ARE SAFFRON AND TURMERIC IN THE SAME FAMILY? AND CAN THEY HELP FIGHT CANCER?

Up to two years ago, I didn’t know the difference between turmeric and saffron. I thought they were from the same plant, turmeric being the root and the saffron flower. But no, they are two different plants, turmeric is from the Curcuma species, and saffron from the Crocus Sativus species. This article will introduce some of the wonderful anti-cancer properties, among others, of both saffron and turmeric. And also ways we can include them into our diets.


Bright Colour Spices


If this is the first time you heard about them, that’s how it looks in nature.


Turmeric or golden spice, as it is also called, because of its bright yellow colour, originated in India about 4000 years ago. Today it is cultivated mostly in tropical parts of the world, as it loves sun and water.
