Have you heard of this powerful antioxidant-rich and soothing drink?
Golden Milk is creamy and rich in flavor. It is filled to the brim with delicious nutrients and packed with fantastic health benefits. Golden Milk is the perfect drink for the winter!
This beverage has been used traditionally in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Turmeric the golden spice of life and the star of the show is known to be a natural anti-inflammatory. When taken regularly turmeric can effectively and safely support the health of your liver and digestive system. This yellow wonder has many medicinal properties. It is also known to increase clarity and calmness within the mind and body.
The active ingredient in Turmeric is curcumin. This rooted herb is packed with healing power but is not readily absorbed by the digestive system. So, when you’re on the quest to ingest, keep an eye out for these two essential ingredients in your golden goodness.
Black Pepper – Piperine an extract of black pepper increases the bio-availability of curcumin by as much as 2,000 percent
Fat – coconut oil or ghee
* Curcumin is a fat-soluble – so by adding heat and a touch of healthy fat it helps to extract its constituents, making them more available in your body.
If you’re looking to relax your mind, unwind, and fight off the cold winter blues this yellow mellow golden milk is the best way to end your day.
Turmeric Tip: You can easily find turmeric in powdered form. The best quality turmeric will be a very bright yellow-orange. If it’s turned to a browner shade, then you know it’s not very fresh.
I personally recommend reaping the rewards of the whole root.
I battle with arthritis and inflammation…this grounding spice keeps me nice.
