Question:
Does saffron really improve vision or prevent age-related macular degeneration?

Answer:
Saffron, derived from the crocus flower (Crocus sativus) is added as an ingredient in some vision supplements. Several small studies suggest saffron may be beneficial in the early stages of age-related macular degeneration.
