Nutritional support for optimizing tear production and promoting healthy tear film layers may assist with symptoms related to burning eyes:
Omega-3 fatty acids
Essential fatty acids like DHA, ALA and EPA modulate inflammation in the tear glands and eyelids. Since chronic inflammation in the eye is commonly associated with burning eyes, nutrition that modulates the inflammatory response may provide relief. Omega-3 fatty acids are most famously found in fish oil; plant sources of Omega-3s include flaxseed oil and borage oil.
Vitamin C and Vitamin B6
These vitamins are important because they help the body to absorb and use the Omega-3s that have such critical role in promoting a healthy inflammatory response. Vitamins C and B6 work to optimize Omega-3 benefits for eye comfort.
Supplemental orthomolecules including phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, and phosphatidylethanolamine help the tear glands to promote healthy tear film layers. These nutrients optimize all three layers of tear film, promoting well-hydrated eyes that are free of stinging, burning discomfort.
Mucin and phytosterols
Natural phytonutrients that play a key role in eye hydration, mucin and phytosterols support healthy tear production and hydration -- promoting eye comfort while minimizing burning.
With its active constituent curcumin, the famed Indian spice turmeric modulates inflammation in the eye's lids and tear glands -- promoting tear film stability and overall eye comfort.
