VISTA® Advanced AREDS2 Formula

As we progress through life, we witness countless sights that broaden our perspectives and color our memories. Our visual system, however, is delicate, and eyesight often starts to decline in individuals over the age of 50. Even so, not all changes are normal.

Of particular concern is age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which afflicts approximately 15 million Americans and is a leading cause of blindness. AMD comes in two forms: dry and wet. The milder dry form is more common; however, much like how high blood pressure carries health consequences overtime, so too does failing to control AMD. If left unchecked, mild symptoms can give way to the more severe wet form, which can blur, distort, and completely degrade a person’s central field of vision.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin

Two landmark NIH funded clinical studies—Age Related Eye-Disease Study (AREDS, 2001) and AREDS2 (2012)—revealed the critical role that nutrition plays in the development of AMD. These studies are notable in that they are the largest human clinical trials to evaluate the relationship between lutein and zeaxanthin to AMD. It was found that a higher intake of bioavailable lutein and zeaxanthin was associated with a reduced risk of progression from the intermediate to the advanced stages of AMD by as much as 35%.

Lutein and zeaxanthin—which are potent carotenoids primarily found in leafy green vegetables, such as kale, spinach, broccoli and collards—are thought to protect against AMD by reducing oxidative and photo-oxidative stress. Most people, however, do not get an adequate amount of lutein and zeaxanthin in their diet. For people who lack these nutrients, or who are experiencing the early stages of AMD, it is advisable to supplement with lutein and zeaxanthin.

Superior Formulation

VISTA® Advanced AREDS2 Formula was developed by leading eye physicians specifically for patients with AMD based on cutting edge, scientific discoveries. The role that nutrition plays in eye health has increasingly come into focus over the past couple of decades. We have taken key insights from peer-reviewed and accredited research to develop a superior product aimed at supporting visual functioning over a lifetime.

Every ingredient in VISTA® Advanced AREDS2 Formula serves a purpose. We included the precise ratio of 10:2 of lutein to zeaxanthin, which has been clinically shown to be ideal by the AREDS studies. Building on this solid foundation is the incorporation of the powerful antioxidants Vitamin C and E along with Selenium to increase absorption, as well as the minerals Zinc and Copper, which were part of the original AREDs formula. Our formula goes beyond by adding the reductive amino acid L-glutathione, which decreases in the eye with age. This is problematic since L-glutathione protects the eye against reactive oxygen species and helps to sustain the hydration and transparency of the cornea (lens), allowing us to properly form images on the retina and see clearly.

Maintaining optimum eyesight, particularly as we age, requires a unique matrix of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. It’s important not to overlook the critical role nutrition plays in sustaining eye health overtime. We know the value of being able to see clearly at every stage in life. That is why we have put research and care into creating evidence-based, high quality nutritional products.

AREDS2 Second Source

This supplement is somewhat cheaper than the competition. I would like an independent lab to verify the ingredients vs original AREDS2. My only negative is the the pill size is quite a bit larger than the original. When it sometimes touches the back of my throat I have a momentary panic. I don’t know why the pill needs to be so long. If the company could provide independent verification of ingredients and make the pill at least a little bit smaller I would switch to this product.

First time

Mixed. Shadow that I am used to seeing in bad eye is lighter and mostly gone. Distorted vision area is now larger than it was with little clear focus area remaining.

Too large and hard

I had gastric bypass 18 years ago. These huge red pills are too large and thick. I doubt they are absorbing. I have tried to cut them in half but they are so thick it is difficult and the gel starts to squirt out. It would be very helpful to have an alternative tablet or chew. Luckily I do not have a problem swallowing but I have friends who would never get these down. I would also like more information as to how these affect other meds and supplements. What to take them with and not take them with.
