Health Benefits of Saffron Tea

Saffron tea has been used to help with wide range of ailments.  In Edgar Cayce’s readings, Saffron tea has been recommended for Alimentary System, Intestinal Antiseptic, Psoriasis, Ezema, Laceration, Eliminations, Digestive and Intestine Cleansing Aide.  According to Nutrition-and-You.com, Saffron can also help with asthma, cough, whooping-cough, pain, depression, cancer, intestinal gas, heart burn and PMS syndrome.  Dr. Mehmet Oz praises Saffron for appetite suppressant.

Studies indicate that saffron works by inhibiting a mechanism (called serotonin reuptake) that renders serotonin stores unavailable to brain cells. As James Smoliga, Ph.D., an associate professor of physiology at High Point University in North Carolina, explains, “When this action is inhibited, serotonin remains in the brain longer, enhancing its positive effects.”   Those effects extend beyond slimming. In a (human) trial, saffron helped 75% of women reduce monthly cramps, bloat, fatigue and irritability by 50% or more within 8 weeks.

Saffron Tea Recipe: Put a pinch of saffron tea in a cup of boiling water, or put in a cup and pour boiling water over it and allow to stand for 30 minutes.  Strain and drink it, you can drink it 2-3 times a day.
