Having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep. There's a reason for that. There is a definite link between lack of sleep and depression. In fact, one of the common signs of depression is insomnia or an inability to fall and stay asleep.
New research out of Murdoch University has shown that saffron can enhance the quality of sleep in adults who have been experiencing poor sleep. Lead researcher Dr. Adrian Lopresti, whose earlier research found saffron to be an effective natural agent for the treatment of mild-to-moderate depression, said one of the features of that research showed improvements in sleep.

"In addition to the improved sleep, the study showed that saffron was well tolerated with no reported adverse effects," Dr. Lopresti said.
However, the researchers reported that even though the results were positive, the findings require replication using a larger sample size and differing populations. "Our early research is indeed positive and there is evidence that taking a standardised saffron extract is associated with improvements in sleep quality," Dr. Lopresti said
