Spice up your life with this anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant Ancient Indian Golden Milk

Turmeric is widely used in Indian recipes. It is the main spice in curry and is arguably the most powerful herb at fighting and potentially reversing diseases. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicine use turmeric in the treatment of liver disease, skin problems, respiratory and gastrointestinal ailments, sprained muscles, joint pains and general wound healing. Besides, turmeric offers many health benefits since it has both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
Curcumin in turmeric has the ability to modulate genetic activity and expression — both by destroying cancer cells and by promoting healthy cell function. It also promotes anti-angiogenesis, meaning it helps prevent the development of additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth.

Drink this delicious golden milk in the morning and before bed for 2 weeks and you will see the difference!

In fact, a number of studies have even reported that using curcumin is more advantageous than certain prescription drugs.

Health Benefits of Turmeric :-
- Anti-inflammatory drugs
- Anti-depressants (Prozac)
- Chemotherapy
- Anti-coagulants (Aspirin)
- Pain killers
- Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
- Arthritis medications
- Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
- Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
- Steroids

Now, what is golden milk? This golden milk is a combination of turmeric spice (golden color!) along with milk and/or coconut milk/oil (depending on individual's preference). One cup of this Golden Milk has the potential to provide you with a healthy dose of this "spice of life". Taking turmeric milk daily is also a great way for general body detox and it helps in blood purification and liver detox too. Blood impurities can lead to sever health problems and turmeric milk is a great way to combat it. Turmeric is said to help those with Alzheimer’s disease by slowing its progress and lowers risk of various types of cancer.
Okay, let's go to prepare this super easy healthy Golden Milk.
Ingredients :- 
- 1 cup of fresh milk/coconut milk (I used fresh milk)
- 1 tbsp of turmeric powder or one-half inch fresh turmeric thinly sliced (I used turmeric powder)
- 1 tsp of grated fresh ginger (optional)
- 4 cardamon pods - crushed or cut into pieces(optional)
- a sprinkle of black pepper

Method :
1) Heat up milk in a pot or saucepan over medium heat.

2) Add turmeric, ginger and cardamon pods.

3) Keep stirring to prevent the milk from scorching at the bottom of the pot.

4) Once small bubbles begin to form, add in black pepper.

5) Stir and mix well. Off the heat.

6) Serve warm.
