Seems like a tale old remedy

But recent research shows that this red coloured spice may help you in fighting liver cancer.

While Saffron comes with a high price tag, consuming this highly delectable spice will improve your overall health.

Saffron has a major biomolecule, called Safranal, which apparently helps in stopping the cancer cell division in two different cancer stages:

  • Stops further cancer cell division
  • Promotes the death of unhealthy cancer cells

Chemists can then use this Safranal and develop it into medicinal drugs to fight off cancer cells in the body – including liver cancer, breast cancer and colorectal cancer.

The research done by UAE-based scientists has been undergoing progress since 2011 and it suggests a new invention in the way to use this expensive saffron spice.
