"Saffron 2020 is the only supplement I'm aware of which combines saffron with important eye health nutrients"
VANCOUVER, BC, February 04, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Saffron, one of the most esteemed spices in the world, is now being used in an eye supplement approved by Health Canada and claims to be a new hope for individuals affected by age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, the two leading causes of vision impairment in Canada.
Studies have shown the retinal protective effects and vision improvement properties of saffron in patients with AMD.
Saffron 2020 is an eye supplement that combines saffron with other nutrients known to be important for eye health, and is the only saffron-containing supplement approved by Health Canada for macular degeneration and cataracts.
Doctor Kim Julian, a top eye surgeon involved in the elaboration of Saffron 2020, stated: "At the moment, there is no cure for AMD, all we can do is aim to slow down its progression and make life as manageable as possible for this suffering. Saffron 2020 is the only supplement I'm aware of which combines saffron with important eye health nutrients like resveratrol, zinc, antioxidant vitamins (A, B2, C and E) and natural carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin."
Saffron 2020 was formulated following studies in Italy and Australia showing the benefits of saffron in patients with AMD. This natural health product helps to maintain our invaluable eyesight in AMD and cataracts, and also helps to reduce the risk of developing cataracts.
The product will be showcased at the CHFA Quebec exhibition on February 6-7, 2015, and again at the CHFA West exhibition in Vancouver on April 10-12, 2015.
