40 Percent Reduction in Heart Attacks by Taking Fish Oil Daily

1g of Omega-3 Daily

In two very large randomized controlled studies, led by Harvard University comprising over 26,000 participants who were tracked for 5 years, it was definitively shown that one derives significant heart health benefits from taking 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in a daily supplement. In fact the data were so positive that one researcher commented "The lower risk of heart attack was found particularly in those who have low fish consumption," Manson said. "That group had 19 percent reduction in all major cardiovascular events, plus they had a 40 percent reduction in heart attack."

Let me repeat that: A 40 percent reduction in heart attack! Wow, there has never been a drug that can show this type of benefit, and omega-3 comes with all the other benefits of lowering systemic inflammation.

I am very pleased that we finally have very large data sets to confirm the benefits of taking omega-3 daily. So even though many media outlets seem to seek out negative studies regarding omega-3 fish oil supplements. Be assured that the benefits are real and incomparable.

Now, let’s not forget that the type and brand of fish oil really matters. The vast majority of fish oil sold at the supermarket/drugstore/vitamin shop are of very low quality and negligible health benefits as they typically contain less than a couple hundred mg of actual omega-3 and are always in the inferior ethyl ester form - which loses 70% of it’s potency in digestion.

So be sure to continue to take our Ultra Dry Eye TG - which is wild caught in Alaska, delivers the highest amount of triglyceride omega-3 available per pill includes your daily dose of Vitamin D and is certified by lot to be free of contaminants!

The clinical trial studying Vitamin D (2,000 iu daily) found no heart health benefit but it did reduce the risk of cancer death by 25 percent!

85% of Dry Eye Patients Have MGD

MGD is a common cause of dry eye.
Have you been told that you might be suffering from MGD when you complain of eye discomfort? Do you know what it is? Do you know how to treat it? Well here's the skinny on meibomian gland dysfunction.

What is it?

The meibomian glands are arranged vertically along the eye lid. These glands release oils that maintain good tear coverage as the eye blinks. With gland dysfunction there is either to little or too much oil in the tear make-up.  Early on MGD may go unnoticed but if its left untreated the glands can become blocked by thickened secretions.  Chronically clogged glands are eventually unable to release any oils and results in permanent changes to tear make-up and chronic dry eye.

 Symptoms include:

Light Sensitivity
Red Eyes
Intermittent Blurry Vision
Treating MGD.

Using a warm compress
Using a specially made eye compress is soothing and effective.
The good news is that treating MGD is fairly simple and can be done at home in three steps.

Step 1.  Heating- Using a warm, moist compress for between 5-10 minutes a day will help dissolve the solidified oil that clogged the glands and increases oil secretion.

Step 2. Massage - Apply light pressure with your index finger or a cotton bud to the lid margin near the lash line.  Roll the finger upward on the lower lid while looking up, then roll the finger downward on the upper lid while looking down. Massage can irritate the eye if done too much; twice a day when the condition is acute but only once when symptoms decrease to maintain good eye health.

Step 3. Omega-3 - Adding or increasing your daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids will help maintain oil consistency. There are many food sources of omega-3 but most Americans don't get enough, taking a triglyceride form supplement that provides high levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 has been shown to improve all aspects of eye health.
