not know about you … but when I think tea, infusions I prefer herbs such as chamomile or true teas such as green tea. Of course, I do not think immediately of turmeric, but this kind of earthy gold is the base of an ancient remedy called golden milk tea or turmeric.
It takes a bit of getting used to, but this unusual tea is a staple in our house in the winter. I love to use it in cooking and as an herbal remedy. Especially at this time of year, turmeric is a staple in our house to prevent disease and maintain our strong immune system
Here is why :.
The tea Turmeric: Remedy old
turmeric may not be the first thing you think about putting in tea, but with the spice mixture is a delicious soothing remedy. This tuber is a remedy well known for its benefits including digestion, immune function, liver and even possible protection against some cancers
The curcumin :.
This bright yellow spice contains curcumin (up to 3% by weight), which has been well studied for its benefits. It is believed to stop an enzyme that may be responsible for converting environmental toxins into carcinogens in the body. Turmeric is a popular remedy to help protect the body against the effects of smoking or chewing snuff.
Turmeric can also improve digestion of fats and sugars and help relieve inflammation in the digestive system. It is a remedy for skin-aging and is even used in the mouth to help relieve gum problems.
Of course, turmeric can be added to food and is a good starting point for many spice blends, but those who want to consume it as a remedy often resort to tea turmeric.
What is milk gold?
turmeric tea or milk gold is a great way to get the benefits of turmeric daily. I love to drink this before going to bed because it helps relaxation and helps stimulate the immune system during sleep.
The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that it is safe to cook with turmeric during pregnancy and lactation, but turmeric supplements should not be taken without the advice of a doctor. Since this tea contains turmeric, consult a doctor or midwife before using this is if pregnant, nursing or have a medical condition.

Can I do this with / pecan / almond milk cow
Absolutely ?! I mix it up and make any mixture thereof. It will not be as creamy, but you can even make this recipe with water instead of milk at all. bone broth is another great option for the base and the sweetener may be omitted if broth is used. If milk or broth is not used, consider adding a small amount of some kind of fat (such as butter or coconut oil), increasing absorption.
feeling very brave? Try using Camel milk instead! Several readers also mentioned that reinforces your morning coffee ….
Where do you get turmeric?
I always order more turmeric because I use it in many spice mixtures in beauty recipes and make this tea. Look for one that is organic, non-irradiated and contains curcumin. I have personally ordered it on Amazon (good price and shipping) and Mountain Rose Herbs it (cheaper but shipping is more).

- Pepper (small amount)
- Some kind of fat for the absorption of
can I Omit the honey / maple syrup?
course. I think it helps smooth out the strong flavor of turmeric, but not necessary. You can also use stevia or blood sugar using nutrient-rich molasses to get the benefits.
Is there another way to get the benefits?
Of course! But this is the tastiest, in my opinion. If you are not in tea or unwilling to take the time to drink, simply add the ingredients to any food or drink alone. For example, throw in a little black pepper and turmeric and olive oil on some grilled vegetables to achieve the same thing. A brave reader mentioned that she only makes a paste of turmeric and avocado oil and downs with 2 whole peppercorns.
I have ____ health condition or am pregnant / nursing. Can I take this?
always recommend talking to a doctor before taking any natural remedy. Some sources say that this is fine, because it contains only culinary quantities, but there are contraindications for those with certain conditions or certain medications. Sources say that should be avoided by people with autoimmune problems and others who say they helped autoimmune problems. Talk to someone who knows their situation before making a decision.

small amounts give me my children. Turmeric is a spice after all! They love the taste and love to help do more, but check with your pediatrician if you have any questions or concerns before drinking it.
This stained my accountant / Blender / Cup. What should I do?
I have good and bad news. The good news is that stains are not harmful and fade over time. The bad news is that it will take some time.

Of course! I have made up half a gallon and kept in the refrigerator. I think I like it too cold, but can also be reheated in a small saucepan.

Yes! It is not often available in which we live so I prefer dry, but you can scratch a piece of 1 inch fresh turmeric root in the recipe to achieve the same thing. You may also want to strain using a fine mesh strainer to remove any remaining pulp or pieces.
