Saffron has many applications in pharmaceutical, food and a number of other industries. Saffron's use as a spice, in preparing sauce and for natural coloring in foods and beverages has a long history. Saffron is a traditional medicine and is considered to be a panacea, an anti-spasmodic and a tonic. Its properties are recommended for treating stomach pains, preventing tooth decay, soothing cough and treating chronic bronchitis. Saffron is mainly a tranquilizer and digestive element and is also recognized to have antibacterial and antiviral activities.
Saffron is an herbal preparation harvested from the stigma of the Crocus sativus flower. It is dark orange and threadlike in appearance, with a spicy flavor and pungent odor. The plant is grown in India, Spain, France, Italy, the Middle East, and the eastern Mediterranean region.
Medical and pharmaceutical applications:
The application of saffron in cancer-treatment experiments performed on laboratory animals has proved successful.
In summary, due to saffron�s unique properties, it can be used in various industries such as food and medical industries

General use In addition to its culinary uses, saffron is prescribed as an herbal remedy to stimulate the digestive system, ease colic and stomach discomfort, and minimize gas . It is also used as an emmenagogue, to stimulate and promote menstrual flow in women. Preliminary studies have shown that saffron may be a useful tool in fighting cancer . According to a 1999 study, use of the herb slowed tumor growth and extended lifespan in female rats. Additional human studies have indicated that saffron has powerful antioxidant properties. Two chemical components of saffron extract, crocetin and crocin, reportedly improved memory and learning skills in learning-impaired rats in a Japanese study published in early 2000. These properties indicate that saffron extract may be a useful treatment for neurodegenerative disorders and related memory impairment. Can be drunk either hot or cold. An average recommended dose of saffron decoction is 1/2�1 cup daily.
Saffron should be stored in an airtight container in a cool location away from bright light to maintain its potency. The herb can be frozen. Properly stored saffron can be used for up to two years. A good measure of the herb's freshness and potency is its odor. If the saffron does not have a noticeable pungent smell, it is probably past its peak.
Background Saffron is an herb most people are unlikely to utilize, either for medicinal or culinary purposes, primarily because the material has a justified reputation for being extraordinarily expensive. Bulk quantities of relatively low-grade saffron can reach upwards of $500/pound, while retail costs for small amounts may exceed 10 times that rate. But, avoiding this valuable spice might be unnecessary because of the small quantity needed: in medicinal use, 1-3 grams in decoction, 0.5-1.5 grams ingested as powder, or 30 mg of its dried extract per day is considered adequate in standard applications (described below). For culinary use, just a few strands are sufficient to flavor food (about 2-4 strands per person; there are about 70,000-200,000 strands per pound).
Saffron as a medical herb The medicinal properties attributed to saffron are extensive. Topically, it is applied to improve the skin condition overall and specifically to treat acne. Internally, it is used to improve blood circulation, regulate menstruation, treat digestive disturbance, ease cough and asthmatic breathing, reduce fever and inflammation, calm nervousness, and alleviate depression. In Tibet, saffron is often an ingredient in medicinal incenses; it is considered a tonic for the heart and the nervous system. The active ingredients may be of benefit in inhibiting growth of cancer cells (7-10).
Camphor is used in medicine as a stimulant, a diaphoretic, and an inhalant. Camphor ice is a mixture, containing principally camphor and wax, used for external application. Camphor is practically insoluble in water but soluble in alcohol, ether, chloroform, and other solvents. The alcoholic solution is known as spirits of camphor.
Modern uses include as a plasticizer for cellulose nitrate, as a moth repellent, in embalming, and in fireworks. A form of anti-itch gel currently on the market uses camphor as its active ingredient. Historically it has been used in medicine.
Camphor is readily absorbed through the skin and produces a feeling of cooling similar to that of menthol and acts as slight local anesthetic; however, it is poisonous when ingested and can cause seizures, mental confusion, irritability, and neuromuscular hyperactivity.
Twenty years ago the United States Food and Drug Administration a banded camphor. However despite these changes, camphor remains commonly available in many nonprescription vaporized or topical "cold" medications, topical musculoskeletal anesthetic "rubs" and "cold sore" preparations, though its efficacy is largely unproven. Data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers demonstrate that camphor continues to be a common source of pediatric exposures. A review of the literature reveals persistent reports of toxicity resulting from exposure to relatively small amounts. In the pediatric population, exposure to as little as 500 mg is cited as a cause of mortality. More commonly, 750 to 1000 mg are associated with the development of seizures and death. Currently available products with 10% camphor contain 500 mg in 5 mL.
