Use Vision Essence Zinc Free vitamin supplements if you’ve not performed the VitaRisk genetic test following diagnosis of macular degeneration (AMD). Without this simple cheek swab, about 1 in 6 taking AREDS supplements will accelerate their progression to advanced AMD. Only after it’s determined zinc may be beneficial should one consider an AREDS type supplement with 25mg zinc. The higher 80mg zinc dose found in widely available brands has proven toxic– avoid these.
Vision Essence Zinc Free3 +MZ helps maintain eyesight and improve vision in the face of high-risk macular degeneration (AMD). A better alternative to the ‘AREDS’ drug-store eye vitamins, it contains no zinc, which is found either helpful or harmful, depending on one’s DNA. In addition to 500 mg vitamin C and 400 IU natural vitamin E are 22 mg of solvent-free macular protective pigments- that’s 10 mg lutein, 2 mg zeaxanthin, and 10 mg meso-zeaxanthin.
Vision Essence Zinc Free3 +MZ is designed for high risk, category 3 macular degeneration patients. For early stage AMD – consider Vison Essence Early Defence instead. Take this formula if you’ve not performed the VitaRisk genetic test, or if your results indicate zinc may be harmful.
