The Path to Serenity

Dr. Amanda Wiggins, PhD, explains how you can find your new happy place with Serene Saffron.

“Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen increasing challenges in our lives and this has added stress and problems with sleep. It’s having a real impact on lives and customers were reaching out to us for a natural product to support health and wellbeing.”

As a PhD in neurology and Chief Research Scientist at Xtend-Life, Amanda was ideally placed to work with Warren to find a solution.

The combination of her research experience and the 20 years+ of Xtend-Life’s experience in manufacturing advanced,complex dietarysupplements in our own custom-built facility meant it was possible to develop a supplement that really worked and was supported by strong science.

“We believe Serene Saffron can support a sense of calm while dealing with everyday pressures, allowing you to be focused and energised enough to manage all activity. Think of it as food for a healthy mind and a way to boost your mood and find your happy place and a sense of wellbeing.“

What can I Expect with Serene Saffron?

Each of the ingredients in Serene Saffron works in a different way to help your body and mind maintain ahealthy mood and sense of calm. All Xtend-Life products are designed to support your sense of wellbeing.

That said, it’s important to understand that no supplement is going to make you superhuman.

Sadly, we’re living in a time when, for many people, stress and a lack of focus are the new normal, so the goal for many people is to get back to the “old normal” – back to the real you.

And in a time of stress, being normal - whether it’s a skip in your step, smiling more or just looking forward to getting out and seeing people again – sometimes needs a little help.

The special form of saffron that we have selected in Serene Saffron has been clinically proven to support healthy mood.

At the same time, the L-Theanine gets to work immediately to deliver a feeling of relaxed alertness meaning you can concentrate for longer without the jittery effects of caffeine.

You should feel the effects of the special KSM-66 form of Ashwagandha with a greater sense of calm.

The saffron continues to improve mood.

Continue taking Serene Saffronas part ofyour daily routine.

Long Term

With the ongoing use of Serene Saffron each day, you should start to feel an improved quality of life and well-being. Studies show the effects of Saffron continue to build with support for a healthymood flowing through to a better sense of well-being which leads on to other health benefits. Ashwagandha becomes more effective at relieving stress over time, while L-Theanine brings relaxed alertness during the day. Together the ingredients combine to deliver more restful sleep.

Break the Stress Cycle Naturally

When Warren Matthews saw the increasing number of people looking for relief from the stresses of day-to-day life and feeling overwhelmed, he knew it was a challenge he couldn't refuse. After all, as the founder of Xtend-Life and someone who has studied wellness for decades and helped hundreds of thousands of people support their health over the last twenty years, he was in a unique position to help.

My vision for Xtend-Life was as a unique company that would develop and manufacture solutions for people looking to find a better way to improve their health.

When I saw the changes in people I knew, people who had previously been outgoing, sociable, being increasingly isolated, I wanted to reach out and help.

I worked with our team to produce a formula that will support people in dealing withstress and supporting a healthy mood and aims to deliver all the healthy side benefits that an improved sense of wellbeing can provide.

We had two main aims - make it natural and find the most effective ingredients.

With Serene Saffron, I believe we've done this.

Key Ingredients

There are seven ingredients in Serene Saffron four of which are co-factors to support the efficacy of the three main ingredients. Serene Saffron brings together a rich history using natural remedies dating back thousands of years across Asian and Persian cultures. Two of these ingredients have had their efficacy enhanced through modern scientific extraction processes. As with all Xtend-Life products we look at ways to also synergistically combine the best ingredients to multiply their effect. It is often possible to make the whole greater than the value of the components. This is what we believe we have achieved with the strategic combination of these key ingredients.


Ashwagandha has been traditionally known for centuries to help deal with stress, pressure and stress-related food cravings.

We selected a special patented form of Ashwagandha called KSM-66, which is extracted from the root, not the leaves which are less potent. This is the highest concentration full-spectrum extract that we could source and has been validated by independent trials.


Saffron is an ancient traditional herb that has been clinically proven to support a sense of wellbeing.

We use a special patented extract called Safr’Inside from the south of France. It only uses one part of the saffron flower… the redder part of saffron stigmas which is the richest in the active compound (Safromotivines). This is the part that gives saffron its special properties.


L-Theanine has been taken for thousands of years to improve concentration, focus and relaxation.

It does this by supporting healthylevels of serotonin (responsible for mood and happiness) and dopamine (responsible for reward and motivation). The result is to help increase alertness and performance under pressure.

The Cycle of Stress and Low Energy

Stress and low mood feed on each other, creating a cycle that can compound. The stress of day to day life can negatively impact your physical wellness – you tend to lose sleep and have digestion problems.


Tips for Mental Health

There is no single solution for maintaining a sense of calm and wellbeing. As with most things related to health, the best cure is to take a broad look across your physical, mental, emotional and dietary health. So while supplements can certainly help, here are some easy tips to improve your well being.

Stay connected – reach out to friends or family to share what you’re thinking and feeling, and to stay in touch with what they’re doing. Maybe even combine with a walk or other exercise.

Exercise – there are proven benefits to exercise from heart health to mental health. Getting outside can get you vitamin D from the sun and it can even help with sleep.

Sleep – our brain needs to rest, get into regular sleep patterns and give yourself time to wind down before you go to sleep, avoid caffeine and screens at the end of the day.
