ST. LOUIS, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ZeaVision®, the parent company of EyePromise eye vitamins, introduces two new AREDS 2 formulas, EyePromise AREDS 2 Plus Zinc-Free and EyePromise AREDS 2 Plus with a Multi-Vitamin. Recent research indicates that some may achieve better vision protection by taking an eye vitamin that does not contain zinc, thus the reason EyePromise brings a science-based, zinc-free AREDS 2 formulation to market. Approximately 90 percent of AREDS 2 clinical study participants consumed a daily multi-vitamin along with their eye vitamin. ZeaVision's new EyePromise AREDS 2 Plus with a Multi-Vitamin facilitates convenient and consistent daily use.
EyePromise AREDS 2 Plus formulas are designed for patient types studied in the National Eye Institute AREDS 2 clinical trial, containing the same dietary ingredients – plus other essential nutrients, including 10 milligrams of dietary Zeaxanthin, as well as Vitamin D3, Omega-3's, and other science-supported ingredients to promote ocular health.
The AREDS 2 clinical research study demonstrated that participants with the lowest intake of dietary Zeaxanthin and Lutein achieved an amazing 26 percent risk reduction of progression to advanced Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). The average daily intake of these important nutrients in the American diet is only one to two milligrams, far short of the amount studied in the AREDS 2 trial (12 mg's/day) and not nearly enough to provide retina protection. Daily supplementation of dietary Zeaxanthin and Lutein slowed progression to advanced AMD in all AREDS 2 study participants supplemented by an additional 10 percent over the original AREDS 1 formula alone. Both EyePromise AREDS 2 formulas contain dietary Zeaxanthin and Lutein, with the highest available dose of dietary Zeaxanthin of any eye vitamin in the market.
Additionally, this doctor-recommended vitamin is formulated to improve visual performance and increase Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD). Low macular pigment has been documented in numerous clinical research studies as an important risk factor for AMD, the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over the age of 55. EyePromise is the only brand supported by a money-back MPOD increase guarantee.
