Viridian Saffron Extract With Marigold provides 30mg of saffron extract with numerous health benefits.
DOESN'T SAFFRON have a beautiful colour? From a local and historical point of view saffron cake, loaf and buns originated in Cornwall, and being the world’s most expensive spice by weight, I believe the expression, “as dear as saffron,” was first used in in the county to reflect on it’s preciousness.
Saffron is such an overlooked herb. But did you know, it has powerful health benefits without the side effects associated with conventional medicine?
Saffron has been used for many centuries as a medical treatment for a variety of health conditions. It may exert a mood elevating effect by increasing levels of certain chemicals in the brain including serotonin. Studies indicate its effectiveness in alleviating the symptoms of stress, anxiety and mild depression. As a supplement it combines well with Vitamin D.
Studies indicate that saffron may be effective in relieving the symptoms of PMS. A study involving women aged 20-45 years with regular menstrual cycles and experience of PMS symptoms for at least 6 months were given 30mg saffron extract daily. A significant difference was observed in efficacy of saffron in cycles 3 and 4. The findings, according to the researchers, support the idea that saffron may affect serotonin activity, and help alleviate not only depression symptoms, but PMS as well.
Saffron Extract with Marigold may be of benefit in the maintenance of eye health due to its rich content of lutein. Scientists from the University of Sydney have found that saffron supplements may be of great value in protecting the health of the eyes from visual loss with age.
Saffron Extract may also be an invaluable aid to uncontrolled “between- meal” snacking. Scientists believe that Saffron works primarily to boost serotonin, reducing anxiety and stress central to compulsive eating. By targeting the neurochemistry at the root of compulsive eating, Saffron Extract serves as a safe, natural appetite suppressant to reduce calorific intake and with a calorie controlled diet hopefully induce weight loss.
As a food supplement, take one capsule daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
