Trace Elements, Vitamins, and Lipids and Age-Related Macular Degeneration: An Overview of the Current Concepts on Nutrients and AMD
In this chapter, we provide an overview of the current concepts on trace elements, vitamins, and lipids in their relationship to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Intake of zinc and omega-3 fatty acids can help lower the risk of AMD, particularly in people at high genetic risk. Vitamin D and nutrients influencing epigenetics appear to have a beneficial effect, but more research is needed before recommendation of these nutrients is warranted.
