  • Saffron found perhaps to "protect neurons from damage" seen in MS

    Why couldn't the latest herb to potentially cure MS be oregano or something hugely plentiful instead of saffron, the world's most expensive spice. Sigh. But please, let's wait for more research before we stock our pantry and drain our wallets. That said, this is a reputable Canadian university study published in the Journal of Immunology and, perhaps surprisingly, holds promise in protecting our myelin. - Dave

    Crocin in saffron is found to protect neurons from damage seen in MS.

    Researchers say though there is much to still learn, the discovery could pave the way for new treatments for multiple sclerosis and other neurological disorders.

    The ingredient was studied in lab models and cell cultures by medical researchers at the University of Alberta.

    I purchased some because it is supposed to help you not feel hungry for weight loss. I can happily say it's working for decreasing my appetite. I am glad that it could possibly help with MS.
