For over 3000 years Saffron has been renowned for its therapeutic benefits.
The extract comes from the rich orange stigma of the Crocus Sativus L. flower. Sourced from the Middle East where the climate and soil provide the perfect growing conditions, the Saffron is harvested by family farmers, using traditional knowledge to ensure the optimum concentration of active metabolites.
Carefully hand-picked in the early morning before the sun becomes too strong, the stigmas are gently removed and dried. A patented extraction process then ensures the saffron metabolites are preserved and standardises the actives.
Known to support emotional balance, Saffron extract has been clinically researched to support mood as well as other areas. Saffron contributes to emotional balance, helps support relaxation and helps maintain a positive mood.
