Serres is a city situated in a fertile plain at an elevation of about 70m northeast of the Strymon river, home to the Department of Physical Education and Sport Science of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Technological Educational Institute of Central Macedonia composed of the School of Technological Applications, the School of Management and Finance and the School of Graphic Arts and Design, with at least 10,000 Greek and international students.

Because of its analgesic and soothing properties, saffron has been used since antiquity for food for its flavor, aroma and coloring properties, as well as for folk medicine for the treatment of certain diseases for centuries. The properties of the saffron could be utilized as a potential therapeutic agent for many diseases as evidenced by various biomedical studies. The interest in biological effects and possible medical applications of saffron has increased, especially those based on cytotoxic, anti-cancer and anti-neoplastic properties. The main biological activity of saffron is based on its high antioxidant capacity. In fact, the antioxidant property of saffron is well known and widely studied, as this property is responsible for many of its biomedical features. The extracts of the saffron exhibit remarkable intracellular antioxidant activity by binding and purifying the toxic residues of peroxidation products. Another famous brand of saffron comes from another city of Macedonia, Kozani.

Superfoods Agriculture in Greece: In modern days, the new farmers still involve in traditional farming or cultivation of organic products (which certainly includes the use of ecofarming methods and new practices in bioculture), and the cultivation of the most commonly known products that the Greek land offers; however many Greeks are willing to take risks and experiment not only with the farming of rare varieties in superfoods – or even more innovative products like the white pearls caviar of snails, but also with the incorporation of innovative methods such as biodynamic farming and modern technology. There is a growing number of “success stories” in agricultural entrepreneurship which involves Greeks who decided to experiment with new methods and worked restlessly in order to produce quality products and contribute to a new wave of “sophisticated entrepreneurship” in the Greek agricultural sector in Greece.
Pioneers in biodynamic cultivation switching organic farming to biodynamic, steadily making brands known in Greece and abroad.
Biodynamic cultivation is a sophisticated bio-cultivation method in which no chemicals or fertilizers are used, so plants are influenced not just by soil and water but also from the cosmos” (meaning the climate, the sun, the moon, and their invisible components). Products that have been farmed according to biodynamic principles carry their international certification, which means that they have also been certified according to European regulations 834/2007 and 889/2008 for bioculture and are also considered of superior quality among consumers.
The Greek superfoods is the new gold in our country yet something new to anticipate more in the near future, in terms of knowledge, profit and livelihood.
Fight any prejudice and enjoy superfoods from the Greek land, to turn your medical condition immediately to the best one.
