What is Organic Saffron Powder?
Organic saffron powder is the ground, dried stigmas of saffron crocus flowers. Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world because each crocus produces only three stigmas, which are laboriously hand harvested during only three weeks of the year.
Harvested from the crocus, saffron threads are the dried stigmas of the flower. Saffron is prized for its unique flavor, wonderful aroma, and distinct color. Many delicious dishes throughout the world feature saffron as the key ingredient.
How do you use Saffron Powder: When cooking with Saffron Powder, season with only a pinch of the spice. Too much saffron can overpower a dish.
Why is saffron so expensive? Some compare saffron to gold and for good reason. The harvesting of saffron is very labor intensive. Each crocus flower produces only three stigmas. It takes thousands of them to produce one ounce of saffron. Just imagine that each one of those stigma threads has to be hand picked! Though Saffron Powder is one of the more expensive spices, a little goes a long way. Steer clear of discounted saffron as it could be an imposter or lesser quality saffron.

Organic Saffron Powder Benefits:
The benefits of saffron may include:
The majority of the health claims surrounding saffron relate to its high levels of specific antioxidants. According to a 2015 review, the main active antioxidants include:
Other compounds include kaempferol and crocetin. These antioxidants help fight against oxidative stress and free radicals in the body. As oxidative stress and free radicals play a role in the development of many health conditions, including cancer and heart disease, antioxidants such as these may help protect a person's health.
2.Preventing nervous system disorders
The antioxidants in saffron may play a role in protecting the body from disorders affecting the nervous system. Research from 2015 notes that compounds in saffron powder substitute, such as crocin, appear to reduce inflammation and oxidative damage in the brain, which may lead to beneficial effects. A study in the journal Antioxidants noted that saffron might theoretically help with Alzheimer's symptoms due to both its memory-enhancing properties and its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
There is also growing evidence that saffron may help improve mood and be a useful addition to treatment for depression. A study in the Journal of Behavioral and Brain Science found that a saffron extract increased dopamine levels in the brain without changing the levels of other brain hormones, such as serotonin. Other research suggests that taking 30 milligrams (mg) of saffron each day could cause similar effects as drugs that treat mild-to-moderate depression, such as imipramine and fluoxetine. Although some people recommend using saffron as a complementary therapy for improving mood, it is too early to recommend it for treating depression symptoms.
Dermablend warm saffron setting powder may also increase sex drive and sexual function in both males and females.Researchers reviewed the effects of saffron on male infertility problems and noted that while it had a positive effect on erectile dysfunction and overall sex drive, it did not change the viability of the semen.An older study from 2012 looked at the effects in women who had reported experiencing sexual dysfunction due to taking the antidepressant fluoxetine.
Women who took 30 mg of organic saffron powder each day for 4 weeks had increased sexual desire and vaginal lubrication compared with those who took a placebo instead.
5.Reducing PMS symptoms
Organic saffron powder may also act to reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).The authors of a 2015 review looked at the research on saffron and symptoms of PMS. Women between the ages of 20 and 45 years who took 30 mg of saffron each day had fewer symptoms than those who took a placebo.
Additionally, women who simply smelled saffron for 20 minutes had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol in their system, which may also contribute to a reduction in PMS symptoms.
6.Promoting weight loss
There is also some evidence to suggest that saffron may help promote weight loss and curb the appetite. A study in the Journal of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Research found that taking a saffron extract helped people with coronary artery disease reduce their body mass index (BMI), total fat mass, and waist circumference.
