Saffron Tea Benefits

  1. Saffron tea benefits for skin
  2. Saffron tea for sleep
  3. Saffron tea for weight loss

1. Saffron Tea Benefits for Skin

In summary, saffron has 2 properties that have a positive effect on your skin and these properties exist in saffron tea.

  1. Antioxidative properties
  2. Anti-anxiety and stress

I want to refer to the direct and indirect mechanisms of saffron tea’s benefits for the skin. Saffron tea has lots of powerful antioxidants such as crocin and safranal that are helpful for the beauty and radiance of your skin. Our skin is exposed to environmental factors (UV and others) and as a result of this exposure, free radicals are produced.

Free radicals attach to the structures of our cells and lead to loss of cell function. Imagine some of your face skin cells are under attack of free radicals and loss of their function. In this condition, your face cells change, and your beauty will be in danger. Saffron tea can fight these destructive factors and save the structure of your cell face.

All of us know that saffron can be efficient for depression and stress. This disease has a direct effect on our skin health and if we can control the initial disease of this effect we can save our skin from secondary damage.

So, stress and depression = skin injury and if we control the stress and depression we save our skin. Saffron can do this mission for us.

3. Saffron Tea for Sleep

Do you have restless sleep or are you awake sometimes all night? one of your choices is using chemical drugs which regulate the rate of melatonin in your brain. All of us know that any manipulation of the natural process of the body can have side effects.

This is the function of chemical drugs and sometimes is very necessary too, but the cause of this disease usually is the chronic effect of our lifestyles and chemical drugs can’t correct our lifestyles. Research shows that saffron can be very effective in correcting sleep disorders.

So you can drink saffron tea several times per week and about one hour before going to bed. This can help you to have a good and deep sleep.

Saffron Tea Side Effects

Everything that exists in this world has two faces; if we use it moderately will be good for us and otherwise can be harmful. saffron follows this rule too and if we use it more than enough we will be in probable danger. This drink maybe has some saffron side effects.

  • Decreased appetite (maybe side effect)
  • Contraindicated in pregnancy
  • Poisoning (for above of 3 g per day)
  • Kidney damage in very high consumption

Drink saffron tea several times per week and do not overdo it. In this condition, you will benefit from this drink and have a happy life.

Saffron Teabags or Saffron Threads

Saffron tea bags are simple and easy to use, they are in every shop and we can access them fast. Some of them are even cheaper than saffron, and this is important. Did you notice it?

Sometimes tea bags are cheaper than saffron threads and this has a message for us.

This is a processed product and may have some additional things besides the saffron and tea, so this isn’t an ideal choice for us. Of course, this isn’t the whole of the story, sometimes products are just containing color and they even don’t have some saffron.

Be careful about your choice and trust nature. Our recommendation is saffron threads.
