ST. LOUIS, Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ZeaVision adds EyePromise EZ Tears to its brand of doctor-recommended, science-based nutraceutical products. EyePromise EZ Tears helps patients who suffer from dry eye, with a nutraceutical supplement featuring more than 1,000 mg of EPA/DHA Omega-3s, and seven other anti-inflammatory ingredients. EZ Tears is the third product in the EyePromise brand family, which also includes EyePromise Restore and EyePromise Zeaxanthin - professional formulas featuring Zeaxanthin, with more than 15 million doses safely consumed.
The EZ Tears formulation was designed in close collaboration with EyeCare Professionals to help relieve dry eye symptoms by addressing systemic and ocular inflammation. One in five patients suffer from dry eye, with symptoms such as burning, scratching, the feeling of a foreign particle in the eye, and even excessive watering to compensate for an overly dry eye.
Dr. Dennis Gierhart of ZeaVision says, "EyeCare Professionals and consumers have long awaited a unique and effective dry eye supplement - one that meets the stringent criteria necessary to earn EyeCare Professional endorsement. Early patient experience with EZ Tears has revealed dry eye relief in 91% of users - many within 2-3 weeks of beginning to take the supplement."
A daily dose of EyePromise EZ Tears includes two enteric-coated softgels to reduce aftertaste, fish burp, and provide enhanced tolerability. The EZ Tears formula features more than 1,000 mg of EPA/DHA Omega-3s; Vitamin A (1,000 IU); Vitamin D3 (2,000 IU); Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol 60 IU); Evening Primrose Oil (100 mg); Turmeric Extract (50 mg); Green Tea Extract (50 mg); and Mixed Tocotrienol/Mixed Tocopherol (20 mg).
Healthy tears are formed in three layers: lipid (oil), aqueous (water), and mucin (mucous). Dry eye can result from low tear production and inadequate chemical composition. In addition to discomfort, dry eye may also damage eye tissue and scar the cornea. EyePromise EZ Tears helps the tear glands produce more tears to moisturize the eye, while supporting healthy tear composition.
Common causes of dry eye include the aging process, wearing contact lenses, hormone levels, menopause, birth control, diabetes, environmental factors like allergies, wind, and dry climate, medications, and heavy computer usage.
