Saffron is an expensive spice that is also available in the form of a supplement. These supplements are claimed to have several health benefits, such as treating depression, insomnia, asthma, and baldness.
 
Some early studies have indicated that compounds in saffron may have anti-cancer activity, stimulate the secretion of stomach acids, and lower cholesterol and triglycerides. However, more research is needed to conclude that the product is effective for any use.
 
Possible side effects of saffron include nausea, drowsiness, and anxiety. In addition, some people may be more likely to experience problems with this supplement than others.
