When age-related macular degeneration happens to you, you know it right away.
The center field of your vision becomes blurry… you see “blank spots”… and the entire world around you seems to go dim.
It’s the leading cause of blindness among older Americans.
Once you’re over 60, AMD has got you in its crosshairs.
But it can start taking hold DECADES before that.
The scariest part is that you don’t need to develop AMD at all for your eyesight to wane as you age.
Your eye doc will tell you that vision loss is “normal.” And he’ll just keep prescribing thicker and thicker lenses for your glasses.
Well, hold the phone, put on your readers, and get a load of this…
You DON’T need to accept your blurry vision.
Because there’s a powerful spice that could completely change your eyes!
Are you ready to put those reading glasses DOWN… and NEVER pick them back up?
Saffron is a spice derived from the flower known as the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus).
Each purple blossom has just three red strands, or “stigmas,” right in the middle… and that’s where you get pure saffron.
The flowers only bloom for ONE DAY, making saffron one of the most EXCLUSIVE spices in the world.
Legend has it that it was preferred by 16th century Turkic kings of Central Asia.
But long before that, saffron had earned its reputation as “king of the spice world.”
Alexander the Great enthusiastically added it to his rice dishes… and his bathwater.
We don’t know exactly what saffron did for the ancient rulers and conquerors who relied on it… or the deities who accepted it as an offering in the millennia before the birth of Christ…
We DO know what it can do for YOU – and your eyes – today.
Saffron protects the eye structures in and around your retina – including the light-sensitive cells that comprise the macula.
Saffron REVERSES aging eyesight in two ways, by improving:
- sharpness of vision (a.k.a. visual acuity), helping you see two more lines on a standardized eye test than you would without it, and
- night vision, increasing your retina’s sensitivity to light.
That means you’ll be ordering off a restaurant menu even in the dimmest of lighting… getting behind the wheel of your car long after the sun goes down… and reading EVERY sign on the road.
Colors will look more vibrant than ever before… and you’ll INSTANTLY recognize faces.
You’ll even be able to see the tiniest type in your favorite book… WITHOUT squinting.
And it can take effect in as little as three months
The secret behind saffron’s ability to make eye cells “forever young” lies in the presence of the antioxidant carotenoid crocin.
Crocin – derived from a naturally occurring chemical called crocetin — is what gives saffron its golden hue and distinctive aroma.
And a 2011 study found that crocetin SLAMS the brakes on retinal damage AND dysfunction… in both a lab dish and visually impaired mice.
Fortunately, you don’t need much of this rare spice to reap its benefits. But getting pure, unadulterated saffron at the spice market can be a challenge.
You can find saffron extract in supplement form on its own or included as part of a vision support formula.
Studies have used dosages of as little as 20 milligrams.
