Turmeric Latte and Its Potential Health Benefits

What To Know

  • While the medical community awards the results of the wider study on the health benefits of curcumin and other ingredients of turmeric, you should still see your doctor before you use turmeric regularly or consume large amounts of turmeric latte.
  • Golden milk or turmeric tea is similar to the new favorite, the turmeric latte, which you can make from a turmeric latte mix and other spices.

There is too much buzz about turmeric today because many people believe the herb has healing properties. But turmeric is not a new herb. It has been around for several centuries, with practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine in India using it as a go-to remedy for several ailments. India is the biggest herb producer and one of the heaviest users of turmeric.

What is the buzz all about?

As mentioned, turmeric has been around for ages, and many medical practitioners, especially those in Asia, use turmeric as a remedy for various ailments. Moreover, turmeric features in several Asian dishes from India, Thailand, and Indonesia. Other countries, such as the Middle East, North Africa, and the Caribbean, have several native dishes that use turmeric.

For the people from the west, eating food with turmeric would be an acquired taste. However, they are more into the possible health benefits of turmeric, which is available in many forms. One of the most popular is turmeric powder, which consumers can easily use when preparing meats, soups, and favorite drinks, such as tea.

With more people shifting to a healthier lifestyle, they demand that coffee shops that typically serve coffee in different preparations and flavors, and a variety of teas, should also serve golden milk. Golden milk originated from India, where they boil milk with turmeric and other spices.

But using fresh turmeric is not practical for people who lead hectic lives. Golden milk or turmeric tea is similar to the new favorite, the turmeric latte, which you can make from a turmeric latte mix and other spices. People call it a latte even if it does not have coffee because they add milk foam and latte art.

Potential health benefits

Drinking turmeric latte has potential health benefits because of curcumin. Curcumin is one of the bioactive ingredients of turmeric. It is now a subject of extensive research because many users believe curcumin has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Many people worldwide are already using golden milk, turmeric tea, and turmeric latte, which they believe provide several health benefits to prevent illness and boost immunity. While the health benefits are still the subject of large-scale scientific research, turmeric does contain several vitamins and minerals, which can promote better health. For example, turmeric is a good source of antioxidants, protein, curcumin, magnesium, potassium, calcium, choline, folate, and phosphorus.

People who regularly consume turmeric latte caution against making the latte very potent because people with specific medical conditions may develop complications. Still, they say that their consumption of turmeric latte helps reduce the inflammation and pain caused by arthritis. This could be because turmeric is very rich in curcumin, which is an anti-inflammatory substance. Doctors say that inflammation is linked to chronic diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and health diseases.

Aside from reducing inflammation and pain, many believe curcumin from turmeric can improve brain health and memory. In addition, according to studies, curcumin can potentially lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

While the medical community awards the results of the wider study on the health benefits of curcumin and other ingredients of turmeric, you should still see your doctor before you use turmeric regularly or consume large amounts of turmeric latte.
