We all have our bedtime rituals. Some people go for a long walk, or practice bedtime meditation, or get a drink of water, take a cold shower, and put on their dinosaur pajamas. Or at least I do.
But one very important thing I started to do after I was encouraged to by an Ayurvedic practitioner was to start drinking the golden milk 2 hours before bed. The question is, what is the golden milk ?
Important ingredients of golden milk are black pepper and turmeric, whose main compound – curcumin, a polyphenol from the Curcuma plant has some series antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory kick to it.
The combination of black pepper and turmeric makes your body able to take even more of it.
My experience with golden milk is amazing.
- Your brain is going to be even brainer than before!
We all want to think that we are pretty smart, but golden milk increase our brain game 100%! Turmeric boosts our memory, improves and helps function and information recall.
- Your colon will not be so hit-or-miss.
Is your digestive system more like “angry”? The golden milk can improve your digestive track! You will not be so gassy.
Drinking the golden milk constantly helps you clean the insides. I can guarantee that you will feel better! Turmeric is able to help boost the liver’s overall health, and detox your body more effectively.
The golden milk helps improve your immune system and prevents you from getting sick. I really recommend you try it, and I’m sure that you won’t be able to stop drinking it. The benefits are huge. You just have to pay more attention to you and your health. Keep your body safe and healthy!
Let’s see how to make it. You have to make a turmeric paste.
- ½ a cup of filtered water
- ¼ a cup of organic turmeric powder
- ½ teaspoon of organic ground pepper.
Take a small pot and mix all the ingredients together. Stir everything over medium heat. The mix will become a paste. Let it chill in the fridge.
After that, make the milk:
- 1 teaspoon of organic coconut oil
- ¼ teaspoon of turmeric pasta
- 1 cup of almond milk
- Organic, raw, unfiltered honey for taste.
You should mix all the ingredients together over medium heat, except the honey. You shouldn’t allow it to boil. Adding a bit of honey will give it a new taste and we recommend you to drink it as soon as it’s cool enough.
