Age-Related Eye Disease = AREDS
AREDS: Eye Supplements Reduce Risk of Macular Degeneration
The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) was a major eye nutrition study
conducted in the 1990s and sponsored by the National Eye Institute (NEI),
one of the federal government's National Institutes of Health.
The AREDS (Study) was designed to:
Investigate the natural history and risk factors of age-related macular
degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
Evaluate the effect of high doses of antioxidants and zinc on the
progression of AMD and cataracts.
Results from the AREDS showed that a combination of high levels of
antioxidant vitamins A, C and E (in combination with the mineral zinc)
significantly reduces the risk of advanced macular degeneration and its
associated vision loss.
A diet containing plenty of fruits and vegetables can help you enjoy a
lifetime of good vision.
The doses used in the study were:
Vitamin C - 250 mg
Vitamin E - 400 IU
Vitamin A (as beta-carotene) - 15 mg
Zinc (as zinc oxide) - 80 mg
Copper (as cupric oxide) - 2 mg
Although these same nutrients had no significant effect on the development
or progression of cataracts in the AREDS, more recent research suggests the
development of cataracts is associated with oxidative changes in the eye
and antioxidant eye supplements may indeed help reduce the risk of
The discovery that bilberry significantly improved the night vision of
British pilots in World War II sparked the interest of the medical
community. This led to numerous clinical studies that revealed the active
ingredient in bilberry fruit, anthocyanosides, helped enhance eye health
and vision as well as circulation disorders. Europeans have long used the
bilberry extract to reduce capillary fragility
According to a study published in the April 2004 edition of Optometry: The
Journal of the American Optometric Association, the lutein antioxidant
supplementation trial (LAST) concluded that visual function of study
participants with symptoms of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD)
improved with the intake of lutein alone or lutein together with other
nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
Vitamin C is one of the main antioxidants that protect the eye's lens.
Vitamin E is also a potent antioxidant that protects against free radical
One of the most important ingredients in any worthy eye support formula is
lutein. Many already know about the great benefits of this carotenoid, but
others are excitedly discovering it for the first time. Found in leafy,
green vegetables like lettuce, broccoli, and collard greens (as well as egg
yolks), experts agree that it may play a significant role in the prevention
of macular degeneration of the eyes, as well as the prevention of
cataracts. But lutein doesn’t stop at the eyes; other studies suggest that
it can provide numerous benefits to our skin and act as a potent
antioxidant. We feel that diets and supplements rich in antioxidants play
an important and crucial role in proper health and nutrition.
So many wonderful things are said about bilberry. Also known as
huckleberry, this fruit has been used to treat a number of ailments all
throughout history. Even with the countless breakthroughs in Modern
Medicine, bilberry remains a stellar go-to herbal extract. This is due to
the way it has helped its users improve their vision clarity. We've heard
the legend of the WWII pilots eating jam made from bilberries to improve
their vision as they flew in the sky. While some say this is only legend,
we may want to remember that some of the most important parts of our
culture have been founded on tradition and people who, contrary to Modern
Thought, knew a thing or two about how things work.
