1. Omega 3’s
Omega 3 fatty acid is one of the 13 essential nutrients that the body needs to function. It is like the lube for the machine that is man. It is no surprise then, that this is beneficial to the condition of dry eyes. For this reason, I list it as my number one natural solution to dry eyes.
On top of benefiting the body in a myriad of other ways… this essential nutrient (that can be purchased almost anywhere that sells vitamins, and can also be gained through consumption of nuts, chia seeds, olive oil, flaxseeds, Brussels sprouts, hemp seed, algal oil, perilla oil, algae, leafy greens, fish, and more) particularly benefits the eyes by lubricating them so everything flows smoothly. If you suffer from dry eyes, taking this in pill form daily (on top of adjusting your diet to include these foods) might completely solve your problem within about seven days.
