New Studies Show Dramatic Health And Weight Loss Benefits From Age Old Magical Spice
The spice saffron, native to Southwest Asia and originally cultivated by the Greeks, has been used for thousands of years for its many therapeutic health benefits. Could this magical spice, which comes from a flower named after Zeus's son Crocus be the k
What Is Saffron Extract?
Saffron is a spice that comes from the flower of the crocus plant, also known as Crocus sativus. The stigmas, or red thread-like parts of the flower are harvested by hand in the mornings during a two week cycle. The dried stigmas are then graded and used for a myriad of purposes from culinary use for its aromatic qualities, to industrial use as a fabric dye to medicinal use primarily for its antioxidant properties.
Gold Source Lab's Pure Saffron Extract contains concentrated amounts of the three main metabolites responsible for saffron's therapeutic properties: safranal, crocin and picrocrocin.
What Are The Benefits Of Saffron Extract?
In a recent television review on his national health show, cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Oz revealed the results of research he conducted on Saffron Extract and proclaimed it a "Miracle Appetite Suppressant". In his studies, he found that taking 88 mg of quality Saffron Extract twice daily before meals naturally increased serotonin levels in the brain, stimulating the identical pleasure receptors in the brain that eating carbohydrates stimulates. As a result, taking Saffron Extract replaces the desire for food, similar to the way strong prescription appetite suppressants do, but with virtually no side effects. Here are some of the amazing Dr. Oz Saffron Extract study results:
• Reduces compulsive eating
• Reduces emotional eating
• Reduces sugar and carbohydrate cravings
• Reduces both severity and frequency of hunger cravings
And when taken for an extended period, further studies show that Saffron Extract is effective at:
• Reducing body fat
• Boosting metabolism
• Invigorating energy
• Curbing long-term appetite
According to Gold Source Lab's CEO Mark Adams, "Dr. Oz's simple but ground-breaking research has shown that quality Saffron Extract taken consistently in the right dosage can bring amazing weight loss results." Going on to point out that Gold Source Lab's Saffron Extract contains 88.25 mg per capsule of standardized safranal, Adams adds, "And new studies show that in proper doses, safranal and crocin exhibit wound-healing and anticancer properties in mice which we're optimistic will soon be found in humans as well."
Other Health Benefits Of Saffron Extract
Saffron Extract has also been successfully used to help with a number of other ailments including clinical depression and premenstrual syndrome, and is also effective as an anti-inflammatory and in slowing the progression of certain eye diseases, such as macular degeneration and retinitis pigments.
Citing the myriad of health benefits Saffron Extract can provide, Mark Adams explains, "With saffron being one of the world's most sought after and costly spices, you'd expect Saffron Extract to cost a fortune", Adams continues, "But it's actually one of the most cost-effective health supplements on the market."
