Have a problem with dry eyes? Then today’s doctor’s prescription might help. Eye doctors suggest ingesting a teaspoon a day of this. It could ease those dry irritated eyes. What are they talking about? Flax seed oil. One study followed 200 people with dry eyes and found 85% found total relief of symptoms after taking 2000 milligrams of flax seed oil daily for two months. The study followed these patients over three years and the results lasted. We know flax seeds are a rich source of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids and flax seed has twice as much omega-3s as fish oil so researchers believe these fatty acids help improve the quality and flow of the eye’s natural oils, easing that dryness. And it can do other things too, like 4000 milligrams a day can help with fibromyalgia. Oh. Not as a substitute for medication. Don’t stop your medicine and say… What I always say is, we talk on the show about letting food be your medicine and you know, flax seeds, flax seed oil, these are things that you can add them to your cereal, your salads, there’s just all these little great places you can add a little flax seed here, a little flax seed there. And your eyes will love it. Your eyes will love it, okay.
