Struggling with fatigue and energy throughout the day can put a damper on productivity and mood. There are numerous factors that can affect energy levels, from not getting enough sleep to eating the wrong foods, aging, and other lifestyle choices. Yet, what if you could give yourself a feel-good lift in the morning and afternoon without the crash and side effects of coffee or sweets?
The use of saffron in our delicious elixirs is a breakthrough in the field of wellness. Saffron provides incredible health benefits, including a boost of natural energy. Legendary for its unique qualities, saffron is one of the best natural energy boosters you can find. The world’s most coveted spice for it’s taste, intoxicating aroma, and medicinal properties, saffron is one of a kind in the health and wellness sector.
Saffron comes from the red stigmas of the flowers of the Crocus Sativus plant, which only bloom for 3-4 days each year. To add to the rareness of the bloom, each flower produces only three stigmas, which are hand-harvested and crushed to create the yellow spice we know and love.
Boost Vitality and Mood Naturally with Saffron
Saffron is truly one of the best ways to increase energy and regulate mood. With a unique blend of vitamins and carotenoids, it can provide a natural energy boost and an overall lift to your mood. To demonstrate this point, multiple research studies were conducted with patients suffering from mild to moderate clinical depression. The results showed that saffron was more effective than a placebo and just as effective as an antidepressant like imipramine and fluoxetine. In addition, saffron does not have the risky side effects of antidepressants.
Saffron’s B Vitamins Promote Energy Production
Saffron is rich in folates, also known as B vitamins, which are natural concentration enhancers. They are necessary for building and repairing cells and tissues and regulating mood. Folates are also key players in energy production. So, if you have a B-vitamin deficiency, you will likely feel sluggish and potentially suffer from increased anxiety and depression.
While B vitamins are not stimulants, they are needed to convert food into energy in the cells, known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). B vitamins are known to contribute to better mental health, promoting a positive mindset. They support overall brain function, including boosting memory. In addition, the B vitamins are also necessary to recycle glutathione, which is essential for energy in the body.
The Importance of Glutathione, the “Master Antioxidant”
Saffron is vitamin B-rich to help boost glutathione levels, but it’s also naturally packed with this powerful antioxidant. Glutathione is an all-natural antioxidant created and stored in the cells of plants, animals, and other living organisms. Glutathione is made up of three essential amino acids: glutamic acid, glycine, and cysteine. To reach optimal health, we need this tripeptide to take care of each and every cell, both protecting the cell and repairing any damage.
In addition, glutathione fights off free radicals in the body, which can lead to chronic inflammation and numerous illnesses including cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. It is also responsible for detoxifying the liver and blood, healing and brightening the skin, and providing a boost to the immune system. Finally, glutathione can support Nitric Oxide production when combined with L-citrulline, which increases circulation and allows vital nutrients to flow freely through the body.
By helping the body become healthier at a cellular level, saffron provides an overall energy boost. You will naturally feel better and more lively after drinking a Safforia elixir.
Reap the Other Benefits of Saffron
Saffron is one of the best natural energy boosters, but what else can it do? In addition to the natural energy boost we receive from taking saffron daily, there are numerous other natural benefits that make you feel your best.
As was already mentioned, saffron naturally fights oxidative stress. Many people also take saffron as a natural way of losing weight as it suppresses appetite. Or, if you suffer from digestive issues or PMS cramps, saffron can do a world of good. Saffron can also increase serotonin naturally, boosting your mood. There’s truly no end to its benefits.
