Since the beginning of time, the search for improvement in sexual potency is inherent in humanity. Getting better fertility is determined by the survival struggle of our species. There are many natural aphrodisiacs that over time have been used in order to enhance sexuality, some of them having more or less adverse effects.

In popular medicine, it has always been said that saffron possesses aphrodisiac effects , and it has been from the conduct of scientific analysis when it has been discovered that saffron contains a molecule called crocin , which is responsible for the enhancement of function sexual intercourse in the male. Thus, through the research has shown the effect of saffron as a stimulant of sexual function improving erection .

In fact, the intake of fifteen milligrams of encapsulated saffron twice a day by a group of men with erectile dysfunction due to the taking of antidepressants showed positive results compared to those obtained in another group of men with the same characteristics that only received placebo during this investigation, without any of them knowing in advance the component that was ingesting, that is to say, without knowing if they took placebo or saffron.


Saffron against erectile dysfunction

Thus, the group of men who received saffron (30 milligrams per day, divided into two doses) significantly improved their erectile function in more than half of the cases and without adverse effects. These results were verified at two and four weeks of saffron supplementation, and the results were observed to be greater at four weeks, although at two, an improvement in the erection of the male subjects was already perceived as interfering with the daily dose. This means that the effect of saffron is dose-dependent and has a cumulative effect on the body in terms of the efficacy of the results obtained.

In addition, saffron also has positive effects on the central nervous system in both depression and dementia, and is well tolerated. Although the mechanism of action is still not well known in the field of sexuality, it is known to increase levels of cerebral serotonin, neurotransmitter linked to the feeling of well-being. Thus, saffron is a supplement to be taken into account in the daily clinic in both erectile dysfunction and in cases of sadness, psychic discomfort or minor depression .
