The Benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric comes from the same family as ginger. That may explain why they go so well together in this delicious beverage. You’ve probably heard claims of turmeric’s ability to help fight disease and boost the immune system . These benefits are thought to come from the curcumin content, which also gives turmeric its deep golden color.
Harmful free radicals are unavoidable. Among their many negative effects they are thought to cause the skin to age prematurely . Because turmeric is a great source of antioxidants, a daily helping of this awesome spice may help your body counter free radical damage.
Now here’s a fact you might not know about turmeric. If you eat it alone, then very little of the beneficial curcumin is actually digested. One of the best ways to help absorb curcumin and gain all of its health benefits is to consume it alongside fats such as coconut oil , so that’s why we’ve combined these ingredients in this tasty latte.
What makes Ginger so special?
You’re going to love the spicy warmth that the ginger brings to this warming beverage. But ginger is so much more than a great tasting spice. It’s known  to have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s been used for thousands of years to treat nausea and infections. So you really might benefit from letting a bit more ginger into your life!
The goodness of Almond Milk, Honey and Cinnamon
Almond milk has about half of the calories of cow’s milk, is lactose-free, and is high in vitamin E, making it great for your skin . Honey is a natural sweetener that is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also another excellent source for antioxidants .
That sprinkle of cinnamon on top will not only provide a distinctive warm flavour and smell, which complements the ginger so well, but will provide quite a few health benefits of its own. Cinnamon is commonly used in Chinese medicine. It contains large quantities of polyphenol antioxidants which are known to have anti-inflammatory effects. It is also believed to help manage blood sugar levels as well as having antibacterial and antifungal properties. Wow!
Go on-indulge yourself!
