Health Benefits of Green Turmeric Tea

Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is one of the most well-known anti-inflammatory foods available. That’s why so many supplements that focus on calming inflammation are made with this golden ingredient. 

The primary bioactive compound in turmeric that’s been studied for its anti-inflammatory properties is a polyphenol called curcumin. Some of the benefits associated with curcumin include anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-anxiety, supportive to your immune system, and heart-supportive[*].

Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea 

Matcha green tea is packed with nutrients that can enhance cognition and antioxidant status, support heart health, and may even help you lose weight[*][*][*].

If you’re dragging in the afternoon and need a little more than a caffeine boost to get your brain going, matcha is the answer. Due to high levels of the amino acid l-theanine, matcha not only wakes you up, but it keeps your mind steady, stable, and on task. Basically, all the energy you would get from caffeine, minus the anxiety of subsequent crash[*]. 

Key Ingredients in Golden Milk

This may not be your traditional golden milk recipe, but you’ll still reap the benefits of the Ayurvedic classic elixir due to the overlapping ingredients. Namely, turmeric, pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and milk. 

Black pepper is always added to golden milk for a very specific purpose — it assists your body in absorbing the curcumin from turmeric[*]. On its own, curcumin has poor bioavailability in your body. When combined with black pepper, however, curcumin is able to be absorbed more readily and utilized by your cells and tissues. 

Meanwhile, ginger and cinnamon further serve to add flavor and spice, and a warming essence to the drink. 

Golden milk is always made with some form of milk as well. If you can tolerate dairy, that full-fat milk works great. However, if you have any issues with dairy, go for full-fat coconut milk or almond milk. This adds a creamy, soothing feel to your tea.

If you want to take it a step further, however, you can choose to make a traditional turmeric paste. 

How To Make A Turmeric Paste

To make your turmeric paste, use a small saucepan and add in a ratio of two parts water to one part turmeric, and then add in your black pepper. Simmer the mixture over low heat until a paste forms, typically about 15 minutes. 

You can store the turmeric paste in your refrigerator for a couple of weeks, adding it to your tea as you wish.
