Saphron

Were you looking for information about Saffron? Saphron is a common misspelling of saffron.
 
People who experience depression, insomnia, or asthma may be interested in trying saffron. This herbal remedy is made from a type of crocus flower and is often used as an expensive spice.
 
However, when used as a supplement, it is claimed to have several health benefits. Although some studies suggest that saffron may be effective at treating depression, more research is needed to determine if it is effective for any use. Some people develop side effects while taking this product, such as nausea, anxiety, and appetite changes. It is important to know that it is possible (and potentially quite dangerous) to overdose on this product; seek immediate medical care if you think you have taken too much.
