Have you heard of or already tried the amazing taste of the golden milk?
This multi-purposed mixture is a delicious drink that combines the miraculous powers of turmeric and coconut milk and is an effective natural remedy in the treatment of various health issues.
The golden milk has been used in many cultures for millennia, and it improves health in countless different ways.
According to Alina Petre, MS, RD (CA):
“Golden milk — also known as turmeric milk — is an Indian drink that has been gaining popularity in Western cultures. This bright yellow beverage is traditionally made by warming up cow’s or plant-based milk with turmeric and other spices, such as cinnamon and ginger.
It’s touted for its many health benefits and often used as an alternative remedy to boost immunity and stave off illness
The key ingredient in golden milk is turmeric, a yellow spice popular in Asian cuisine, which gives curry its yellow color. Curcumin, the active component in turmeric, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries due to its strong antioxidant properties.”
Turmeric is one of the most potent natural substances, with over 150 medicinal properties. It fights inflammation in the body, strengthens the immune system, and treats various conditions and diseases.
On the other hand, coconut milk is a rich source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which fight inflammation, boost muscle growth, and help weight loss. It is also high in healthy fats and electrolytes, which improve gut health and improve digestion.
Their combination offers multiple health benefits, including:
- Soothes arthritis pain and fights inflammation
- Activates over 160 individual physiological functions
- Lowers bad cholesterol and high blood pressure
- Improves memory
- Treats brain disorders
- Accelerates learning
- Prevents free-radical damage
Now, here is how to prepare it and reap its benefits:
- 1/8 tsp turmeric
- 1 cup coconut milk
- a pinch of black pepper
- 1 cup water
- raw, organic honey to taste
Heat all the ingredients in a saucepan, stir, and bring to simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Sweeten with honey, and drink it three times daily.
