Saffron petals and its effect in the treatment of diseases

What are the properties of saffron flowers?
Saffron flower is composed of three very rich chemicals such as crocin, picrocrocin and safranal. Camphorol and crocetin are other chemicals in saffron flowers. These chemical compounds have made saffron flowers one of the most important sources of antioxidants.
The human body produces antioxidants and absorbs the rest of its desired antioxidants from food. Lack of antioxidants in the body causes premature aging, increased pressure on the immune system and cell damage or activation of defective genes in the liver. Because saffron flower is rich in antioxidants, it has many therapeutic and medical properties and is known to be beneficial for the body’s health.
