Saffron is generally used as a spice in cooking or as an ingredient of Swedish Bitters. The maximum daily dose of saffron is 1.5 grams. Caution: Large doses of saffron can be lethal (see Side Effects below). For medicinal purposes, it is recommended to seek the supervision of a trained physician when using saffron.
No side effects are known at the recommended dosages. However, saffron is highly toxic when taken in larger amounts. Overdose with 5g causes serious side effects including: vomiting, uterine bleeding, bloody diarrhea, haematuria, nose bleeding and several other serious symptoms. At 10 g saffron acts as an abortifacient. The lethal dosage for saffron is 20g.
