There are certain things that happen as we get older. Aging can increase a person’s risk of developing diseases and it can cause a person to lose basic functions, for example, eyesight. Eyesight is usually the first sense that gets affected by the aging process, unless you blow your hearing by attending a lot of loud concerts.
The eyes have been referred to as the windows to the soul, which stands to reason, considering they allow us to see all that happens in the world. When vision starts to go, people tend to resort to contact lenses or eyeglasses, but they cheat the eye instead of addressing the underlying problem. You don’t have to accept decreased vision.
Sometimes vision loss is natural and other times it can be attributed to macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of irreversible blindness. Roughly 10 million Americans are affected by the disease, which can be contracted via lack of carotenoids in the diet, genetics, or smoking cigarettes. Recent studies have shown that there is one ingredient that may be able to help reverse the effects of vision loss and macular degeneration.
This magical ingredient is saffron. It is often used as a spice in Indian cuisine, but rarely is it used to stop age-related eyesight degradation. New studies have shown that it has properties that improve visual acuity and sensitivity of the retina to light. This helps protect light-sensitive cells that are located in the center of the retina.
Don’t give up on your eyesight and resort to glasses. You can make your eyes healthy again by consuming the following herbal remedy every single day for two weeks straight. In addition to this herbal remedy, it is beneficial to eat foods with lots of carotenoids. Carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, citrus fruit, and berries all contribute to healthy eyesight.

- 1 cup water
- Boil the water in a pot and add the saffron once it is boiling. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes and then remove from the heat. All the mixture to cool a little before straining it.
- If the taste is too powerful, you can add a little raw agave syrup to sweeten it. Drink this tea every night before going to bed for two weeks and you’ll start to see the difference, literally.
