Fish oil component protects eyes from injury and disease

We have heard lots about the role of nutrition in eye-related conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Now, we have evidence of how docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) protects vision cells from certain injuries and diseases. The study, published in Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology, concludes that “DHA and the induction of docosanoid synthesis is necessary for preconditioning protection, and thus daily survival, of photoreceptor and RPE cells.” DHA is one of the main types of omega-3 fatty acid found in fish, and all of this reinforces the importance of including adequate omega-3’s in your diet.

We offer a high-DHA omega-3 supplement (purified from heavy metals and other contaminants found in many fish)
