Warm Turmeric "Golden Milk"
Turmeric is an Ayurvedic spice, and also a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Antioxidants help combat oxidation from harmful free radicals. I use turmeric for patients often to decrease pain, inflammation and preventation of chronic disease. Turmeric is best absorbed with a small amount of black pepper and a little bit of fat, such as coconut milk. In this special drink it is served as a milk, warm, and mixed with some cinnamon and vanilla for a nice flavor. Try it out!
Tip: Be careful about stains from the yellow color of turmeric, it tends to get everywhere!
Healthy tip: Antioxidants work best to be taken on a regular basis, since we are constantly exposed to harmful free radicals from the environment, pesticides in our food, and general aging.
