24 reviews

Don't let Macular Degeneration progress without a fight. VisiVite's AREDS 2 Select formula is based on The National Eye Institute's AREDS 2 formula, which identified key ingredients showing signs of slowing the progression of AMD. Made with FloraGLO brand lutein from marigold flowers, Omnixan brand zeaxanthin from paprika, and natural Vitamin E from plant oil. Contains no Sugar, GMO, Soy, Gluten, or Artificial Colors. Vegetarian. Quantity: 60 veg caps (1 month supply).

VisiVite's Gentle Zinc AREDS 2 eye vitamin for macular health is made with premium natural ingredients and veggie capsules.

VisiVite® AREDS 2 Select is a naturally-sourced, vegetarian, gentle-zinc AREDS 2 eye vitamin for macular health, which includes:

  • 10 mg Natural FloraGLO® Lutein from marigolds
  • 2 mg Natural OmniXan® Zeaxanthin from paprika
  • Natural Vitamin E from plant oil
  • Vcaps® Plus vegetarian capsules
  • No Sugars, GMO, soy, or gluten
  • No Artificial colors, flavors or synthetic fillers

The National Eye Institute's publication of the AREDS 2 results in May 2013 demonstrated the effectiveness of targeted high-dose nutritional supplementation in the slowing of age-related macular changes.

Specifically, the AREDS 2 research showed that:

  • The carotenoids Lutein and Zeaxanthin were 18% more effective than the original AREDS formula which contained beta-carotene.
  • The AREDS2 preferred zinc salt, zinc oxide, continued to be an important ingredient in the overall formula's success.
  • AREDS2 found NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE between lower-dose zinc and high dose zinc in the formula's success.
  • Lutein and Zeaxanthin absorption were improved when beta-carotene was removed.

VisiVite AREDS 2 Select Formula contains levels of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc and Copper, just as recommended by this latest research.

Happy & disappointed

I’ve used areds2 for 9 years for dry AMD and believe it has helped slow the progression. Disappointed: I had joined the refill program for the cheaper prices since insurance doesn’t cover them. Due to expiration of credit card and your refusal to accept my mew one, I paid full price. Product is worth it but since I’ve bought from you for so long, disappointed. EL

The condition of my retinas actually improved. Original problem was due to retinal damage to both eyes. This product is recommended by the doctors at Marion Eye Center.
