As THE FULLEST’s Editorial Director, I consider myself very lucky to have been introduced to the healing powers of saffron. Over the past year, I’ve been able to read research articles about its ability to cast good mood spells, inhibit cancer cell growth, and (for the win) its libido-boosting effects.
Since the brand first launched the WARM FEELINGS™ Saffron Latte over a year ago, I’ve been an immediate convert and have indulged in the luxurious, golden saffron lattes several mornings per week. But truth be told, I’m still a big coffee drinker. Although I’ve loved the effects of my saffron latte, quietly I’ve been waiting with anticipation for the launch of the KINDER THOUGHTS™ capsules — and now, they’re here, and I’m like a kid in a high-end supplement store.
Introducing Kinder Thoughts™
KINDER THOUGHTS™ also comes in a different dosage and has a few additional benefits than the WARM FEELINGS™ sachets. THE FULLEST Founder Nikki Bostwick explains, “We wanted to give people an easy way to take the clinically studied daily dose of saffron (which is 30mg). For those that aren’t huge latte drinkers or are time-challenged, this is a great option to get a potent and bioavailable hit of saffron simply and quickly.”
Another twist to KINDER THOUGHTS™ is its specific focus on brain health and ability to elevate mood. If you’ve ever suffered from neurological issues from memory loss to depression, saffron can be a great support to your current mental wellbeing routine.
The unique and potent combination of saffron and turmeric is specifically formulated to keep our thoughts kinder — towards ourselves and our loved ones.
The Science Behind Saffron
If you’re looking for more research, our resident health specialist Dr. Sadeghi, shares “studies have confirmed saffron’s anti-depressant effect at 20mg and 30mg per day. Adding to saffron’s neurological benefits, a review of 14 different research studies has found it to be as effective as Aricept, the most commonly prescribed drug for Alzheimer’s disease.”
Make Self-Compassion a Daily Ritual
Apart from the fact that it’s great for my mental health and super easy to take, I love the sustainable packaging. The monthly supply of 30 capsules comes in a cute all-glass bottle. Some may say that’s superficial, but honestly, adding a pop of sunshine yellow to my kitchen counter aesthetic is its own form of color therapy — but perhaps that’s the saffron capsules talking?
