Golden Milk is not just a trendy drink, it is a preparation of traditional Indian medicine, known as “choose one“, golden milk. This concoction based on turmeric has spread throughout the world, because it is said to have multiple virtues. Ayurvedic medicine considers golden milk as a balancing and regenerating drink, capable of promoting harmony between body and mind.
Turmeric, the key ingredient in Golden milk, is not only there to give it its golden yellow color. It contains curcumin, an essential component that provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making this drink a valuable ally in the prevention of many diseases. In addition to fighting against cellular aging and oxidative stress, turmeric promotes intestinal well-being and strengthens immune defenses.
However, curcumin has its limitations in powder form. This is where the other ingredients of the drink come into play. Pepper, with its piperine, potentiates the benefits of curcumin. Ginger facilitates absorption and optimizes the action of antioxidants, while milk provides the lipids (fats) necessary for optimal assimilation of curcumin by the body.
Preparing Golden Milk is very simple. For one cup, heat 250 ml of milk of your choice in a saucepan. Add a teaspoon of turmeric powder, a pinch of black pepper and a few slices of fresh ginger. Simmer gently for 5 minutes, making sure to mix well to infuse the flavors. Strain the drink into a cup and enjoy this golden potion. Add a teaspoon of honey if necessary. Golden Milk can also be enjoyed cold.
