Difficulty Swallowing Capsules?

The AREDS 2 capsules are large. I know. People sometimes ask if we can make them smaller. The short answer is no. But the long answer and some options for you are below.

In their natural forms - which we use for VisiVite eye vitamins - lutein, zeaxanthin and Vitamin E oil are fluffy, sticky and bulky. But the benefits of using these naturally sourced ingredients outweigh the negatives.

If you’re one of those people who has difficulty swallowing, try “chewing” your capsules with food, such as a sandwich. Or open the capsules and put the powder in food or drink. And if you want to get the standard AREDS 2 ingredients in a tasty, chewable tablet, try a bottle of VisiVite AREDS 2 Chewable Tablets. They are the only sugar-free, vegetarian chewable AREDS 2s in the world.
