Below we take an in-depth look at Saffron Hunger Chews to see how effective it is at suppressing the appetite and aiding weight loss.
Saffron Hunger Chews are a single ingredient appetite suppressant that promises to aid weight loss by reducing cravings for unhealthy food as well as reducing appetite in general.
Saffron Hunger Chews are manufactured by Rebody, who are based in Florida. The company state that:
Rebody is the one-stop shop you have been looking for to achieve a natural, healthy, clinically studied approach to lasting body transformation.
The company can be contacted using the information provided on their official website.
We have located two customer complaints about Rebody on the Better Business Bureau’s website, with both complaints starting with a product not being delivered despite having paid for the product. Both customers go on to explain how they had trouble contacting the company, with customer service repeatedly stating that they would phone them back or refund the money, with neither happening.
The product is mandarin orange flavoured.
Rebody, the manufacturers of Saffron Hunger Chews, provide the following directions for use: Take 1 delicious chew twice daily (morning and evening) before meals or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. For best results, use a minimum of 8 weeks.
The manufacturer provides the following description of the benefits of Saffron Hunger Chews:
Saffron Hunger Chews™ are non-stimulant appetite control supplements to help to curb your appetite and reduce the intake of excess calories. The secret to the product is the ingredient Satiereal®, a proprietary extract of Saffron, which is scientifically shown to curb hunger and snack cravings. Studies have shown that after eight weeks of use, participants had a reduced desire to snack, fewer instances of between meal snacking and had an increased feeling of fullness.
Each chew contains 20 calories, 3 grams of sugar, and 88.5 mg of Satiereal Saffron Extract. There are no other active ingredients used in Saffron Hunger Chews.
The clinical trial that links saffron with appetite suppression and weight loss noted very small results. Over the eight week trial period, female overweight participants lost an average of 0.96 kg. Their appetite suppression was measured in terms of the frequency of snacking. Saffron taking participants had a 55% reduction in snacking frequency, whilst the placebo taking group had a 28% reduction in snacking frequency.
This trial did not look at the calorific value of any snacks or the total daily calorific intake of the participants. This is also the only study that has looked at Saffron and its link to weight loss. No studies have looked at saffron’s effect upon the metabolism.
Studies have found that small doses of saffron (15-30 mg per day) are effective at reducing depressive symptoms.
Possible side effects of saffron include dry mouth, dizziness, stomach discomfort, anxiety, drowsiness, nausea, changes in appetite and headaches. It is possible to be allergic to saffron. It may also lower blood pressure.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone with bipolar disorder. Consult your doctor if you are unsure about the suitability of this or any other supplement.
There are numerous customer reviews for Saffron Hunger Chews on amazon, one of the numerous websites that sells the product.
This product was wonderful for the first eight days. I felt like, FINALLY something to stop my sweet cravings. But it seems as time goes by, they lose their effectiveness. I still have to fight my sweet cravings. Not sure if I need more than two a day or your body just becomes immune and they stop being effective.
They help with cravings and keep my blood sugar even. I like the tangy orange flavor and plan on ordering more.
Taste like cleaning fluid worse purchase ever do not buy it awful awful horrible doesn’t curb appetite never will buy again.
I started taking these 6 months ago and they kicked in right away. I didn’t use as directed, though.. I ate 2-3 per day with 12-16 oz of water and I seriously have been eating half as much as I did before. It seems like my brain listens to my stomach more than my tongue now, i.e. the cravings are virtually gone and now I only eat when I’m actually hungry instead of any time a coworker brings in cookies.
I highly recommend these. I don’t know if it is all in my mind or if these really work, but they keep the snacking away and I have ordered my second batch. Amazon has the best prices. Love this product!
This is quite possibly the worst product I have ever tasted. Either they really taste this bad or I have a bad batch. They taste chemically and very very bitter – I’m completely shocked at how bad these were. Don’t waste your money.
Customer reviews are mixed about how effective Saffron Hunger Chews are at suppressing the appetite. Some customers have lost weight by reducing the amount they eat, with the help of a reduced appetite and reduced cravings, but others feel that the sweet flavoured chew actually stimulates their hunger.
Consumers are also divided by the taste of the product. Whilst some love the fruity mandarin flavour, others compare it to plastic and chemicals.
The clinical evidence suggests that saffron could suppress the appetite slightly. However, the results of the study showed only minimal weight loss over a prolonged period of use. The best results are seen when combining use of the product with a calorie restricted diet
A single bag of Saffron Chews contains 30 chews, enough for a 15 day supply. The product is available from numerous online retailers, including direct from the manufacturer’s official website.
From the official manufacturer’s website, My Rebody, a single bag of Saffron Hunger Chews costs $19.99.
From Vitacost a single bag costs $19.99 plus delivery charges.
Whilst this product is slightly more expensive than many other single ingredient supplements, especially considering that a single pack will last for only 15 days, customers should remember that saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world, because it needs to be harvested by hand, from a plant that provides a very small amount per flower.
Rebody state that they have a 30 day returns policy, no questions asked. However, they do not state whether this covers opened products or not.
Our 30-day return policy gives you plenty of time to consider your purchase. That’s why you can be sure you made the right decision. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason, you may return your order within 30 days from the date of purchase for a full refund. No Questions Asked.
Considering the cost of the supplement and the clinical support for the sole active ingredient, this diet pill is fairly expensive for such small results. It would be best used in combination with a calorie restricted diet, rather than as the only weight loss measure being undertaken. When changing no other habits, the use of saffron resulted in a very small amount of weight loss over an 8 week period, but it’s appetite suppressing abilities, that lead to a reduction in snacking, could help consumers to stick to their new reduced diet plans.
Customer reviews indicate that Rebody offer poor customer service. They offer a 30 day returns policy, but do not specify whether or not it covers opened products.
Whilst the only trial available concerning saffron and weight loss does suggest that saffron does suppress the appetite, it also shows that the results are moderate at best. This is not a strong appetite suppressant, although it may help some people to stick to a diet by regulating the worst of their cravings for snacks.

Overall, we do not recommend Saffron Hunger Chews to our readers. There are numerous other single ingredient products that will provide similar or greater results for a much lower price, especially when considering long term use of a natural appetite suppressant. Alternatives that will have similar results include glucomannan based supplements.
