You can stop looking. Your search is over.
VisiVite announces the premier nutritional supplement for promoting macular and ocular health that is based on the newest, most cutting-edge research being performed by the National Eye Institute in Bethesda, , Maryland and others.

In November 2001, the National Eye Institute published a groundbreaking study, the Age Related Eye Disease Study, also called AREDS.
AREDS was the first scientific study to show that taking a specific mixture and quantity of high dose antioxidants and vitamins slowed the progression of macular degeneration.
But AREDS had 2 important limitations:
- First, the compounds Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which were hypothesized to be helpful, were not commercially available. So the scientists were forced to do without these compounds.
Second, AREDS was only able to show a slowing of macular degeneration, not an improvement in vision or retinal health.
Following the publication of AREDS, subsequent studies were published demonstrating the important benefits of Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids,
a family best known for another one of its members,
the beta-carotene form of Vitamin A.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin occur as yellow pigments in nature, such as in certain vegetables.
They not only act as light-absorbing pigments, but they also protect tissues by obliterating the toxic effects of ultra-violet radiation and oxygen.
Both Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in the macula, which is the central and most precise part of the human retina.
Compared with the Beta-carotene form of Vitamin A, which was the carotenoid used in AREDS, Lutein and Zeaxanthin have a 20 to 50 times greater ability to get into the retina and nourish the retinal tissue!
The National Eye Institute, now drowning in evidence showing the benefit of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, chose not to hide behind their old research.
Instead, they began a new study, AREDS 2, in which they added
10 mg Lutein and 2 mg Zeaxanthin to the "magic mixture."
...but they didn't stop there...
Other studies also showed that some of macular degeneration cases appeared to be a result of inflammation. And many researchers discovered that patients with macular degeneration also shared similar medical histories, especially heart disease and high levels of cholesterol.
That's why eye doctors are now recommending taking
cholesterol lowering agents
to their patients with macular degeneration!
And while you're at it, stop smoking. since it causes people to retain the heavy metal Cadmium, a recently discovered risk for macular degeneration.
To fight inflammation, the National Eye Institute tried adding a silver bullet - Omega 3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids. Surprise, surprise...they didn't add enough or the correct form, so they didn't see an effect.
But VisiVite partnered with Nordic Naturals, a world leader in Omega 3s, and added high concentration of the CORRECT form of Omega 3 that penetrates the retina and brain - the DHA form - the world's very best Omega-3 oil formulation available for eye health.
Finally, the brains at the National Eye Institute added all the things that had the greatest known benefit from their original AREDS trial, including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc and Copper.
And now you've got your "Magic Mixture" for eye health.
