Why doesn’t EyePromise Restore contain copper?
The original AREDS formula contains a high level of zinc (80mg zinc oxide). At this zinc level, copper must be added to a supplement formulation to minimize the risk of copper deficient anemia, as high levels of zinc deplete copper. This is the reason copper was added to the original AREDS formulation. The AREDS II formulation contains a reduced zinc level of 25mg because of the original AREDS study findings. EyePromise Restore contains only 15mg of zinc per softgel to mitigate these concerns and is safe to take with a multi-vitamin containing zinc. The recommended upper daily level of zinc is 40mg.
