Health Benefits Of Drinking Turmeric Milk

Turmeric milk is a traditional Indian and Ayurvedic beverage that is typically consumed before bed.  Turmeric has a warm, slightly spicy, bold, and earthy flavor. Turmeric milk is a mix of turmeric and warm dairy-free milk along with a pinch of pepper, cinnamon and maple syrup. The warming effect it has on the body puts you right to sleep.

Honey is optional as a sweetener.  I use coconut milk because it is full of healthy fats and contains lauric acid, antimicrobial lipids and capric acid, which have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.

Benefits of Turmeric Milk:
  • Key Ingredients Are Loaded With Antioxidants
  • May Improve Memory and Brain Function
  • Ease arthritis pain, due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties
  • Help the liver detoxify by enhancing liver function
  • Boost blood circulation, and also thins the blood (CAUTION to those already on a blood-thinning medication)
  • Heal and soothe the digestive tract, and even help prevent ulcers due to the antiseptic properties
  • May Reduce Your Risk of Cancer
  • Reduce the pain and fever associated with illness
How to make Turmeric Milk:

Simply pour almond/coconut milk into a small saucepan and bring to a light boil. Whisk to combine turmeric and pinch of pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer for up to 10 minutes. To serve, add honey/maple syrup or a dash of cinnamon.
