Depression is a mushrooming health problem, now afflicting 1 in 10 American adults. Drug antidepressants are now regularly taken by 11% of Americans, 90% of whom suffer at least one of the numerous adverse effects that range from convulsions to abnormal bleeding to sexual dysfunction. Accumulating studies demonstrate that saffron (Crocus sativus) treats depression equally well but without these risky side effects. Other research reveals that saffron also successfully treats other conditions for which antidepressant medications are used, including anxiety, Alzheimer’s, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Surprising new evidence now shows that, when saffron is added to the regimen of male and female patients already taking antidepressants, it reverses the sexual side effects associated with these drugs!
