Saffron as a spice has been around for years and most Saffron comes from Spain, Europe, and South West Asia.
New studies show that when you ingest around 80 mgs or so... twice a day of Saffron Extract... it increases neuropeptides that increases serotonin and that leads to increases feelings of happiness and contentment. It contains satiereal which helps with anxiety and cravings... and thus you don’t eat as much (and most people eat because of anxiety) and there is a great side effect... you also feel better... and your mood is better in general.
And people are losing between 3 to 5 pounds in 3 days.--Amazing!
Studies show that satiereal which is the main ingredient in most Saffron extract can lower cravings and hunger by over 80%. -- Wow!
Other new studies show that Saffron Extract is also great for depression. In these studies it was found that Saffron Extract worked just as well as all the anti depression medications on the market. -- Great!
Even more studies show that Saffron Extract works great for PMS and helping with all the related symptoms. And in men it has been used to prevent premature ejaculation and as a libido enhancing agent.
And Saffron has been used to treat asthma, heartburn, insomnia, coughs, and even for hardening of the arteries. It also helps in the production of hormones that are anti-inflammatory agents and helps with the pain of arthritis and joint disease. Plus as an added benefit you have more energy... and Saffron also contains crocin that’s a great cancer preventative... and a wonderful antioxidant that helps prevent degenerative diseases.
And in more studies Saffron was shown to improve memory and cognitive abilities and also help prevent macular degeneration.
And Saffron Extract may be of benefit to those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia.
Most of all Saffron Extract is all natural and is very safe. Plus Saffron in general is one of the best spices I have ever used... great for seafood.
