More Good News About Omega-3 Fatty Acids

It seems a day doesn't go by without more good news about Omega-3 Fatty Acid dietary supplements! We are anxiously awaiting the publication of the AREDS II study on Macular Degeneration (AMD), but in the mean time a study looking at just Omega-3 supplements has some very good news for AMD prevention.

A study has been following a number of health problems in almost 40,000 female nurses over more than 10 years. One of the things studied has been the development of AMD. Analyzing the diets of these nurses the investigators discovered that those women who consume Omega-3 Fatty Acids in the DHA and EPA forms have an approximately 33% LOWER chance of getting AMD!

The DHA and IPA forms of Omega-3 Fatty Acids are called the Triglyceride forms. After many years of trying to keep up on the literally hundreds of brands and levels of quality in drug stores the doctors at Skyvision recently chose a very special company, Doctor's Advantage, to supply our patients with the highest quality nutritional supplements for AMD and other problems.

Doctor's Advantage makes an Omega-3 Fatty Acid supplement called "Omega Shield". It is only available from eye doctors, but the company will send it directly to your home! Make sure that you ask about "Omega Shield" when you come to see the eye doctors at Skyvision Centers. This one very good way to practice preventative medicine for your eyes!
