Saffron first became known in the field of traditional medicine before it became a household name as condiment and dye. Each region of the world that knows and grows crocuses has its own preparation to remedy illnesses using saffron extract. Over time saffron has become a universally known medicinal herb that cures just about any disorder or discomfort, with its effectiveness backed by new clinical studies.
Saffron is harvested by hand from the Crocus sativus flower, commonly known as the “saffron crocus.” The term “saffron” applies to the flower’s thread-like structures, or stigma.
Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. The reason for its hefty price is its labor-intensive harvesting method, making the production costly. But don’t worry, using saffron in a tincture form, to reap benefits and to feel effects, only takes a few drops.
More than 150 chemicals are present in saffron, but the key ones are crocetin and crocin, picrocrocin, and safranal, which are responsible for saffron’s color, taste, and odor. These compounds are all strong antioxidants, molecules that protect cells against free radicals and oxidative stress, and scientists propose that many of saffron’s beneficial effects can be attributed to them.
Some studies have shown that saffron supplements were significantly more effective than placebos at treating symptoms of mild-to-moderate depression. Other studies found that taking 30 mg of saffron daily was just as effective as conventional treatments (pharmaceuticals) for depression.
