With over 150 identified compounds in the flower, this highly prized herb has widespread traditional health-related uses, from inflammation to PMS to digestive support. With so many active constituents, standardized extracts are being investigated for their therapeutic role in mood disorders, homocysteine levels, anxiety, vision and more. It is a natural support for neurotransmitters, which modulate various functions including sleep and mood. The mechanisms of action for two major components crocin and safranal are thought to be similar to prescription drugs for neurotransmitters (i.e. re-uptake inhibition of monoamines [dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin] and inhibition of the N-methyl-D-aspartic acid [NMDA] receptor). Saffron has also been found to have GABA-like effects, which assists in relieving feelings of anxiety. Saffron has been clinically proven to help manage stress while supporting mood balance, and scientific studies continue to reveal its health-related advantages.
