Potential Health Benefits of Saffron
Saffron can have significant benefits for the mind and body. Many of the benefits come from crocin, an antioxidant-rich chemical compound found in the saffron stigma. Crocin aids in reducing headaches, especially those caused by stress or poor diet, while also providing mood-boosting effects. Saffron can be used as a weight management supplement due to its ability to promote satiety. It also helps to balance the digestive system 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.
How to Use
Ground Saffron Instructions: First, grind the saffron stigmas into a fine powder consistency with a mortar and pestle. To have better abrasion, you may add a pinch of coarse sugar to the saffron while grinding it. Next, you can dissolve the ground saffron in a small amount of hot water, about 2 tablespoons, to release the color and aroma. Increase water as necessary for larger amounts of saffron. When dissolved, add to your food as desired.
Steep Instructions: Alternatively, steep full saffron stigmas (about 2-3 threads per person) in hot water (between 160° F/71° C and 170°F/77°C) for about 15 minutes. Once the liquid is changed to deep orange color, it is ready to be added to your desired dish or drink.
