  Omega-3 EFA



Essential Fatty Acids [EFAs]

are divided into two categories- the first is omega-3 EFA and the second is omega-6 EFA. Both make up polyunsaturated fats in the body, and both are necessary to good health.

Omega-3, is an alpha-linoleic acid [LNA for short] and it helps the body convert prostaglandins, which moderate the pressure inside the eye.

In the August 2001 ‘Archives of Ophthalmology’ a published article came out claiming that a link had been found between omega-3 and it ability to prevent the deterioration of severe muscular degeneration.
