In 2013, the National Eye Institute completed its landmark AREDS 2 study. This 5-year study showed that omitting beta-carotene from the AREDS formula and replacing it with 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin, can reduce the risk of progressing to advanced AMD by up to 18 percent.
In response, we have taken beta-carotene out of our Viteyes® AREDS Advanced formula to follow these latest research recommendations. Viteyes® AREDS Advanced is now Viteyes® AREDS 2 Advanced.
Viteyes® AREDS 2 Advanced contains no beta-carotene (safe for smokers/former smokers), 10 mg lutein, 3.5 mg zeaxanthin and reduced zinc to 25 mg – a combination based on the latest extensive AREDS 2 findings. Plus,Viteyes® AREDS 2 Advanced continues to be formulated wtih bilberry, grapeseed extract and alpha-lipoic acid.
Your eye health is important to us, which is why we remain committed to offering you the best possible supplements. Compare Viteyes® AREDS 2 Advanced to Viteyes® AREDS Advanced Formula.
