Here at the PainRelief4Life Blog, we are always ranting and raving about the benefits of turmeric root. I was recently transported back to my childhood the other day when I came across the recipe for golden milk (better known as turmeric or “haldi” milk). My husband and I actually swapped this “tea” as a replacement for our regular afternoon coffee ritual and it was a sure hit! The list of ingredients taste as enticing as they sound – turmeric powder, warm cinnamon, a smidgen of fresh ginger, honey, coconut oil, freshly ground black pepper, whole milk. You can also make this with coconut/almond milk as well. Blitz it all together with a high speed blender and then heat it on the stove top. The health benefits of this “tea” are amazing.
Turmuric is an anti-inflammatory spice that has "shown therapeutic potential against a number of human diseases," including cancer and Alzheimer's. Because turmuric decreases inflammation in the body, it helps with gas, bloating, and digestive discomfort. Studies have shown it helps people with their weight, depression and allows for better sleep and improved brain health. If you live in a colder region and are suffering from flu and colds, drink this golden turmeric golden milk. Bottom line, if you have something going on, try turmeric milk - it does the body good in so many ways.
