Today, I came across this article citing Saffron as “one of those rare, versatile ingredients that can be utilized to fulfill a range of mood related needs, if dosed properly. Found in only a few select places in the world, Saffron comes in various shapes and sizes, but a dose of 15mg twice a day has been shown to be just as effective as 10mg of Prozac in treating mood swings and mild to moderate depression, whilst contributing none of the side effects.”
Specifically mentioned is Dr. Funk’s Saffrony, the clinically proven natural,vegan, and non-GMO supplement properly dosed at 15mg with a 2% saffron extract.
I met Dr. Kristi Funk earlier this year in Cleveland at the Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and Cancer for Women conference. I’ve read and re-read her book, Breasts: The Owner’s Manual – full of research-backed info on breast cancer and its treatment and prevention. She is the real deal – beyond intelligent, gorgeous, and a genuinely caring physician on a mission!
