Omega 3 fish oil is not just the proverbial snake oil. It does show important health benefits. I am a practicing ophthalmologist in Florida for over 30 years. This is first time I have been so impressed with the health benefits of a dietary supplement.
Humans do not have the enzymes needed to make DHA and EPA ( omega 3). Therefore these important nutrients are dependent on one's diet.
The benefits of Omega 3 were first noted in heart disease. Later on, Omega 3 ( DHA and EPA) were found to reduce the abnormal blood vessel growth found in age related macular degeneration and diabetic retinal eye disease. By reducing bad fatty acids ( trans fat and monosaturated fat) in the cell wall, there is benefit to the nervous and immune systems.
Omega 3 has also been shown to reduce inflammation therefore helping nervous system pain and especially the signs and symptoms of DRY EYE disease.
The newest exciting research involve Resolvins, derived from Omega 3. This may in the near future lead to new treatments for many eye conditions.
Fortifeye omega 3 and Maxivision omega 3 are pure forms of omega three with the impurities removed in processing. They seem to be easily tolerated even for delicate digestive systems. I believe the extra cost of a quality omega 3 is worth the money.
If one is on a blood thinner, it is best to confer with one's primary care doctor being that omega 3 does thin the blood somewhat as well.
Omega 3 and vitamin D may be the most important dietary supplements of this decade.
