SUPPLEMENT FACTS (SHOW)
EyeRelief® EFA Complex 1,885 mg
Omega 3-6-9 Fatty Acids (Total) 865 mg
Deficiencies of omega-3 fatty acids in adults (particularly omega-3) can lead to impaired vision. Studies suggest that prolonged deficiencies may increase the risk of damage to the retina. EFAs also play a role in helping eye fluids (aqueous) drain, which helps regulate intraocular pressure. Results from several controlled clinical trials suggest that one fatty acid, gamma-linolenic or GLA may be efficacious for patients undergoing PRK, for those with Sjögren's, or those with general inflammatory dry eye. Medical research suggests that the GLA supplement produces a noticeable improvement in many patients with dry eye or blepharitis accompanied by evaporative dry eye.
Flax Seed Oil
Flax seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, particularly the beneficial type known as omega-3. These fatty acids work throughout the body to protect cell membranes. A recent study has found that flaxseed oil may be as effective as a commonly used dry eye medication (doxycycline) for the treatment of dry eye. A recent study indicated that flaxseed oil was as effective as doxycycline in preventing dry eye after LASIK. An added benefit is that flaxseed oil has fewer side effects than doxycycline, making it a good alternative.
Borage oil is extracted from the seeds of the borage plant, and its essential ingredient has been found to be gamma linolenic acid, commonly known as GLA, which is an essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are compounds required by the human body in order to function, but which cannot be synthesized by the body itself without external assistance. Therefore, we must obtain them through our diets. Borage oil in its purest form is comprised of around 24% gamma linolenic acid, which makes it about the richest source of this essential fatty acid known to man.
Tumeric Root PE 95% Curcumin 80 mg
Tumeric has been shown to exhibit antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antihepatotoxic effects. It increases the production of enzymes in the liver that metabolize toxins. This may also explain its anti-inflammatory effects. Many studies suggest that patients who take curcumin from the tumeric root combined with fish oil prior to and after refractive surgery may have better tear production and less dry eye complications.
Why is Doctor's Advantage triglyceride form of fish oil superior to the ethyl ester form?
Omega-3 fish oils are available to consumers in two forms: 1) Natural Triglyceride form; or 2) Ethyl Ester form.
- Studies have shown that the natural triglyceride form is much better absorbed compared to the ethyl ester form found in most fish oil supplements. Because essential fatty acids in triglyceride supplements are absorbed well during metabolism, overall levels of EPA and DHA in cosumers of triglyceride-based fish oils far surpass those in people who choose ethyl esters.
- All fish are in the natural triglyceride form. There are NO ethyl ester fish in nature.
- Triglyceride fish oils have been eaten safely and with great benefit for thousands of years, while ethyl esters have been in the human food chain for only approximately 20 years.
