This meta-analysis includes 11 randomized and controlled trials (622 participants) assessing the effects of saffron supplementation on cardiovascular risk factors. The inclusion criteria were: studies assessing the effects of saffron and/or its constituents on blood lipid profile, glycemic parameters, blood pressure and anthropometric indices.


Results have shown that saffron reduces diastolic blood pressure (-1.24 mmHg, 95% CI: -1.51 to -0.96), body weight (-1.29 kg, 95% CI: -2.14 to -0.44) and waist circumference (-1.68 cm, 95% CI: -3.31 to -0.04).

A reduction in fasting plasma glucose levels has been highlighted in high quality studies only. No change in lipid profile, fasting insulin, systolic blood pressure and BMI has been noted.


Therefore, saffron has beneficial effects on several outcomes related with cardiovascular diseases.
