  • The AREDS & AREDS2 Clinical Trials
     
    The findings for the Age-Related Disease Study (AREDS) were released in October, 2001. The AREDS clinical trial has been heralded by doctors and nutrition experts as the most significant clinical trial on nutrition and macular health. Findings of the 6 ½ year AREDS clinical trial, published in the October 2001 issue of Archives of Ophthalmology, demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in the rate of progression of AMD in 3,640 patients taking a supplement containing vitamins, antioxidants and zinc.

    The AREDS2 clinical trial, published in May, 2013, examined whether additional nutrients or formula modifications could further increase the effectiveness of the original AREDS formula. Based on the results of this study, the National Eye Institute is now recommending a macular health formulation with lutein and zeaxanthin, and without beta-carotene. Read more about the AREDS2 clinical trial.

"I began taking MacularProtect Complete AREDS2 about a year ago. I had just been diagnosed with macular degeneration and wanted to do whatever I could to at least slow down the process and protect my eyesight. The retinologist recommended this product to me and I have taken it faithfully since then. I feel it has been a big help as my eyesight seems to be about the same as it was a year ago. In the past, my eyesight was getting a little worse every year.

Thank you for making such a wonderful product!"

- B. Lessard,
Montclair, CA


"I have used Macular Protect Complete regularly for several years as recommended by my ophthalmologist. I had been undergoing frequent prescription changes for several years. I replaced my regular daily vitamin supplement with MacularProtect Complete and my eyeglass prescription has now been stable for a couple of years. "

K. Ellis,
Saint Joseph, IL


"I began taking MacularProtect Complete more than four years ago at the recommendation of my ophthalmologist. In that period of time, there has been no appreciable change in my vision. That's not bad for an 89-year old!"
