EYE VITAMINS WITHOUT ZINC AND VITAMINS WITOUT ZINC
Michael Lange OD, CNS, 7/27/2013
Our knowledge of supplementing with zinc has changed dramatically over the years. Zinc in high dosages can be toxic to the body especially the urinary tract, brain, prostate and the retina. Eye vitamins without zinc today are hard to find. Multivitamins without zinc are equally hard to find on todays vitamin shelves. I personally recommend no one taking higher than 40 mg of zinc in a supplement do to the potential toxic side effects. The new AREDS 2 STUDY INDICATES THAT SUPER HIGH DOSING OF ZINC IS NOT NECESSARY FOR RETINAL HEALTH. AREDS 2 study also indicated lutein and zeaxanthin are good for macular degeneration and beta carotene is bad. So when looking for an eye vitamin make sure there is no beta carotene in it and it has at least 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin or more. A new supplement I think has some great health benefits for the eye and the overall health is astaxanthin at 6 mg. New science suggests that a certain population may want to take vitamins without zinc and eye vitamins without zinc. Fortifeye Vitamins stays abreast of the changing times and is in the process of coming out with an eye vitamin without zinc . So stay tuned to this site for more information on eye vitamins without zinc. You will be able to order your vitamins without zinc at www.fortifeye.com in the near future. So stay tuned!
