The time in-between seasons is known as Ritusandhi, or the joint (sandhi) hinging together the seasons (ritu). Typically lasting about 15 days.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><br></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:400;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre;white-space:pre-wrap;">It is common to experience symptoms of Kapha accumulation in the form of spring allergies, weight gain, water retention and other seasonal imbalances, all peaking in the middle of the spring season.</span></p> <p><br></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:400;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre;white-space:pre-wrap;">Saffron is considered Tridoshic, or balancing to all energies of the human system. It simultaneously aids with detox by flushing toxins out of the body, as well as nutrient assimilation and tissue (Dhatu) formation. Saffron can be enjoyed year round for these benefits, though the transition between spring and summer is especially conducive to gentle detox and dual restoration.</span></p> <p><br></p> <p><br></p>
