Turmeric Milk

Following on from my recent article about bloating I wanted to share with you my favourite natural remedy, turmeric milk.

The health benefits of turmeric are receiving a lot of attention at the moment because its main active ingredient, curcumin, is such a powerful anti-inflammatory and a very strong anti-oxidant. So not only is this milk good for aiding digestion, it’s also great for;

  • boosting your immune system
  • relief from coughs and colds
  • flushing toxins from your body
  • skin conditions such as eczema
  • relief from headaches
  • helping you sleep

* If you’re taking blood thinning medication please avoid taking high doses of turmeric.
