Do you find yourself hungry in between meals? Do you find the urge for sweet or savory snacks too strong to resist, especially when you find yourself in an emotionally charged moment?
These two factors are some of the biggest contributors in weight gain, and some of the most difficult to tackle, especially when you have a busy life.
To make matters worse, stress and poor food choices due to your busy lifestyle can create a self perpetuating vicious cycle of which can affect your hormones, lowering your serotonin production, which can lead to even more cravings, emotional eating, depression and anxiety.
The key to breaking this catch 22 is to tackle emotional eating and snacking head on.
Saffron extract recently hit the media due to impressive clinical study results which showed an 84% decrease of appetite as well as a decrease in their food intake as a result of taking saffron extract daily1.
Our Saffron supplement is 100% natural, and made from Crocus Sativus extract.
Each easy to swallow capsule provides 100mg of pure Saffron extract (200mg per day).
How does Saffron Extract and Serotonin production work?
When you have a craving and you consume sweet or savory snacks your brain releases a chain of feel good hormones, which provides a sensation of satisfaction and relief (albeit short term, until the next bite).
This mechanism can make snacking very addictive, and make it very difficult to stick to a diet.
According to the studies, Saffron extract seems to work on the same pathways, providing a feeling of satiety, and helping make cravings more manageable.
As a result, participants in the study were able to say “no” to their cravings, reduce their food intake as well as lose weight compared to the placebo group.
