See What Drinking Turmeric Golden Milk Before Bed Will Do T0 Your Body
If you have any health condition or malady it may be time to jump on the “turmeric bandwagon”. Turmeric is the yellow spice that gives Indian, Chinese, and other Asian curry dishes their yellow color. Turmeric has been used medicinally in India and other parts of Southeast Asia for centuries, but it has only been since the 20th century it has been highly regarded for its healing properties in Western culture.
The main healing ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Curcumin is what gives turmeric it anti-inflammatory properties, which is the key to alleviating so many diseases and conditions. It also contains antioxidants such as Vitamin A and C.
Some conditions that may benefit from turmeric:
• Digestive disorders
• Liver disorders
• Skin disorders- acne, rashes
• High cholesterol
• Wound that are difficult to heal
• Alzheimer’s and cognitive problems
Of course, if you enjoy curry dishes, that is one way to get your curry. If you are not a fan of Indian or Asian food you can also take supplements or drink turmeric tea. A healthful and delicious way to get a daily dose of turmeric, however, is to enjoy a comforting cup of Turmeric Golden Milk before going to bed.
Recipe for Turmeric Golden Milk:
1. ½ Cup Turmeric powder
2. 1 ½ tsp ground black pepper
3. 5 Tbsps. Extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
1. 1 tsp. organic coconut oil
2. 1 Cup of almond, coconut, or other milk
3. Raw organic honey to taste
1. Add just one tsp of the Turmeric paste to all the other ingredients.
2. Heat in a saucepan over medium heat. Do not boil!
3. Put into a coffee cup or mug and enjoy!
Please note the importance and synergy of all the ingredients. The black pepper greatly assists in the absorption of the turmeric. Almond or coconut milk is suggested to avoid lactose intolerance and other dairy concerns. However, if you can drink cow’s or goat’s milk, it does have an additional enzyme when served warm that may help you sleep. If you opt for the honey, try to obtain local organic honey. Local honey is the best for your immune system.
You may find yourself sleeping better immediately after consuming the Turmeric Golden Milk before bed, especially if you are drinking it in place of your glass of wine or other alcoholic bedtime beverage. To notice significant health improvements you do need to commit to the ritual for at least a week or two.
After that period, people do report marked improvements in their digestion with no more bloating or gas. Arthritic and joint pain may also subside, and acne, and other skin conditions have been noted to improve.
Many people also report, though it took a while to get used to the taste, now they love it.
Side effects and contraindications:
Drinking a cup of the golden milk, having a curry dish, or even taking turmeric supplements is considered safe for just about anyone. However, pregnant women should not take medicinal doses of turmeric. So, it is fine to have that lamb curry but don’t take supplements if you are or think you might be pregnant. Also, if you are on any medicine to control blood clotting you should not be taking turmeric supplements.
The Turmeric Golden Milk drink is not only healthful, but simple to make, affordable, and delicious. Why not incorporate this ritual into your bedtime routine and see how it improves your health!
