For over 3000 years Saffron has been renowned for its therapeutic benefits. The extract comes from the rich orange stigma of the Crocus Sativus L. flower. Sourced from Iran where the climate and soil provide the perfect growing conditions, the saffron is harvested by family farmers, using traditional knowledge to ensure the optimum concentration of active phytonutrients.
Carefully hand-picked in the early morning before the sun becomes too strong, the stigmas are gently removed and dried. A patented extraction process then ensures the saffron actives are preserved during the gentle standardisation process.
Saffron has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for a variety of health issues. This led Pliny the Elder to describe it as a panacea in his Naturae Historiarum XXXVII. Its popularity has risen in recent times, whereby balance and health benefits are attributed to the saffron specific compounds, safranal and crocin.
