Saffron, the exotic golden spice, can do more than just add colour and flavour to your dishes. It has been valued in traditional Asian medicine for its impressive health benefits. Modern science has also begun to recognize the power of saffron's bioactive compounds such as crocin, crocetin, picrocrocin, and safranal. Saffron can treat gastric disorders, lower depression, improve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, reduce insulin resistance, and protect the heart.
