MONTREAL, Sept. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on studies lutein, saffron, resveratrol and antioxidant vitamins are known to help maintain eye health, especially in those affected by age-related eye conditions. A unique combination of these important eye health nutrients is now being used in an eye supplement approved by Health Canada and claimed to be a new hope for individuals affected by age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, the two leading causes of vision impairment. The product is also being touted as the supplement for individuals who want a natural health product to help maintain or improve their vision.
Studies have shown the retinal protective effects and vision improvement properties of saffron, lutein and resveratrol in patients with AMD.
Saffron 2020 is the only saffron-containing supplement approved by Health Canada for macular degeneration and cataracts. Saffron 2020 was formulated following studies in Italy and Australia showing the benefits of saffron in patients with AMD. Based on these studies …saffron activates mechanisms of self-defense and self-repair in the retina of the eye protecting it against oxidative damage. The product is formulated in convenient once-daily vegetarian capsules.
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 natural carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidant vitamins (A, B2, C and E), resveratrol and zinc."
Our bodies cannot make lutein and zeaxanthin, so we need to get the right amounts from foods and supplements. Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in a variety of foods, including kale, spinach, collard greens and egg yolks. These two nutrients accumulate in the center of the retina, where they protect sensitive eye cells from the damaging effect of incoming light.
Saffron 2020 is a patent pending product provided by Groupe Persavita, a company located in Montreal, Canada. Saffron 2020 contains potent antioxidant and cell-protective nutrients that are believed to protect cells from damage caused by oxidative stress.

Saffron 2020 will be showcased at the CHFA East 2015 exhibition in Toronto on September 19th and 20th, 2015.
