Before you buy an AREDS 2 Vitamin, Read This:
VisiVite AREDS 2 PLUS+ Gold Formula uses each of the five ingredients in the Age Related Eye Disease Study, but makes the following important therapeutic 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 AREDS 2 PLUS+ Gold Formula has less than a 0.1% incidence of side effects that result in having to discontinue the supplement.
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.
4.75 mg of OmniXan brand Zeaxanthin, derived naturally from paprika, the "super carotenoid," is added, resulting in improvement in retinal pigmentation, powerful protection against further damage from ultraviolet light, and finally, for its powerful antioxidant properties.
Additional antioxidants that prevent further oxidative stress and damage to the retina are added, including Bilberry, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Selenium, Grape Seed Extract and L-glutathione.
Unlike other popular manufactures that use the less expensive synthetic dl-Alpha Vitamin E that has only 50% bioavailability, VisiVite formulas use naturally derived d-Alpha Vitamin E with 100% bioavailability.
Take one capsule twice daily. Capsules may be opened into food or drink for patients that have difficulty swallowing. UPC # 899205000300
VisiVite AREDS 2 PLUS+ Gold Formula has no beta-carotene, and therefore may be taken by smokers and former smokers.
