Formulated in response to requests from doctors who wanted an AREDS2 formula but with less than 80 mg of daily zinc, VisiVite created AREDS2 Select Formula. Made with 40 mg rather than 80 mg of zinc oxide for reduced gastrointestinal upset and better tolerability. And according to the AREDS2 research from the National Eye Institute, there was NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE between high zinc and low zinc formulas in their success in supporting the health of the retina in age related macular degeneration.
