AREDS Lutein Plus+ Eye Vitamin for Smokers

NOW WITH 10 mg LUTEIN - 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. Therefore, it is widely considered by ophthalmologists, optometrists and other physicians to be unsafe for smokers and former habitual smokers to take the National Eye Institute formula.

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. Additionally, unlike other manufactures that use artificial dl-Alpha Vitamin E, VisiVite uses naturally derived d-Alpha Vitamin E. Take twice daily. May be opened into food or drink for patients that have difficulty swallowing.

Smokers are advised not to take high doses of beta-carotene. This formula replaces beta-carotene with the more desirable carotenoid, lutein, in a cost-effective twice-daily gelatin capsule format. No artificial colors or synthetic ingredients.

Note: 10 mg Lutein contains approximately 500 mcg zeaxanthin.
