Additional Information

Lorna Vanderhaeghe Saffron 15mg (Online Exclusive), 60 Capsules

Saffron is a natural spice used in cooking. In medicinal form, it treats depression as effectively as antidepressants. In one study, it  treated ADHD as well as ritalin.  Saffron has been used as a folk-remedy for  many years. Studies from modern medical research suggest it can prevent dementia, and macular degeneration. It also improves sexual function in women and men and may help weight loss by suppressing appetite. Saffron starts to work for depression as early as
1 week, and its benefits continue to build over the first two months.

How does it work?

Saffron promotes brain health through antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects. It also also modulates serotonin (a neurotransmitter involved in depression and anxiety).

What is saffron

Saffron comes from the crocus sativus flower — a relative of the iris. Remember learning about the petals, stamen, and pistil of a flower? People painstakingly hand-harvest the dark red filament in the pistil and dry it to make the spice saffron. Just three saffron threads come from each flower, which explains why saffron is so expensive.
 
You’ll find saffron in the spice section of your grocery store or at specialty markets. Typically, manufacturers wrap the delicate threads in dark paper or plastic before putting it in the jar to protect it from damaging light. Luckily, saffron stays fresh for years, if kept in a dark, well-sealed container.

Saffron and mood

Treating depression with medicine often leaves people frustrated and sometimes worse off than they started. There’s a lot of trial and error involved before you and your doctor find the right treatment. The effectiveness varies from person to person, but they all come with a laundry list of awful side effects that nobody wants — loss of libido, weight gain, mania, and more. Saffron might offer a natural alternative to pills, although we need more research to be sure.
 
A handful of studies look promising, though. Studies where participants supplemented with 30 mg of saffron per day and 50 mg of saffron per day both showed that saffron reduced depression and anxiety. Further trials showed that 30 mg per day is sufficient to reduce symptoms of depression including post-partum depression.
 
The antidepressant effects of saffron were compared side-by-side with commonly prescribed antidepressant medications. Researchers found that saffron is just as effective in reducing symptoms of mild to moderate depression as imipramine (Tofranil) without the dry mouth and sedation that comes with the prescription. Studies showed similar effects when comparing saffron and fluoxetine (Prozac).[10]

Saffron may relieve PMS

While you probably reach for chocolate and salt when you have your period, research shows saffron might be the better food for PMS relief. In one study, women either took 15 mg twice a day of saffron or a placebo, and filled out a daily symptom report as well as the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, a diagnostic tool for depression. The women on saffron showed reduced or eliminated both physical and emotional PMS symptoms and reduced depressive symptoms as compared to the women on placebo.
 
Researchers suspect the reason is that a lot of PMS symptoms result from disrupted serotonin at certain points in the monthly cycle, and saffron stimulates the production of serotonin.

Saffron helps your brain

Researchers have shown that crocin, the active component of saffron, keeps your brain cells young and sharp. It protects them possibly because of its antioxidant action. Snapping up free radicals keeps the immune response in working order, which protects healthy cells from attack. You want to keep as many healthy brain cells as you possibly can, for as long as you live.
 
It also reduces inflammation in the brain and inhibits certain markers of Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder.


Suggested Use
Adults take 1 capsule twice daily. For use beyond 12 weeks consult a health care practitioner.
