Good source of carotenoid antioxidants
Why is Macula Saffron good for you?
Saffron is a spice made from the flower of Crocus sativus. Its characteristic taste and aroma come from the antioxidants Picrocrocin and Safranal. Its colour is due to the antioxidant carotenoid Crocin.
Carotenoids, like Lutein and Zeaxanthin, are important components of the macula. They are not synthesised by the body and must be obtained from the diet. These carotenoids are strong antioxidants and are selectively taken up by the macula where they absorb up to 90% of blue light.
INGREDIENTS: Active ingredients (per capsule): Crocus sativus (Saffron) 20mg, Tagetes erecta (Marigold) powder (Lutein 10mg; Zeaxanthin 2mg).
Other ingredients: gelatin, cellulose, calcium hydrogen phosphate.
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 1 serve (capsule) per day.
Store in a cool, dry place. Saffron antioxidants are a food supplement and can only be of benefit if you have a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
