Have you heard about golden milk?  It is a drink, which is traditionally cow’s milk simmered with herbs, specifically turmeric root and ginger root.  The health benefits of this ayurvedic beverage are purportedly numerous, and I always have a dose of skepticism when it sounds too good to be true.

 

But I know how beneficial curcumin is (it’s the primary active ingredient in turmeric) as an anti-inflammatory and the research is plentiful in its use as pain control.  The anti-inflammatory effect is not limited to the joints.  It’s been shown to be effective for gut inflammation as well.

 

Traditionally, golden milk has been used for liver health, heart and brain health, immune system support (supposedly treats colds, flu, and sore throats), inflammation, skin health and healing, and is full of anti-oxidants.  Sounds good, doesn’t it?

 

Then I started reading about how to make golden milk.  Chopping, slicing, mashing fresh roots.  Simmer it in milk for 15 minutes, watching closely so it doesn’t scorch.  Then remove from heat and allow it to sit to continue infusing the milk with all that herbal goodness.  Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth.  Add honey to taste.  Then finally, you can drink it.

 

WHO’S GOT TIME FOR ALL THAT?  Not me.

 

So I was very excited when Metagenics released Golden Fusion, a powder version of golden milk that is added to warm water, coconut or almond milk.  It’s been so easy that I’ve been drinking my Golden Fusion every day for three weeks now.  Can I see any difference in how I feel?  Yes, I can.  (If you want details on what I have been noticing, please ask me in person!)  Is it doing everything that golden milk claims it does?  I don’t know yet.  But I’m going to keep drinking it and see.

 

The big question is, how does it taste?  It was quite good in sweetened coconut milk (I accidentally bought sweetened coconut milk. Oops!), and it was oh, so soothing when I had a cold with a very sore throat.  In unsweetened coconut milk and warm water, it’s okay.  By no means does it taste bad or bitter, but it’s not something that tastes like dessert either.
