Potential Health Benefits of Saffron

Saffron improves metabolism and can be used as a weight management supplement due to its ability to promote satiety. Saffron also aids in increasing immunity against seasonal colds 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, especially when combined with saffron provides powerful support to the body’s immune system and helps with weight management. The high vitamin C content of damask rose helps to fight infections and rejuvenate the cells.
How to Use
Firstly, grind the saffron with a mortar and pestle. Then, dissolve in about 2 tablespoons of warm water and let steep for 10 minutes. Next, add the dissolved mixture to your food. For better grinding, add a pinch of coarse sugar to the saffron.
You can also steep for saffron threads in hot water (between 160° F/71° C and 170°F/77°C) for about 15 minutes. The saffron will be ready to use once the water has turned a deep orange color.
