The Importance of DHA

Guardion Health Sciences

Docosahexaeonic acid & eye healthA large body of evidence suggests that omega-3 fatty acids can help improve ocular as well as overall health. Omega-3 fatty acids include docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicoapentaenoic acid (EPA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), with most of the benefits coming from DHA specifically.

Though omega-3 fatty acids offer a wide range of health benefits, the average American diet does not include enough of them. Taking a supplement can help you get a sufficient amount of the fatty acids to reduce your risk of eye diseases and other diseases that can affect your entire body.

Why Are Omega-3 Fatty Acids Important?

Eye Health Benefits

The eye health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids begin at a young age. The results of numerous clinical studies show that infants who were fed DHA-supplemented formula demonstrated better visual acuity at 2 and 4 months of age compared to infants fed formula not containing DHA.

In studies of adults, those who regularly consumed oily fish or supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids were significantly less likely to develop macular degeneration than those who did not eat fish or take the supplements.

Research shows omega-3 fatty acids may be helpful in the prevention, treatment and improvement of dry eye syndrome, a very common disorder characterized by dry, itchy eyes, blurry vision and a gritty or sandy sensation in the eyes. Fatty acids are also believed to help the drainage of intraocular fluid from the eye, reducing the likelihood of a spike in eye pressure and glaucoma.

Whole Body Health Benefits

Not only are omega-3 fatty acids good for the eyes, but an overwhelming body of evidence points to their benefits for whole body health.

Omega 3 fatty acids & eye healthOne of the most important discoveries regarding the fatty acids is that they have been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Getting enough fatty acids can reduce factors known to cause heart disease; for example, they can reduce arrhythmias (irregularities in heartbeat), decrease blood triglycerides, slightly lower blood pressure, reduce the rate of plaque formation in arteries and lower overall levels of inflammation.

In addition, these fatty acids have been shown to help prevent, treat or improve a wide range of illnesses and diseases, including the following:

  • Inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disorders and periodontal diseases
  • Mental disorders like depression, bipolar disorder and autism
  • Dermatological problems like acne, psoriasis and skin damage from sunlight
  • Type 1 and type 2 diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Migraines

Getting The Proper Amounts of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The best way to glean the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids — particularly DHA and EPA — is to regularly consume cold-water fish like sardines, herring, salmon and tuna. Omega-3 fatty acids can also be found in flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, walnuts and dark green leafy vegetables, although the body does not process fatty acids from vegetable sources as well as it does the fatty acids from fish.

If you do not like to eat fish, or you want to ensure you consume enough fatty acids to get the maximum benefit, taking a supplement is wise. When choosing a supplement with omega-3 fatty acids, it is important to select a product that is high quality and from a great source.
