Saffron is known for its culinary gift as a potent and highly prized spice, imparting a rich flavor to culinary dishes. This potent flavor comes from the stamens of the saffron flower, a type of saffron that grows in Iran, India and Spain.
Saffron contains the carotenoids crocin and crocetin which, like other carotenoids, are powerful antioxidants. In addition to these antioxidants, turmeric also contains safranal. Mainly responsible for the characteristic smell of the spice, this molecule is also used as an active ingredient in a number of therapeutic preparations.
Traditional Ayurvedic and Persian systems of medicine have long featured crocus sativus for its exceptional composition and beneficial health properties, attributes that have been confirmed in numerous studies on the plant. In recent years, scientists have managed to isolate extracts with a high content of active substances.
This research also led to the formulation of Coyne Healthcare's innovation, FELIX® - a health supplement designed to offer you an exotic nature-based nutrient with untapped benefits. FELIX with affron® is a highly specialized saffron extract from Spain.
