Super Anti-inflammatory Golden Milk
For centuries turmeric has been used by many cultures for medicinal and preventative reasons.
It is now being taken seriously by our western scientists and there is some hefty research to show why you should take it seriously too.
According to the AAPS Journal article, Therapeutic Roles of Curcumin: Lessons Learned from Clinical Trials curcumin which is derived from the spice commonly known as turmeric has shown promising effects that have been observed in patients with pro-inflammatory diseases including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, ulcers, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel disease, gastric inflammation, psoriasis, renal conditions, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, and many more that I did not mention.
It has also been shown to have protective properties against hepatic conditions, chronic arsenic exposure, and alcohol intoxication.
And.. When it tastes this good we should all be including it in our diets on a regular if not daily basis.
There are all sorts of recipes out there, many of them requiring you to make a paste first but in all reality, if it is not easy I am not going to do it. At least not on a regular or daily basis.
So here is my version that is very similar to chai tea but much better in my honest opinion.
