Due to the current strange state of the world, my stress levels have been higher than usual. To combat that, I have been dedicating extra attention to my self-love practice. I am taking care of myself in significant ways such as exercising each day, eating exclusively nutrient-dense foods, juicing vegetables daily, and keeping up with my mindfulness practices of meditation and gratitude journaling. But I am also taking care of myself in smaller ways, like making soothing golden milk turmeric lattes to calm my system and balance my energy. There is something about beginning each morning with a warm cup of golden milk that grounds me and sets the tone for the rest of my day.
I have been drinking golden milk for years, but I recently discovered the perfect secret ingredient that makes each latte a ten out of ten for me: Further Food’s Superfood Turmeric Daily Golden Milk Powder Blend. I am not exaggerating when I say that this golden milk powder is unlike any other that I have tried before. The rich cardamom and clove notes are ultra-comforting and delicious. And beyond the flavor, I am extremely impressed with the ingredients. The powder is completely free from any unnecessary additives and preservatives and its components boast numerous health benefits.
The superfood powder provides a powerful boost of curcumin, the most active naturally occurring compound in turmeric root. Curcumin is the reason why every health professional (myself included) is obsessed with turmeric-based products. It is extraordinarily high in antioxidants and promotes anti-inflammatory processes. Scientists believe that inflammation plays a major role in many of today’s most common western diseases such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and various other degenerative diseases. That is why regular consumption of inflammation-limiting compounds like turmeric is such a crucial preventative measure that we should all be taking.
Along with turmeric the golden milk powder also includes other superfoods like cardamom, clove, cassia bark, ginger root, Indian frankincense bark, and Schisandra berry. Some of the powerful effects of these superfoods include reduced inflammation and joint pain, improved digestion, rapid healing of infections, and maintenance of healthy blood flow, just to name a few.
Some of the other reasons why I am such a big fan of Further Food’s Superfood Turmeric powder include:
- It is completely vegan.
- It contains no sugar.
- It is keto and paleo friendly.
