OpticBiotics – AREDS 2 Formula
OpticBiotics AREDS 2 Formula contains the exact levels of six nutrients recommended by the National Eye Institute (NEI) to help reduce the risk of progression in people with moderate to advanced Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
In the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2) trial which was led by NIH’s National Eye Institute, adding DHA/EPA or lutein/ zeaxanthin to the original AREDS formulation (containing beta-carotene) had no additional overall effect on the risk of advanced AMD, compared to those who took AREDS with beta-carotene. Also, for a subgroup of participants with very low levels of lutein/ zeaxanthin in their diet, adding these supplements to the AREDS formulation helped lower their risk of advanced AMD. Also, former smokers who took AREDS with beta-carotene had a higher incidence of lung cancer. The investigators found no significant changes in the effectiveness of the formulation when they removed beta-carotene or lowered zinc.
