Premenopausal and menopausal periods are sensitive moments: loss of estrogen following menopause can lead to changes in a woman’s body and sex drive.

A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study has evaluated the benefits of saffron on women subjected to sexual dysfunction. After 4 weeks of supplementation a saffron extract standardized in crocins significantly restored female sexual function compared to placebo, being particularly effective on the criteria of arousal, lubrification, and pain.
