-Some studies have shown that using 15 mg of saffron twice a day can serve as an antidepressant for mild to moderate depression.
-Other studies have shown that saffron extract can protect internal health from toxins- particularly toxins in the liver, kidneys, lungs, brain, and heart.
-This spice can also help accelerate weight loss by creating a satiating effect.
-Anti-inflammatory and smooth skin. Applying saffron to your skin can help ease itchiness, protect against sun damage, as well as smooth the skin.
FUN FACT: Saffron is harvested by hand. One gram of saffron threads equals one gram of the spice.

A group of 22 scientists reviewed the evidence linking red meat and processed meat consumption to cancer, and concluded that eating processed meats regularly increases the risk of colorectal cancer. Their evidence review is explained in an article published in The Lancet.
The conclusion puts processed meats in the same category of cancer risk as tobacco smoking and asbestos. This does not mean that they are equally dangerous, says theInternational Agency for Research on Cancer — the agency within the WHO that sets the classifications. And it's important to note that even things such as aloe vera are on the list of possible carcinogens.
We all know her, that leggy, flawless, super model 'body' named Elle Macpherson, but did you know at age 49 this stunner quickly switched to a pH-balanced, all alkaline diet when she had a recent cancer scare?
Australian model Elle Macpherson has opened up about a recent health scare that made her overhaul her lifestyle and adopt a strict alkaline diet.
“I thought I had cancer. I was away shooting Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model, so I couldn’t see my doctor and I was really panicking,” Macpherson said.
“It was four weeks before I got the biopsy results, so it was a long-drawn-out and stressful period of not knowing.
“I was lucky — it was a fibroadenoma [a benign growth], but it was a really big warning. I did some soul searching and realised that maybe I was taking the wrong vitamins and minerals, not eating properly and was too stressed.”
At the time, ‘The Body’, as she was nicknamed, was flying all over the world and getting limited sleep.
“I’d put the boys to bed at 9 or 10pm and work until 2am because that was the only quiet time,” she said.
“Then I’d get up at 6am. I did that for years. I thought I was incredibly productive; I didn’t realise I was burning out my adrenals and hurting myself just from not getting enough sleep.
“I decided that if I was to maintain my body, it had to come from the inside. It wasn’t going to come from only putting creams on my face, and I’m not one who can mess about with plastic surgery at this point.”
To make the change, Macpherson visited a nutritionist who advised her to adopt an alkaline diet which involves cutting down on meat and dairy and increasing her intake of green, leafy vegetables.
Earlier this year, Macpherson made headlines after she said she kept a urine testing kit in her handbag to check the acidity of her urine daily.
So you see, it's not just Smooth 8 touting the amazing benefits of antioxidant, alkaline living, even the most sought after celebrities are finding their health improves when they pH is balanced and so much more.

At least 70 percent of people in the U.S. take at least one prescription drug, while the average senior uses as many as five medications each day. Anyone who regularly sees a doctor knows drug prescriptions and dosages change regularly.
