BRAIN AND MOOD
The chemistry of the brain is highly complex, dependent on many nutrients to function optimally, and vulnerable to metabolic imbalance. When this occurs, many symptoms may emerge. Neurones communicate with each other using an array of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters; and this communication – and the growth and survival of the neurone itself - is modulated by locally acting proteins such as Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). Changes in neurotransmitter levels and uptake have been found in conditions such as stress and change in mood, and this lead to the development of drugs which manipulate neurotransmitter levels. The fact that these drugs are slow to work and relatively ineffective lead to other avenues of research, and it has recently been found that changes in BDNF and related factors may be as or more important. The bioactives in saffron have been shown
to enhance both neurotransmitters and BDNF.
VIVA – SAFFRON EXTRACT COMBINED WITH VITAMINS FOR A MAXIMUM EFFECT
Viva is a natural dietary supplement combining affron®, an extract of pure premium quality saffron stigmas (Crocus sativus L) from Spain, five B-vitamins, iodine and vitamin C. All the ingredients benefit our general wellbeing, and together they form a gentle yet powerful alliance that could improve your life in several ways.
Saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world, because most of the harvesting and processing work is done by hand. Saffron normally needs to be pre-treated before use with heat or radiation due to the presence of microorganisms, including pathogens such as E. coli. These treatments reduce microbial contamination, but they also lower the content of bioactive components, and the quality of the product.
AFFRON® THE NEW GENERATION SAFFRON EXTRACT
The process starts with the highest quality Spanish saffron stigmas. affron® is extracted using a proprietary high-tech process that eliminates microbiological contamination and improves the profile of bioactive components.
affron® is standardized to the bioactive compound Lepticrosalides® (Lopresti & Drummond, 2016) by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), a process where each bioactive substance is identified and quantified. affron®is genetically 100% DNA certified as Crocus sativus L.
affron® has been proven in 6 clinical trials to be effective and safe, with no side effects when consumed in recommended dosages. These results are in accordance with the larger body of evidence consisting of clinical trials already performed with saffron, and hundreds of other references in the scientific literature.
