Golden Milk

As the weather is turning chilly and I feel the need to stay warm, I makethis delicious drink to warm and comfort me while providing nourishment.
Golden milk is a traditional Indian drink made with turmeric, cinnamon,ginger, and other spices.
Turmeric is good for you for areason. If you have an autoimmune condition then turmeric milk can help due toits anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric is one of Mother Nature’s tophealing compounds and studies * have shown that curcumin, the activeingredient in turmeric, can help certain autoimmune conditions by regulatinginflammatory signals.
Turmeric is also a potent antioxidant. It can fight free radicals andcan even help ward off the common cold. All because it fights  chronicinflammation  ** that may otherwise be suppressing your immune system.
Drinking Golden Milk is also a good source of calcium and vitamin D.
