The omega 3 fatty acids are also known as essential. This is because these fats are important nutrients and without them, cells, nerves, muscles and organs cannot function properly. The production of hormone-like substances which regulate the blood pressure, heart rate and blood clotting is also determined by the presence of these fatty acids in our blood. Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids must be obtained from food or supplements, because although necessary to our bodies, they cannot be produced naturally.
These essential fatty acids are vital for the proper development of sight in infants. Studies have linked the lack of omega 3 fatty acids in adults with impaired vision. The fatty acids Visiclear play an important role in helping eye fluids drain, helping regulate intraocular pressure and that is why a prolong deficiency of these essential fats increases the risk of damaging the retina.
A 2007 study has shown that the risk of developing age related macular degeneration (which is the main cause of vision loss in elderly in the US) is severely reduced if you include at least two fish servings in our weekly diet. When compared to people who do not eat fish at all, the risk for developing age related macular degeneration has been reduced by 39%.
The dry eye syndrome (DES) in women can also be prevented by consuming essential fatty acids. The Boston Hospital’s study showed that if the ratio between the omega 6 fatty acids and the omega 3 fats is over 15:1, the risk of developing the dry eye syndrome increases more than twice. Including more than five tuna servings in your weekly diet can help reduce by up to 68%, the risk of developing DES compared to the risk women who only eat tuna once a week present.
Tuna, a fatty fish by nature, has been proven to have the greatest benefit in protecting the eyes and the sight of the test subjects.
Beside the rich content of Vitamin A and D, vitamins protecting the human sight, omega 3 fatty fish also plays an important role in preventing a series of eye related medical conditions.
