People who have problems with their vision and they wear glasses go for a regular check-up every year with the hope that their vision is improved. They always get dissapointed. Glasses maybe help you see better, but in fact they don’t improve your vision at all. If you are one of those people, you don’t have to worry anymore since there are some natural remedies that will help you treat the root of the problem. Saffron is the right solution for this kind of problem.
Saffron might save your eyesight
Saffron is derived from the red stamens of the saffron crocus, and can be sold for as much as $800 per pound. This amazing spice can be used as a coloring agent or as a natural treatment for over 90 diseases. Moreover it can reduce the progression of macular degeneration. If not treated, this condition can lead to blindness.
This amazing spice contains cartenoids called crocin anc crocetin. It also poseses cellular, neuroprotective and antioxidant properties. The crocin found in the spice has better antioxidant activity than alpha-tocopherol and can prevent the formation of perioxidized lipids while restoring the superoxide dismutase activity. These two cartenoids are responsible for all the health benefits of saffron.
People who suffer from age-related macular degeneration should definitely use saffron since according to some studies, taking its supplement on a daily basis for three months will considerably improve retinal function and visual activity.
All the health benefits of saffron can be attributed to these two carotenoids. According to professor Silvia Bisti, taking saffron pill will improve patient’s eyesight which proves that this spice can be a future cure for macular degeneration. “Saffron appears to affect genes that regulate the fatty-acid content of the cell membrane, and this makes the vision cells tougher and more resilient,” she says.
How much saffron do we need?
People who suffer from eye related diseases should take 20mg on a daily basis in order to treat their problem effectively. They can take it as tea or added to meals as a spice.
