Who should take EyePromise AREDS 2 Plus Multi-Vitamin?
EyePromise AREDS 2 Plus Multi-Vitamin is designed for people with intermediate to advanced age-related eye health issues.
What is the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS 2)?
The Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS 2) is a five-year, multi-center, randomized trial designed to assess the effects of oral supplementation on the progression to advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in patients at high risk for developing advanced AMD.
Is it true that subjects in the AREDS study also took a multi-vitamin?
Yes. In the original AREDS study, approximately 67% of the participants took a multi vitamin while nearly 90% of AREDS 2 participants took a multi-vitamin.
What were the results of the AREDS 2 study?
1. Supplementing with the AREDS 2 formula resulted in a 10% incremental slowing of progression to advanced Age-Related Macular Degeneration
2. The reduction in progression to advanced Age-Related Macular Degeneration is even greater (26%) in study subjects with the lowest intake of Zeaxanthin and Lutein in their diet, which is more representative of the general U.S. population where the dietary intake of Zeaxanthin and Lutein is typically less than 1 mg per day.
Why is Zeaxanthin and Lutein important?
Many studies have suggested that low macular pigment is associated with a higher risk for age related eye health issues and that it can be modified via supplementation. The macula contains both lutein and Zeaxanthin and the eye preferentially accumulates Zeaxanthin in the center of the macula where the highest density of visual cells reside.
