Related Eye Disease = 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 cataracts.
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 protects the eye's lens. Vitamin E is also a potent antioxidant that protects against free radical damage.
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
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.
