Golden milk latte also known as turmeric tea is a delicious, natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidant drink.
The health benefits of golden milk come from the curcumin found in turmeric. With the combination of black pepper, it boosts the absorption of curcumin. The compound piperine prevents the liver from metabolizing the curcumin before it can be absorbed into the bloodstream. All you need is a pinch of black pepper to increase the bioavailability as much as 2,000%.
