Doesn’t saffron have a beautiful colour? From a local and historical point of view saffron cake, loaf and buns originated in Cornwall, and being the world’s most expensive spice by weight, I believe the expression, “as dear as saffron,” was first used in in the county to reflect on it’s preciousness.

Saffron is such an overlooked herb. But did you know, it has powerful health benefits without the side effects associated with conventional medicine?

It’s such a powerful healer that the nutritional company Viridian has made it ingredient of the year 2018 and the video below is both informative and interesting for that reason. As a supplement it actually doesn’t cost an arm and a leg but it could lighten your mood in a safe and unexpected way.

Cannabis Food Supplement Products - Cannabidiol Oil (CBD) Products in UK.

View our range of cannabis oil products - Click here.

Cannabis, also known as marijuana or pot, among other names, has a long history for medical, recreational and religious use. Most ancient cultures didn’t grow the plant to get high, but as herbal medicine, likely starting in Asia around 500 BC. The main psychoactive part of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is one of 483 known compounds in the plant. 'THC', the bit which gives  the "high" or "stoned" feeling - in other words the 'psychoactive effect' - is taken out of the products now appearing for sale in UK shops under different brand names.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds found inside the resin glands (trichomes) of the female cannabis plant. These chemical compounds are known as cannabinoids.

Although cannabis use is not recent, the call to legalise it, beginning in the 1970s has grown in popularity. For a long time it has been subject to legal restrictions. However, to date several U.S. states have legalised it for recreational or medical use and in the UK the organisation responsible for health legislation, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), has supposedly made a decision.

Recently the  MHRA has found that Cannabidiol (CBD) has a “restoring, correcting or modifying” effect on “physiological functions” when administered to humans. This is a major step forward in a potential move to legalise cannabis and bring about evidence-based laws regarding drugs. However the MHRA only allows the sale of cannabidiol products because they are consumed as a food. As long as suppliers retail them as a food supplement based on the hemp plant, make no medical claims suggesting they have physiological effects, then they can be legally sold.

Cannabidiol taps into the body’s own endocannabinoid system that many consider the master controller for many functions in the body - including nerve, immune, hormone and metabolism.These products contains all the vital cannabinoids and compounds of the plant.

In fact, if the MHRA were to act on its powers, whether to permit or ban sales of cannabidiol products they would have to consider each product on a case by case basis, and all the characteristics of the product, in particular its composition, its pharmacological properties (to the extent scientifically known), the manner in which it is used, the extent of distribution, its familiarity to consumers and the risks which its use may entail. In other words they would have to review each product in terms of its efficacy and safety within the framework of the Medicines Act. As yet, they have not announced any decision to do so. They may do in the future as they have done with many safe herbal products, such as St John's Wort and Black Cohosh, previously sold as food supplements.

CBD is the major non psychoactive component of Cannabis sativa. According to a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD's benefits include acting in some experimental models as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic agent, and is therefore a potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety and schizophrenia.

The claims made about CBD oil, in practice, cannot be proven in the UK until the MHRA issues a license for each and every product sold on the UK market, despite the fact they have said it has medical benefits. The license would define the benefits associated with the CBD products as part of traditional use. However, in theory, in the absence of this official piece of paper, there are many anecdotal claims we read about every day. Accepting that CBD products are safe, it is left to each user to make their own minds up whether to try them or not, and to hope for the best they experience similar improvements to their health and wellbeing as others say they have.

THE ALTERNATIVE TO… WINTER BLUES - A Review of Viridian's Saffron Extract
(By: Randi Henderson)

The nights are getting longer and with less daylight this can bring on a condition known as SAD, seasonal affective disorder. Although the exact cause of SAD isn't fully understood, experts theorise that a lack of sunlight might stop a part of the brain called the hypothalamus working properly, affecting the production of the key mood and sleep hormones, melatonin and serotonin.

It’s also considered that lack of vitamin D synthesis, normally a process of the sun on the skin, can affect mood, and the Government recommends that everyone in the UK supplements with appropriate vitamin D from October to March to protect against deficiency.

Another supplement which is gaining a significant reputation for its anti-depression qualities is saffron. That’s right, the herb you probably know best from your granny’s saffron buns and the paella you had on your holiday in Spain. However, saffron also has a long history in traditional healing. In modern times, saffron’s health properties have attracted considerable scientific interest. Chief among them are studies on its uplifting and antidepressant activity, and research into enhancing cognitive ability. Studies also show that saffron is just as effective against other conditions for which antidepressant drugs are commonly prescribed, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Saffron has also been studied as a potential treatment for stress related over-eating. In a group of overweight women it was found that saffron supplementation for eight weeks resulted in a significant decrease in snacking frequency and body weight. Remarkably, newly published evidence demonstrates that saffron also works as adjunct therapy to reverse some of the unwanted side effects frequently experienced when taking conventional antidepressants.

At Elixir, we particularly like Viridian Nutrition’s Saffron Extract with Marigold as it is a totally pure product and one capsule gives you the correct daily amount of saffron. After reviewing a vast array of nutrition and herbal research, and speaking with leading experts, Viridian Nutrition has duly recognised saffron, naming it the ‘Viridian Ingredient of the Year 2018’ in further anticipation of its positive influence on health.

Saffron extract together with vitamin D could prove to be the right programme to help you banish those winter blues. There are no known side effects but as always, if you are on other medication, speak to your medical practitioner before taking any supplements.

Click here: Elixirhealth.co.uk - for SPECIAL OFFER ON Turmeric Spray, July 2017

By Randi Henderson

"Turmeric is a spice with an impressive list of uses and benefits, and is used in many cuisines around the world. It comes from the dried and ground root of a plant in the same family as ginger, and is well known for its bright yellow colour.

Turmeric is now of increasing interest because of its antioxidant content and ability to work as a powerful anti-inflammatory. Modern medicine recognizes its health benefits and it has been used extensively in natural and folk medicine for centuries. The benefits attributed to this colourful spice are the result of the curcuminoids it contains - the active ingredients in turmeric.

The problem is that turmeric is very poorly absorbed in the gut, meaning it’s not enough to simply eat a curry every once in a while!

At Elixir, we are excited that the world’s first Turmeric Oral Spray has just been launched in the UK, which has proven to be far more effective than the average tablets or capsules. Using molecular encapsulation, BetterYou’s Turmeric Oral Spray guarantees better absorption than tablets since it bypasses the digestive system altogether. This is great news as turmeric can have as low as 1% absorption in the gut.
The unique formulation increases bioavailability (absorption), improves taste and delivers the active curcuminoids directly into the bloodstream via the inner cheek. It also ensures you do not suffer discolouration of your teeth, which would otherwise be a problem with a liquid formula.
The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric mean that anyone with arthritis or rheumatism would find it very helpful. Its antioxidant properties have cell-protective actions including prevention of free radical damage, inhibiting the replication of damaged cells. Turmeric has also been used for digestive problems such as gastritis and hyperacidity, as it helps protect the stomach lining. By increasing the flow of bile into the intestines, the break-down of dietary fat is also improved.

In other words, turmeric is an anti-inflammatory which is actually good for your stomach. If you have ever had to take anti-inflammatory medication, this is definitely a characteristic you will appreciate!

BetterYou’s Turmeric Oral Spray uses natural ingredients and the orange flavoured formulation is suitable for vegetarians, diabetics and coeliac, and is safe to use during pregnancy.

At Elixirhealth.co.uk we have a July 2017 in-store SPECIAL OFFER of Turmeric Oral Spray, so now is an excellent time to try it for yourself.
