Golden milk has been trending this year for both its great taste and for the health benefits it delivers. This type of drink is an Eastern tradition and in Okinawa, an island in Japan, the tea is a part of everyday life. It’s interesting to note that the population of this island has a lifespan average of 81.2 years, which is one of the longest in the world.
This is one of the most studied herbs and it has been proven that turmeric can support joint and brain health while at the same time reducing inflammation. Drinking golden milk can provide relief from a variety of musculoskeletal ailments. It can also help with sore throats, depression, headaches, congestion, colds and much more.
A lot of cafés in New York and Los Angeles are now serving special brews of golden milk latte as the popularity of this milk continues to grow. It’s a comforting and delicious drink with the turmeric adding a bright, clean flavour that has become irresistible to many.
