Dr. Whitaker's Eyedrate - 60 softgels

Finally, Lubricating Eye Comfort Delivered—From the Inside Out!

Eyedrate™ helps support: Well-hydrated eyes Natural tear production Healthy tear film Overall eye comfort Plus, powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin, for added eye support

My Eyedrate ocular hydration supplement is a one-of-a-kind softgel formula that combines research levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids with omega-7 fatty acid derived from sea buckthorn seed oil. Eyedrate also combines astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, to provide an all-in-one solution for eye hydration, tear production, and overall eye comfort.

Lubricate and protect your eyes with this effective all-natural formula

Over-the-counter eye drops are popular these days yet many of them can actually irritate your eyes. Furthermore, most do nothing to address underlying issues. Eyedrate is a natural supplement—free of dyes and synthetic derivatives—that works from the inside out, delivering the essential nutrients your body needs to help keep your eyes well lubricated. Cross section of tear film 3 Targeted, Researched Nutrients—One-of-a-Kind Eye Hydrating Formula!

#1: Eyedrate's highly concentrated fish oil complex delivers research levels of omega-3s for essential eye functions

DHA is the predominant essential fatty acid in the retina, making up 30–40% of the fatty acids found in the photoreceptors. Because these portions of the retina are constantly being renewed, a regular supply of DHA is required for proper retinal function. Omega-3s also promote a normal inflammatory response, which leads to a healthy ocular tear film and a healthy ocular surface.

That's why Eyedrate contains a highly concentrated fish oil complex rich in the two primary omega-3 fatty acids—EPA and DHA. They can't be synthesized in the human body but are critical for bodily functions, which is why supplementation is key.

Omega-3s significantly improve eye moisture and tear production

In a randomized, double blind study, 64 individuals were divided into two groups. For one month, one group consumed 360 mg EPA and 240 mg DHA per day (the amount in Eyedrate), while the other group received a placebo.

The results were nothing short of amazing: The individuals who consumed the EPA/DHA combination had a significantly better improvement in eye moisture—a 71% improvement compared to 3.3% for the placebo group. The mean TBUT (tear film break-up time) in the omega-3 group increased by approximately 1.7 seconds. That may not sound like a lot but when it comes to your eyes, it's significant—and the longer your eyes stay moist, the more stable the tear film.

In a second test measuring tear production, the omega-3 group showed significant improvement over the placebo group—22.3% vs 5.1%.1

#2: The "other" fatty acid: Omega-7 from sea buckthorn seed oil, known since ancient times for its medicinal benefits

Of all the omega fatty acids, it's true that omega-3s usually get most of the attention. But omega-7s have their beneficial roles as well, particularly when it comes to heart health and vision support.

That's why I'm so enthusiastic about sea buckthorn seed oil, which is pressed from the fruits and seeds of the bright orange sea buckthorn berry. Its use has been traced back to traditional Chinese medicine as early as the Tang Dynasty over 1,000 years ago, and its wide range of medicinal uses, recorded in literary works, as early as the 8th century, include eye hydration.

Sea buckthorn seed oil contains palmitoleic acid and antioxidants, and much more omega-7s than a typical dose of omega-7 from fish sources. Plus it's a natural source of a full spectrum of additional antioxidants, vitamins and minerals lacking in marine-sourced products, including vitamins C and E, which may protect the eye from oxidative damage.

#3: Super nutrient astaxanthin: A unique and highly potent carotenoid and antioxidant

Of all the carotenoids, astaxanthin is one of only three that can cross the blood-retinal barrier. In other words, due to its unique cell membrane, astaxanthin easily enters the tissues of the eyes so it can exert its positive effects where it's needed most. This makes it a highly effective antioxidant for eye protection as well as brain health.

Compared to other carotenoids, astaxanthin's free radical scavenging activity is far more potent.2 In fact, astaxanthin has been found to have 10 times the antioxidant capacity than zeaxanthin, lutein, canthaxanthin, and beta-carotene, and 100 times that of alpha tocopherol.3

Astaxanthin helps protect the mitochondria against free radicals, conserving their antioxidant capacity and enhancing their efficiency in producing energy.4 It also increases mitochondrial activity in the retinal cells by increasing oxygen consumption while controlling oxidative stress.5

Specifically related to vision, this red, fat-soluble pigment concentrates in the iris-ciliary muscle of the eye, helping the eyes shift focus from close up to long distance. And like EPA and DHA, astaxanthin cannot be synthesized by the body, thus it must be obtained from diet or supplementation.

If you're looking to support lubricated, healthy eyes, with a powerful, research-backed solution—Eyedrate is the nutritional supplement for you.

Doctor's Suggested Use: Take 2 softgels once daily with a meal.
