What is Saffron extract powder?

Saffron is a spice derived from the flower Crocus sativus and has traditionally been used to flavor food. It has gained scientific attention recently for its potential anti-depressant effects and is available in extract form as a dietary supplement.Saffron extract is extracted from the stigma of saffron pistil.

Saffron contains chemicals that might alter mood, kill cancer cells, decrease swelling, and act like antioxidants. It can take 75,000 saffron blossoms to produce a single pound of saffron spice. Saffron is largely cultivated in Iran and harvested by hand. It’s one of the world’s most expensive spices.

People commonly use saffron for depression, anxiety, Alzheimer disease, menstrual cramps, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses.

Saffron extract benefits

  • Rich in antioxidants

Oxidative stress occurs when there is an excess of free radicals in the body. It damages cells and contributes to aging as well as to medical conditions like diabetes, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Saffron is rich in antioxidants, which help neutralize free radicals and counteract their harmful effects on the body. Notable antioxidants in this spice are crocin, crocetin and safranal. These antioxidants may be especially protective for your brain and nervous system, helping to improve mood, memory and learning ability and protecting the brain from damage.

  • May help elevate mood and treat depression

Some of the most compelling research on saffron has been in the treatment of moderate depression. Studies have shown various extracts of saffron to be safe and effective for boosting mood, with the additional benefit of calming feelings of anxiety, with minimal side effects. Studies have found that use of saffron extract is associated with improved mood test scores relative to placebo.

  • May protect against cognitive dysfunction

Saffron has neuroprotective effects and can be beneficial for brain health. It could have potential as an additional aid in treating neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease without the side effects of traditional medications.

Additionally, saffron may help fight chronic stress-induced cognitive dysfunction by protecting nerve cells against free radical damage, reducing neurodegeneration, and preventing the accumulation of beta-amyloid protein in the brain.

  • May help reduce snacking and support weight loss

Saffron may affect neurotransmitter signals to help reduce snacking and curb your appetite. It can help promote satiety so that you don’t get the urge to snack, thus supporting healthy weight management.

In an 8-week trial of mildly overweight healthy women, those taking saffron snacked less frequently and lost significantly more weight compared to the placebo group.

  • May have cancer-fighting properties

Saffron’s antioxidants help neutralize the damage from harmful free radicals and protect against oxidative stress, which damages cells and contributes to diseases such as cancer. The antioxidants in saffron may help selectively target and suppress cancer cells, particularly with colon cancer, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. However, more studies are needed on the cancer-fighting effects of saffron.

  • May help treat symptoms of PMS

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) refers to a range of physical and emotional symptoms that women may experience in the days leading up to the start of a menstrual period. It is estimated that as many as three out of four women have experienced some form of PMS, which includes pelvic pain, skin break outs, tender breasts, mood swings, irritability, depression and food cravings.

  • May help improve sleep

Poor sleep quality is known to have significant negative effects on health. Saffron may help improve sleep quality in healthy adults. A randomized controlled trial of 63 adults with self-reported poor sleep associated saffron with improvements in sleep quality compared with placebo. Another study of adults with mild to moderate sleep disorder associated with anxiety found similar effects. Those taking saffron extract had improved ease of getting to sleep, improved duration and quality of sleep compared with placebo.

What is the ingredient in saffron extract?

Saffron extract is composed of at least four main active ingredients which include crocin, crocetin, picrocrocin and safranal. Crocin is a carotenoid responsible for saffron’s red color.

Are there any side effects to taking saffron extract?

Using saffron supplements in the short-term seems safe for most people. They may cause side effects like anxiety, appetite changes, upset stomach, sleepiness, and headache. Using saffron in high doses or for long periods of time may be risky. Some people are also allergic to saffron.
