I was diagnosed with macular degeneration in my left eye 18 years ago from diabetes. Pictures of my retina show no change after that time period as the product arrested further development of the disease. I also take Macuguard as it has nutrients for eye health that Areds does not.
I began taking this since I have been informed that I have the beginnings of macular age. I have been taking for about a year with no aftereffects despite the fact that I've perused that certain individuals can't endure the measure of zinc in this item. Obviously, I can't determine whether it's having any valuable impact yet it's superior to sitting idle. I'm a little confounded with regards to certain analysts expressing that this is pricey and that you can purchase the fixings independently at a less expensive cost. Truly? I'm paying $22.00 for a jug of 120 delicate gels that keeps going me two months. That is 36 pennies each day. I think if you somehow managed to purchase Vitamins C and E, Zinc and Lutein independently, you would be paying significantly more. Additionally, you'd need to take more pills. For what reason do that when all that you really want is here. Simply my perspective
Despite being the best research-supported product in its field and the increasing numbers of people afflicted by macular degeneration, Bausch & Lomb's Preservision AREDS 2 Formula is not readily available in the UK. So I rely on iHerb for my supply of this #1 supplement for eye health. I cannot fault either the product or iHerb; excellent product, excellent service, and fast international delivery.
This was recommended by my brother's doctor as he has the beginnings of macular degeneration. He replaced his regular multivitamins w/ this taking 2 a day. When he returned to his doctor a few months later, he saw that there was already an improvement and for him to continue w/ this product. What better recommendation is there than that!
I was recently diagnosed with mild AMD. I researched abt AMD on various medical website n found that AREDS may help slow the progression or improve. So I took the risk to try as some review also mention tad bit of benefit. The only thing I did not like is the Vit E (dl-alpha tocopherol)which is a sunthetic Vit E. Hope they can change to d-alpha tocopheral, a natural Vit E, the one with 'd' Not 'dl'.
Product is great and shipped in a timely manner.
The soft gels are slightly sticky when placed in the daily pill box I use as it is somewhat exposed to moisture in the air.
The price is not as attractive as i was used to, but still cheaper than buying it locally here in Israel.
Very pleased with this product. It came highly recommended by friends and 2 eye doctors. Easy to swallow. Contains the supplement needed for eye health plus some other supplements that have been recommended. Will continue to order it for myself and my husband...
This supplement is recommended by the nurse in polyclinics, to my Dad whose vision is declining. Easy to eat. The nurse said it has improved vision for some of the elderly. Bought this for my In-laws too
