An ancient Indian spice used for thousands of years, a healing remedy in Ayurveda to balance doshas, and a delicious calming beverage- the Golden Medicine of Turmeric is profound. Known as the golden spice of India, Turmeric, also known as curcumin, has been cherished as an anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, and antioxidant. While also aiding in digestion, lubricating joints, and promoting liver & intestinal health. Historically, a turmeric paste will be applied to the arms and faces of brides and grooms in India, as a cleansing ritual to beautify the skin. With knowledge of the many benefits of turmeric to overall health, the team at Good Medicine Lounge has added this sacred golden paste to various elixirs.
Combining Turmeric with milk, as traditions tell, enhances its effects as something bitter is combined with something sweet (as in naturally sweet, like milk). The bitter can help detoxify, while the sweet can help strengthen the bio-availability to send the medicinal qualities deeper in the body’s systems. Furthermore, the addition of black pepper with turmeric in the paste, also increases curcumin’s bio availability in the body. Enhancing these spices, we have also added ginger root powder, cardamom, and cinnamon. In this combination, one is receiving a superb dose of good medicine through these profound healing spices. An immune boosting, soothing, satisfying combination for health and happiness derived from ancient wisdom.
Our house-made golden paste can be consumed as a golden milk, fire starter coffee, smoothie, added to a steaming chai, or taken home in 4 oz. or 8 oz. jars to make your own version of this delicious remedy.
