What is Saffron Extract?
Saffron is a plant, and when it blooms, the dried stigmas from the plant are extracted by hand and used to create saffron “spice.” Saffron is a sought after spice not only for cooking, but for its multiple health benefits, like treating depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and symptoms associated with a woman’s menstrual cycle. Recently, studies have proven that saffron is effective for weight loss. Studies and tests have shown that saffron can help increase your serotonin levels, which regulate your mood, and help prevent you from overeating. Our all natural, safe, and effective Saffron Extract can help suppress your appetite and reduce your cravings. It can help you lose the extra weight! When you consider it takes 75,000 blossoms to make one pound of saffron and the process is mostly done by hand, you can see why this is one of the most expensive and sought after spices in the world for cooking and for health benefits like weight loss.

CUSTOMER QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q: How long has saffron been used as a medicinal herb?
A: The use of saffron as a medicine goes back to Ancient Egyptian and Roman times. It was documented in a 7th-century BC Assyrian botanical reference. Saffron was valued as a medicinal herb treating at least 90 illness prior to being desired as a food spice and dye. It is said that Alexander the Great used saffron in infusions and bathed in the herb to help heal battle wounds. A trip to Wikipedia’s saffron page will give you some pretty amazing tidbits about saffron’s use as a dye in prehistoric art and for the robes of Buddhist monks, its use in ancient textiles, medicinal uses, and how Cleopatra used it as an aphrodisiac. Saffron has a long and well-documented history!
Q: What is saffron made up of?
A: Saffron comes from the stigma of a flower and its content is made up of:
- Crocin: powerful antioxidant that is also a natural appetite suppressant. Studies have shown various activities such as anti-depressant, anti-cancer, anti-fatigue, memory improvement and aphrodisiac.
- Anthocyanin: antioxidant flavinoids with many benefits including atherosclerosis fighters. Studies have found they have anti-inflammatory properties, protect collagen, may prevent blood vessel damage and improve eyesight.
- Alpha- and beta-carotene: Alpha-carotene and beta-carotene (carotenoids) are important because they have the ability to convert to vitamin A in the body. This is important for normal function, immune system function and vision.
- Zeaxanthin: this powerful antioxidant is well-documented to help improve vision, prevent cataracts and slow macular degeneration. Important for healthy eyes.
- Thiamine: also known as vitamin B1 typically found in nuts, yeast, meat, beans and some cereal grains. Thiamine is used for fighting stress, positive mood, cognitive function, increasing energy, eye health, athletic performance, digestive problems, inflammation, boosting the immune system, helping to prevent kidney disease in diabetics, diabetic pain, heart disease, alcoholism and aging.
- Riboflavin: also known as vitamin B2, riboflavin plays a key role in energy metabolism, and the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.
- Crocetin: an important carotenoid with many health benefits. Helps boost energy, relieve stress and anxiety, detoxify, boost immunity, lower lipids, helps with asthma and acts as a decongestant, aids in psoriasis relief and may help lower blood pressure.
- Picrocrocin: Naturally satiates and makes you feel fuller so you eat less.
- Safrana: Natural appetite suppressant.
Q: Is the capsule easy to swallow?
A: Yes, ours is an easy to swallow supplement.
Q: Does saffron help you lose weight?
A: Studies show that saffron extract can help you lose weight. Crocetin, Pcrocrocin and Safrana are three powerful components of saffron that naturally reduce your appetite. People report feeling fuller faster and for a longer period of time which helps prevent overeating and snacking. Saffron also increases serotonin levels making you feel relaxed without drowsiness and sleep better. This helps fight emotional eating and fat that can accumulate from the stress hormone and lack of sleep. Saffron also aids in weight loss by regulating the metabolism and increasing energy. Basically, it’s an over-achieving weight loss supplement.
Q: Does saffron ease depression?
A: The symptoms people with depression experience are many of the same symptoms saffron has been used to treat for thousands of years! This includes low energy or feelings of fatigue, poor mood, insomnia, loss of interest and weight gain.
It is estimated that over 19 million people in America, mostly women, suffer from depression. Depression can also develop in people suffering from conditions like Alzheimer’s, auto-immune diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus, Parkinson’s, hormonal disorders, heart disease, or from being a Cubs fan. Just making sure you’re paying attention.
Medications for anti-depressants typically increase the level of serotonin in the brain, elevating the mood. While that will help people feel better, unfortunately, anti-depressant medications have their own side effects ranging from anxiety to sexual dysfunction to weight gain. Not to mention they are hard to ween off of! They truly are. That’s why more people look for natural depression remedies. Saffron is one of those natural alternatives because, like medications, it increases the level of serotonin in the brain and improves mood.
One study took 38 people suffering from depression. Half received fluoxetine (generic Prozac), the other half got saffron. At various intervals before, during and after the six week period, they were tested using the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression. This is the same oral test your doctor would give to see if you suffered from depression. The study found each group’s depression symptoms greatly improved with no difference between the groups. That’s pretty amazing. The advantage for the saffron group, aside from taking a natural supplement to treat depression instead of a pharmaceutical drug, was the lack of side effects like sexual dysfunction and tremors.
So, yes, studies have shown that saffron as a treatment for depression may be effective in mild to moderate cases.
Q: Why do people take saffron for insomnia?
A: Saffron had mild sedative properties. It is a non-drowsy supplement, but it is said to help people get a restful sleep and wake up feeling good. Studies show that sleep disturbances typically lead to weight gain and an increase of the stress hormone. Getting a good night’s rest, on a regular basis, is another way saffron aids in weight loss.
Q: Can saffron improve my complexion?

A: Properties in saffron help menstrual cramps and PMS discomfort.
Q: Is saffron good for mood?

Q: Is saffron safe?
A: Saffron has been used for thousands of years in food and as an herbal medicine for weight loss, PMS, depression, asthma and other conditions. Doses of up to 1.5 grams (g) per day are considered safe. Our research has shown that 176.50 milligrams (mg) per day is an effective dose of saffron for weight loss and health benefits. This will help you get the results you want, while staying far from levels that will cause side effects like diarrhea and drowsiness. Much higher levels, in the 20+ gram range can be fatal. We want you to be safe whether you use our brand or another’s so please always check the dosage and pay particular attention to whether it’s listed as milligrams or grams. Remember, 1,000 milligrams (mg) equals 1 gram (g). Saffron should always be used in a safe manner. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose.
Q: Saffron for Alzheimer’s?
A: Promising research shows that some saffron extracts are helpful in treating Alzheimer’s disease.

Q: Is safflower the same as saffron?
A: No. Safflower, sometimes called Portuguese saffron, is a less expensive substitute for saffron spice and does not have the same benefits.
Q: Will saffron extract stain my teeth?
A: Not at all. The pill is white.
Q: Can I cook with this?
A: No, silly. This is an extract for use as a dietary supplement, not as a cooking spice.
Q: Can I put this in my tea?
A: We don’t recommend it. Tea contains tannis which may reduce the effectiveness of components of saffron, such as thiamine.
Q: How can saffron help reduce daily calorie intake?
A: One of the many advantages to saffron for weight loss is it contains three carotenoids that naturally suppress the appetite. This can reduce your appetite and make you feel fuller faster when you do eat. By getting rid of the need to snack, or emotionally eat, you can control your meals and calories consumed.

Q: Does consuming saffron make you laugh?
