Potential Health Benefits of Saffron
Saffron is known for its many significant benefits for the mind and body. A spice rich in antioxidants, it help to reduce headaches, especially those caused by stress or poor diet, while also providing mood-boosting effects. Saffron helps to promote satiety and improves metabolism. Saffron also aids in increasing immunity against colds and flu and helps to strengthen the bones and joints. The regenerative effects of saffron have also been effective in enhancing eyesight.
Aside from its flowery aroma, the cool damask rose helps to remove toxins from the body and provides powerful support to the body’s immune system. It is also high in vitamin C content, to help fight infections and rejuvenate the cells.
How to Use
Grind saffron threads into a powder using a mortal and pestle. Next, dissolve the saffron in a small amount of warm water to release color and aroma. Add the dissolved mixture to your food. For better grinding, add a pinch of coarse sugar to the saffron.
You may also steep saffron by placing two to three saffron threads in hot water (between 160° F/71° C and 170°F/77°C) for about 15 minutes. When the saffron water has turned deep orange in color, it can be added to your desired recipe.
