  • Infuse in water: Contrary to the previous case, a good practice to take advantage of all the organoleptic properties of saffron is to infuse the spice in water for proper absorption.

    Health benefits

    Saffron is considered in many circles as a "superfood" thanks to its many health benefits:
    • Digestive system: Saffron helps the digestive system as it promotes the secretion of saliva, making food easier to digest. In addition, thanks to crocetin, it also stimulates the secretion of bile in the stomach. In general, this spice thus improves the functioning of the entire gastric system.
    • Improve memory: Our Saffron from the Oasis has a large number of antioxidant components that improve learning and cognitive processes, which in turn stimulate and strengthen memory. 
    • Antidepressant: The saffron spice provides an antidepressant effect as it is closely related to the increase in serotonergic activity in the body. Saffron promotes the secretion of serotonin, which produces direct and positive effects on the mood of people with acute depression.
