Watsonville, CA (July 2, 2008) Nordic Naturals announces the introduction of Ultimate DHA Eye, a synergistic blend of purified fish oil, providing an exceptionally high concentration of DHA in combination with the important eye nutrients, Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Each of these eye nutrients plays a distinct role in protecting the eyes and supporting healthy vision but most importantly, scientific investigations have shown that these three nutrients work in synergy, meaning that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their parts. The product is available in 60 soft gels and does not contain gluten, yeast, milk derivatives, or artificial colors and flavors.
According to Dr. Douglas MacKay, Nordic Naturals Research Advisor, “Eye tissue has a unique biochemical demand for the omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA from fish oil because these fats are highly concentrated within the cells of the eye and are necessary to maintain healthy structure and function of ocular tissue. We have added Lutein and Zeaxanthin to provide protective pigment for the delicate light-absorbing ocular cells.”
Ultimate DHA Eye provides a blend of nutrients that have been shown to:
• Support the development and maintenance of eye tissue
• Protect ocular cells from oxidative stress
• Support healthy vision and tissue moisture
• Slow the progression of age-related eye disorders
“A large body of scientific evidence supports the use of omega-3 fatty acids for ocular health, including a recent large-scale meta-analysis showing that high intake of omega-3 fatty acids and fish may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by up to 38 per cent,” adds Dr. MacKay.
