Abstract

Crocus sativus is a member of iridaceae family and its use in health manage¬ment is in practice since ancient time. This study was designed through the search engines such as Pub Med, Scopus and Google Scholar. Saffron has accompanied all civilizations, whether for its culinary role, for its quality of dye or its ancestral virtues rooted in folk medicine. Different parts of Crocus sativus, such as stamen and corolla have been employed as a good source of antimicrobial agents. Cancer is one of the most feared diseases globally and there has been a sustained rise in its incidence in both developing and developed countries. Many common Indian spices and herbs in Indian ayurvedic medicine such as ginger, turmeric, cumin, basil, and saffron are known to have anticancer potential. Saffron is the dried stigmas of Crocus sativus L. plant. It consists of about 150 components out of which the more powerful phytochemicals are Crocin, Crocetin and Safranal. These carotenoids appear to suppress cell growth in neoplastic cells and offer direct protection against chemotherapy-induced DNA damage.

Key Words
