Saffron Extract

The mood booster. Harnessing the historic power of Saffron

What Is Saffron Good For?
What Is Saffron Good For? Saffron has historically been used in Ayurvedic and Persian remedies with a host of benefits. Saffron has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years, for its many benefits; it is believed to be a powerful antioxidant, and has been reported to improve mood and a whole list of additional benefits.

Mood: Saffron has been nicknamed the “sunshine spice.” And that’s not just because of its red and sometimes yellow coloring. The spice is believed to have mood-boosting properties. There may be some science behind these claims, too.

Heart health: Saffron has many different chemical components. Some of these may help to reduce blood pressure and provide protection against heart disease.

PMS treatment: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) can cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms, from mood swings to physical discomforts. Some women are affected more than others. Researchers found that 15 mg of saffron twice daily is effective in relieving PMS symptoms.

Boosts memory: Promising research shows that saffron may have potential in treating diseases that affect the brain, like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Cancer prevention: Saffron is rich in both antioxidants and flavonoids. Antioxidants help protect the body from harmful substances. Flavonoids are chemicals found in plants that help the plant protect itself from fungus and disease. A 2015 review in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine found that the chemical makeup of saffron may be effective in preventing and treating several different cancers.
