Dry eye is a common chronic eye surface issue that is characterized by a loss of tear film stability which allows the drainage of tears out of the eye, inflammation, pain, and vision impairment. Dry eye symptoms include:
You’ve probably tried several dry eye home remedies with little success. Some medications, autoimmune diseases, surgery, or even just getting older (I hate saying this one!) can cause your eyes to make fewer tears or the right type of tears.
In 2008, one of my clients was taking Flourish Moisture Solution capsules for her terribly dry and cracked heels. The kind of issue that snags hose and socks unless she did a pumice stone and file treatment each day. I recommend these capsules for dry skin, cracked heals, and arthritis because the active ingredient is found in the skin and joints. My client noticed after a month that not only did her heels look and feel better she didn’t have to use her lubricating eye drops. She asked if the dry heal supplement could help her eyes. I admit, I didn’t know, but learned in pharmacy school where to look. After researching the medical journals I discovered that the active ingredient in Flourish Moisture Solution was indeed one of the substances in your body that thickens tears and helps tears hold onto water.
In 2012, we asked Dr. Moore, O.D. to give Flourish Moisture Solution oral capsules to 12 of her patients that were taking Restasis eye drops. The Restasis drops did not provide adequate improvement in dry eye symptoms because they did not address the underlying cause of their dry eyes.
Within 30 days Flourish Moisture Solution oral capsule supplementation significantly improved all of her patient complaints of dry eye symptoms of:
Dr. Moore also found all 12 patients taking 30 days of Flourish Moisture Solution capsules had improved clinical in-office tests of:
Dr. Moore concluded that Flourish Moisture Solution oral capsules worked better than Rx or OTC eye drops.
Flourish Moisture Solution contains a natural, proprietary formula of extremely small particle size hyaluronic acid that is easily absorbed from the gut (stomach and intestines). Most oral hyaluronic acid is synthetic and too large of a particle that limits absorption from the gut.
Choose the brand that Dr. Moore gave her patients: Flourish Moisture Solution.
The Journal of Ophthalmology published research of 54 patients in randomized control study showing the same type of results. Oral capsules containing the same active ingredient in Flourish Moisture Solution improved both dry eye symptoms and clinical doctor tests. The oral capsules worked better than dry eye drops. Study subjects saw dry eye improvement within 30 days. This confirms what I’ve known since 2008.
Even though medical research is being performed, Flourish Moisture Solution is a natural supplement that is available without a prescription.
How big are the capsules?
Each capsule is about the size of a small vitamin E capsule.
How do you take Flourish Moisture Solution?
These capsules may be a little better absorbed when taken with food. The therapeutic dosage is 6 capsules daily. You can take all 6 at once or divide the dose into 3 capsules twice daily.
How soon will I notice improvement in dry eyes?
Most people notice a gradual improvement over a month. It may take up to 2 months to see how well this supplement works.
Will Flourish Moisture Solution interact with prescription drugs.
At the time of publication there are no known interactions.
What other health issues may be impacted?
The active ingredient is made by your body and found inside the eye ball, in tears, in the skin, and in the cartilage in your joints.
