The golden “turmeric” milk

Why we should all be drinking turmeric milk!
When I think of turmeric I think of tasty Asian cooking/curry’s and not for drinking, after reading up about the benefits and different ways you can eat/drink turmeric plus a friend of mine making me a golden milk “cuppa” I decided to try it for myself.
The benefits of turmeric are amazing;
– Natural anti-inflammatory
– Natural anti biotic, anti septic
– It improves digestion
– Lowers cholesterol
– Helps with fat metabolism and weight management
– Improves asthma and helps coughs
– Helps skin conditions (eczema, psoriasis etc)
The main one for me was there is promising results when having turmeric in your diet linked to aiding prevention for cancer (skin, breast, colon, prostate, leukaemia) It even reduces the side effects of chemotherapy. Some serious benefits!
