Saffron extract is widely available these days, but how does it work in relation to weight loss? Saffron extract works by elevating serotonin levels throughout the body. Serotonin is a factor in moods and in the control of appetites, so when serotonin levels are too low, unhealthy dietary choices are more common. The lack of serotonin in the bloodstream is also linked to binge eating.
When you make healthy food choices and avoid binge eating, you will find that weight loss is achievable. You feel full more quickly, so you won’t consume as many calories.
In recent clinical studies, two separate studies showed decreased food intake in one hundred percent of the subjects. There is a decreased appetite reported in 84 percent of the subjects.
As always, do not start taking a supplement if you have any health issues without consulting your doctor first.
