Why Golden Milk Is Making Big In The Health And Fitness Industry
In the world today, terminal illnesses are rampant. As such, most health enthusiasts are seeking new natural alternatives to combat mortality. People are now looking for natural and organic foods to restore their health. But with the abundance of processed and highly-induced chemical foods on the market, it is hard to ensure that what one eats is natural and organic. Sneaky food manufacturers are putting some unhealthy ingredients under the disguise of a “healthy” foods and drinks. One notable example for that is morning beverages. Different types of coffees and teas are still laden with ingredients that are not healthy for the body. Therefore, there is need to look for alternatives.
If you are on the lookout to see some affordable yet healthy-to-drink beverages, we suggest that you try golden milk. As the health enthusiasts claim, golden milk is one of the superfoods (or shall we say super drinks?) that can be used as healthy alternative morning beverages.
Let us investigate the features and the benefits of golden milk.
Where Does it Come From?
Just from the name alone, we can say that this type of milk is indeed intriguing. How does milk become golden, anyway? It turns out that golden milk contains a healthy ingredient that we are all familiar of— turmeric. Turmeric is widely used in India because of its astounding health benefits as well as its therapeutic activities. The great thing about this milk is that it is non-dairy, so lactose intolerant people can safely consume it. The turmeric ingredient in the golden milk can help with your:
- Common colds
- Throat infections
- Liver problems
- Wounds and sores
Promising Health Benefits of Golden Milk
The turmeric ingredients found in golden milk can improve your health by:
- Lowering blood pressure.
- Improving skin conditions.
- Regulating your body metabolism.
- Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
- Improving digestion.
- Boosting immunity.
- Reducing inflammation.
If you want to boost the turmeric’s powerful properties, we recommend that you incorporate black peeper into your golden milk. The black pepper not only enhances the taste, but it also boosts the absorption of turmeric in your bloodstream.
How is Golden Milk Made?
Fortunately, you cannot find a commercial golden milk in the market yet (and we sure hope it will stay that way). So you can be 100% sure that it’s all natural, safe, and healthy. Apart from that, it is incredibly easy and quick to make it! You only need three main key ingredients: coconut milk, turmeric, and black pepper. Of course, you can also make some variations such as soy, almond, oat, rice, and golden cashew milk. You can also add some spices such as cinnamon to enhance the flavor.
Golden Milk Recipe
- 2 cups of your favorite milk (rice, almond, oat, dairy, etc.)
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
- A pinch of black pepper
Heat the milk gently in a saucepan before adding the rest of the ingredients and simmering gently for 3 – 4 minutes.
Golden Milk Powder Recipe
- 1 cup turmeric powder
- 1/2 cup cinnamon powder
- 2 teaspoons of black pepper
Simply mix the powders together and store in a jar, then add two teaspoons to two cups of warm milk anytime you fancy a drink. Add ginger, cayenne pepper or sugar/syrup to taste.
Golden Milk Paste Recipe
- 1 cup turmeric
- 1 cup water
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 10 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
Cook the water, turmeric, and black pepper over low heat for 10 minutes, until it forms a thick paste. Then, whisk together with coconut oil and store in a glass jar. Keep refrigerated.
Heat one teaspoon of paste along with two cups of milk for quick and easy golden milk. Whisk if necessary.
Who should Drink Turmeric Golden Milk?
We recommend that you try drinking golden milk if you:
- Suffer from stomach aches.
- Have skin problems.
- Are trying to manage your weight
- Struggle with high cholesterol
- Struggle with high blood pressure
- Want to boost your immunity against coughs and colds
But if you are pregnant or you suffer from a family history health condition, it may be best to consult with your doctor first. Give it a shot, and you’ll be surprised at how much health benefits you will get!
