Spices 101: Saffron

The most expensive spice in the world, saffron contains both crocin and safranal – two compounds known for protecting mood-boosting serotonin and dopamine in the brain. It’s also one of the best blood purifiers around and may prevent anxiety, insomnia, and memory loss.


Why We Love Saffron:

Saffron is full of vitamins and naturally occurring minerals: ⁣

  • Crocin⁣
  • Safranal
  • Manganese⁣
  • Vitamin C⁣
  • Magnesium⁣
  • Iron⁣
  • Potassium⁣
  • Vitamin B6⁣

Research shows Saffron can act as a/an:⁣

  • Nutrient-assimilator⁣
  • Tissue-building⁣
  • Toxin-flusher ⁣
  • Cancer-cell killer⁣
  • Serotonin and dopamine-booster
  • Memory and learning-booster⁣
  • Aphrodisiac

All these benefits kind of make that steep price tag seem worth it… But don’t worry, you can get it in our Happy Honey and Kitchari Blends with Benefits without that added cost!



We all have the power to turn our everyday food into superfood: just add spice.

Spices have been a hot commodity for thousands of years. Literally. At times, salt has ranked more valuable than gold. Cultures all over the world have turned to dried seeds and roots, cracked, ground, or cooked whole, to preserve their foods, strengthen their reserves, and nourish and heal their bodies.

At Countertop, we use the power of spices like turmeric, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves, and more, to help you cook delicious food with maximum health in minimum time.
