I understand that there may be a risk to taking high doses of certain
antioxidants for macular degeneration. Should I still take a multivitamin?
Yes. High levels of vitamin E supplements can be problematic, but a daily
multivitamin with only 100 percent DV for vitamin E is fine (and it will also provide
at the very least 100 percent DV for zinc and vitamin C, along with some beta-carotene).
Unless your doctor has specifically recommended specially formulated high-dose
antioxidant supplements for macular degeneration, it’s safer to get these
nutrients from food (along with a multivitamin). Try making one of my Smooth-SEE
recipes. They are both chock-full of the best nutrients for eyes and are
healthy for everyone, not just those with macular degeneration.
