Does it have medicinal value? This one is an entirely different conversation altogether.
Saffron – “Saffron the spice.” It’s the root of the civet catacombs, a small but growing group of gardens in Morocco and Spain. The cats of these shrub-covered oases have been known to kill livestock and cats were said to have a natural aphrodisiac value. The plants are said to improve health, reduce the risk of skin cancers and may help ward off fatigue.
As the plants’ name suggest, these saffron flowers are in fact, saffron. They’re saffron and in Arabic they’re called dar (dar), which is an excellent Arabic word for “cat” or “servant,” which means to be “servant” to a person or to be “a servant of one’s master.”

For instance, saffron is a common component in food such as chia seeds. But people who are unable to eat chia, or who do not like eating chia seeds, may find them appealing. They may feel that it tastes like chocolate, although one large study has found that no difference was detected between a serving of chia seeds and a similar serving of regular chia seed.
Of course, some foods such as saffron contain high amounts of fat. Fat is a very important fat for our bodies and it helps to keep us feeling full. And when it’s rich in oil, it helps make sure that we can properly sweat the sweat and maintain our cool, moist bodies. If you want to eat saffron, you might want to buy some from a specialty store that specializes in saffron. You can find saffron in a variety of different sizes and colors.
