VisiVite i-Defense Red Formula has been reformulated, improved and renamed.

The new name is VisiVite AREDS2 Select Formula, and you can find out about your trusted eye vitamin formula by clicking HERE.

VisiVite AREDS2 Select contains 10 mg and 2 mg Zeaxanthin. The formula is now made using vegetarian capsules and contains NO artificial colors or synthetic ingredients. If you order the item on this page, your order will be automatically be upgraded to receive VisiVite AREDS2 Select Formula.

The Lutein Antioxidant Supplementation Trial (LAST) proved that when the antioxidants used the the Age Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) were combined with 10 mg or more of Lutein, that vision improved in a significant number of patients.

Finally, the issue of beta-carotene needed to be addressed for smokers and former habitual smokers. Although this precursor form of Vitamin A, which has excellent anti-oxidant properties is safe in non-smokers, two large population based studies demonstrated that beta-carotene increases the chances of acquiring lung cancer only in smokers or people with previous habitual smoking histories.

VisiVite i-Defense Red Macular Degeneration Formula utilizes the important information from each of these groundbreaking studies.

VisiVite i-Defense Red Formula is designed for smokers and former habitual smokers, and thus does not use beta-carotene. It then uses the remaining ingredients in the Age Related Eye Disease Study, and makes the following important improvements:

Zinc is reduced from 80 mg to 40 mg daily, to reduce the urinary tract and gastrointestinal side effects experienced by 6% of the patients in the study. As a result, VisiVite i-Defense Red Formula has less than a 0.1% incidence of side effects that result in having to discontinue the supplement. The National Eye Institute has also seen the merit in this measure and will be doing the same in the AREDS2 trial.

15 mg of FloraGLO brand Lutein, derived naturally from Marigold Flowers, is added, based upon the results of the Lutein Antioxidant Supplementation Trial which showed vision improvement in people that had macular degeneration. This is the highest quality Lutein available in any macular degeneration nutritional formula, and is 50% more than the Lutein being used in the upcoming AREDS2 trial.

Unlike other manufactures that use synthetic dl-Alpha Vitamin E, VisiVite uses naturally derived d-Alpha Vitamin E. Natural Vitamin E is not only safer, it also has twice as much antioxidant power as Synthetic Vitamin E, because all of the molecules are in "right-handed" biologic orientation.

Take one capsule twice daily. Capsules may be opened into food or drink for patients that have difficulty swallowing.

Question: Can VisiVite Red formula be taken in yogurt?<br /> Answer: All VisiVite formula capsules, with the exception of Dry Eye Relief softgels, may be opened and their powdered contents put into any food or drink.<br /><br />Question: Is this the formula tha absolute best for a Macular Degeneration diagnois for a person who also smokes and is 81 years young?<br /> Answer: VisiVite Red Formula is excellent. However, VisiVite Green has high dose antioxidants and 4.75 mg of the potent carotenoid, Zeaxanthin, that are not found in VisiVite Red. VisiVite Green Formula is also our best-seller among smokers and former smokers. <br /><br />
