The Carlson Difference

Since 1965, Carlson Labs has produced fresh, pure, award-winning vitamins, minerals, fish oils, and other nutritional supplements. The company launched at the forefront of the industry, offering the most complete line of natural-sourced vitamin E products in the world. Carlson then paved the way for bringing fish oil and cod liver oil to the U.S. market. In 2009, the company launched calamari marine oil, and today, Carlson is proud to bring you a product line of more than 200 innovative formulas designed with your family’s unique nutritional needs in mind.


In 1965, Founders John and Susan Carlson opened Carlson Laboratories, which quickly grew to offer the most complete line of natural-source vitamin E products in the world.


Every Carlson product starts with quality raw materials, and is tested throughout the entire production process.


For decades, Carlson has fully disclosed all ingredients on its product labels because the company believes everyone has the right to know what’s in their supplements.


In 1980, the company introduced its Carlson for Kids product line, which continues to grow to meet the health needs of the entire family.


In 1982, John and Susan began importing Norwegian cod liver oil and fish oil, pioneering the fish oil market in the United States.


Carlson uses recyclable packaging and energy-efficient equipment and facilities to produce its products, which helps ensure a healthy environment for our children and for future generations.


In 2010, the next generation of the Carlson family, daughters Carilyn and Kirsten, took leadership roles in the company, continuing the company’s mission to provide Carlson customers with the highest quality nutritional supplements.
