If you notice any problem with your eyesight, you should visit your ophthalmologist because it is much better to fix the problem in the start instead of later.
Luckily, there is a natural remedy which can help you improve your vision.
Saffron is one of the most expensive spices and comes from the dried stigma of the flower of the saffron crocus. Studies have shown that saffron could stop blindness and cure eye disease. Also, saffron supplementation improves age-related macular degeneration which can lead to partial or total blindness. This spice costs up to $800 per pound depending on its quality.
It is used in a number of ways: as a food spice, coloring agent or for treating more than 90 diseases.
Saffron is loaded with antioxidant carotenoids, crocin and crocetin, which have cellular and neuroprotective properties. Crocin found in saffron has the ability to prevent the creation of peroxidized lipids that can actually restore the superoxide dismutase activity (SOD).
Studies have shown that oral supplements of saffron (around 20 mg per day) taken in the period of three months can significantly improve your eye health. Additionally, a research conducted on patients diagnosed with early stage of age-related macular degeneration (AMD or ARMD) have been given a therapy with saffron supplements. The results have shown significant improvement in their retinal function and eyesight activity.
According to Professor Silvia Bisti taking saffron supplements is a natural way to slow down and repair the vision loss caused from macular degeneration. Regular intake of saffron supplements will lead to eye cell recovery and significant eyesight improvement.
Professor Silvia Bisti explains that saffron has the ability to directly affect the genes that are responsible for the regulation of the fatty acid content of the cell membrane, which strengthens the vision cells and makes them more resilient.
