If you have age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and you smoke, or if you recently quit smoking, beta-carotene-free Vitalux®-S may be appropriate for you.
Vitalux®-S is identical to the Vitalux® AREDS formula, but without beta-carotene. Vitalux®-S is specifically formulated for smokers and recent ex-smokers with the AREDS ingredients shown to delay the progression of age-related macular degeneration and maintain healthy vision.
Like Vitalux® AREDS, Vitalux®-S contains:
- Vitamins C and E, plus minerals zinc and copper
- Lutein and zeaxanthin, with 10 mg of lutein per daily dose
Dosing: Take 2 caplets per day with a meal or as directed by a health care practitioner. Take a few hours before or a few hours after taking other medications. Do not crush the caplets.
