The power of Golden Milks from India
I was introduced to "Golden Milks" in India when I was 12 years old. My mom and I were sipping on this exotic yellow drink almost every day (that we refer to as the "Coffee" of India), enjoying it's spicy vanilla taste and not once contemplating the health benefits. We also found the main ingredient of the milk, Turmeric, in many Indian dishes. Only many years later, I found out that turmeric is a total health boost and started drinking Golden Milks with ginger & turmeric when facing some lingering digestive issues. And of course : it worked! within a few days my nausea and bloating disappeared after months of trying different diet habits.
Health benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric's main active compound, a phytochemical called Curcumin, is a safe and effective natural way to reduce inflammation and prevent and treat disease. And it is not just a trend: the use of this root dates back to as far as 1700 BC. Curcumin has been especially known in helping with digestive disorders such as gas, bloating and inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), due to its anti-inflammatory properties. But, research shows there are many more amazing benefits of Turmeric!
Here are some more health benefits of Turmeric:
Some studies show that turmeric has anti-cancerous properties, specifically for breast, bowel, stomach, and skin cancer.
2) Improves heart health
By lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, turmeric has the potential to improve overall heart health and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease or even heart attacks.
3) Fights Viruses
Curcumin has the ability to enhance antibody responses, helping the body to fight viruses. People with Covid19 might benefit from Turmeric supplements.
4) Anti-aging overall health boost
Turmeric is full of antioxidants that neutralize free radicals in the body. Free radicals are waste substances produced by cells as the body processes food and reacts to the environment. If the body cannot process and remove free radicals efficiently, oxidative stress is the result, which leads to diseases and premature aging. Adding Turmeric to your diet can therefor benefit your overall health and keep you young!.
How to use Turmeric to improve health
These benefits are so amazing that I have been drinking Golden Milks ever since I discovered and experienced all their health boost qualities. But: it's not enough to just buy some turmeric powder from a Toko and sprinkle it on your food if you want to use it for health related issues. The body does not absorb curcumin (which is the key compound for a health boost) that easily into the body. When looking for a turmeric supplement that has a real impact, make sure it is organic and also has pepper added to the mix. Pepper enhances curcumin's absorption in the body by up to 2,000%, so combining the two spices magnifies their effects.
