Viteyes® AREDS 2 Powder is sugar free, vegetarian and has a great orange flavor!

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 Powder is based on these findings and contains the following formula in once scoop daily:

Vitamin C - 500 mg
Vitamin E - 400 IU
Zinc - 25 mg - Lower Zinc!
Copper - 2 mg
FloraGLO® Lutein - 10 mg
OPTISHARP® Zeaxanthin - 3.5 mg
PLUS...
Daily Multivitamin

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 high doses of 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.”**

What about Beta-Carotene in a Daily Multivitamin?
The AREDS 2 study recommends omitting high doses of vitamin A (beta-carotene). However, vitamin A is still recommended as part of a daily multivitamin. Since Viteyes® AREDS 2 Powder also contains a daily multivitamin, we have lowered the vitamin A dose so it is suitable for a daily multivitamin.

 

Viteyes® AREDS 2 Powder comes in a 3 month supply canister with scoopt. To ensure and maintain the maximum level of purity and potency, Viteyes® is formulated using only the highest quality ingredients.
