EASY TO FORMULATE
“Eat saffron and you will learn to smile again!”
Crocus 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.
While its use as a taste enhancing spice is quite familiar, saffron is also used to treat certain physical and mental disorders in many Middle Eastern and Asian cultures.
However, recent research tends to confirm the efficacy of saffron extracts in the alleviation and prevention of depression and other mood disorders, establishing an interesting perspective in the field of dietary supplements.
Saffr’Activ® has been specifically developed to comply with any application to be offered, including a liquid and powder extract.

High efficiency of Saffr'Activ to improve significantly sleeping quality
Saffron was historically used to manage depression in Persian traditional medicine. Over the past 15 years, clinical trials providing proof of the efficacy of saffron in lowering anxiety and depressive symptoms have piled up.
Saffron acts on depression through a multi-target mechanism:
Furthermore, insomnia and depression occur often together, making it hard to know if one is the cause for the other. Lately, crocin, one of the main active principle of saffron, has been demonstrated to promote non rapid eye movement sleep in mice.
During the deep stages of non rapid eye movement sleep, the body repairs and regrows tissues, builds bone and muscle, and strengthens the immune system.
Pilot studies realized on men demonstrated that daily oral administration of crocetin, a metabolite of crocin, contributes in improving the subjective quality of sleep and attenuates physical fatigue.
