Turmeric Tonic Tea

This is an amazing liver detoxifier and stomach acid regulator!

Cayenne helps to ward off colds, sinus infections and sore throats. This beverage is most soothing when drunk warm. It is also great for stimulation of digestion, liver detox, and is an anti-inflammatory. Turmeric has anti-cancer nutrients as well!

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp powdered turmeric (or about 1 inch fresh turmeric, finely grated)
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • raw honey to taste
  • juice of 1 lemon or 1- 2 Tbsp unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
  • Warm water (not boiling)

Directions

Pour warm water over ingredients in a mug. If you like the taste, pour a full mug and sip it. If you don’t like the taste, just use less water, let it cool slightly and toss it back.

The Many Benefits of Golden Milk

Golden milk, called “haldi (turmeric) ka doodh (milk)” is an old Ayurvedic drink and recipe used throughout Asia and India. It is essentially milk (dairy or plant-based) warmed with turmeric, a powerhouse spice with multiple documented health benefits.

The essential recipe is simply milk (one cup) with turmeric (¼ to ½ teaspoon) brought to a simmer over low to medium heat. Along with turmeric, additional ingredients such as honey, cinnamon, ginger and cardamom can be added — many like a pinch of fresh black pepper as well.

Fans of golden milk say that it aids sleep by soothing digestion, fights colds and flu, and lifts low moods. Researchers are cracking the code on why this simple drink has been so popular for centuries in India, and is gaining fans in the West. The turmeric, loaded with a phytochemical called “curcumin,” is the catalyst for golden milk benefits.
