Additional Supporting Research

If you want to go deeper into the supporting research, the following section summarizes studies on the key Kids Mood+ ingredients.

Affron® Saffron Stigma Extract

Affron® Saffron Stigma Extract, derived from the Crocus sativus flower, is increasingly recognized for its potential mental health benefits.

In children and adolescents, saffron extract has shown promise as a natural treatment for mood enhancement and anxiety relief. A 2018 study found that saffron supplementation led to significant improvements in mood and reduced symptoms of depression in adolescents aged 12-16 years.1Lopresti, A. L., Drummond, P. D., & Inarejos-García, A. M. (2018). Saffron (Crocus sativus) for depression in young people: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Journal of Affective Disorders, 232, 349-357. Another study with the same age group found that saffron was effective in treating mild to moderate depression.2Baziar, S., Aqamolaei, A., Khadem, E., Mortazavi, S. H., Mokhber, N., & Shoeibi, A. (2019). Crocus sativus L. (saffron) versus fluoxetine on depression among adolescent: A randomized, double-blind study. Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology, 29(3), 205-212.

In a study with 128 adults, affron® supplementation was shown to decrease negative mood and symptoms related to stress and anxiety.3Kell G, Rao A, Beccaria G, Clayton P, Inarejos-García AM, Prodanov M. affron® a novel saffron extract (Crocus sativus L.) improves mood in healthy adults over 4 weeks in a double-blind, parallel, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Complement Ther Med. 2017 Aug;33:58-64. doi: 10.1016/j.ctim.2017.06.001. Epub 2017 Jun 13. PMID: 28735826.

Moreover, saffron’s antioxidant properties contribute to its neuroprotective effects, potentially aiding cognitive function and reducing stress.4Kell, G., Rao, A., Beccaria, G., Clayton, P., Inarejos-García, A. M., & Prodanov, M. (2020). Affron® a novel saffron extract (Crocus sativus L.) improves mood in healthy adults over 4 weeks in a double-blind, parallel, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Complementary Therapies in Medicine, 50, 102202. These findings suggest that affron® Saffron Stigma Extract could be a valuable natural supplement for enhancing mental well-being in younger populations.

Holy Basil Leaf Extract

Holy Basil Leaf Extract, known scientifically as Ocimum sanctum, is renowned for its adaptogenic properties, which may have a beneficial impact on mental health, particularly in children.

Research suggests that Holy Basil can help mitigate stress and anxiety. A study by Cohen (2014) highlights the stress-reducing and anxiolytic effects of Holy Basil in children and adolescents, attributing these benefits to its ability to regulate cortisol levels, a hormone associated with stress.5Cohen, M. M. (2014). Tulsi – Ocimum sanctum: A herb for all reasons. Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, 5(4), 251–259.

Another study found that Holy Basil acts as an adaptogen in helping maintain a “healthy” stress response.6Cooley, K., Szczurko, O., Perri, D., Mills, E. J., Bernhardt, B., Zhou, Q., & Seely, D. (2009). Naturopathic care for anxiety: A randomized controlled trial. PLoS ONE, 4(8), e6628.

This herb’s potential in supporting emotional well-being and resilience in stressful situations makes it a promising natural remedy for mental health concerns in younger populations.

Rosemary Leaf Extract

Rosemary Leaf Extract, from the herb Rosmarinus officinalis, has been traditionally used for its cognitive-enhancing properties.

Recent studies suggest that Rosemary may have a positive impact on mental health, particularly in improving concentration and memory in children.

Additionally, the antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties of Rosemary may contribute to its neuroprotective effects, potentially improving overall brain health and reducing anxiety.7Pengelly, A., Snow, J., Mills, S. Y., Scholey, A., Wesnes, K., & Butler, L. R. (2012). Short-term study on the effects of rosemary on cognitive function in an elderly population. Journal of Medicinal Food, 15(1), 10–17.

Clove Flower Extract

Clove Flower Extract, derived from Syzygium aromaticum, is known for its antioxidant properties, which may play a role in mental health.

While there is limited research on its direct effects on children’s mental health, studies suggest that its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties could have neuroprotective effects.

These properties may help in reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, factors that are often linked to cognitive and emotional disorders in children.


Oregano, or Origanum vulgare, is renowned for its antioxidant properties. A study by Conforti et al. (2009) highlights its neuroprotective effects due to its high phenolic content.8Conforti, F., Sosa, S., Marrelli, M., Menichini, F., Statti, G. A., Uzunov, D., Tubaro, A., & Menichini, F. (2009). The protective ability of Mediterranean dietary plants against the oxidative damage: The role of radical oxygen species in inflammation and health. Journal of Medicinal Food, 12(3), 667-674.

These properties might contribute to mental wellness, although specific research focusing on children’s mental health is limited.
