Golden Milk: Traditional, Healthy and oh so Tasty!

Golden milk, often referred to as "haldi doodh" in Hindi, is a traditional Indian beverage that has been cherished for centuries for its healing properties and delightful flavor. With its roots deeply embedded in the ancient Ayurvedic system of medicine, golden milk is more than just a comforting drink—it's a powerhouse of health benefits.

The Origins and History of Golden Milk

The history of golden milk traces back to ancient India, where Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine, emphasized the importance of using natural ingredients for maintaining health and treating various ailments. Turmeric, the star ingredient of golden milk, has been a staple in Indian kitchens and Ayurvedic practices for over 4,000 years. Known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, turmeric has been revered as a "golden spice" that promotes overall well-being.

Golden milk was traditionally consumed to boost immunity, improve digestion, and enhance the body's natural healing processes. Over the years, this humble beverage has transcended cultural boundaries and gained popularity worldwide, particularly in wellness circles, for its numerous health benefits.

Ayur Shakti : Tradition + Convenience

Our golden milk, made from Chai Spice Ayur Shakti, encapsulates the essence of traditional Indian wellness practices. Ayur Shakti is a blend of SEVEN HERBS & SPICES (YES! SEVEN!), that are carefully selected, each contributing its unique health benefits:

1. Organic Turmeric: The cornerstone of golden milk, turmeric is renowned for its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, helps reduce inflammation, improve brain function, and lower the risk of heart disease.

3. Organic Clove: Known for its aromatic and medicinal properties, clove aids in digestion, has strong anti-inflammatory effects, and provides relief from respiratory conditions due to its natural expectorant qualities.

4. Organic Tulsi (Holy Basil): Tulsi is celebrated in Ayurveda for its adaptogenic properties, helping the body adapt to stress and improve mental balance. It's also effective in promoting respiratory health and boosting immunity.

5. Organic Ginger: A well-known digestive aid, ginger reduces nausea, combats cold and flu symptoms, and possesses powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

6. Organic Licorice: This sweet root is used in Ayurveda to soothe the digestive system, reduce inflammation, and support respiratory health. It's also known for its immune-boosting properties.

7. Organic Black Pepper: Piperine, the active compound in black pepper, enhances the absorption of curcumin in turmeric, making the combination more effective. It also aids digestion and has anti-inflammatory properties.
