 Health benefits of Saffron:
Saffron has been used as a medicinal spice for many centuries. It is known to be an anti-oxidant, and it is used in traditional medicine to treat tumours and depression. It also has properties that encourages oxygen flow and prevents cell death. Large doses can, however, prove fatal and it acts as an antispasmodic, diaphoretic, carminative, emmenagogic, and sedative.
