By far, this turmeric almond milk beverage is my favorite nightcap drink to simmer up. Not only is it delicious, it’s packed with a variety of health benefits. This treat is one that I’ve made multiple times a week to take advantage of the nutrients it provides such as it’s vitamins and most importantly, it’s anti-inflammatory ability. Turmeric is also good for coughs, colds, and sore throats. Although I don’t suffer from insomnia, it’s perfect for those who can’t get the sandman to show up for a visit. The additional ingredients in this turmeric drink include: cinnamon, which is loaded with powerful antioxidants that have potent anti-inflammatory activity, ginger which has a long history of relieving digestive problems, nausea, pain reduction, inflammation, and honey for a hint of sweetness.
Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant. An ingredient used to make curry and has a deep yellow-orange pigment color, which is called curcumin. Curcumin is known to be the primary pharmacological agent in turmeric. In both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine, it has been used as an anti-inflammatory. It has also been used as a healing property to treat conditions such as arthritis, menstrual difficulties, bowel disease, alzheimer’s disease, and cancer prevention while improving high cholesterol, liver function, and cardiovascular protection.
Turmeric is an excellent source of both iron and manganese. It is also a good source of vitamin B6, dietary fiber, and potassium.
Kitchen Tip: It’s deep color can easily stain. If a spill happens, quickly wash the contact area with soap and water to prevent a lasting stain.
