This formulation was developed expressly for chronic (and severe) dry eyes.
BioTears was designed by a women-led research team that invesigated the nutritional basis of inflammed and dry eyes resulting from overwork, too many hours at the computer, allergies, and other causes. It is carefully redesigned whenever new nutritional research is available.
Research studies have suggested that these specific nutrients help to maintain normal production of tears and moisture from from the mucous membraines, not only of the eye, but of other parts of the body: vagina, joints & synovial membranes.
These gelcaps blend essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids with other nutrients that assist in their absorption and metabolism. They contain nutrients are suggested to modulate goblet cell/mucin production, tear gland and meibomian gland output, and to appropriately limit COX2 enzyme, prostaglandin PGE2 (inflammatory) and interleukin Il-6.
Each bottle contains 120 softgels.
- Recommended dosage is 4 capsules a day.
