Effective as Prozac

Saffron, a spice derived from the saffron crocus flower, has been used medicinally since ancient times.

Saffron contains a number of carotenoids which are believed to be largely responsible for a number of saffron's health benefits, including inhibiting skin tumors, improving arthritis and improving eye and vision health.

In this study reviewed by Dr, Michael Greger, saffron was found to be just as effective as Prozac in treating depression...without the pharmaceutical side effects.

This article from Natural News has more information about the health benefits of saffron.
