Strands of Sunshine

Physician Backed

The proof is in the pudding! We work closely with multiple naturopathic doctors who prescribe our saffron products to their patients.

Dr. Will Cole

"For times when I want a warm beverage during my days consulting patients, I turn to the Warm Feelings saffron latte. Not only is the blend of soothing saffron, cardamom, and coconut delicious, these ingredients provide functional benefits (which I look for in all my beverages) to help support a balanced mood, inflammation levels, reduced cravings, and more."

Dr. Sadeghi

“I had a patient who suffered from depression who had tried all the medication and treatments. Now he’s off all medication and on saffron. Saffron proved in a dramatic way that not only does it taste good, but it has the power to make us feel good, as well.”

Dr. Calvin Ng

“If more people knew about the power of saffron, we would have less emotional pain in the world. Most of my patients who I’ve recommended saffron to have reported benefits in their mood and emotional state, which ultimately helps the body heal. The mind and body are the same. When the mind experiences ease, the body eases. When the mind heals, the body heals. Saffron is a game-changer in my practice.”






How Strands of Sunshine Works

Strands of Sunshine® is saffron in its most pure, raw form. When using saffron in this form, you need just 15 threads, equivalent to 30mg, for a clinically proven mood boost, clearer complexion, and a reduction in cravings + inflammation. Consider Strands of Sunshine® the all-in-one botanical herb for your emotional, physical, and beauty practice.


We believe mental health is the foundation of wellness. As the wellness landscape evolves, our mission is to support others in utilizing saffron’s clinically backed benefits to reconnect with the body and go on to experience long-term healing.

We are a Public Benefit Corporation created with the intention of helping you live your fullest life, naturally. That’s where our saffron-based product line comes in. Saffron has been used for centuries by ancient communities as a medicinal therapy, and modern-day science has now substantiated that saffron is as effective as other leading pharmaceuticals in helping calm your nerves, elevate your mood, optimize your cognition, support your sleep cycle, and help reduce inflammation.

Daily saffron supplementation enhances mental health by modulating neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline, and supporting gut health through its anti-inflammatory properties and potential positive influence on the gut microbiome. Our Kinder Thoughts® saffron capsules and Warm Feelings®, the original saffron latte, both offer a natural way to enhance your well-being.

    Massively Beneficial for Regulating Emotions

    I used these strands to help with inflammation after a concussion, but only just began using them on my teen daughter who started having severe social anxiety a few years ago. Nothing we tried worked. I remembered I had these strands and started giving them to her daily in a tea. Within two weeks there was a HUGE turnaround. She stopped worrying about school presentations or group work (before she had huge meltdowns the night before and day of, to the point we had to ask for accommodations from the school), she stopped snapping at us for no reason, and she genuinely seems happier and is more pleasant to be around. Whether she was struggling from inflammation or depression, these worked. They brought our girl back after years of sadness, worry, and anxiety. I couldn't be happier with the result.

    One of the most effective things in helping me naturally balance my emotions/hormones. Adding 15 strands a day to a cup and letting it infuse in water all day then drinking has been a game changer!

    A Cup of Sunshine

    I started brewing tea every morning last week. I love the vibrant color and rich taste. The calming experience this tea brings starts my morning off right. I gently move into my day as opposed to my old habit of going from 0 to 60 with my coffee swigging. (I still enjoy my coffee, just much later in the day)

    I am sold on this brand - it has a lot of heart!
