Viteyes AREDS 2 Advanced is based on the findings from the AREDS 2 study. This quality formula uses natural vitamin E, FloraGLO Lutein and OPTISHARPTM Zeaxathin. In addition, Viteyes AREDS 2 Advanced is formulated with bilberry, grape seed, selenium, alpha-lipoic acid and additional zeaxanthin. Completed in 2013, AREDS 2 was once a 5-year follow-up study by the National Eye Institute (NEI) of the original AREDS study, resulting in new recommendations for AMD. AREDS 2 Results: Disregard 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% in comparison to those in AREDS 2 who took the original AREDS supplement with beta-carotene. In consequence, 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 once set high (80 mg) because a previous small trial had found that high-dose zinc was once a good suggestion for AMD. Then again, some nutritionists were concerned the dose was once too high. The AREDS 2 study tested zinc at 80 mg and 25 mg. The results showed that when lowering zinc there was once “no statistically significant effect on progression to advanced AMD.” Viteyes AREDS 2 Advanced contains the following formula: Vitamin C 500 mg, Vitamin E 400 IU, Zinc 25 mg, Copper 2 mg, Lutein 10 mg, Zeaxanthin 3.5 mg, Selenium 100 mcg, Bilberry 20 mg, Grape Seed 25 mg, and ALA 25 mg.
