High DHA, vitamins & minerals for Eye Aging Support
The retina is similar to the film in a camera and is responsible for receiving and converting light energy to visual signals before transmitting to the brain forming images. The Macula at the central part of the retina responsible for color and sharp vision. Over time, macula function can decline and this can affect people’s ability to read, drive, etc. and even see properly.
Studies show daily intake of Omega-3 (particularly DHA), lutein and zeaxanthin help to support the health of the Macula.
Frequently asked questions
Q: What is an rTG fish oil?
A: Many omega-3s are in a synthetic (ester) or unpurified form, which is difficult to absorb and leaves a fishy odor/aftertaste. PRN Omega-3s are in an ultra-purified triglyceride (rTG) form, which is a similar form to a piece of fish, but without the impurities. This form is easier for your body to absorb and micro-distilled to remove contaminants like PCBs, lead, mercury and more. PRN omega-3s are manufactured in a cGMP facility.
Q: When will I see an effect?
A: It will take about 60-90 days for Omega-3s to become fully saturated on a cellular level and therefore, to notice a difference. You may not notice the improvement taking place inside your body, but improvement can be measured by your doctor.
Q: Are there any side effects when taking this product?
A: PRN Omega-3s are clinically tested, safe and effective. Your body will recognize it just as if you were eating a piece of fish.
Q: Why can’t I just eat fish?
A: The American Heart Association and the American Cardiology Association recommend 2-3 grams of omega-3s daily (EPA+DHA). Taking 3 soft gels of PRN Omega-3s each day for a week is equivalent to eating 37 cans of tuna. Eating this much fish may cause an increased risk for mercury poisoning. Other fish that can be purchased in the stores are mostly farm raised which have little Omega-3s or wild caught which are optimal but are contaminated with harmful PCBs, dioxins, mercury, etc.
