VisiVite® AREDS Lutein+ Eye Vitamin Formula

13 reviews

Based on the Original 2001 AREDS formula, but substitutes 10 mg lutein in place of beta-carotene. Contains No Sugar, GMO, Soy, Gluten, or Artificial Colors. Vegetarian. Quantity: 60 gel caps (1 month supply)

An AREDS lutein eye vitamin for smokers, with no beta carotene.

The National Eye Institute's Age Related Eye Disease Study, published in 2001, showed that high potency nutritional supplementation slowed the progression of macular degeneration. However, this formula included the precursor form of Vitamin A, known as beta-carotene, which was shown in two large studies to increase the risk to smokers

VisiVite AREDS Lutein+ Formula includes four out of five of the ingredients in the National Eye Institute vitamin supplement formula but makes one important substitution. Rather than using the carotenoid, beta carotene, VisiVite AREDS Lutein+ Macular Degeneration Formula uses 10 mg lutein derived from marigold flowers.

Unlike AREDS, which used 180 mg of Vitamin E in the synthetic DL form, VisiVite AREDS Lutein+ contains 268mg Natural Vitamin E from plant oil in the D form. May be opened into food or drink for patients that have difficulty swallowing.

Lutein (FloraGLO Brand) 10 mg

    We’ve been using visi vite for years after a dr recommend them for my husbands macular degeneration which had been recently diagnosed. His eye exam last year showed that it had not increased since he began the regimen over 10 years ago.

    Love these vitamins!

    Macular Degeneration is very prevalent in my family. I was in my 50's when I was diagnosed with the start of macular degeneration. I am now in my late 60's and the degeneration remains the same as it was at diagnosis due to taking Visivite Areds + lutein Formula vitamins daily. My ophthalmologist is impressed with this vitamin!
