Affron® is a premium saffron ingredient standardized to 3.5% Lepticrosalides™, which is responsible for the beneficial properties and organoleptic properties of affron®. It is backed by eight human clinical studies that have shown to improve mood in healthy consumers with occasional stress and uneasiness, and to improve sleeplessness.
Affron® genuine quality relies on local trusted sourcing, the selection of the best quality species Crocus sativus L. and the exclusive and proprietary extraction process that uniquely concentrates and preserves the actives with low energy use.
28mg Affron® saffron extract (Crocus sativus L.):
First ever clinical study performed with a commercial saffron extract in healthy people.
A single dose, randomized, double blinded study was used to evaluate the bioavailability (of crocins) of two different saffron doses (56 mg and 84 mg).
affron® galenic presentation showed rapid absorption and high oral bioavailability.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (N=128) affron® intake of 28mg/day for 4 weeks, significantly improved mindset, such as tension, anger, fatigue and confusion.
affron® intake for 28 days at a dose of 14mg, twice daily was associated with greater improvements in sleep quality and restorative sleep compared to placebo.
