What Is Golden Milk?
Golden milk is also known as turmeric milk. It's a vibrant blend of fresh turmeric powder, milk, and other spices including ground black pepper. The milk mixture is often blended with tea leaves to create a healthy tea with potent benefits. Some of the health benefits of turmeric tea include decreased inflammation, improved memory, and lower risk of heart disease. The tea boasts anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce symptoms of joint pain and reduce the risk of serious disease and health conditions. Most of these health benefits have been attributed to the active ingredient in turmeric known as curcumin.
Turmeric tea traces its roots to India where the spice plays an integral part in the Asian cuisine. The spice is commonly ground up with coconut oil or olive oil and turned into a thick paste. The golden paste can then be used in baked goods and fried meals. The tea is also wildly popular in Indian Ayurvedic medicine where it is used as a home remedy for a variety of ailments.
