How To Made A Golden Milk

What is golden milk? It’s not actually milk at all, at least not in the #dairy sense. The basis of #goldenmilk is a combination of the warming (and golden-colored) turmeric spice along with coconut milk and/or coconut oil (good saturated fats that everyone needs).

Researchers have found a number of different mechanisms of action for curcumin (active ingredient of turmeric), as to why curcumin appears to be such potent medicine is because it can:

  • Modulate about 700 of your genes
  • Positively modulate more than 160 different physiological pathways
  • Make your cells’ membranes more orderly
  • Affect signaling molecules such as the inflammatory molecules

Hence, golden milk is a beverage worth trying. So, how-to make it?

Golden Milk

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon Golden Paste
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • Raw honey [or stevia] to taste (optional)
  • Pinch cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a stainless steel pot, gently heat, but do not boil, 2 cups of milk with 1 teaspoon of golden paste.
  2. A whisk is helpful to fully mix the paste into the milk.
  3. Add optional vanilla, honey [or stevia], and/or cinnamon.
  4. Enjoy!

So, what if you sip on golden milk every day?

Ever-expanding clinical body of studies shows that curcumin may help:

  • Support healthy cholesterol levels
  • Prevent low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation (= reducing the so-called bad cholesterol)
  • Inhibit platelet aggregation
  • Suppress thrombosis and myocardial infarction
  • Suppress symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes
  • Suppress symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Suppress symptoms of multiple sclerosis
  • Suppress symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Inhibit HIV replication
  • Suppress tumor formation
  • Enhance wound healing
  • Protect against liver damage
  • Increase bile secretion
  • Protect against cataracts
  • Protect against pulmonary toxicity and fibrosis
  • and lots more!
