As a sufferer of dry-eye you will know the frustration and discomfort that accompanies this condition and are probably on a number of supplements that have varying effect. Omega Eye is a re-engineered Omega 3 that improves absorption and in turn efficacy. It is vital for those who have evaporative dry eye from Meibomian gland disease.
Highly purified and concentrated Omega 3 oral supplement
An omega 3 eye supplement specifically developed to relieve the symptoms of dry eye and blepharitis from within. It is strange to think that something as simple as a single pill can improve the quality of a sufferers life so much. While we have heard about the importance of Omega 3 supplements, not all supplements are created equal.
While most of us have heard that Omega 3 fatty acids are good for us, do we know why?
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are essential nutrients, which we cannot make or store. Since their discovery in the 1970s, Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) have generated thousands of studies and clinical trials. Essential to life and good health, they protect against disease and can treat numerous health conditions.
The two Omega-3 EFAs critical for wellness and disease prevention in humans are EPA (eicosapentanoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanoic acid). The third Omega-3 EFA, ALA (alphalinolenic acid), found in flax, (flaxseed oil) nuts, seeds and dark leafy vegetables is poorly converted (<1-2%) to EPA and DHA and therefore does not significantly affect the Omega 3:6 balance in the way that EPA and DHA can. The best and richest sources of the Omega-3 EFAs are oily fish and fish oil supplements. They supply the preferred Omega-3 EPA and DHA that the body can most readily use.
The key benefits of Omega Eye –
- Offers a therapeutic dose of Omega 3 (2-3 of grams per day)
- The right form of Omega 3- RTG (re-esterified triglyceride)
- Better absorption
- Very high levels of EPA & DHA – the only essential fatty acids proven to have health benefits
- Contaminant Free-free of PCB’s, Toxins etc
Here is the science
Telling the difference between one Omega 3 product and another can be tricky, so we have listed below what sets Omega Eye apart from the rest and why it is better.
Not all Omega 3 preparations are the same. In the process of purifying and extracting fish oils, alcohol is used. This converts the Omega 3 natural product to an Ethyl ester which unfortunately is not absorbed by the human body. PRN a Nutraceutical company in the USA has developed a way to re-engineer the extracted Omega 3 by a process called “re-esterifiation” and this converts the ethyl ester form back to the natural triglyceride form. This is easily absorbed by the human body.
The dosage in Omega 3 is also much higher. So those of you suffering with Dry Eye and Meibomian Gland Disease (MGD) we may have a solution. Contact Centre for Sight for more information about Omega Eye on 0800 011 2882.
Some of you may have seen papers stating that Omega 3 can be linked to prostate cancer. We have collated some scientific responses to this proposition which clearly show the shortcumings of this statements and lack of solid evidence.
