(Detox Your Body And Fight Inflammation With Coconut Milk And Turmeric (Recipe))

Although most people opt for coffee or tea to start the day, there are far more beneficial hot brews to boost your energy levels for the day ahead. Some people might recommend a good blend of coconut milk and turmeric.

Have you ever heard of golden milk?

The star of this healing drink is turmeric, a rhizome from the ginger family that gives it a lovely golden hue.

Golden milk is a traditional Ayurvedic drink that has been enjoyed for millennia not only for its characteristically soothing warmth but for its ability to manage inflammation, improve the function of the digestive tract, and liver support.

Turmeric is a spice studied extensively and has been found to have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.

Turmeric’s potential health benefits include:

  • Antiseptic – It destroys harmful bacteria and supports healing of cuts and superficial burns.
  • Analgesic – It reduces swelling and eases the pain, especially arthritic joint pain.
  • Boosts immunity – The phytochemical curcumin in turmeric improves immune system function.
  • Anti-carcinogenic – One study showed a combination of turmeric and black pepper inhibited breast cancer cell growth by 50%.
  • Promotes digestive health – A healthy gut is critical for all bodily functions. Turmeric stimulates the gall bladder to release bile, which is necessary to break down fats.
  • Liver detoxifier – Curcumin supplementation has shown to increase the amount of glutathione enzymes, significantly reducing free radical damage in a study of induced liver damage in rats.
  • Regulates metabolism and weight management – Turmeric changes fat cells from passive to active, which your body will burn easier for energy.
  • High blood pressure – Curcumin supplement along with regular aerobic exercise improves heart function and increases muscle stress tolerance, according to the Journal of Hypertension.
  • Lowers triglycerides – Curcumin regulates low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the liver, blocks its absorption in the digestive system, and prevents oxidation in arterial linings, guarding against cardiovascular disease and hypertension.
  • Memory, brain function, and neurological disorders – The Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology published a study that showed turmeric to improve memory in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Various skin conditions – The fatty acids in turmeric protect against radiation damage and are beneficial for the treatment of psoriasis, vitiligo, and skin cancer.
