Health Tip

Hello everyone….it’s Friday again. Are you having trouble or having problem on your PMS (premenstrual syndrome) every month? Do you want to fight it? Well, here’s the solution, just take Saffron to cuts the symptoms of PMS and fights depression. Saffron is a deep orange powder from the flower of a crocus used to color and flavor foods. It is the most expensive spice and it came from Southwest Asia. It characterized by a bitter taste and an iodoform or hay-like fragrance; these are caused by the chemicals picrocrocin and safranal. It also contains a carotenoid dye, crocin that gives food a rich golden yellow hue. It has medicinal applications, too. Researchers tested the spice-taken in capsule form, twice daily for two months-on 50 PMS sufferers experiencing cramps, bloating, irritability and fatigue for at least six months. Three-quarters of the women on saffron capsules reported a whopping 50 percent or greater drop in their PMS symptoms. In addition, 60 percent of the women taking the spice reported a major improvement in depression symptoms. Experts think that saffron elevates key brain chemicals and could be used to alleviate both depression and PMS. Since I’m one of the PMS sufferers, I will try to take this saffron spice so it will stop my cramping every time I have PMS. Now, I have to find out where to buy it.

Have a Wonderful weekend to y’all….
