Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the elderly, affecting an estimated 20% of individuals older than 65. With few effective treatments and currently no cure, prevention is vital.
Many studies suggest that antioxidants, particularly the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, may help to reduce the risk of degenerative eye diseases such as cataracts and AMD. The carotenoids proposedly reduce the risk of AMD by absorbing blue light that could damage the macula, preventing free radicals from damaging eye cells and strengthening eye cell membranes.

– Vitamin C, that contributes to the regeneration of the reduced form of Vitamin E.
