Inspired by yoga, this Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk allows you to embody the energy of peace without having to visit a meditation space. It contains both turmeric and cinnamon, which are associated with the element of fire and are believed to contain purifying and healing properties.
Known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich properties, golden milk is the combination of turmeric and coconut oil. Turmeric contains curcumin, which is a compound that has been found to reduce swelling and inflammation. (This could be beneficial for digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis.)
Coconut oil is filled with lauric acid, a type of medium-chain fatty acid that may help promote weight-loss. Coconut oil is also rich in antioxidants and nutrients such as vitamin C and potassium which are crucial for our day to day health.
