Healthy eyes are lubricated with an even layer of tears that serves as a protective film, called the tear film, to help to protect the cornea, which is the front surface of the eye. A healthy tear film consists of the right mix of oils, water, proteins, and mucus. Healthy tears and a healthy tear film are critical for support of the surface of the eye.
Omega-3 fatty acids help support the eye’s tear film, by supporting the small glands on the edge of the eyelid, called the meibomian glands which help make the oil for the tear film.
Omega-3s are needed for healthy tears and optimal eye health, and also for exceptional overall health. Omega-3s are not produced by our body and must be obtained by diet or supplementation.
Dietary modifications with omega-3 fatty acids should be part of the first step for healthy tear support.
Most Americans don’t get enough omega-3 fatty acids, according to a study of the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2003–2008
Pristene® is a natural, Certified Vegan, Non-GMO, gluten-free eye health supplement for healthy tear support and eye comfort.
Maquiberry is a South American berry with high antioxidant activity. Pristene® contains maquiberry extract at optimal levels clinically shown to support healthy tear production.
The omega 3 fatty acids in Pristene® are sourced from algae, or algal oil. Algae is more environmentally friendly and sustainable than fish oil, and fish obtain their omega 3's from consuming algae.
Research has shown that microscopic pieces of plastic are accumulating in our oceans. Fish eat these tiny pieces of plastic which accumulate in their tissue, along with other environmental pollutants like mercury, dioxins and industrial chemicals such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). When people eat fish, they're also consuming these chemicals and pieces of plastic.
Because Pristene® uses algae, or algal oil as the source of omega 3's, which is also what fish eat to obtain their omega 3's, it is free of these contaminants.
Pristene® is Certified Vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free, and does not contain any allergens from the 8 major foods or food groups identified by the US Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA). Manufactured in an NSF certified cGMP facility in California using ingredients from around the world.
