VisionPro EPA/DHA/GLA supports natural tear production, healthy tear film composition and retention of eye moisture. A cross-sectional study of 32, 470 women demonstrated a significant association between omega-3 fatty acid intake and ocular surface hydration. Several randomized controlled clinical trials have indicated that fish oils provide significant support for healthy tear function and associated visual comfort scores. Specifically, EPA and DHA support the coating of fluid that covers the eyes. These omega-3 fatty acids are incorporated into the lipid layer of the eye to maintain its fluidity and viscosity. By supporting the functional properties of the lipid layer, EPA and DHA promote retention of water in the underlying aqueous layer. EPA and DHA also promote healthy prostaglandin and cytokine balance to help protect the secretory function of the lacrimal glands. In addition, VisionPro EPA/DHA/GLA provides 75 mg GLA per serving from cold-pressed borage oil. Several studies have demonstrated that GLA-rich oils provide unique support for mucin production, prostaglandin balance and healthy tear film characteristics.
VisionPro EPA/DHA/GLA combines ultra-pure, molecularly distilled triglyceride fish oil with borage oil to provide 855 mg EPA, 645 mg DHA and 75 mg GLA per serving for healthy tear production and maintenance of all three layers of tear film in normally functioning eyes.
