Viteyes_Logo_FINALnosloganViteyes® supplements are formulated to help protect your vision. Viteyes® AREDS 2 formulas are based on the clinically effective formula tested by the National Eye Institute (“NEI”) in its 2013 AREDS2 study.

The original Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) was a large ten-year study, completed in 2001, by the National Eye Institute. AREDS concluded that people at high risk for developing advanced stages of age-related macular degeneration lowered their risk by about 25% when treated with certain antioxidant vitamins and minerals – the AREDS formula.

In May 2013, AREDS researchers completed the AREDS2 study. AREDS2 analyzed the original AREDS formula 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. AREDS2 also researched adding lutein and zeaxanthin. The subset of participants that took lutein and zeaxanthin and no beta-carotene reduced their risk of developing advanced stages of AMD by an additional 18% compared to the original AREDS formula. As a result, the NEI’s AREDS2 recommendation suggests omitting beta-carotene and adding lutein and zeaxanthin.

The AREDS2 study also tested lowering the dose of zinc. “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.”*

Viteyes® offers a range of AREDS 2 formulas based on the recommendations by NEI. Viteyes® AREDS 2 formulations include Viteyes® AREDS 2 Capsules, Viteyes® AREDS 2 Softgels, Viteyes® AREDS 2 Plus Omega-3, Viteyes® AREDS 2 Advanced, and  Viteyes® AREDS 2 Powder (for people who have trouble swallowing pills).

Viteyes® also offers other supplements to maintain eye health, such as Viteyes® Omega-3 Enteric Coated, Viteyes® Essentials (lutein and zeaxanthin), Viteyes® Optic Nerve Support, Viteyes® Dry Eye, and two comprehensive multivitamins Viteyes® Complete, and Viteyes® Multivitamin AREDS 2 Companion.
