Answer

The sentence discusses the belief of “some ancient cultures” that colors were “very powerful.” If “some societies” believed that red objects were capable of “restoring good health” simply because they were red, it makes sense to say that those societies believed that the color red “had a salutary effect,” or could cure ailments and promote health.
