Sleep, Mood, Saffron

Updated: Apr 1

I hear a lot of my patients struggling to get a good quality sleep.

and a lot of time, sleep problem is causing low energy during a day as well.


Find out what's causing you an insomnia.

First of all, do you know why you are suffering from not getting good quality sleep?

  • Stressful life

  • Thinking about millions of things - worry? Anxious?

  • Allergy

  • Skin condition (itchy?)

  • Fighting with Pains

  • Peri-, post-menopause

researchers also say

  • Vitamin D deficiency

  • Leaky Gut

can also cause insomnia as well.


As a Naturopath, I would like to dig out the true cause of insomnia, but also providing symptomatic relief is also a part of my job.


Safforn, Why Good?

A recent Australian study has demonstrated that a saffron extract can improve insomnia, sleep quality and restorative sleep in healthy adults with self-reported sleep problems.


And several studies have confirmed saffron to be a safe and effective natural agent for the treatment of mild-to-moderate depression.


And Saffron is said safe to be used along with antidepressants!


Other studies also showed improvements in

  • Mood

  • Anxiety

  • Stress level

  • Sleep Quality


Feeling low and not feeling refreshed in the morning, Saffron might be your superhero.
