The Health Benefits of Turmeric & The Golden "Mylk" Recipe

Posted by Mauli Rituals on

Turmeric; the rich ochre coloured spice that needs no filter.  An Ayurvedic kitchen cabinet essential, my parents used turmeric when cooking, in milk, to heal wounds and cure colds. My sisters and I used tumeric when making face masks and even as a paint pigment. We did not question the health benefits or even pay attention to them; turmeric was passed on through the generations, because we had been brought up to believe that ‘food is medicine and medicine is food’.

Turmeric: A Medicinal Herb

What really creates the magic in this golden spice is curcumin; an active ingredient in that has been proven to support health issues from inflammation, pigmentation, arthritis, depression detoxication, stabilising blood levels, improved cognitive and kidney function and chronic digestive issues such as Crohn’s disease.  Researches recommend 1-2grms daily and various studies show even as little as 50milligrams of turmeric taken for a few months brings untold benefits.  

Turmeric in Mauli Rituals Formula

We use turmeric; known in India as ‘golden goddess’ in many of our blends for its potent healing properties.  A potent antiseptic, antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, turmeric is a wonderful anti-ageing ingredient that has an effect on suppressing transmuting grown agent beta One, and it is this that is said to play in part in cell degeneration.

Curcumin: a Natural Anti-Inflammatory Ingredient

All the research into turmeric has given us many delights such as ‘golden milk’ or rather mylk – as in, non-dairy milk.  Now with winter approaching, here’s is Claire (our web manager’s) version of Golden Mylk as a cold cure and sinus de-congesting tonic.
Warm Oat Milk over the stove, ensuring it does not boil over but is heated through. 
Mix in 1 spoon of turmeric and a spoon of pure honey. Add fresh ginger. Put the blend into a cup and add a pink of pepper to finish. Now drink and rest.
