Saffron and Health benefits,

I bought saffron from Heray Spices after reading about its well-supported and long-standing health benefits attributes.
I have recently gone through surgery, chemo and radiation which had left me with a number of life altering side effects. I was fortunate to find Heray Spices and Mohammad, whose assistance and obvious depth of care for both his product and growers was an inspiration. The jar of spice arrived promptly 3 weeks ago and I have replaced my morning coffee with a delightful saffron latté. At this point, it is too soon to attest to the anti-inflammatory benefits but I can certainly confirm I am feeling much more calm and my anxiety levels have dropped significantly. (Not only that but it is sweet enough on its own so I am saving 365 tsps of sugar a year!)
I look forward to discovering its other health benefits over time.
Thank you Mohammad and your growers for the most beautiful and fresh saffron I have ever seen and all of the information provided which I hope to explore in greater depth.
It has been a delightful discovery and experience.
Kind regards
Lyndis Zirbel
