What is Golden Milk?

Golden Milk has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for its anti-inflammatory benefits. The golden hue of this healing drink comes from the rich color of turmeric, the main ingredient in Golden Milk.

Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric contains curcuminoids, which have anti-oxidant components. Turmeric also contains polyphenols, which have anticancer and vascular health benefits. Quelling inflammation with this comforting drink can be an excellent addition to your nighttime ritual. This soothing, warming beverage with the scents of cinnamon and ginger helps me wind down and get ready for sleep.

Consider that India, where turmeric is widely and regularly consumed, has a much lower level of Alzheimer’s Disease than the US. The cancer-preventive and neuro-protective components of turmeric make this delicious, exotic root very appealing. It’s an anti-inflammatory powerhouse and deserves a seat at your anti-inflammatory healing table.
