With Kids’ Omega-3, Lutein and Vitamin D3, you can help your child’s brain, eye, and bone development. Our children’s formula is:
- Molecularly distilled
- IFOS tested and 5-star rated for quality
- IGEN certified for absence of genetic engineering
- Triglyceride Form
What Sets Us Apart?
We set out to create the purest, easiest-to-administer fish oil for children.
Freshness is key to fish oil and we’ve taken care of that for you: we have sourced a unique self-sealing bottle adapter that reduces the exposure to oxygen and keeps our fish oil fresh. The adapter also creates a child-proof closure, which prevents spillage should curious little hands tip the bottle over.
Because our syringes are never immersed in the fish oil, you eliminate the risk of cross-contamination that is present in most children’s fish oil products. And unlike the competition, our dosage lines are clearly visible on the syringe – no fading from immersion.
Our high-potency formula means one bottle provides an eight-week supply when dosing a 1-year-old infant daily at the recommended serving size. Compare that to a supply of less than two weeks using the leading competitor’s brand! It’s an economical – and tasty! – way to give the health benefits of Omega 3 to your child.
Quality You Can Feel Good About
Non-GMO: Tested for Absence of Genetic Engineering
femMED Fish Oil products use ingredients that are certified non-GMO by the International GMO Evaluation and Notification Program (IGEN™). IGEN™ is the first formal international certification program that tests finished products, and the ingredients to determine if genetic engineering is present in, or was used in the production of the product. Reports of every batch is available on demand by locating the lot number on the bottle and visiting www.igenprogram.com
International Fish Oil Standards
Fish oil is prone to oxidation because it is made up mainly of fats. When exposed to oxygen in the air, the fat molecules in the oil start to break down. This can lead to an unpleasant “fishy” smell as well as product rancidity and spoilage. Fish oil may become instable for many reasons including formulations with inappropriate anti-oxdidants or pro-oxidant ingredients, poor handling during the manufacturing process, and storage involving extreme humidity, light exposure and extreme temperatures.
femMED takes active steps to make sure our oil remains fresh and stable with a sufficient shelf-life. The only way to make sure the fish oil that makes its way from the ocean through to manufacturing, and finally into your bottle is to test the ingredients as well as the final fish oil product before it makes its way into your home. We verify that our fish oil will not become spoiled before its expiry date by testing it against the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS™) for peroxide, anisidine, and total oxidation. Intrinsic has also conducted stability experiments with the final formula which include up to 60 days’ stability once the bottle has been opened if stored correctly. Reports of every batch is available on demand by locating the lot number on the bottle and visiting www.ifosprogram.com
TAV Tested for Stability
Some natural flavors may interfere with conventional p-Anisidine value analysis. A new and validated testing methodology was developed to ascertain the True Anisidine Value (TAV) for these products. This new chromatographic method surpasses the conventional spectrometric method with better specificity, reproducibility and accuracy. These characteristics provide greater advantage for testing raw materials and finished products of marine and other nutritional oil. The test measures the rate of anisidine consumption. A result of 69% retention of spiked anisidine in the sample or higher demonstrates a stable oil. Our 3rd Party testing facility (IFOS) make use of this new testing methodology to ensure accurate test results on our fish oil products.
femMED is committed to consumer transparency. Our fish oil products have all been tested and verified by 3rd party labs and are readily available. Free downloadable reports can be obtained by taking the following steps:

FloraGLO® Lutein: Superior Ingredients You Can Trust
FloraGLO® lutein is one of the highest quality sources of lutein on the market. It’s superior because:
- Bioavailability – FloraGLO® has been clinically proven to protect eyes better than the leading competitor. In a randomized trial, FloraGLO® increased plasma levels of lutein 146% vs 7.1% for the competitor.
- It is the only lutein clinically proven safe for infant nutrition (FDA GRAS status) GRAS stands for Generally Regarded As Safe.
- FloraGLO® is the only lutein brand supported by a patent showing how lutein helps filter blue light to help protect our eyes.
Nearly every source of light, whether natural or artificial, emits harmful blue light. The growing prevalence of digital devices like computers, tablets and smartphones is exposing people to more blue light than ever before. In addition to blue light from digital devices, the use of light emitting diodes (LED) in indoor lighting is another growing source of blue light exposure. LED bulbs emit about 35% of their energy as blue light, compared to 3% in traditional incandescent bulbs. In North America alone, LED lighting represented a $4.8 billion market in 2012 and is expected to reach $42 billion by 2019. As the concern for blue light exposure grows, parents can stay ahead of the blue light trend by offering their children the eye protection they need.
