Saffron is researched due to its ability to effect food cravings and depression.This supplement is shown to to inhibit the brain’s reward cycle we get from food, therefore reducing the snacking impulse. A lot of snacking is done due to stress, anxiety or depression. Parts of the saffron plant are shown to effect serotonin (our feel-good hormone), making us want to “run and play” as opposed to “sit , eat , and sulk”. All of this is done without the sexual side-effects that come from taking antidepressants. Some studies have also shown a positive outcome with obsessive-compulsive disorder and saffron.
