Saffron rightly superfood of superfoods
For many years I am using several Amanprana products. My all-time favorites are Kotobuki Matcha, Gula Java Cacao, Gula Java Safran, Coconut Oil, Botanico Mix and Razoli.Marco Zielinski, Geschäftsführer, Rhino's energy GmbH, Germany
Saffron contains volatile and non-volatile substances/nutrients. Alongside the non-volatile active substances saffron contains at least 150 volatile and aromatic components. Non-volatile active substances in saffron include an essential oil with cineol and different caretonoids (carotenes), amongst others alpha and beta carotene, lycopene and zeaxanthin. Zeaxanthin also occurs in the retina of the eye.
Saffron is used for medical and therapeutic purposes, mainly in quantities of 30mg of dry powder per day. 30mg dried saffron is generally accepted as an adequate standard. 0.5-3g of saffron is used in a saffron decoction. Amounts up to 3g of dried powder are perfectly possible within a therapeutic context. Beware: saffron can be dangerous if taken in too high a daily dose (>10g/day). 1 dessertspoon (15g) gula java saffron contains 45mg of dried saffron powder. It is extremely tasty and perfect for therapeutic uses. The saffron in gula java saffron is the very best quality (class 1 iso-norm (best quality)).
Alongside its traditional value as a spice, saffron has a medical history of over 2500 years (1). Many therapeutic properties are attributed to saffron. Amanprana selected a selection of scientific studies from over 200 scientific studies which have been published concerning saffron and its derivatives. Modern in vitro and in vivo research confirms saffron as a potential medicinal plant. (2) The conclusion is clear: saffron is the superfood of all superfoods, medicinal, therapeutic and culinary. Spirulina, chlorella, maca, wheatgrass, acai ....nothing comes close to the unique properties of saffron.
