DIY Golden latte mix

Golden latte refers to a warm beverage made with turmeric (a spice) and some sort of milk and/or coconut oil. Turmeric is best known as a major ingredient in curries; it’s what gives curry that yellow color. But turmeric has made a name for itself as a medicinal spice that for centuries has been valued for its potent healing properties.

Turmeric is a root that contains curcumin, an antioxidant rich polyphenol known for its anti-inflammatory and cancer fighting benefits.

Other health benefits also include the following:

  • Can help detox the liver
  • Boosts blood circulations
  • Digestion
  • May help level blood sugar
  • Serves as a natural painkiller
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Clarifies the skin
  • Protects heart and brain

Furthermore, turmeric is also packed with nutrients such as fiber, calcium, vitamins and minerals. However, always make sure to check with your health practitioner before taking large quantities of turmeric because it may increase the risk of bleeding. Liver or gallbladder problems might contraindicate the use of turmeric.
