Have you tried turmeric milk yet? I've been making turmeric milk for many years, even before I went keto. Back then I used to drink it with honey which I now skip or substitute with stevia or Erythritol.
So what is golden milk? Turmeric, which is the main ingredient, gives this milk the vibrant golden colour and is responsible for its several health benefits. Turmeric is a powerful adaptogen and just like ginseng, green tea, maca or ashwagandha, it can help improve your health in several ways. Some of the beneficial effects of turmeric are:
- Curcumin, that gives turmeric its vibrant colour, has anti-inflammatory effects. Inflammation is the main cause of heart disease and a contributor to many common Western diseases.
- It has antioxidant properties protecting our body from free radical damage
- Can help prevent and even treat cancer
- Immune boosting properties (it's perfect for this time of year!)
- Helps relieve muscle pain
- Improves digestion
- Has anti-stress and anti-ageing effects
- Is beneficial for endocrine and neuroendocrine systems. It can improve autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto's or rheumatoid arthritis.
I don't think that golden milk is to everyone's taste - some say it's an acquired taste - but I totally love it. It's great any time of the year, both iced and hot. Turmeric in now in season and I'll be sharing even more recipes using this amazing herb so stay tuned :-)
