Support Your Eye Health
A large research trial, called the 'Age-Related Eye Disease Study' (AREDS), showed that high quantities of the antioxidant vitamins A, C, E, beta-carotene and the minerals zinc as zinc oxide, and copper as cupric oxide, can help to slow down the progression of Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). It would be very hard to obtain the large quantity of vitamins used in the trial from your diet. Therefore people who have AMD should consider supplementation with vitamins and anti-oxidants.
A number of studies have looked specifically at the carotenoids Lutein and Zeaxanthin which have been particularly associated with healthy eyes. Some of these studies have shown how certain vitamin and mineral supplements can have a positive effect on eyes and sight.
