Viteyes® AREDS 2 Plus Omega-3 is based on the findings from the AREDS 2 study plus 1,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids in 3 daily softgels.

About AREDS 2:
Completed in 2013, AREDS 2 was a 5-year nationwide study sponsored by the National Eye Institute (NEI). The AREDS 2 study was a follow up on the original AREDS study. AREDS 2 resulted in the NEI's recommendation to revise the original AREDS formula to help further slow the progression of vision loss from AMD.* Viteyes® AREDS 2 Plus Omega-3 is based on these findings and contains the following formula in 3 softgels daily:

Vitamin C - 500 mg
Vitamin E - 400 IU
Zinc - 25 mg - Lower Zinc!
Copper - 2 mg
FloraGLO® Lutein - 10 mg
OPTISHARP® Zeaxanthin - 2 mg
Plus...
Omega-3 Fish Oil - 1,000 mg

What was the reason for the AREDS 2 study?
AREDS 2 analyzed the original AREDS formula from NEI's 2001 recommendation with and without beta-carotene. This was due to the concern of an increased risk of lung cancer for smokers and former smokers taking beta-carotene. The AREDS 2 study also researched adding lutein and zeaxanthin.

What were the results of the AREDS 2 study?
Omit Beta-Carotene, Add Lutein & Zeaxanthin: AREDS 2 participants who took lutein and zeaxanthin and no beta-carotene reduced their risk of developing advanced stages of AMD by 18% compared to those in AREDS 2 who took the original AREDS supplement with beta-carotene. As a result, the NEI's AREDS 2 suggests modifying the AREDS formula by omitting beta-carotene and adding lutein and zeaxanthin.

Zinc Levels: “In the original AREDS study, the dose for zinc was set high (80 mg) because a previous small trial had found that high-dose zinc was beneficial for AMD. However, some nutritionists were concerned the dose was too high.”* The AREDS 2 study tested zinc at 80 mg and 25 mg. The results showed that when lowering zinc there was “no statistically significant effect on progression to advanced AMD.”**
