Milk, Saffron and Raw Honey Remedy

Milk is a white liquid produced by the mammary glands of mammals. It is the primary source of nutrition for infant mammals (including humans who breastfeed) before they are able to digest other types of food. Early-lactation milk contains colostrum, which carries the mother's antibodies to its young and can reduce the risk of many diseases. Cow's milk has long been associated with good health, making it one of the most consumed beverages throughout the United States and Europe.
