One of the most precious spices in the world, saffron comes from the stigmas of a variant of crocus (Crocus sativus). The most valuable of all spices by weight, a little goes a long way and adds a complex taste and golden colour to dishes.

It also brings many health benefits including an ability to help you manage mild depression and support the nervous system. Anxiety and stress are both sleep disruptors, so if they keep you awake at night then weaving saffron in to your diet could help.
