Saffron is an Indian Ayurvedic spice, which has been traditionally used in many Ayurvedic traditions for its calming and relaxing properties. Saffron has been used for more than 3,500 years and extends across many cultures, continents, and civilisations. This succulent spice has been shown to bring about a naturally calming effect and can help promote restful sleep. It has throughout history remained among the world's most expensive spice, known as ‘red gold’. Saffron contains two chemicals, crocin and crocetin, which researchers believe may help learning and memory function. Saffron is known as a ‘yogavahi’ herb in Ayurveda as it acts like a catalyst for other herbs taken alongside it. Saffron was also experimentally shown to be effective in relieving symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.
The Montmorency Tart Cherry has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. Yet, this fruit has served many people from all walks of life for centuries. The Tart Cherry is native to the Carpathian Basin, where it is a common wild and cultivated tree. Studies have shown that Montmorency cherries can improve sleep parameters such as duration and quality, due to its naturally high Melatonin levels. Melatonin often referred to as the ‘hormone of darkness’ is a neurohormone that is produced in our body and plays a fundamental role in regulating our sleep-wake cycle. Tart Cherries also contain Tryptophan, a precursor of Serotonin which has shown to reduce sleep latency in humans. As well as providing Melatonin, Tart Cherries have an impressive nutrient profile, containing high levels of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory flavonoids, which may be beneficial for physically active people, as they help to boost endurance sport performance, while also restoring the body.
