By March 14, 2015January 15th, 2024Beverages, Recipes

This golden milk recipe is a healthy, healing drink that soothes your body and reduces inflammation. It’s a delicious morning beverage or have it before bed to help you sleep.

Anti Inflammatory Latte

Turmeric  is a very powerful anti-inflammatory that can safely reduce pain and swelling. It contains a powerful, non-toxic compound called curcumin. Studies found that turmeric’s anti-inflammatory effects are on a par with potent drugs such as hydrocortisone and Motrin, yet none of their side effects.

The fat from the nut milk gives you a huge boost of energy to fuel your brain and body. Having fat in the morning tells your body it’s safe, there’s fuel, you can relax but without the sugar spike. The fat at night soothes your body so you sleep better.

Turmeric is fat-soluble and absorbs into the body better with fats. It has a lot of health benefits – including decreasing inflammation, easing joint discomfort, soothing indigestion and heartburn, boosting immunity, protecting the heart and brain, and lowering cholesterol levels.  Black pepper increases the bioavailability (rate of absorption) of turmeric.
