Anti-Inflammatory Golden Milk is an important recipe for anyone fighting sickness or injury. The Turmeric is the vital component of this drink, and the combination of ingredients tastes really good!
This is a simple recipe, and when it comes to a medicinal cocktail, I like simple.
Just six ingredients:
- freshly ground black pepper
Just combine everything in a small saucepan, and whisk until nice and warm. Pour it into your favorite mug, and sip it while sitting in a cozy, relaxing chair!
I’ve gotta admit. I was scared of the taste of turmeric, but with the addition of cinnamon and honey, this drink is super tasty!
Anti-inflammatory Benefits. YES please.
I’ve been living with chronic pain for more than half of my life. So instead of relying solely on ibuprofen, I like to mix up this natural Anti-inflammatory Golden Milk for a change of pace. I’ve really just begun drinking it, so I’m hoping that it helps. It can’t hurt, in my opinion.
Curcumin is the ingredient in Turmeric that provides the anti-inflammatory benefit. It’s helpful to take it with black pepper for better absorption into the bloodstream, which is why freshly ground black pepper is an ingredient in my recipe.
While acute (short-term) inflammation can be beneficial to help the body fight foreign invaders, it can become a problem when it becomes chronic (or long-term). Turmeric can be helpful in fighting many of these chronic conditions, including heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, depression, and various other degenerative conditions.
Due to my mother having Alzheimer’s, my sisters and I have been taking a turmeric supplement as well. I order mine from Amazon and here’s what I take…Turmeric Curcumin Capsules.
The jury is still out as to whether it is working or not. 🙂
