I can't see!

Recently, many eye care professionals have reached agreement on an important innovation in combating vision loss.

Wait for it ...

This "innovation" is putting "an emphasis on healthy lifestyle, healthy diet, and the addition of dietary and nutritional supplements."

But wait, there's more. They also now agree that essential fatty acids are essential to the health of your vision.

All I can say is "wow"!

The American Academy of Optometry recently had their annual meeting. There, they discussed how essential fatty acids play a role in ocular health. Later, in an interview, the doctor who presented about EFAs at the meeting remarked on the "recent interest" in omega-3 fatty acids.

This is nothing new.

For years we've been making sure to get plenty of omega-3s for ages. We've been loading up on our fatty fish and flaxseed sources of omega-3s...for a long time now. We didn't have to wait around for the final results of more than 20,000 studies--studies that now have confirmed how important they are for our health--to recognize a good thing when we saw it.

But if you are just now hearing about this, start working on your supplentation. A couple of great options are:

Bright Eyes from FEBICO and an herbal supplement called Eyebright from Oregon's Wild Harvest.
