- Importance of Omega 3 Fatty Acids:
Omega-3 fatty acids are a special class of polyunsaturated fatty acids commonly found in plant seed oils, nut oils, and oily fish such as sardines and salmon. A large number of scientific studies worldwide have highlighted the multiple benefits of dietary omega-3 fatty acids in areas as diverse as heart, brain, and normal vision. The most researched omega-3 fatty acids are EPA & DHA.
DHA in the retina
Omega-3 fatty acids play an important structural and functional role in the retina, the part of the eye that detects light. DHA is a component of photoreceptor cells that are responsible for converting light into nerve signals. Photoreceptors contain the highest concentration of DHA of any cell in the body, DHA makes up over 50% of the total fatty acid content so maintaining adequate levels of DHA is essential for the retina to continue functioning properly and maintain healthy vision.
