The National Eye Institute's publication of the AREDS2 results in May 2013 demonstrated the effectiveness of targeted high-dose nutritional supplementation in the slowing and prevention of age-related macular changes.
Specifically, the newest research showed that:
And yet, a study published by Dr. Carl C. Awh in the professional journal, Ophthalmology, showed that when people with the genetic make-up that includes one or two complement factor H (CFH) risk alleles is present, the mineral zinc may negate the benefits of other crucial macula-supportive antioxidants. This is a particularly common scenario in patients aged 40-65 who do not yet have macular degeneration, but who have first degree relatives (father, mother, brother, sister) who have lost vision from the condition.
VisiVite AREDS2 No-Zinc White Formula contains high levels of Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E, as recommended by this latest research.
|NO EGG or its derivatives, such as yolk, egg white, egg protein isolates, albumin, etc.|
|NO MILK or its derivatives, such as whey, casein, caseinates, yogurt, cheese, butter, etc.|
|NO PEANUTS or its derivatives, such as peanut protein, oil, butter, flour, etc.|
|NO TREE NUTS such as almond, brazil nut, cashew, hazelnut, macadamia, pecan, pine nut, pistachio or walnut and its derivatives|
|NO SHELLFISH such as crustaceans and mollusks and their derivatives|

Formulated in response to requests from doctors who wanted a targeted no-zinc AREDS2 formula based on results from the latest genetic research, VisiVite created AREDS2 White Formula. Especially beneficial for people age 40-65 without macular degeneration who have relatives with this condition.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Thank you for this formula!

I am really glad that you guys listened to those of us that wanted you to make a macular degeneration supplement without zinc. I have been buying individual vitamins for the last 3 or 4 years to satisfy the AREDS requirements. I don't have MD, but I have a strong family history of it and don't want to get it. So far, so good.
