    “Eat saffron and you will learn to smile again!”

    Over the past 15 years, many researches and clinical trials have been conducted, confirming the efficacy of saffron extracts in the alleviation and prevention of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, establishing an interesting perspective in the field of dietary supplements. Very often insomnia and depression may occur together, making it hard to know if one is the cause for the other.

    Saffron acts on depression through a multi-target mechanism:

  • Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibition (SSRI) allows an increase in serotonin level. Mood improvement and alleviation of compulsive disorder.
  • Elevation of dopamine and glutamate levels Action-reward system and cognitive/memory enhancement.
  • Neuronal protection through antioxidant activity Gene regulation as well as immunity, as cells stimulation.
  • Recently, crocin, one of the main Active Principles of saffron, has shown positive effects on promoting Non-REM sleep cycle (Rapid Eye Movement) in mice. During its deep stages, the body strengthens the immune system and repairs itself, regrowing tissues and building bones and muscles.

    On top of that, pilot studies realized on people demonstrated that daily oral administration of crocetin, a metabolite of crocin, contributes to improve the subject's sleep quality and attenuates physical fatigue.

    A brief history of saffron

    While its use as a taste enhancing spice is quite familiar, saffron has also been used for ages as traditional medicine to treat certain physical and mental disorders (such as depression) in many Middle Eastern and Asian cultures.

    The Crocus sativus stigmas are harvested in autumn. The flowers are collected in the early mornings when they have just barely blossomed. The individual stigmas are then extracted manually.

    Once extracted, the stigmas are dried according to precise temperature and humidity conditions, favoring the appearance of certain compounds. It takes no less than 150,000 to 220,000 flowers to produce one kilogram of saffron.
