The Surprising Spice That Gives You A Total Health Boost

Now that you’ve gotten revitalized with your alkaline drops, what else can you do to boost your health quotient?

Try using the thin, red threads harvested from Crocus Sativus- or saffron. This spice can be a little costly, but it pays off in big ways.

For one thing, saffron contains over 150 compounds that offer lycopene, beta-carotene, and other carotenoid type properties. In short, this makes the spice beneficial in treating everything from depression to detoxing.

-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.

Whether you’re making a paella or mixing saffron with your favorite smooth 8 drops for a quick facial or detox, you’re taking a step forward to cleaner, natural health.
