Recommendations + Product Facts

For macular degeneration supplements, there are three questions that will guide your eye vitamin choice:

1.) Do you smoke now or have you smoked habitually within the past 20 years. If you are a non-smoker, visit http://www.visivite.com/amd-non-smoker.html. If you are a smoker or former smoker, visit http://www.visivite.com/amd-smoker.html.

2.) Do you have wet macular degeneration in one eye, or is your macular degeneration progressive? If either one of these is yes, we recommend one of our Premium AREDS 2 eye vitamins.

3.) Do you take Coumadin (warfarin)? If so, we recommend that you take VisiVite E-Free Formula.

For several years, doctors have incorrectly informed their patients that macular degeneration is sporadic and not genetic. But the human genome project and new research indicates that up to 75% of macular degeneration can be explained by various genetic vulnerabilities. Additionally, Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to prevent the development of macular degeneration in healthy eyes. Therefore, we now recommend that people with high risk family histories take VisiVite Balanced Ocular Support. This supplement contains high doses of the carotenoids Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Astaxaxanthin, as well as additional premium antioxidants, and is safe for both smokers and non-smokers.

All of our vitamin supplement ingredients are U.S. based and naturally sourced whenever possible. Independent laboratory testing for purity and potency is performed on every single manufacturing lot. The VisiVite manufacturing facility is GMP Certified and meets the strictest international criteria for hygiene and security.

Absolutely! There are no ingredients that would be harmful to either. However, if you are concerned, you may want to consult with your health care professional.

Zinc, an important ingredient in both AREDS and AREDS2, was supplied as the salt, Zinc oxide. And copper, supplied in those studies as cupric oxide, is necessary to prevent a zinc-induced anemia. But are other forms of Zinc (zinc gluconate, zinc picolinate, zinc acetate, zinc sulfate, zinc oratate) better?

Although heavily marketed as having higher absorption or better effects on the body, the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplmements states that exotic-sounding and heavily marketed alternative forms of Zinc and Copper have no better absorption or bioavailability than any other.

Because zinc oxide and cupric oxide were the forms used by the National Institutes of Health AREDS and AREDS2 research, VisiVite uses these forms exclusively in its eye supplements.

Mass-marketed vitamins that are sold in pharmacies, grocery stores and discount chains are confusing to shoppers and often contain lesser quality ingredients in quantities that are not effective against eye diseases such as macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. VisiVite.Com sells only direct to consumer, via participating eye care professional offices and in select nutritional specialty stores. Educating the consumer about what makes VisiVite eye vitamins unique and helping them to find a customized solution to their eye nutrition needs is critical to the success of our products.

Beginning with the National Eye Institutes Age Related Eye Disease Study in 2001, which was the first research showing the benefit of nutritional supplements in the treatment of macular degeneration, three points were proven:

1.) Only specific ingredients had benefit against eye disease.

2.) Scientific research, rather than hundreds of opinions in the lay press, should dictate the optimal ingredients and dosages of eye vitamins.

3.) Extremely high levels of these ingredients were necessary to have an effect against eye disease.

Inexpensive mass-marketed multivitamins contain many ingredients but have no proven benefit against the progression of macular degeneration or the treatment of dry eye syndrome.
