You might know saffron is widely used in Persian, Indian, European, Arab and Turkish cuisines. But have you heard about its health benefits? No? There are quite a lot. Let me introduce them to you!
I think it was about five weeks ago when Pure Saffron contacted me to try out this product. When I met with the owner we had this great talk and I could tell how enthusiastic and dedicated he was about and to this spice. I figured why not give it a go and I have been drinking it constantly for the last weeks. I now get why he was so enthusiastic about it and I really want to share the beauty of this product with you.
So this spice has been there since ancient times. Pharaohs in ancient Egypt used saffron for seasoning and as an aphrodisiac, the Greeks used it for its aromatic qualities and its color and the emperors in ancient Rome took perfumed saffron baths. Quite a spice, that saffron. Plus they contain lots of benefits for your health. The spice contains vitamin C, manganese, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and copper and works as a natural antioxidant; it neutralizes free radicals within the body. Its been said that it even cures chronic bronchitis. Another health benefit that has been claimed is that it relieves headaches and insomnia ánd improves sight. Yay, for your body!
My favorite way to use this product is by infusing it in my tea. Just one threat of saffron can make a full pot of tea. I love mixing it with a bit of fresh ginger and a splash of lemon, but even on its own the taste is great. The most important thing while infusing is that you let it sit for about one hour (…or at least 10 to 15 minutes) before drinking. This way the water can absorb all the nutrients best.
