Omega 3 fatty acids have been found to have countless benefits for the body and brain, benefitting everything from your skin and hair to your mind’s ability to process as you age. Slowing down aging, and wrinkles, and improving cell function are good enough reasons to get your daily dose, but did you know that it can also help to relieve dry eyes?

Omega 3’s is a great way to get your eyes feeling good again. Here are some of the great benefits you can expect when you get your daily intake:

  • Relief from itchy eyes – getting rid of the feeling of always having to scratch your eyes.
  • Help to moisten the eyes to produce tears normally, keeping eyes at a comfortably moist level
  • Anti-inflammatory properties help relieve puffiness associated with dry eye

  • Enriched Dairy
  • Edamame
  • Enriched eggs
  • Flaxseed
  • Canola Oil
