Potential Health Benefits of Saffron
Saffron has an array of benefits for the mind and body. Many of these benefits come from crocin, an antioxidant-rich chemical compound found in the saffron stigma. Crocin aids in reducing headaches and migraines caused by stress or poor diet, while also providing mood-boosting effects. Saffron is often used as a weight management supplement due to its ability to promote satiety, it helps to balance the digestive system and improves metabolism. Saffron also helps to support the immune system against colds and flu and aids in strengthening the bones and joints. The regenerative effects of saffron have also been effective in enhancing eyesight.
How to Use
With a mortar and pestle, grind saffron threads into a powder form and dissolve in a small amount of hot water to achieve desired color and aroma intensity. Next, add the dissolved mixture to your food. For better grinding, add a pinch of coarse sugar to the saffron.
Place the desired number of saffron threads in hot water (between 160° F/71° C and 170°F/77°C) for about 15 minutes. After the water has changed to a deep orange color, the saffron will be ready for use.
