Saffron: The Age-Old Panacea in a New Light is the first book to detail the functions and effect of saffron in medicinal situations. This book explores the medicinal aspects of saffron and the effect saffron imparts on various diseases of the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, digestive system, locomotor system, urogenital system, eye, skin, and immune system, along with their mechanism of action. This perpetual bulb found mainly in Asia and Europe, Iran, India and Mediterranean countries has been shown to reduce seizures, delay convulsions, and as a neuroprotective agent against cerebral ischemia, brain damage, and Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

In addition, it also reduces depression, hypnosis and anxiety and enhances learning and memory skills.
