“Saffron has been showing positive effects in even more comprehensive applications, including antidepressants and anticonvulsants, pain relievers, anticancer and other therapeutic effects on different parts of the body, such as cardiovascular, immune, visual, respiratory, genitourinary, central nervous system and for digestive disorders”, explains doctor Elisa Urban.

One group actually consumed saffron and the other did not. At the end of the research, none of the individuals who received doses of curcumin developed type 2 diabetes.
