If you yearn for something a little more soul warming, that makes you feel like you’ve just consumed sunshine in a cup, and gives you subtle, clean energy without making you feel anxious, then you should give Turmeric lattes a try.
The old Turmeric root has been used for more than 4000 years to treat a variety of ailments. The active ingredient Curcumin, has anti-inflammatory properties that have been used for treating conditions related to inflammation such as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and ulcerative colitis. It has a wide variety of other benefits including:
Good for the skin - Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties mean it can help to reduce redness and skin irritation, whilst its anti-bacterial qualities make it great for blemishes and acne. You can literally give yourself a Turmeric facial by using the powder as an exfoliant then leaving it on for 10 minutes to help fight breakouts. Or simply apply on breakouts to stop them in their tracks.
Great for your Brain - Curcumin’s amazing anti-inflammatory super powers can also help to protect against the effects of Alzheimer's disease, and boost your memory. Turmeric can also help keep your brain healthy, promoting repair to stem cells in the brain. Now where did I put my car keys….
Helps muscle recovery - Those amazing anti-inflammatory properties also can help relieve joint pain, arthritis and reduce delayed-onset muscle soreness. I like to have a Turmeric shot before going to the gym as a natural pre-workout and to help my body recover when I’m done.
Helps alleviate symptoms of depression - Researchers from the Government Medical College in India found that Curcumin can help with depression, without the dangerous side effects of anti-depressants. The same goes for when you’re just having a crappy day. A spoonful of Turmeric a day, keeps pretty much all your problems at bay.
Good for the heart - Turmeric has been found to reduce levels of 'bad' cholesterol in the body, instead increasing the levels of 'good' cholesterol. This means that you will have less risk of heart attacks to strokes.
Turmeric lattes have been doing the rounds at the hottest hipster hangouts usually made on organic, cold pressed, hand harvested at the first sign of morning dew coconut milk to make them sound even more hip and jack up the price. Coconut milk actually helps improve the absorption into the body, so I highly recommend it.
You don’t have to sell your first born to enjoy the body loving benefits of turmeric lattes however, you can now make the perfect cup at home EVERY TIME with the new Golden Grind Turmeric Blends. Just add your favourite warmed milk/mylk or water and you have a perfect latte. Sprinkle a little extra goodness on top, take an instagram pic and you’re ready to go.
The blends come in three amazing flavours including:
Chilli - giving you just a subtle hit of warmth and extra spice. Chilli helps boost your metabolism so this blend is great as a pre-workout blend or to give you that extra little step in your day.
Coconut and Cacao - this is heaven in a cup. Smooth, and velvety this blend is my favourite way to kick 3PM cravings. It also has the added benefits of liquorice root which is great for anyone suffering from adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, heart burn, leaky gut, and PMS.
The hero blend - classics never go out of fashion. The hero blend is a perfectly proportioned mix of 100% natural, unmodified turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper that tastes delicious and a must for every home.
TIP: Adding black pepper to Turmeric helps your body absorb it better. This is why all the Golden Grind blends features a hit of black pepper.

There's a little saying I like to go by, if you can't tone it, tan it! I won't lie, I'm quite partial to sporting a year round tan. There is something about having that sun-kissed glow that makes you feel and look a little leaner, and dare I say a tad sexier. The good news is that with all the amazing advancements in natural skin care products, you can get that glow without worrying about nasty toxins, sun damaged skin or looking like an Oompa Loompa.
