The addition of ProDHA to my regimen has made a noticeable difference. Diagnosed just this year with macular degeneration and knowing what that can mean since even my grandmother had it, VisiVite is a life saver. Dr Krawitz and team are always right there for me with answers to questions and first class product. My eyes now are more moist and steadier. They are holding steady I’m sure due my VisiVite line of defense and I couldn’t be more grateful.
why am I taking these?
I have been using it for a few years now. no complains.
My eyes seem very happy with the addition of ProDHA. I’m using fewer eye drops and they are clearer and look and feel better!
I have used this item for about 3 years, and have found it to be very beneficial to my overall health.
Is this product molecularly distilled to insure no hazardous chemicals?
Nordic Naturals' manufacturing processes enable them to deliver industry–leading freshness and purity levels. They use several steps in processing their oils, from water and clay filters to molecular distillation, with no chemicals or excessive heat, all while preserving the natural constituents of the oil to the highest degree possible. A purification process removes any potential environmental toxins (heavy metals, dioxins, PCBs, etc.), saturated fats, and other undesirable organic compounds, leaving only the beneficial components of the fish oil (omegas 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, etc.). They also utilize a proprietary nitrogen (oxygen–free) environment to achieve their leading freshness levels, and to further reduce heat requirements, thereby maintaining the integrity of the oils. Moreover, they use only natural enzymes to form triglycerides for all their high–concentrate products, and all their oils are manufactured in triglyceride form in order to best preserve the oil and enhance absorption and utilization.
I recently went to my eye doctor and was told the fish oil I needed needs to say "re-esterfied Triglyceride Form" on it or it doesn't absorb properly. Is this something new in research? I have dry eye issues and she wants me to take XXX brand and wondering if I have to pay that much to get the same benefit. is your fish oil comparable? Thank you
Omega 3s in fish have three tails, and are therefore called TRIGLYERIDE forms. During processing, omega 3s lose the two tails and have only one tail. High quality manufacturers, including VisiVite, "re-esterify" the omega 3s so that they have three tails for improved absorption and efficacy. The three omega 3s sold on VisiVIte.com all are triglyeride reesterified omega 3s, including Nordic Naturals ProDHA 1000 (primarily for macular and brain support), as well as VisiVIte's two dry eye formulas: VisiVite Dry Eye Relief TG-1000 and VisiVite Quench TG-1000 (TG stands for triglyceride).

I have AMD and I recently added Nordic Naturals PRO-DHA 1000 to my AREDS 2 Gold. In researching the National Eye Institute site, I only found studies well over 10 years old indicating little or no real benefit in using fish oil as a supplement for eye disorders. Have there been any more recent studies indicating otherwise that I am unaware of?
The AREDS2 trial by the National Eye Institute used relatively low dosage of omega 3s that were predominantly made of EPA. Nordic Naturals ProDHA is a high potency omega 3 that is predominantly DHA. There are many studies in the literature addressing omega 3s and AMD, but this review article may be helpful:
