Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder that affects people of all ages, especially the elderly. There are many causes of insomnia, but the main ones are lack of exercise, certain medications, anxiety, chronic illness and poor sleep habits.

Some people use sleep aids in an attempt to fall asleep. But, there is a natural remedy that works just as well or even better! It’s called “Golden Milk” and contains . And, in addition to helping you fall asleep, it can improve your health!

Why is it so good for you?

Benefits of the milk:

Turmeric is the main health-boosting ingredient in this milk. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Curcumin is a strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. Studies have shown that turmeric can relieve the painful effects of many chronic illnesses, such as peripheral neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, and migraines. It’s also useful in treating the side-effects of stroke, cancer, and thyroid disease. It’s inexpensive and easy to find.

Benefits of Turmeric:

  • Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial

  • Kills cancer cells and stops tumor formation

  • Maintains blood sugar levels

  • Controls cholesterol

  • Supports the cardiovascular system

  • Promotes wound healing

  • Boosts the immune system

  • Improves mental clarity

  • Organ detox

Benefits of Coconut Milk:

Coconut milk is very nutritious! It’s packed full of vitamins E, C, and B vitamins. It also contains the minerals calcium, magnesium, iron, selenium and phosphorous. It’s also lactose free so people who have a lactose intolerance are able to drink it without the nasty side effects of cow’s milk. The fat in coconut milk is a “good fat” that helps cholesterol levels stay low. And, since turmeric is fat soluble, the fat in coconut milk helps us better absorb turmeric’s amazing health benefits.

Benefits of Ginger:

Besides tasting great, ginger has health benefits. Research has shown that ginger reduces pain and inflammation, lowers blood pressure, regulates insulin, is anti-microbial and soothes the digestive system.

Benefits of honey and Black Pepper:

Black pepper has anti-bacterial properties and can alleviate chest congestion caused by colds, flu, allergies and air pollution. And, honey not only sweetens the milk and makes it taste amazing, it has many health properties, including: anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, soothes ulcers, regulates blood sugar, prevents cancer and heart disease.

Turmeric milk making

The recipe:

  • 2 cups coconut milk

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1 piece sliced ginger

  • ¼ tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp Honey

Place all ingredients but the honey in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until bubbles begin to appear. Reduce the heat and allow to cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, take out ginger and add the honey.

Note: if you have any health concerns and are under a doctor’s care, check with your healthcare professional before drinking this.
