AREDS 2 Results

The AREDS2 results were published May 5, 2013 by the National Eye Institute. VisiVite offers four different AREDS2 formulas below. Our best-selling AREDS2 Formula is VisiVite AREDS2 Plus+ Formula. The publication of these results can be found here:



  1. A modified AREDS Formula with both Lutein and Zeaxanthin, but without beta-carotene, was 18% more effective than AREDS1.
  2. Lutein and Zeaxanthin absorption was improved when beta-carotene was removed from the formula.
  3. Beta carotene was again proven to increase lung cancer in former smokers.
  4. No significant decrease in benefit was found with 25 mg daily Zinc versus 80 mg.
  5. Omega 3s were NOT found to be beneficial in Grade 3 and 4 macular degeneration patients.

Men are especially advised to take a supplement such as VisiVite AREDS2 Plus+ Formula that contains selenium 200 mcg, because the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial showed a reduced risk of developing prostate cancer when taking 400 IU of daily Vitamin E:

VisiVite AREDS2 Plus+ Formula contains high levels of both Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc and Copper, just as recommended by this latest research. Compared with AREDS2, VisiVite AREDS2 Plus+ Formula contains 50% more Lutein and 138% more Zeaxanthin.
