What is Saffron?

Saffron, derived from the Crocus sativus flower, is one of the most valuable spices in the world, known for its unique aroma, vibrant color, and culinary value. For centuries, saffron has been valued not only as a spice but also for its potential health benefits. Historically, saffron has been used in various cultures, from the ancient Greek and Roman empires to traditional Persian and Indian medicine, as a remedy for everything from mood to digestion.

The power of saffron lies in its bioactive components such as Safranal and Crocine, which are praised for their potential therapeutic properties. These substances not only give saffron its characteristic color and scent but have also been studied for their effects on mood, mental well-being, and overall health. While Saffron has a long and respected history across various cultures, it is important to note that this does not automatically mean that its health benefits are recognized according to EU regulations.

Safranal and Crocine are two key bioactive components in saffron, valued for their impact on health and well-being. These substances are not only essential for saffron’s unique scent and color but also have a range of properties that may be beneficial for human health.

While direct health claims about saffron and its components regarding specific conditions should be approached cautiously, Safranal and Crocine are valued in traditional contexts for their positive impact on mood and emotional well-being.

It is important to emphasize that, while Safranal and Crocine have interesting and potentially beneficial properties, their exact impact and mechanisms in the body are still subjects of scientific research. Saffron supplements, like those offered by AvantVital, standardized to specific amounts of these active components, offer a way to consume these natural components in a controlled manner.

Why buy Saffron from AvantVital?

Standardized to 3% Safranal and 3.5% Crocine

AvantVital’s Saffron supplements stand out from other products due to their high quality and precision. Each capsule contains 50 mg of pure Saffron extract, carefully standardized to 3% Safranal and 3.5% Crocine. These specifications ensure that you enjoy the essence of high-quality Saffron with each use. Furthermore, we offer this supplement in a practical, resealable packaging with 120 capsules, where each capsule contains 50 mg of Saffron extract.

Suitable for vegetarians, easy to swallow & free from unhealthy additives

Saffron from AvantVital is encapsulated in vegan HPMC capsules. HPMC stands for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose and is made from cellulose. The substance is derived from wood. Cellulose is essentially an indigestible plant fiber and is recognized as such by our body. HPMC is similar to cellulose but is much more soluble and is considered safe for human consumption.

Capsules containing botanical extracts are usually size #00, length 24 mm, diameter 9 mm. There is a large group of people who find it difficult to easily swallow this capsule size. The capsules we use for Saffron are size #3, length 16 mm, diameter 6 mm. By not using unnecessary additives and spreading the reference intake doses over more capsules, we can use this easily swallowable size.

In Saffron from AvantVital, only a minimal amount of gluten-free organic rice flour and magnesium stearate are used, respectively, as a filler and anti-caking agent, to ensure a consistent dosage of Saffron extract in each capsule.

Usage & Ingredients

Although the optimal dosage of Saffron may vary depending on individual needs and the advice of a health professional, it is typically recommended in dosages of 50 mg per day. Our capsules each contain 50 mg of pure Saffron extract, standardized

to 3% Safranal and 3.5% Crocine, so we advise taking one capsule per day, depending on your personal preferences and needs. Literature indicates that amounts up to 100 mg extract per day for a short period (a few months) are safe.

It is recommended to take Saffron with food to enhance the absorption of the supplement and prevent potential stomach discomfort. Food can help with the absorption of the active components and ensure a better experience with the supplement.

The ideal time to take Saffron may vary per individual. Generally, it is advised to take this supplement in the morning or during lunchtime to enjoy the possible benefits throughout the day without affecting sleep.

Continuous use of Saffron is possible; however, as with all supplements, it can be beneficial to take a break after several months of use. This not only provides a moment to evaluate the effects but can also help maintain your body’s sensitivity to the active components.

Before you start taking Saffron, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medications, or have a medical condition, it is advised to consult a health professional. This is to exclude any negative interactions with medications or health conditions.

Pay close attention to possible side effects, such as stomach upset or allergic reactions. Although Saffron is generally well-tolerated, it is important to stop use and consult a health professional if you experience severe side effects.

Store the supplement in a cool, dry place and out of reach of children to maintain quality and prevent accidental use.

Side Effects

Known side effects of Saffron include stomach discomfort, nausea, and dizziness. These are typically mild and not everyone will experience them. However, it is important to follow recommended dosages to minimize possible side effects.

Saffron is generally considered safe, but there are situations where extra caution is advised:

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

The use of Saffron during pregnancy and breastfeeding is discouraged due to insufficient known data on safety during these periods.


When combining Saffron with other medications, especially those that affect blood pressure or mood, caution is advised. Although specific interactions between Saffron and medications are not extensively documented, it is recommended to consult with a health professional before taking Saffron if you are already on medication, to ensure safe use and avoid potential negative interactions.


It is important to note that the interaction between Saffron and antidepressants is not fully clear. If you are taking antidepressants or other medications, it is essential to discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist before starting Saffron.
