We believe strongly in the healing power of antioxidants, specifically in how they can help maintain and improve eye health.
You may have heard about a 2007 analysis of data related to antioxidants that said taking antioxidant supplements increases one’s mortality risk. A new analysis of available data shows that the previous study published in Journal of the American Medical Association that said the caused a 16% increase in mortality was incorrect.
In fact, 36% of the trials showed a positive outcome or that the antioxidant supplements were beneficial, 60% showed antioxidants had no effect, and only 4% published a negative outcome.
The new study says that those with nutritional deficiencies will benefit most from antioxidant supplements. Also, too much of a good thing can just be a waste of money – there appears to be a threshold above which additional supplement intake has no effect.
