How do I use Thinkmist®?
Simply remove the clear cap from your Thinkmist® bottle and press down on the MicroMega Mister® to administer one spray. Thinkmist® is designed to be sprayed onto food, a drink, or directly into the mouth, on the inner cheek. Once the spray is dispensed, place the clear cap back on the MircoMega Mister® and refrigerate.
How should Thinkmist® be stored? How long is the bottle good for?
After each use, Thinkmist® should be kept refrigerated. The clear cap should be on when not in use, and always keep product out of reach of children. Thinkmist® 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 Thinkmist® should be used within 80 days.
What are the ingredients in Thinkmist®?
Parents are pleased to learn that in addition to purified DHA, Thinkmist® has only vitamin E, often referred to as mixed tocopherols, which acts as a natural antioxidant and natural lemon flavour. Thinkmist® contains no artificial preservatives, colouring or artificial flavouring and is free of corn, shellfish, sulfites, yeast, peanuts, wheat, gluten, eggs and dairy.
What is the source of DHA used in Thinkmist®?
DHA is naturally found in cold-water fatty fish, and that is exactly where Thinkmist® DHA comes from. Thinkmist® is made from whole-body fish oil, in its natural triglyceride form for optimal purity and potency. Thinkmist® DHA is derived from small wild-caught fish, including sardines, anchovy and mackerel. The Omega-3’s used in Thinkmist® are refined to a pharmaceutical-grade DHA.
What is the Vitamin E in your products for? What is it derived from?
Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) is used as a natural preservative to help manage the oxidation process of fish oils. This helps maintain freshness and purity of the fish oil. Our vitamin E is naturally sourced from soy beans.
