Healthy aging nutrition

Vision

With age, increased exposure to screens and an unbalanced diet, vision problems become more acute. The role of nutrients in eye health is often overlooked. However, many active nutrients contained in food can act directly on sight by protecting the eyes from internal and external aggressions, such as blue light-induced damage for example. Associated with a healthy lifestyle, a supplement formula combining premium ingredients for eye health can help take care of eyesight.

saffron extract

Crocus sativus L.

Saffron’s benefits for eye health have been known since ancient times. The Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, the oldest known medicinal treaty, mentions saffron as a remedy to treat eye disorders. In Iranian traditional medicine, saffron is known to strengthen eyesight.

Benefits

Saffron appears to improve visual acuity in adults with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and protect against free radical damages that occur in AMD. Saffron also alleviates hypertension in the eye, which is responsible for glaucoma. The antioxidant and hypotensive powers of saffron are mainly attributed to crocin.

Clinical evidences

Five clinical studies have reported saffron’s benefits for vision. Saffron stigma extracts, orally supplemented at 20 mg/day, improved retinal sensitivity in subjects with AMD. Benefits were obtained after 3, 11, and 14 months, highlighting long-term effects. At a daily dose of 30 mg, saffron also provides ocular hypotensive effects in subjects affected by glaucoma.

100% of subjects reported an improvement in their quality of vision, especially contrast and color perception

Vitis vinifera L.

Epidemiological studies have shown that elderly people who regularly consume diets rich in antioxidants such as anthocyanins are less likely to be affected by AMD. Grape skin, a traditional source of anthocyanins, has antioxidant properties that reduce photooxidative processes and reduce retinal pigment epithelium cell damage.
