PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula Supplement (210 Count)
What the results mean for you
Completed in 2013, AREDS2 was a 5-year clinical study(2) including thousands of patients, conducted by the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health. The AREDS and AREDS2 studies showed that taking a supplement with a precise formula of select vitamins and minerals can help reduce the risk of progression in people with moderate to advanced AMD. The latest study replaced beta-carotene with lutein and zeaxanthin. PreserVision AREDS 2 formula contains the updated formula now recommended by the National Eye Institute.
Can a daily multivitamin alone provide the same vision benefits as an AREDS 2 formulation?
No. The vitamins and minerals tested in the AREDS and AREDS2 trials were provided in much higher doses than what is found in multivitamins. Also, it is important to remember that most of the trial participants took multivitamins. Taking an AREDS formulation clearly provided a benefit over and above multivitamins.
