, April 07, 2015 ) Calgary, AB -- Nutriden, a privately held Nutraceuticals company, wants the community to know that a dietary supply of Omega 3 fatty acids
is essential for eye health. Eye health can benefit from nutritional changes, such as taking Omega 3 fatty acids
supplements if it's not already apart of one's diet. The American Optometric Association explains it this way: 'One Omega 3 fatty acid, Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is found in the highest concentration in the retina, suggesting it has an important functional role. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is used in DHA biosynthesis. Studies in pre-term and full-term infants have suggested that a dietary supply of omega-3 fatty acids may be essential for optimal visual development.'
Many new studies are beginning to show that omega-3s are useful in several eye diseases and conditions and taking them can help prevent many problems. DHA, a type of Omega 3 fatty acid, is used by the retina to regenerate the outer segment of photoreceptors to process light. Because rod cone retinal cells are supposed to be very rich in DHA, if one's body does not have enough of it is will substitute a lesser fatty acid and one's vision will not be optimal. Also, DHA is used by the retina to protect retinal pigment cells from damage and studies show that a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acid may reduce the risk of macular degeneration.
There are also studies that point to omega 3 fatty acids helping with diabetic eye disease and glaucoma problems. Tissue rich in omega-3 fatty acids reduces the stimulus that causes the retina to become low in oxygen which worsens the diabetic disease process. Because people with glaucoma tend to have low blood levels of DHA and EHA adding these acids can help modulate the microcirculation blood flow in the eye and the optic nerve. The benefits to those with these diseases is immeasurable.
Uveitis is inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye. It is an eye condition that causes redness, pain, light sensitivity and possible vision loss if not treated. Because, as it has been shown with many studies throughout the Nutriden ebook outlining the many health benefits of Omega 3 Fish Oil
and titled "Omega 3 Fish Oil - The Quickest and Easiest Way To A Lifetime Reward of Optimal Health", Omega 3 fatty acids help with inflammation, it is not surprising to know that EPA suppresses eye inflammation in some types of uveitis.
