What is Saffron Extract produced in 3W Botanical Extract Inc.?
Saffron is a plant. The dried stigmas (thread-like parts of the flower) are used to make saffron spice. It can take 75,000 saffron blossoms to produce a single pound of saffron spice. Saffron is largely cultivated and harvested by hand. Due to the amount of labor involved in harvesting, saffron is considered one of the world's most expensive spices. The stigmas are also used to make medicine.
Saffron is used for asthma, cough, whooping cough (pertussis), and to loosen phlegm (as an expectorant). It is also used for sleep problems (insomnia), cancer, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), intestinal gas (flatulence), depression, Alzheimer’s disease, fright, shock, spitting up blood (hemoptysis), pain, heartburn, and dry skin.
Saffron extract helps to naturally increase your serotonin levels. So not only will you feel much better and have a much more positive mood, but saffron extract will also help your body manage your cravings. Instead of reaching for snack foods that are loaded in calories, sugars, and fat, saffron extract helps you make healthy food decisions.
