Saffron (Crocus sativus) is the world’s most expensive spice. Native to southwest Asia, it was first cultivated in Greece and is now grown in many countries worldwide. It is also referred to as saffron crocus.
Each Saffron flower contains three vivid crimson stigmas. When harvested and dried, the stigmas are used as a seasoning and coloring agent; and Saffron has a long medicinal history as part of traditional healing.
Saffron contains more than 150 volatile and aroma-yielding compounds, along with many nonvolatile active components. Picrocrocin, a bitter glucoside, is responsible for saffron’s flavour. Safranal, a volatile oil, gives saffron much of its distinctive aroma.
Research indicates a positive role for Saffron extracts containing safranal as an effective intervention for stress and anxiety.
Recent research has validated that Saffron has the capacity to boost serotonin, a neurotransmitter. Scientists believe by boosting serotonin levels, it helps reduce the depression, anxiety, and stress that are often associated with compulsive eating.
Saffron operates at the neurochemical level to help provoke satiety (less hunger and a feeling of fullness).
Clinical studies have demonstrated that saffron extract reduces uncontrolled “between-meal” snacking, which leads to reduced calorie intake and helps induce weight loss.
