Natural fertility is real and should be a concern for all of us — whether you’re male or female. 

If you’re trying to conceive, nervous that your clock is ticking, or just seeking ways to improve your overall fertility health, there are natural and effective ways to support your body. Studies now support that regular saffron consumption could aid with increased fertility.

We rounded up a hearty list of analytical reports that support these claims, along with daily rituals that are sure to assist with your fertility journey.

Saffron: Reproductive Health & Fertility

For thousands of years, saffron has been known as an  aphrodisiac, but today’s research shows that it’s good for much more than just getting us in the mood. A lot of it has to do with the antioxidants and carotenoids it contains, like crocin and crocetin. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals in the body, preventing cellular damage. This can be particularly important for reproductive health, as oxidative stress has been linked to infertility.

Saffron’s powerful antioxidant properties prevent free radicals from damaging our cells. This includes sperm cells. When a  group of infertile men took 50mg of saffron three times per week, it significantly reduced their number of damaged sperm cells and increased their motility or speed of movement.

Furthemore, among the many side effects of antidepressants is the disappearance of libido and diminished sexual response. A group of women taking Prozac for depression who complained of sexual problems were asked to take daily saffron capsules.  Results showed the women experienced substantial improvement in arousal, lubrication, and other markers that made up their Female Sexual Function Index score.

Saffron has been traditionally used to regulate menstrual cycles. Regular and healthy menstrual cycles are crucial for female fertility. By promoting a balanced hormonal environment, saffron may support fertility in women.

Consuming Saffron for Fertility Support

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, boosting libido means strengthening and nourishing a kidney yin/yang balance by warming the core, supporting the adrenals, and promoting blood circulation through the entire body. One of the many ways to do this is by eating well-sourced whole foods that are warming to the system. Saffron is a warming spice that can address this imbalance.

The proof is in the pudding! If you’re looking to add some spice to your life, we offer the following saffron options that may be worth incorporating into your daily routine for optimal fertility support:

Warm Feelings™ saffron latte: 150mg of bioavailable saffron mixed in a bed of creamy organic coconut milk powder. Enjoy morning, night, or around the clock.

Kinder Thoughts™ saffron capsules: For those that fancy a pill, Kinder Thoughts™ offers 30mg of Affron® (a pharmaceutical grade of saffron) in each capsule. Take daily.

While these studies provide some insights, it's essential to approach the topic with caution. It's always advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before using saffron or any supplement for fertility purposes. Individual health conditions, medications, and other factors can influence how the body responds to such interventions.
