular supplementation throughout the day is optimal.
How can I take Speak Smooth?
Speak Smooth may be taken on its own, or it can be blended with non-heated food (e.g. pudding yogurt) or liquids for consumption.
What are the potential side-effects of Speak Smooth?
The nutrient blend in Speak Smooth has an excellent safety profile. When beginning omega-3 supplementation, some individuals experience loose stools but this typically resolves quickly; moodiness, irritability, and emotional outbursts are also commonly reported during this time.
Which products should be avoided when taking Speak Smooth?
Avoid using products such as ibuprofen or aspirin since they increase the risk of bleeding. Acetaminophen may be an option under the direction of your healthcare provider. 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-e3. In case of accidental usage (e.g. sibling) avoid additional consumption. Should unusual symptoms occur, consult your practitioner.
