Degenerative rotator cuff tears are associated with a low Omega-3 Index

Patients with full thickness degenerative rotator cuff tears had a significantly lower Omega-3 Index than controls without rotator cuff tendinopathy. Whether a lower Omega-3 Index represents an independent risk factor for degenerative rotator cuff tears should be further investigated, e.g. in a longitudinal study.

EPA and Treatment of Major Depressive Disease

Peet,Malcolm; Stokes, Caroline
Omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of psychiatric disorders
Drugs 2005;65:1051-1059
The importance of omega-3 fatty acids for physical health is now well recognised and there is increasing evidence that omega-3 fatty acids may also be important to mental health. The two main omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) have important biological functions in the CNS. DHA is a major structural component of neuronal membranes, and changing the fatty acid composition of neuronal membranes leads to functional changes in the activity of receptors and other proteins embedded in the membrane phospholipid. EPA has important physiological functions that can affect neuronal activity. Epidemiological studies indicate an association between depression and low dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids, and biochemical studies have shown reduced levels of omega-3 fatty acids in red blood cell membranes in both depressive and schizophrenic patients.Five of six double-blind, placebo-controlled trials in schizophrenia, and four of six such trials in depression, have reported therapeutic benefit from omega-3 fatty acids in either the primary or secondary statistical analysis, particularly when EPA is added on to existing psychotropic medication. Individual clinical trials have suggested benefits of EPA treatment in borderline personality disorder and of combined omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid treatment for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. The evidence to date supports the adjunctive use of omega-3 fatty acids in the management of treatment unresponsive depression and schizophrenia. As these conditions are associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease and diabetes mellitus, omega- 3 fatty acids should also benefit the physical state of these patients. However, as the clinical research evidence is preliminary, large, and definitive randomised controlled trials similar to those required for the licensing of any new pharmacological treatment are needed

DRY EYE SYNDROME DES

People with DES complains most frequently of a scratchy or foreign body sensation. Redness, pain, itching, inability to produce tears, light sensitivity, and blurred vision with difficulty driving after dark are common symptoms. The symptoms are located mainly to the pain sensitive cornea.

Recent animal experiments have demonstrated that DES is not exclusively a disease located to the cornea since inflammatory cells and immunological chemical mediators were found in the tear fluid. Since cornea does not contain tissue engaged in an inflammatory process the lacrimal gland and the conjunctiva have to participate in the syndrome even though symptoms relate to cornea.

A number of controlled clinical studies have been published where these fatty acids have been given in a placebo-controlled design. Rahul Bhargava and colleagues (1) included 264 DES subjects given 1g daily of marine omega3 fatty acids mainly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and compared effects on symptoms, tear production and corneal cell integrity. A large control group of 254 individuals were given matching placebo. After three months, there was a significant reduction in symptom score in the omega3 group along with improvement in tear production and corneal cell integrity. Kawatita K et al (2) included 27 DES patients in a study providing half of the group with a product containing 1.3g of EPA and 0,5 g of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) daily for 12 weeks. Symptoms were significantly reduced in the intervention group.

Kangari H and collaborators included sixty-four patients with dry eye symptoms (3). The subjects were randomized into two groups: 33 persons in the treatment group given 2 capsules of omega-3 (each containing 180 mg EPA and 120 mg DHA and 31 persons in the placebo group. The tear break-up time (TBUT), Schirmer’s score, and Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) were measured 1 month after the intervention. Repeated-measures analysis of variance showed that improvements in TBUT, OSDI, and Schirmer’s scores were significantly better in the treatment group than in the placebo group. The changes in the treatment and placebo groups were 71% and 3.3% for TBUT (P<0.001), 26% and 4% (P=0.004) for dry eye symptoms, and 22.3% and 5.1% for Schirmer’s score (P=0.033), respectively. In conclusion, his study demonstrated that omega-3 fatty acids for 30 days was associated with a decrease in the rate of tear evaporation, an improvement in dry eye symptoms, and an increase in tear secretion.

In another study by Bhargava R and Kumar P 496 contact lens carriers with DES were randomly allocated to treatment with marine omega3 fatty acids (0.6g daily) or placebo for six months (4). The study demonstrated a significant improvement in dry eye symptoms and an increase in tear secretion in the omega3 treated group. The Bhargava group included 428 computer workers with DES in another study (5). Half the group were given the same dose of omega3 fatty acids as in study 7. The rest were provided with matching placebo capsules and followed for three months. There was a significant improvement in symptoms followed by increased tear production in the active treatment group. A recent study by Bhargava R and collaborators evaluated the effect of higher omega 3 fatty acid dose than in their previous studies namely 2,400 mg/day for 45 days on dry eye symptoms, tear production, stability, and conjunctival cytology in young and middle-aged visual display terminal (VDT) users (6). It was a randomized, double-blind, interventional study where 256 VDT users were randomized to receive omega-3 while 266 subjects received matching placebo capsules. Patients were evaluated at baseline, 30 days, and 45 days. The primary outcome measure was an improvement in dry eye symptoms. Secondary outcome measures were improvement in the Nelson grade on conjunctival impression cytology, Schirmer test values, and tear film breakup time (TBUT). In the omega3 group, the mean symptom score differed significantly between active treatment and placebo (P<0.005) as did the TBUT and Nelson grade evaluation. Schirmer test values did not differ significantly after adjustment for multiple comparisons. Consumption of 2,400 mg/day of O3FA supplement improved symptoms, tear stability, and conjunctival cytology but not tear production in symptomatic VDT users.

