I have used this product for my dry eyes for many years. Used prescription eye drops that didn’t help much in the long run. I live in the dry desert and felt I needed to move until the balance of minerals and vitamins helped me. I will never stop taking these vitamins. I have them sent auto every 4 months.
I think this product is a good product. The shape of the pill, and I don't think it is coated with anything, so it is a little difficult for me to swallow. I do have to put oil/butter on it to make it easier to get down.
I'm in love with Co-defense. Its a God send!!!
Why include D2 instead of D3
While absorption of D3 is greater than D2, VisiVite uses D2 in its Co-Defense formula because it is 100% vegetarian and vegan. D3 is extracted from sheep's wool fat.
In the product description, it says it removes Vitamin A, C, E, Zinc and Copper. So how does it remove them? and why put some of those in your eye vitamins then take them out?
Most customers purchase eye vitamins from VisiVite.Com. When they desire to add a multivitamin, we do not include those ingredients that are already in their eye vitamin, so that they do not inadvertently ingest double those ingredients. Additionally, Co-Defense includes triple the water soluble B-vitamins found in big-name brand multivitamins.
this product is considert vegiterian or vegan?
Why not include a small amount of Vitamin A (beta-carotene), since it is not included in the AREDS2 formula?
AREDS2 found that beta-carotene interfered with the absorption and effectiveness of the two more beneficial carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin. In other words, eyes did WORSE with beta-carotene.
