Why Golden Milk is so Healthy:

The healing power of turmeric is found in the compound curcumin. Turmeric has also been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties.
Black pepper is used in golden milk to boost the amount of curcumin the body absorbs. In fact, one study showed that by adding piperine (black pepper) to curcumin, the bioavailability of curcumin is increased by up to 2000%!
The addition of virgin coconut oil to the golden milk recipe helps to boost the healing power of turmeric and helps the body absorb even more of the curcumin.

Coconut oil is a natural source of energy that helps to speed up metabolism.