In a meta-analysis of published studies using a randomized, placebo-controlled design, Liu A and Yi J included a total of 790 participants in seven independent studies published between 2007 and 2013 (8). The authors concluded that based on the experience from these studies Omega3 fatty acid seemed to offer an effective therapy for DES.

Association of blood levels of marine omega-3 fatty acids with coronary calcification and calcium density in Japanese men

European Journal of Clinical Nutrition logo

Clinical trials of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) among high-risk groups in Japan in which consumption of mairne-omega-3 fatty acids (OM3) is much higher than other countries showed slower progression of coronary atherosclerosis. We aimed to determine the cross-sectional associations of coronary artery calcification (CAC) and calcium density with OM3, EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), two principal OM3, in the general population in Japan.

Natural Therapy of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Dry Eyes.

Dr Michael Lange OD CNS

Michael Lange OD, CNS founder of Lange Eye Care and The Lange Eye Institute has  used natural approaches to improve Meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eyes since 1992 with great success.  Dr. Lange discusses the protocol he uses for dry eye and Meibomian gland problem patients.

images

Natural therapy for meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eye is a combination of proper lid hygiene, good diet, plenty of hydration, correct ratio of supplements and proper lubricating eye drops. Blepharitis  a condition that causes the eye lids to become inflamed and crusty secondarily to a host of pathogens. Meibomian gland dysfunction is when small glands along the lower and upper lid margins become blocked and inflamed. These conditions can lead to lid infections, dry eyes and permanent vision loss if proper treatment isn’t initiated.  The eye lids accumulate  lots of bacteria, viral flora, antigens. mold, fungus and parasites so it is crucial that the lids are cleaned properly.  Dr. Lange recommends seeing your local optometrist or ophthalmologist to determine if you have blepharitis and if so what kind?? 

Most mild forms of blepharitis can be controlled with a special lid scrub foam like Ocusoft Plus. Moderate forms of blepharitis will need Ocusoft Platinum foam or Oasis Hypochlorus eye lid spray  However, some forms of blepharitis are related to a parasite called demodex. If demodex is in the lashes and the hair follicles then traditional lid scrubs will not help . Dr. Lange recommends use of a commercially available product called Ocusoft Demodex Cleanser to treat this type of demodex condition.  The combination of lid scrubs  will get most forms of blepharitis under control within one to two months. However if this condition does not respond to this therapy then a topical and sometimes oral medication may be prescribed.

Dr. Lange recommends using hot compresses two to three times a day for ten minutes with gentle massage of the lid margins.  This will help to liquify the clogged meibomian glands and allow the outer lipid layer of the tear film to be healthy.  A patient can use a warm wash cloth for this but the simplest and most effective way to heat up the meibomian glands is to use a Bruder eye hydrating Mask, this mask retails for $25 and  last for years.  The combination of hot compresses and lid scrubs will open up the meibomian glands and allow a much healthier secretion of tears resulting in improved dry eye symptomology.

Michael Lange OD, CNS also states that an over haul  in the typical American diet is crucial for dry eye patients.  Most Americans are eating a highly refined and overly processed diet very high in omega 6.  He recommends patients adapt an all organic, gluten free diet. He has developed a  diet called “The Lange Survival Diet”.   This is an anti inflammatory diet that helps the body detoxify.  The typical American diet is pro inflammatory and is one of the reasons we have so much inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a root cause of dry eyes. Natural treatment of dry eyes starts with adjustment in the diet.  Michael Lange OD sees many patients with meibomian gland dysfunction improve dramatically  with just an improvement in diet.

Most Americans are dehydrated! Dehydration is also a major contributing factor to dry eyes.  Michael Lange OD, CNS preaches on his syndicated radio show and to his patients  to drink half your body weight in spring water.  Drink spring water, or Watt-Ahh water  not distilled water or reverse osmosis water. Spring water is high in minerals and relatively alkaline. Reverse osmosis and distilled water is acidic  and mineral free.  In theory if a patient drinks a lot of distilled water or reverse osmosis water then due to the laws of osmosis the minerals in the body can be leached out causing mineral deficiency in the body.  This can aggravate a dry eye condition.

Dr Lange also recommends drinking 1-2 glasses of coconut water a day to gain some valuable minerals like magnesium and potassium.

