We get bombarded with a lot of information about vitamins and nutriceutical supplements. With the prevalence of increased indoor time, screen time and preserved food consumption, we are all lacking in our diets. When it comes to the eyes, the imbalance of Omega 3/ Omega 6 in our diets can cause meibomian gland dysfunction, or inflammation related dry eye. The market is flooded with several options for Omega 3’s, but they are not all the same. Here are a few steps you can take to add the right Omega 3 essential fatty acids to your diet:
- Include nuts, and fresh green vegetables high in Omega 3’s such as green peas, turnips, beats.
- Cook your food in coconut, olive or avocado oil.
- Take a fish oil supplement
I recommend Physicians Recommended Nutriceuticals De for increased tear film stability. This improves the quality of your tear film, and reduced inflammation in your body. Now available in pill and liquid form (for those who hate swallowing big pills), these are formulated for adequate dosage and manufactured with care so you don’t lose the nutritional value of the supplement. Even better – no more fishy taste, instead enjoy this slightly lemony tasting pill based product in your smoothy or salads!
