Maintain your tear quality by making lifestyle and nutritional adjustments, such as avoiding excessive exposure to cigarette smoke and consuming large quantities of caffeine or alcohol. Avoiding triggers will ease your Dry Eye discomfort while improving your productivity.
According to Robert Latkany, M.D., “There is a direct link between increased Omega-3 Fatty Acid consumption and a lower incidence of Dry Eye-the latest research is hard to ignore.”
Omega-3s are essential Fatty Acids. “Essential” means that, because the body cannot produce them, their inclusion in the diet is vital for good health. The two best sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids are dark, oily, cold-water fish, and Flaxseed. They deliver a multitude of health benefits, yet, as a population, Americans are Omega-3 deficient. An estimated 83% of Americans do not receive enough Omega-3s in their diet. North Americans have among the lowest dietary intake of Omega-3s in the world.
Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids include management of the following Diseases:
- Dry Eye
- Allergies and Asthma
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Cancer (Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer and Prostate Cancer)
- Tumor Growth Inhibition
- Crohn’s and Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Diet, Weight Control, and Obesity
- Adult and Child Attention Deficit Disorder
- Cholesterol Reduction
- Bipolar Disorder
- Arteriosclerotic Diseases
Dry-Vites contain Salmon Oil and Flaxseed Oil; these oils decrease inflammation, stimulate tear production and provide a higher quality tear film by improving the oil layer of the tear film. Dry-Vites provide the Dry Eye Relief you have been searching for. After taking Dry-Vites for 4 – 8 weeks, you will notice less morning eye discomfort and relief that lasts all day long.
A study by the Women’s Health Study at Harvard, which included over 30,000 women showed a high intake of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, decreased their risk of developing Dry Eye.
