Omega-3s for Specific Conditions

Omega-3s for Specific Conditions

If you’ve heard of omega-3, you have probably heard that omega-3 is good for you. However, do you know what omega-3 is and how it helps our bodies? Let’s do a quick run-down.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats.1,2 While they have many functions in our body and are important for good health, our bodies cannot produce them, so we must get them through our diet. We require omega-3 for numerous body functions, including brain and eye function.1,2 Foods such as fatty fish are rich in the beneficial omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are suggested to have various health benefits.1,2 Many people choose supplementation to get their daily intake of omega-3, and NutraSea® is a great option.1,2

Why NutraSea?

NutraSea is known for its high quality, premium, and great-tasting omega-3 products and the liquid products are proudly manufactured in Nova Scotia, Canada. NutraSea provides omega-3 from pure, sustainability sourced fish or plant-based ingredients. NutraSea is also PureCheck® verifiable. PureCheck reports contain the third-party test results for every lot of NutraSea – so you can ensure that you are receiving products that are tested for purity and potency.

What Is NutraSea Targeted?

NutraSea Targeted Omega-3 has Health Canada authorized claims that target specific conditions and needs states like rheumatoid arthritis, ADHD, and dry eye syndrome.

Let’s talk a little more about dry eye syndrome.

What Is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry eye syndrome is a multifactorial disease in which there is an imbalance in the tear system accompanied by ocular symptoms.4 Symptoms can occur because of not enough tears or poor-quality tears.

Some symptoms of dry eyes include:4

  • Stinging, burning or scratchy sensation
  • Difficulty wearing contacts
  • Light sensitivity
  • Eye redness
  • Blurred vision, eye fatigue, or watery eyes
  • Difficulty with nighttime driving

The National Dry Eye Disease Guidelines for Canadian Optometrists lists essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) as a long-term management strategy for chronic dry eye.3

Just one serving a day of NutraSea Dry Eye can help to provide relief and improve symptoms of dry eye syndrome. Each serving provides 1200 mg of EPA, 300 mg of DHA, and 150 mg of GLA.
