Golden Turmeric Latte – The anti-inflammatory drink that boosts your immune system
Appearing on café menus around the world as a Golden Latte, this tasty drink offers powerful functional health benefits and is fast gaining popularity as the colourful new option to try when you’re looking for a caffeine-free alternative and in need of an immune boost.
Bringing together some of Mother Nature’s healthiest ingredients, a Golden Turmeric Latte is made from a spicy blend of turmeric, cinnamon and ginger that’s been added to steamed milk.
Curcurmin, the antioxidant that gives turmeric its golden hue, has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, gastrointestinal health properties, which have been linked to the prevention of cancer cell growth and management of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, asthma, eczema and inflammatory bowel disease. The high antioxidant and anti-bacterial content in turmeric also means it is great for helping to reduce the symptoms of colds and flu.
Cinnamon has been hailed for its antioxidant properties and been proven to help reduce the risk of heart disease. Ginger, commonly used to fight colds, flu, indigestion and nausea, is also another powerful anti-inflammatory.
So keep your body fighting fit this winter with a cup of golden goodness. We love the red espresso® Golden Turmeric Latte Mix for its perfectly balanced blend of turmeric, cinnamon and ginger with just a hint of organic coconut blossom sugar for sweetness. 100% pure plant-based goodness that you can use to make a golden latte or add to your smoothie or breakfast bowl.
