Our saffron extract is manufactured with the exclusive affron® raw material, from Pharmactive Biotech Products S.L.U., a raw material recognised the world over for the great application it's demonstrated in scientific studies since the beginning of its development.
We don't use any saffron raw materials other than the affron®. All of the product's saffron extract content is standardised in the proprietary mixture of crocins and safranal from the manufacturer Pharmactive: Lepticrosalides®.
affron is made from 100% Spanish saffron (Crocus sativus L.), with certified national DNA. And it's classified with the international patent WO2017182688A1.
Pharmactive has had a large volume of scientific studies carried out using its trademarked affron® product.
For the development of this raw material, the company that owns the label has developed a proprietary blend of two of the most recognised compound families of the saffron stigma: crocin and safranal, determined by HPLC-DAD. It's known as Lepticrosalides®.
The affron® blend, developed under the intellectual property standards of the owner, has been used in 8 clinical studies with more than 400 subjects.

How to take
Take 1 vegetable capsule, 1 time a day preferably before bedtime.
I had been sleeping uneasily for some time. I was looking around and saw saffron recommended. With a capsule before going to bed I rest much better and I get a good night's sleep. It relaxes but does not make me drowsy. A successShow original languageWas the review helpful?

Try it, you will like it
Good, I was unaware of this product, that is, I did not know that the spice also exists as a supplement hehe. I knew about the effects of saffron but as a spice, especially in terms of libido, which consumed in large quantities can improve. But of course, who takes so much hehehe. So, I was curious and I have been testing the extract to check this effect. I can say that although I have been taking it for a short time, "it is already noticeable".Show original languageWas the review helpful? Be the
