Golden Milk seems to be all the rage at the moment, but is the latest health trend really worth trying? We’ve decided to get to the bottom of this craze and put Golden Milk to the test to see if it’s everything it’s lived up to be.
Turmeric has been used traditionally in natural medicine for thousands of years. One of its
primary active components is curcumin, commonly known for its anti-inflammatory and
antioxidant properties. Turmeric is often used in meals such as curries and is often hard to
include in daily diets due to its acquired taste.
Some of turmerics other benefits include:
● Improved immunity
● Anti-nausea treatment
● Increased liver health
● Increased metabolism
● Possibly the prevention of some forms of cancer
Golden milk is the perfect way to include turmeric in your daily diet, especially in the cold winter months. I enjoy mine in the morning but many people enjoy it before bed as it helps with digestion.
● 1 cup of milk (or coconut milk)
● 1 tsp turmeric
● ½ tsp cinnamon
● 1 tsp of honey
● Dash of black pepper
1. Whisk all the ingredients together until well combined.
2. Heat mixture in a small saucepan for 5 mins or until hot not boiling.
3. Drink immediately and enjoy!
Tip: Add a dash of black pepper to your golden milk you increase the body’s absorption of turmeric by 2000%!
