Arlington Heights, Illinois, February 2017—Carlson Laboratories has been around for 52 years. Founded in 1965, the company has been recognized as an innovator and leading educator in the field of high-quality nutritional supplements. Family-owned, their interest in things healthy began when they experienced the benefits of vitamin E. Founder Susan Carlson’s father suffered from debilitating chest pain, limiting his activities and forcing him to stop working. He was unable to find relief until he came across the extensive clinic work being done by Doctors Evan and Wilfrid Shute of Shute Medical Clinic.
After Susan’s father had been examined, the doctors recommended a specific form of vitamin E. In less than three weeks, the patient was back at work, looking noticeably better. Inspired, Susan went about creating her own line of high-quality, all natural vitamin E, and Carlson Labs was founded, with one product: Key-E 200 IU. The second, E-Gems 200 IU, was introduced two years later, with other strengths added shortly after.

Susan managed her company from a third-floor walk-up on North Winchester in Chicago, while working part-time as a pharmacist in a high-traffic pharmacy in the suburb of Wheeling. Soon after, Susan hired two employees, who helped her open a storefront on Damen Avenue in Chicago. Sales reps came next, and Carlson products began popping up around the greater Chicago area.

By 1970, and another move, to larger space on North Kedzie Avenue, Susan was working full time at her own business. Husband John, a water engineer for the City of Chicago, was named president of the new company. Six years later when more space was needed, the folks at Carlson built and moved into a brand-new facility on West University Drive in Arlington Heights.

We’re giving you historical background in preparation of introducing you to a new Carlson product, and to show the efficacy of the company. That new product: Carlson Elite DHA Gems—a highly concentrated dose (1,000 mg) of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in a single soft gel.

There’s nothing fishy about it, and most of us know DHA is an essential nutrient for achieving optimum health. The omega-3 DHA is primarily found in fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines. But most of us don’t receive enough DHA through diet alone—which is why a great supplement like this can be the perfect option. DHA promotes brain, vision, and cognitive health. It’s also an important prenatal supplement and breast milk component that supports healthy brain and vision development in growing children.

To ensure maximum freshness, Carlson Elite DHA Gems is closely managed from sea to store. We source the highest quality, deep, cold-water fish using traditional, sustainable methods and transport our fish to a highly regulated facility for processing and purification. It’s then delivered to us and tested by an FDA-registered laboratory for freshness, potency, and purity. Elite DHA Gems is a professional-strength product, providing 1,000 mg of DHA in a single soft gel.
