Saffron is a popular spice among Iranians and even some people use of saffron as a medicinal plant.

However, it is not bad to know about some of the effects of saffron during pregnancy.

It is commonly found in foods like Tah-Chin, dessert and saffron ice cream, but it is also widely found in cosmetics such as lotions and creams that help brighten the face.
