Pros: May help ease Chronic Dry Eye and promote cellular and heart health
Cons: The size of a softgel is approximately 15/16". May be hard for some to swallow.
Spring Valley Flax Oil – Twin Pack may help ease the symptoms of Chronic Dry Eye and keep your heart and cells healthier too.
I’ve had Chronic Dry Eye for several years. I was using the prescription eye drops, Restasis; but I was not getting enough relief. After a couple of hours on the computer, my vision would be blurred; and I would start to rub my eyes because they were burning. My doctor suggested that I take 2,400 mg per day of Flaxseed Oil.
I picked up a Twin Pack, an even better value, of Spring Valley Flax Oil. There are 1,200 mg of Flaxseed Oil per softgel and 200 softgels per bottle. I take one softgel in the morning and one in the evening. I like taking any kind of supplement in a gelcap because I feel it gets into your system more efficiently than a hard tablet. The size of each softgel is approximately 15/16" which is relatively large. I do not have any problem swallowing these softgels; but if you have a problem with large pills, make sure you drink plenty of water. It is suggested on the bottle that you take this supplement with a meal.
In approximately a month's time I noticed a definite improvement in my Chronic Dry Eye condition when used with my Restasis eyedrops. My eyes are not as dry; and I do not experience as much burning and blurry vision as I once did. I do not experience any aftertaste from this product, nor do I have any side effects.
What I love about the Nature Valley Flax Oil is that there are no preservatives and no artificial flavors.
