What is saffron?

Saffron is known in many households as a spice. However, Saffron is more than that, it is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory derived from the flower of Crocus sativus. It contains 3 bioactive compounds.

 Crocin - An antioxidant with free radical scavenging activity.

Safranal – Anxiolytic and antidepressant properties.

Picrocin – The precursor of Safranal and is often missed from lower cost saffron supplements.

What are the health benefits of saffron supplements?
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Emotional balance - lower stress
  • Lower systemic inflammation
  • Improve hormonal health resulting in reduced PMS (premenstrual syndrome and menopausal symptoms)

Saffron is an anti-inflammatory and potent antioxidant reducing free radicals that cause oxidative stress on the body.

What are the best saffron supplements?

When looking for a good saffron supplement look for a concentration of 3.5% of the high strength bioactive Crocus sativus stigma and that it contains 30mg of pure saffron extract. This amount of saffron has been shown to be efficacious and side effect free. 

Check the ingredients, do your supplements contain any additives? Our Saffrosun range in free from any synthetic additives and bulking agents and made from 100% natural ingredients.

Is saffron beneficial for people with brain fog?

Saffrosun Energy is particularly beneficial for brain fog and will help to improve clarity, concentration and focus. 

What are Saffron pixie sticks and do you offer these?

Saffron pixie sticks are an alternative way to incorporate saffron into your day to day lives. Pixie sticks are straw packaging that contain powdered saffron. Our Saffrosun capsules can be twisted open and the powder mixed with food or drink in the same way.

What is the difference between Saffrosun Energy and Saffron Calm?

Saffrosun Energy contains Iodine instead of the Vitamin B12 that Saffrosun Calm contains. They both contain the same amount of Saffron extract and Vitamin D3.

What else does Saffrosun Energy contain?

Saffrosun Energy contains Saffron extract, Vitamin D3 and Iodine. Both the vitamin D3 and iodine are sourced from marine algae. These ingredients are encased in a natural tapioca shell. 

How does saffron help with menopause symptoms?

Saffron can improve menopausal symptoms by increasing the mood-boosting neurotransmitter serotonin in the gut. 

This mechanism can improve the following symptoms:

  • Hot flushes
  • Mood changes
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Nervousness
  • Fatigue
  • Night sweats
Will Saffrosun Energy help with sleep?

Saffron extract has been shown to be an effective supplement to help improve sleep quality and duration. Saffron helps to calm the mind allowing us to drift off into a deep sleep.

What's Different

Saffrosun Energy differs from Saffrosun Calm in one ingredient. As well as the all important saffron extract, the vitamin D3 and prebiotic, Saffrosun Energy contains iodine instead of vitamin B12.

The iodine is sourced from marine algae. It helps with efficient energy utilisation and metabolism and also supports optimum cognitive, thyroid and nervous system function.

95% of the clinical efficacy of Saffrosun relates to the three high strength saffron bioactives (crocin, saffranal & picrocrocin), the concentration of these are identical in the two formulations i.e. 3.5%, with the daily dose of 2 capsules providing 30mg of saffron extract. The Vitamin D3 and Baobab prebiotic contained within the tapioca capsule shell are also the same in both formulations.

As this formulation contains iodine it should not be used if taking iodine supplements and it is not suitable for those with an overactive thyroid gland. It is suitable for those with an underactive thyroid gland who may be receiving thyroxine therapy.

If you would like advice about which one of the two supplements suits you best please contact our pharmacists who will be happy to advise further.

How it works

Saffron alone can have protective effects on the nervous system. Saffrosun contains the highest strength of potent bioactives at a strength of 3.5% of all three active components (crocin, saffranal & picrocrocin) per capsule, which have been proven to improve emotional balance, reduce tiredness and fatigue, and promote restful sleep.

This formulation of Saffrosun contains naturally sourced marine algae, high in natural minerals and iodine. Iodine is an essential component in supporting efficient energy utilisation, cognitive and thyroid function and a healthy nervous system. This is sustainably harvested around the remote islands of the Scottish coast and then carefully dried and milled to ensure a high quality and nutrient rich algae.

Every batch is quality assured by our Pharmacists.

Key Ingredients

Saffrosun is created using Spanish Saffron extract with added vitamins, minerals and prebiotic. Vitamin D3 and iodine are food-sourced from Scottish marine algae and organic Baobab from the Baobab tree. We pick saffron from Catalonia in Northern Spain, which produces the highest strength of saffron (3.5%) with the three bioactives we are looking for (crocin, saffranal and picrocrocin). Catalonia enjoys the ideal temperatures and soil conditions to grow the most potent saffron in the world.
