Product Description:

Recommended Use or Purpose:

If you want the benefits of Vitalux* AREDS and the added power of omega-3…

Choose Vitalux* plus OMEGA-3, Omega-3 is a naturally occurring fat found mostly in fish that can help defend against the retinal cell damage associated with AMD. Eating a lot of fish is one way to experience the benefits of omega-3.

If you, like most Canadians, don’t eat enough of it, taking a supplement like Vitalux* plus OMEGA-3 is a proven way to “detoxify” and repair damage to your retina.

Why Omega-3 for vision?

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are two types of omega-3 fatty acids that play an essential role inside the human retina. There, these vital compounds are thought to protect against inflammation, repair damaged light-sensing cells, and inhibit the growth of tiny, leaky blood vessels characteristic of advanced AMD. Although the human body needs omega-3 fatty acids, it doesn’t make them. Instead, we get them from the foods we eat. Fish is a particularly excellent source of DHA and EPA omega-3.

With that as background information, researchers wanted to put omega-3 to the test. The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) Research Group decided to evaluate the relationship of omega-3 intake and AMD.

First, they categorized the eye health of 4,519 people aged 60 to 80, dividing them into 5 groups ranging from those who did not have AMD at all, to those with mild cases, to those with advanced disease. Next they examined dietary data pulled from extensive questionnaires completed by each person participating in the study. Through statistical analyses, they could then study the relationship between levels of omega-3 intake and AMD progression.

AREDS Report No. 20 clearly demonstrated that people with more omega-3 in their diets were less likely to have severe AMD.

Specific findings reported in AREDS No. 20 include:
• Study participants in the top fifth of omega-3 consumption were 40% less likely to have advanced AMD than people in the bottom fifth
• The risk of developing advanced AMD was reduced by 39% for study participants who ate an average of 2 or more servings of fish per week

These results indicate that the more omega-3 you have in your diet, the less chance you have for developing advanced AMD. Currently, the average Canadian is not getting enough omega-3 in his or her diet. If you are concerned that you may not be eating enough fish, you may want to consider taking a vitamin supplement formulated to supply high-yield omega-3 fatty acids. Please check with your Health Care Professional if you consider this option.
