Alright… I’ll say it.
I’m a trend follower and I finally broke down and decided to make some golden milk.
Just to see what all the hype was about.
And I hate to say it, but I actually really loved it. And I’m addicted.
Something about drinking a warm beverage with a golden hue that is FULL of goodness and health benefits, just makes you feel instantly healthier and fancy AF.
During the Summer months, my yummy golden milk will be poured over ice, and placed into my hot pink tumbler so I can sip on it as I start my day. (This might even replace my morning cold brew).
Let’s discuss the benefits:
+ Helps build up your immunity: The antiviral and antibacterial properties of turmeric can help fight infections.
+ Gives you relief when you have a cough or a cold: Turmeric increases mucus production which naturally flushes out the microbes that have managed to get a foothold in the respiratory tract.
+ Great for digestive problems: Golden milk improves digestion, helps relieve gas and bloating as well as heartburn. Turmeric also increases the flow of bile, which helps in fat digestion.
+ Cleanses the liver: Turmeric prevents and reverses liver cirrhosis and fatty liver, and the detoxifying action of turmeric reduces the impact of injuries to liver tissue by toxic substances such as environmental pollutants and chemical additives in processed foods.
+ It’s a great sleep aid
+ It has anti-cancer properties: The curcumin in turmeric has been shown to kill cancer cells and prevent their spread to other areas. Drinking turmeric milk regularly may help prevent malignant growths as well as stop their progress in the early stages.
+ Purifies the blood: Toxins in the blood are the underlying causes of many abnormal skin conditions and other diseases. Turmeric helps the elimination of blood impurities by improving the function of the liver which is entrusted with the duty of identifying these toxins and finding a way to eliminate them. Moreover, the diuretic effect of turmeric helps flush out these toxins through urine.
+ Aids in a glowing skin: Turmeric has been used externally as a beauty aid because of the visible changes it produces on the skin. It makes the skin smooth, removes fine lines and other signs of premature aging, reduces acne, and lightens scars. Internal use further enhances these effects and makes the skin clear of liver spots, rosacea and skin eruptions. If golden milk is drunken daily, it’s even been known to help people suffering from eczema.
+ Great for headaches: The blood thinning effect of turmeric is well known, and the thinning of blood naturally improves blood circulation, so people suffering from frequent headaches and migraines should definitely drink golden milk often.
So you see, this should be a daily beverage staple in your life.
