In the quest for effective weight loss strategies,  researchers have explored various natural supplements — one such promising avenue has been the use of a novel saffron extract. Read on as we dive into a study that investigates the impact of saffron supplementation on weight loss, specifically targeting snacking reduction and satiety enhancement.

The study involved 60 healthy, mildly overweight women in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind setup. The participants were divided into two groups: one receiving saffron (176.5 mg extract per day) and the other a matching placebo. The study spanned 8 weeks, during which participants consumed one capsule of their assigned supplement twice a day.During this study, caloric intake was not restricted.

Both groups were comparable in terms of age, body weight, and snacking frequency. However, the group receiving saffron exhibited a significant reduction in body weight compared to the placebo group after eight weeks. The findings also report that saffron contributed to reduced snacking and increased a satiating effect; this is vital for individuals seeking to achieve their weight loss goals.

The therapeutic dose of saffron used in our  Warm Feelings® saffron latte (150 mg/serving) delivers stress-relieving benefits that include reduced snacking, elevated moods, and can aid with weight loss. Consider incorporating our natural saffron supplements into your routine for a convenient and holistic approach to weight management.

*No participant withdrew from the trial due to adverse effects, indicating good tolerability to saffron. This suggests that saffron is well-tolerated and safe for use in weight loss programs.
