A new once daily AREDS 2 supplement, made in Australia and containing the precise ingredients and total daily amounts studied in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) 2. “MDeyes contains the precise ingredients and total daily amounts studied in the AREDS 2 low zinc formula, and we’re delivering it in a once daily capsule.” Phasem’s Health Director, Philip Spork
The original AREDS formula with 80 mg of zinc cannot be registered in Australia due to regulatory restrictions around high dose zinc (the TGA maximum zinc limit for listed medicines is 50 mg per day). While some brands are ‘AREDS 2-based’, they tend to contain only half the daily dose studied in AREDS 2 and are registered and labelled as “one a day.”
Support for AREDS 2 supplements with reduced zinc dosage was voiced by many leading experts in the UK following the JAMA report last year. In Optician Online (May 2013), City University’s Professor John Lawrenson (co-author of the 2012 Cochrane review ‘Antioxidant vitamin & mineral supplements for slowing the progression of AMD’) and others advocated revising the AREDS formula by lowering zinc in addition to replacing β-carotene with Lutein + Zeaxanthin.