One cup of coffee a day may be beneficial for dry eyes however more than one cup becomes a diuretic.To counter effect the coffee one must drink three  additional cups of water for every cup of coffee. Nutritional supplements for dry eyes and blocked meibomian glands are becoming the gold standard because they work.

fortifeye grass fed whey protein isolate bottle

Dr Michael Lange has also been adding a non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand or American cows to all of his dry eye patients.  This type of protein is very high in covalent bonded cysteine, CLA and lactoferrin.  Blending one scoop of this form of protein along with  either spring water, coconut water, coconut milk, goats milk , A2 cows milk  or hemp milk in a smoothie is a great way to get theses valuable dry eye nutrients.  This can also be used as a meal replacement to help with weight management.  Fortifeye Vitamins has a delicious non denatured whey protein concentrate from New Zealand grass fed  cows called Fortifeye Super Protein. The best deal on a whey protein is the Fortifeye Grass Fed Whey Isolate in a bag at only $59 for 60 servings. This whey isolate is also non denatured and comes form American grass fed cows.

Dr. Lange recommends  1600- 2400 mg of triglyceride form omega 3 fish oil daily for anyone under 240lbs.  If you are over 240 lbs then higher amounts of triglyceride form omega 3 fish oil is recommended.  The addition of 6 mg of a super carotenoid called astaxanthin can be taken with omega 3 fish oil.  Astaxanthin is one of the most potent natural anti inflammatory/ antioxidant nutrients.  Astaxanthin helps to reduce eye strain , improve focusing ability of the eye and  reduce eye fatigue associated with prolonged near point or computer work.  Astaxanthin helps control oxidative stress and inflammation. Many new studies  are proving astaxanthin is beneficial for dry eyes.   The combination of 1600 mg -2400mg of omega 3 and 6 mg of astaxanthin has seen reduction in  dry and tired eye symptoms.  Michael Lange OD, CNS is the formulator of three specific supplements he developed for Dry Tired eyes: Fortifeye Super Omega has 1600mg of TG form Omega 3 , Fortfeye Super Omega 3 Max with 2400 mg of TG form Omeg 3 and Fortifeye Focus has 6mg of astaxanthin, 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin isomers.  Learn more at www.fortifeye.com .  Astaxanthin also has some other great evidence based health benefits;  acting as a natural sun screen, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles in the face, astaxanthin improves choroidal circulation, lowers CRP and cholesterol, improves muscle endurance and muscle recovery and has a very high ORAC value so great at quenching free radicals.   Wild Alaskan Salmon is a power food because it has both omega 3 in the triglyceride form and astaxanthin.  The combination of Fortifeye Super Omega Or Super Omega 3 Max and Fortifeye Focus seems to improve the quality of tear film that is secreted . Patients also report this combination seems to  help lower inflammation in the entire body .  Its maximum effect takes three to four months but many people notice some improvement in two weeks.  One last nutrient that has some benefit  for dry eyes is GLA. However the ratio of GLA is crucial  if its going to work.  GLA is an omega 6 and if too much is taken it will increase inflammation in the body.  GLA from black currant seed oil seems to work the best due to the fact that it has ALA (vegetable source of omega 3 ) as well as GLA.  Dr. Lange has tried many different combinations of GLA and Omega 3 in extremely busy dry eye practices in Florida and has come to the conclusion that  a ratio of close to 10-1 omega 3 to GLA is ideal natural therapy for dry eyes.  For dry eye benefits he recommends  130-160mg of GLA to 1600-2400 mg of omega 3.   Michael Lange OD, CNS says the triple whammy for natural dry eye treatment is  Fortifeye Super Omega 2 -4 per day depending on weight, 1 Fortifeye Focus, and 1 Fortifeye Black Currant oil/ GLA.  This combination has been bundled together and is called Fortifeye Advanced Dry Eye Therapy: https://www.fortifeye.com/products/advanced-dry-eye-therapy/  Doctors all over the globe are recommending this new dry eye supplement to their patients with positive results

The final part to natural treatment of dry eyes is to add a good lubricating eye drop.  Michael Lange OD, CNS likes to use preservative free lubricating eye drops if they are going to be used more than two times a day. OptaseOasis tears Oasis tears plus, Retaine MGD and Fresh Kote  are four lubricating eye drops Dr Lange uses on most of his patients.   He likes  Oasis and Optase because it has a form of hyaluranic acid  that helps eliminate dry eye symptoms longer than most OTC artificial tears.  Often times in very dry eyes  related to meibomian gland dysfunction he will add Retaine MGD preservative free drops along with Oasis, Optase or Fresh Kote to get broader coverage.
In summary , when a combination of proper lid hygiene, diet, hydration, correct supplements and good artificial tears are used many dry eye conditions  that  are a result of blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction will start to improve.  Patients  with dry eyes have come from all over the country  to The Lange Eye Institute in The Villages Florida to learn more about natural treatment for dry eyes.  Learn more about Lange Eye Care at www.langeeyecare.com  and learn more about all the products discussed in this article at www.fortifeye.com  to order or get more information on Dry Eye Nutrition  u can call 866 503 9746 .
