Saffron is used for its medicinal, coloring and flavoring properties.During pregnancy, it is used for the improvement of digestion and appetite.It is found to be extremely beneficial for providing relief from gas and acidity related problems.It is a very popular answer to many skin problems, like dry skin, enhancing and lightening the skin tone. Saffron is considered as a blood purifier and anti-inflammatory properties, so it should only be used in small quantities. being a blood purifier helps in increasing the oxygen content of the blood so aiding in the overall health and well being during pregnancy.

Pregnant women can drink milk with 3 or 4 strands of saffron added to it. It helps in improving the digestion of the baby as well as affecting the baby’s skin development. Kesar should only be started after the first trimester of pregnancy. Never exceed the amount of saffron to be taken with milk. Just a few strands are enough. Too much of saffron can lead to contractions as saffron tends to stimulate the uterus.

Kesar is a spice that comes from the flower of the saffron(Crocus sativus). It actually refers to the stalk, stigma and the flower which are dried and used in cooking as a seasoning and colouring agent. It is the world' s most expensive spice by weight. It gives a nice colour to food and is mainly used in sweet dishes.
