We know that you are tired of visiting your eye doctor and spending a lot of cash on some cool glasses. Maybe you have noticed that the doctors every year prescribe new glasses. You are disappointed because the eyesight theoretically should have got a really better, but in real it didn’t. Unluckily, the glasses can just help you to see better, but your glasses won’t improve the vision. Your vision will even get worse if you don’t find the root of your issue. One of the efficient ways to naturally improve the eyesight is the saffron.
Saffron is able to slow down the progression of the eye illnesses like macular degeneration that causes blindness.
The saffron spice is collected from the deep red parts of the saffron crocus, by hand, and it is worth up to $800 per one pound, depending on the quality. The saffron is used as a coloring agent, as a food spice and as a treatment for disease. About 90 diseases can be treated with this powerful spice.
It contains the antioxidant carotenoids crocetin and crocin, among the other ingredients, with strong cellular, antioxidative and neuro-protective properties. The crocin has antioxidant activity that is stronger than the alpha-tocopherol, and it is able to prevent the development of peroxidized lipids, and it can restore the SOD (superoxide dismutase) activity.
The health benefits of this spice are shown by these two carotenoids.
According to one recent clinical study, the consumption of oral supplementation of 20 mg of saffron per day, for about 3 months in those patients with age-related macular degeneration, induced an important improvement of visual activity and retinal function.
The Professor Silvia Bisti carried out the study in the patients with age – related macular degeneration, and said that patients’ vision was improved after the consumption of saffron pill. This is a hope that the saffron might be the natural solution to the problem.
The patients with macular degeneration who consumed the saffron started to experience cell recovery, and that resulted in a better vision.
The saffron affects the genes that manage the content of fatty-acid of the cell membrane, and this makes the cells of the vision more resilient and tougher, said the Professor Silvia Bisti.
But, how much of this powerful spice is recommended? Do we need it like a supplement or we can get it in the diet?
You should take 20 mg of saffron per day. Also, you can take a similar amount of the spice added to your food or maybe prepared like a tea.
