Saffron Spicy Yellow Solution For Depression-bree daniels

Health Saffron, a well known spice, is used to give a unique flavor and a vivid yellow color to many dishes has been used for centuries in traditional medical systems to treat depression and other illnesses. Recently a number of clinical trials have shown that this spice is as effective as fluoxetine (Prozac) and imipramine in the treatment of mild to moderate depression. The spice saffron is a yellow powder derived from the stigmata (styles) of the flowering bulb Crocus sativa. It is cultivated on a .mercial basis primarily in Iran and to a lesser extent in India, Spain and a few other countries. Prior to the advent of cheaper, synthetic food colorings, saffron was also grown in other European countries including England. Although other spices have demonstrated value in the prevention and treatment of some neurological diseases saffron is the first of these to undergo clinical trials for depression. Doctors at the Tehran University of Medical Sciences carried out the clinical trials on patients with depression. The double-blind, placebo controlled trials .pared the effects of 30 mg per day of saffron powder to those of normal doses of two .mon anti-depressant drugs, fluoxetine and imipramine. In all three clinical trials saffron showed that, when it .es to treating mild to moderate depression, it is at least as effective as these two .monly used anti-depressant drugs. This latest research shows that we have yet another spice that can help with a neurological illness – in this case, depression. Depression affects all age groups but increases in incidence with age. In other words we can include it with other diseases associated with the aging process; such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, cancer and others. There is some scientific evidence that saffron, like many other other spices, may also help to prevent and treat certain cancers. Saffron contains the .pound safranal and many antioxidants such as carotenoids and other .pounds .mon to other spices that have been shown to have anti-cancer properties. Countless studies have shown that spices can help prevent and treat most age related diseases. Interestingly it is the .pounds in spices that give them their strong colours and flavours that counter the disease processes underlying these conditions. We humans evolved eating a diet consisting primarily of richly coloured, strongly flavoured, bitter, sour, ‘spicy’ plant foods. Therefore it should .e as no surprise to us that it is primarily in spices that a vast repository of therapeutic phytonutrients exists to help us .bat depression and other neurological and degenerative diseases. If we add more spices such as saffron to our meals we will not only be happier with the enhanced flavor but the .pounds in these tasty additives should also put more zest into our day and help us to avoid a visit to the psychotherapist.
