Turmeric has countless health benefits including anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, liver detoxifying and potent anti-cancer properties. It is also good for brain function, lowers triglycerides, promotes digestive health, helps regulate metabolism and strengthens the immune system. Ginger is anti-inflammatory, improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body, and is a potent cancer fighter. This Golden Milk is the perfect warm drink to enjoy before bed.
