STUDY HIGHLIGHTS:

  1. A modified AREDS Formula with both Lutein and Zeaxanthin, but without beta-carotene, was 18% more effective than AREDS1.
  2. Lutein and Zeaxanthin absorption was improved when beta-carotene was removed from the formula.
  3. Beta carotene was again proven to increase lung cancer in former smokers.
  4. No significant decrease in benefit was found with 25 mg Zinc versus 80 mg.
  5. Standard Omega 3s with predominantly EPA were not found to be beneficial in Grade 3 and 4 macular degeneration patients.
