Saffron is commonly known as the world’s most expensive spice due to the high amount of labor needed to produce the spice from the plant itself.
Using Saffron in food will have the same effects as supplementation, but it can be very difficult to get the dose right when using it this way so its typically recommended to use a standardized extract instead. Double Wood’s Saffron is a standardized extract with a 0.3% Safranal content.
As a supplement for mood improvement, take 1 capsule per day on an empty stomach. For appetite control, take 1-2 capsules per day on an empty stomach. It is strongly recommended not to exceed 2 capsules per day as Saffron can cause adverse side effects at high doses.
Its generally recommended to cycle Saffron, meaning it should not be used for longer than 8 weeks straight and its recommended to take 2 weeks off after using it daily for 8 weeks.
Saffron Extract Side Effects
When taken at recommended doses Saffron is typically well tolerated, although mild side effects such as dry mouth, dizziness, drowsiness, and headaches can occur.
More severe side effects are possible at high doses, which is why we strongly recommend not to exceed a 2 capsule per day dosages. Nausea and Vomitting are common side effects of using Saffron at high doses, but more severe side effects such as bloody diarrhea, numbness, and bleeding.
