Co-Defense® is a multivitamin uniquely formulated for patients who take macular degeneration supplements based upon the National Eye Institute's Age Related Eye Disease Study. Co-Defense removes Vitamin A, C, E, Zinc and Copper - nutrients that already exist in high amounts in VisiVite and other macular degeneration supplements.
