Saffron is well known for its culinary gift as a potent and highly prized spice imparting
a rich flavour to culinary dishes. This potent flavour comes from the stamens of the
saffron flower, a type of crocus that grows in Iran, India and Spain. Saffron contains
the carotenoids crocin and crocetin which, like other carotenoids, are powerful
antioxidants. Apart from these antioxidants, saffron is also comprised of safranal.
Primarily responsible for the spice’s distinctive smell, this molecule is also used as
an active principle in a number of therapeutic preparations. Traditional Ayurvedic and
Persian systems of medicine have long featured Crocus sativus for its exceptional
composition and health-beneficial properties, attributes which have been confirmed
in numerous studies on the plant. In recent years, scientists have succeeded in
isolating extracts with a high content of active substances.
Such research has also led to the formulation of the Coyne Healthcare innovation,
