For thousands of years, Golden Milk has been served by mothers and aunties in India as a holistic concoction to cure a broad range of ailments. Turmeric, the key ingredient giving golden milk it's "golden" name, carries an active ingredient called curcumin, which is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Ginger and cinnamon, two ingredients also found in most golden milk blends, are touted as having own health benefits; aiding in digestion, and having anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Golden milk is said to be able to help reduce inflammation and joint pain, aid with memory and brain function, protect against heart disease, bring down high cholesterol and blood sugar levels, help with headache, heartburn, stomach pain, and digestive issues, and even improve symptoms of depression.
