Product Specific

How do I use ThinkmistTM?

Once the spray is dispensed, place the clear cap back on the MircoMega MisterTM and refrigerate.

How should ThinkmistTM be stored? How long is the bottle good for?

After each use, ThinkmistTM should be kept refrigerated. The clear cap should be on when not in use, and always keep product out of reach of children. ThinkmistTM is made with purified ingredients and vitamin E (mixed tocopherols), a natural antioxidant. The expiry date is printed on both the bottle and the box. Once in use, your bottle of ThinkmistTM should be used within 80 days.

What are the ingredients in ThinkmistTM?

Parents are pleased to learn that in addition to a purified DHA, ThinkmistTM has only vitamin E, often referred to as mixed tocopherols, which acts as a natural antioxidant and natural lemon essential oil, that helps give ThinkmistTM its uniquely near-neutral taste.

ThinkmistTM contains no artificial preservatives, coloring or artificial flavoring and is free of corn, shellfish, sulfites, yeast, peanuts, wheat, gluten, eggs and dairy.

What is the source of DHA used in ThinkmistTM?

DHA is naturally found in cold-water fatty fish, and that is exactly where ThinkmistTM DHA comes from. ThinkmistTM is made from a whole body fish oil, in its natural triglyceride form for optimal purity and potency.

ThinkmistTM DHA is derived from small wild-caught fish, including sardines, anchovy and mackerel. The omega-3s used in ThinkmistTM are refined to a pharmaceutical-grade DHA.

Why doesn't ThinkmistTM have any other vitamins in it, like vitamin D?

We hear some people ask why we don't add any other vitamins to our ThinkmistTM. The truth is, we have a few reasons in doing so. By only containing DHA, individuals have the ability to isolate their dosing concentrations based on their own personal needs. This also helps eliminate the need to worry about affecting the dosing of other nutrients.

DHA can be naturally found in mother's breastmilk, however the concentration of DHA is dependent on the mother's diet.
