Medicinal uses of saffron

Posted on December 14, 2014 at 1:40 AM

Hello everyone.  Saffron is expensive to buy.  Many thousands of stigmas are needed for just a few grams.  Approximately 150 000 flowers are needed to produce a single kilogram of saffron.  The plant itself is easy to grow and tolerates a range of soil and climates.  It is thought that the ancestors of saffron originated from eastern Mediterranean and in Western Asia.  Saffron doesn't produce fertile seed so propagation is by cuttings.  The buddists used saffron to dye their robes.  The name saffron is derived from the word 'yellow" which refers to the dye product from soaked stigmas.  Saffron is rich in manganese, with some iron, phosphate, calcium and magnesium.  The stigma contains some vitamin C and B and folate.  Several recent studies have found saffron can reduce the incidence and treat cancer.  Saffron has strong antioxidant properties.  Saffron is used to treat many conditions including digestion issues, jaundice, rheumatism and reduce phlegm.  Saffron is used as an aphrodisiac, as a sedative and as an analgesic (for pain).  Saffron is also used to relieve mild to moderate depression.  Saffron could also be used to treat neurodegenerative disorders that accompany memory impairment.  Saffron is also used as clothes dye.  Love, Peace and harmony to you all.  Lesley.
