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.”

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.

Why THE FULLEST

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 norepinephrine, 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.

CLINICALLY RESEARCHED

The use of saffron in treating depressed patients can be effective... representing a suitable and safer alternative to Fluoxetine (Prozac). In another study, saffron and Imipramine were used for depressed patients and compared. Results showed that saffron improved the symptoms of the patients in a comparable way to Imipramine (Tofranil).

    Saffron is a delicate but potent kitchen treasure. I infuse saffron threads in hot spring water overnight and sip them throughout the day. I love to cure farm eggs in a brine of rice vinegar and saffron with white peppercorn and laurel leaf to keep in the fridge for a quick anytime protein. I infuse bone broths and stocks with saffron, and I make fresh saffron pasta or risotto on special occasions. It's incredibly elegant, and the scent is intoxicating. Cooking with saffron is a ceremony in and of itself.

    I have used other brands of saffron, but these are by far the most potent & medicinal threads I have found on the market. I know these threads are well sourced because I can LITERALLY feel it, I am instantly happier when I use them! I like to add them to my nightly tea. I also like how transparent The Fullest is about the sourcing — I know my money is going back to a good deed.

    I love buying my saffron threads from The Fullest instead of the grocery store like I used to. The packaging is so beautiful and is such a great price!
