I’m always looking for ways to incorporate more turmeric in my diet beyond curries and other South Asian dishes. Golden milk has its roots in Ayurvedic medicine, a 5,000-year-old practice of natural healing.
Turmeric and it’s most potent healing compound, curcumin, are building blocks of good health. It’s ability to fight inflammation in the gut and joints in commonly recognized, but turmeric offers so much more!
Turmeric’s healing powers include promoting healthy circulation, stabilizing cholesterol, supporting liver detoxification, pain relief, skin care, and diabetes prevention and treatment. Mental health is tragically marginalized for which turmeric offers an amazing natural remedy. Studies have provided clinical evidence of curcumin’s success in reducing symptoms of mild depression, just as well as prescription anti-depressants.
“Brewing” takes just a few minutes on the stovetop. After straining, blending the drink is optional, but helps to make it light and frothy.
