Saffron is a culinary spice from the crocus flower. Studies demonstrate that saffron can increase blood flow to the retina, protect it from photo-oxidative damage, protect the light sensitive cells in the retina, improve sensitivity to light, and help restore and improve visual performance. In addition, research suggests that saffron may provide helpful support to memory. Saffron 2020 is vegetarian and manufactured at a GMP-certified facility located in Ontario, Canada.

Research indicates that Saffron protects and prevents the breakdown and cell death of light sensitive cells, called photoreceptor cells, in the center of the retina (the macula). Studies demonstrate its capacity to improve visual acuity and improve sensitivity of the retina to light in people with early stage macular degeneration. The support comes through the activity of a primary component of saffron, crocin, which is a powerful antioxidant that also support the health of the brain's synapses, hence its potential value in supporting memory.
