This isn't about saffron or whether saffron is harmful, it is about a diet supplement that is probably overpriced and won't give people the results they expect.
Even if I didn't say it was harmful, who knows if a concentrated saffron extract is harmful? It is possible, we eat things like cyanide in small quantities but a cyanide extract would kill you.
