Give saffron a try

Thursday, November 7, 2019

I'm astounded by scientifically proven usefulness of a little known medicinal and culinary herb. I've known about it as seasoning in eastern and Asian dishes but the benefit goes far beyond taste buds and the palate. This is a remarkable and shockingly beneficial supplement that according to multiple well healed institutions worldwide can help us deal with many of our ailments.

Recently I've come across strong university science based published papers from Australia, Oxford, UK, Madrid Spain and the Middle East all supporting the use of a little known herb Saffron Crocus sativus

Amazing? Wow? Yes the data holds true that just one herbal could be anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, improves memory and learning and more. So far, the studies indicate saffron in a large enough amount shows benefit above placebo and in some cases on par with prescription drugs. It's very safe, too!

My review of published papers from around the world through PubMed shows strong likelihood of benefit for early memory loss as well as those with depression, anxiety and early dementia. Some publications even mention clinical trials for Alzheimer's, showing it was as effective as the prescribed drug donepezil.

Have an autoimmune disease? How about needing to increase mental alertness and reduced stress? Symptoms of menopause? Cardiovascular disease, allergies even reducing the urge to snack to enhance weight loss?

I'm stunned that much of the rest of the world has known about this, yet it is just surfacing here. I'm in awe of the possible benefit to so many and for such a long list of troubles. The only way to know this herb is for you is to give it a try. Science works in probabilities not in absolutes. Everyone is a little different from each other and dosing studies haven't been done so finding your own workable amount will be needed.

I'm not prone to using words such as miracle but if it works well for you, I'll be happy to dance right along side of you.
