We Think it's Goji Okay

 

history

For centuries turmeric has been valued for its medicinal properties, however, in the western world it is rarely consumed. Referred to as the "spice of life," golden milk has the potential to change that in our country. 

Golden milk is an ancient way of experiencing the benefits of turmeric with helpful fat included. Turmeric is fat-soluble, due to an active ingredient called curcumin, so in order to make the most of it, you must take it with fat! 

Also, adding a pinch of black pepper to turmeric enhances curcumin's bioavailbility by 1,000 times, due to black pepper's hot property called piperine.

process

Golden milk is not actually milk at all, at least not in the dairy sense. The traditional method of making this elixir is to melt a paste of turmeric and water into a cup of coconut milk and oil. 

Golden milk is the difference between simple consumption and full-absorption, as the ancient way would have it before supplements were manufactured.

Other ways to get the most out of turmeric:

  • dissolve it into a tablespoon of coconut oil before adding to a smoothie
  • eat curry! lots of curry! 
  • stir into olive oil and then toss in fresh veggies or salad
  • sprinkle onto an avocado

Our take on this traditional elixir was inspired by a local folk artist in the Asheville area named Rob Seven. Known for his creative concoctions of language, characters and curiosities, we stumbled upon his goji berry carvings and were inspired to integrate this antioxidant rich berry into into our golden paste.
