Have you ever heard the term “Gоldеn milk”?
It’s not a golden liquid, nor it is oil. But it’s actually a delicious and healthy drink, that is very suitable for these cold days and changing weather season, when flu is spreading.
There’s another awesome thing about Golden milk – it is completely vegan and suitable for absolutely everyone!
Here are the ingredients:
- one and a half a cup coconut milk
- one and a half cups unsweetened plain almond milk
- one and a half teaspoon of ground turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 whole cinnamon stick
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
And how to prepare it?
Just add all the ingredients, mix them with a spoon and bring the pot slowly to simmering. Simmer for about 10 minutes while you mix the ingredients with a spoon, and than let it cold off a little bit before tasting this delicious healthy boost.
This drink derives from India – a country known for herbal healing practices and alternative medicine. It has numerous benefits for the whole organism, such as detoxifying effect, anti-inflammatory properties, weight loss, insomnia treatment etc. It can even help with cancer prevention.
All of these benefits are due to the substance curcumin – the primary bio-active substance in turmeric. This substance has poor bio-availability by itself, so, to be properly absorbed by our organism, it needs special formulations along. This polyphenol has the ability to increase the amount of antioxidants the organism normally produces. That’s the main reason why Golden milk helps prevent and also cure flu, cough and other similar diseases.
One of the most amazing properties of curcumin is the pain relief ability, especially in the joints, which makes the Golden milk a magic cure for osteoarthritis.
Golden milk also has a calming effect, which helps improve the sleeping cycle, as well as with cases of depression and anxiety.
It helps lose those extra pounds as well! Why? Well, mostly because it makes you feel quite full, while on the same time, one cup of the drink has just 96 calories, in which there are only 8 grams of carbohydrates! Amazing, isn’t it?
So there it is. The secret of the Golden milk.
Pour yourself a cup and have a good night rest tonight!
