Saffron Benefits for Women: How Saffron Extract Can Reduce Menopausal Symptoms

Managing Menopause

What is Perimenopause:

Saffron is a spice that comes from the flower of Crocus sativus. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for various health conditions. But did you know that saffron can also benefit women during perimenopause?

Perimenopause is the period before menopause when women experience changes in their hormones and menstrual cycles. This can cause unpleasant symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, sleep problems, and sexual dysfunction.

How can Saffron help?

A recent study has shown that saffron extract can help women cope with these symptoms. The study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that involved 80 women aged 40 to 65 years who had moderate to severe menopausal symptoms. They took either 28 mg of saffron extract or placebo twice a day for 12 weeks.

Saffron Benefits for Women:

The results showed that the saffron extract group had a significantly greater improvement in their menopausal symptoms than the placebo group. They also reported better mood, sleep quality, and sexual function. The saffron extract was well tolerated and did not cause any serious adverse effects.

The study concluded that saffron extract is an effective and safe natural treatment for reducing menopausal symptoms in women during perimenopause.
