Award-winning quality since 1965. Our story How we got our start Carlson began with a single vitamin E product in Founder Susan Carlsons small Chicago apartment. In the early 1980s, we helped launch the omega-3 market in North America. Carlson now offers more than 200 products designed with your familys unique nutritional needs in mind. What makes our product unique Every product is tested by an FDA-registered laboratory for potency and quality, and many items in our line have received special third-party certifications and awards. Carlson is well-known for our great tasting omega-3 fish oils and our convenient vitamin D3 liquid drops. Why we love what we do Carlson has been a women-founded and family-owned company since the beginning and still is today. Daughters Carilyn Anderson and Kirsten Carlson lead the company, and the innovations continue. Carlson is proud to offer the finest quality nutritional supplements, from our family to yours.
