    SAFFRON

    Saffron is a spice coming from the stigmas of Crocus sativus flowers, a small perennial plant cultivated in Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and Spain was widely used as a herbal sedative. The main components of saffron are crocin (natural carotenoid) responsible for the color of saffron, picrocrocin the cause for bitterness and safranal gives a distinct taste and aroma. Affron® is a unique standardized stigmas extract from saffron to bear 3.5% Lepticrosalides® (three carotenoids).

  • Scientific evidence
    HOW DOES SAFFRON EXTRACT AFFRON® CONTRIBUTE TO A HEALTHY MOOD?

    Several human studies have found that saffron is effective in treating mild to moderate depression symptoms as a result of an interaction with the serotonin and noradrenaline system.1

    In one study, 128 healthy adults self-reporting a low mood completed specific questionnaires at the beginning (baseline) and end of a four-week trial while being supplemented with affron®, a standardized saffron extract or placebo. The results indicated a decreased negative mood and symptoms related to stress and anxiety for the group of participants taking affron® compared to baseline and placebo intake, while sleep quality was not improved.2

    The pooled data in a meta-analysis conducted on nine clinical trials confirms the effectiveness of saffron on the severity of depression, being more effective than placebo and equivalent to antidepressant drugs.3 Saffron extract may be a natural alternative to conventional treatment for signs and symptoms of depression and may support overall mood in healthy adults.

What is Saffron?

Saffron is a spice made from the dried stigmas of saffron flowers.

Saffron

What is Saffron used for?

In ancient times, saffron was considered the most valuable and rare spice. This is not surprising considering 150,000 flowers must be collected to obtain 1 kg (2.2 lb.) of saffron. 

The process of drying (coal oven at about 50°C/122°F) and then sorting the stigmas to separate the reds from the yellows (the yellows have no value) has remained unchanged for centuries. 

The Greeks employed it to dye their finest fabrics a deep red, as well as in their traditional cooking. Saffron was used to enhance their dishes, but also added to certain liquors and drinks such as tea.

Therapeutic use: the benefits

Saffron has been used as a medicinal herb for almost 5,000 years. Written traces of it can be found among the ancient Egyptians (Ebers papyrus 1550 BC), in China (collection of the emperor Chen Nong 2700 BC), in Minoan Greece (notably on frescoes), as well as in the writings of numerous Roman authors.

Saffron has been used to fight against various health conditions throughout antiquity. The Latin quote, "confortare crocus dicatur laetificando et partes lascas firmare, hepare reparando," can be translated as "saffron comforts, excites joy, strengthens any viscera, and repairs the liver." 

Also recognized by the Persians for its benefits on depression, saffron is now scientifically documented for its effect on mood regulation and concentration.

Saffron is a spice made from the dried stigmas of saffron flowers. Although it was long thought to come from Kashmir at the foot of the Himalayas, a British study has just shown that its origin is Greek. 

As a result, of numerous crosses of the domestic plant (Crocus cartwrightianus) and the selection of the flowers with the largest stigmas, a mutant form (Crocus sativus) appeared in Crete at the end of the Bronze Age. This is the saffron we know today.

Saffron has its own hieroglyphic in ancient Egyptian and is mentioned in papyrus dealings with medicine in the second millennium BC. Imported to Asia in the 7th century BC by the Phoenicians, it was first cultivated in Europe in southern Gaul, when the Romans extended their influence over the continent. 

Saffron has played an important role in the culture of many civilizations throughout antiquity as a culinary condiment, dye, perfume and medicinal herb and continues to do so today. It has always been considered the most expensive spice in the world and is now grown all over the world.

Helpful

It helped me improve my mood after a stressful day. I also tried to use it when I was encountering some PMS and I must say it helped me counteract the mood swing and improve my concentration on what I was doing.
