Saffron Extract was recently recommended by Dr. Oz as a great appetite suppressant. Saffron extract differs from other supplements in that it not only helps suppress one’s appetite, but is a natural way to lose weight safely with no side effects.
Saffron Extract comes from a flower called Crocus Sativus which is primarily grown in Spain on family farms. This flower blooms in the fall and produces beautiful flowers that are light purple in color. Saffron is typically used as a spice for foods, and is said to be one of the most expensive spices in the world because only a small part of the plant can be used. Beyond its use as a flavorful spice, saffron is a very effective supplement that promotes satiety (a state or condition of feeling full), curb cravings, and is a great source of essential vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, niacin, and riboflavin, and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, selenium, and zinc to promote optimal health.
A 2010 randomized, controlled study showed that crocus sativus extract helped reduce unhealthy snacking and promote weight loss in mildly overweight women over eight weeks.
Ayurvedic medicine and animal studies have shown that some active ingredients in Saffron may have wonderful medicinal applications. Safranal, the volatile oil found in the spice, has been scientifically shown in animal models to have antioxidant, anti-cancer activity, anti-convulsant and anti-depressant properties.
Saffron Extract is taken by mouth twice daily, and the dosage depends on what the person is taking it for. For appetite control, users are directed to take two capsules daily 30 minutes before meals. For depression, users are recommended to take 30 mg twice daily. For those who have menstrual discomfort, recommended use is 500 mg three times daily. For all weight loss goals, Saffron extract should be combined with a balanced diet and exercise plan.
