PreserVision AREDS 2 soft gels contains the 6 exact ingredients found to be beneficial in the newly-published AREDS2 research from the National Eye Institute. This new formula subsitutes lutein and zeaxanthin for beta-carotene, which was found in AREDS 2 to be beneficial over the original AREDS formula.
In comparison with the original version, PreserVision gelcaps only require one capsule twice daily. Preservision duplicates the ingredients found to be successful in the AREDS research. The ingredients include Synthetic rather than Natural Vitamin E.
These soft gels contain Omega-3 (150 mg) and Lutein (6 mg), nutrients important to the health of the macula, the part of the eye responsible for central vision. In comparison with most macular degeneration formulas, this formula contains much less Zinc and Vitamin E, substances that were important in the success of the AREDS trial performed by the National Eye Institute.
