MDeyes delivers the complete AREDS 2 proven low zinc formula,including the specific quality ingredients FloraGLO Lutein and OPTISHARP Zeaxanthin,in a convenient once daily capsule.
Different eye health supplements can play a role in slowing the progression of macular degeneration as found in the AREDS 2 studies and trials
The AREDS 2 formulation still had vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and copper, without the contentious beta-carotene, and had doses of lutein, zeaxanthin, omega-3 fatty acids to reduce the cancer association, but with lower zinc oxide.
Whist Beta-carotene is important for the eyes because it creates vitamin A, which helps the eyes detect light signals.it has been linked to cancer, especially in smokers.
While a well-balanced diet is important for overall health, particular nutrients are needed for macular health.
Whilst some lutein and zeaxanthin are found in green leafy vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids are mainly found in oily fish they often do not match the improved AREDS 2 formulation.
