The aim of this triple-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial was to survey the effect of saffron supplementation on anti-HSP70, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and spirometry test in patients with allergic asthma.

To do so, 80 patients with mild and moderate allergic asthma were randomized to receive either two capsules of saffron (100 mg/d) or placebo (control group) for 8 weeks.


Saffron supplementation in patients with allergic asthma

Within- and between-group comparisons of the changes from baseline to endpoint measures for hs-CRP and anti-HSP70 in saffron and placebo groups of asthmatic patients

Results showed that saffron significantly reduced the hs-CRP (p < 0.001) and anti-HSP70 (p < 0.001) concentrations compared to placebo. In spirometry test, forced expiratory volume in first second (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), FEV1/FVC ratio and forced expiratory flow were 25-75%. (FEF 25-75) increased significantly in saffron in comparison to placebo group (p < 0.05).

Authors concluded that saffron supplementation in patients with allergic asthma decreased significantly anti-HSPs 70 and hs-CRP and also improved some spirometry test factors.
