AREDS 1 formula with additional nutrients for healthy eyes – without carotenoids, so safe for smokers

  • Based on AREDS 1 study
  • Contains eye-protective essential minerals and antioxidant nutrients
  • No carotenes – safe for smokers
  • Promotes healthy eye function
  • With the botanicals bilberry and grape seed extract
Ocu-Clear AREDS 1 Plus Formula for Smokers provides all of the key antioxidant nutrients of the AREDS study – but without carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and adds other key nutrients, including selenium, lipoic acid, glutathione, and vitamin B6 – thus offering a safe nutritional supplement choice for smokers who want to maintain optimal macular health.

Two large studies suggest that beta-carotene, a carotenoid antioxidant, might increase the risk of lung cancer in smokers. Consequently, it is recommended that current smokers and individuals who have habitually smoked within the past 20 years remove beta-carotene supplementation from their eye health regimen.

Key plant extracts are included to provide important support for the eye. Vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry extract) is an excellent source of anthocyanoside flavonoids, which have an affinity for the retina. In addition to antioxidant activity, these flavonoids can act to support the eye's connective tissues and blood vessels. Oligomeric proanthocyanidins in the form of grapeseed extract functions as an antioxidant and membrane stabilizer.
