Turmeric latte | Health benefits & recipe
A turmeric latte is the latest alternative coffee recipe and it’s caught the attention of health bloggers. Have you tried it yet? Here’s why you should…
Turmeric and coffee are the new tasty combination to offer a low calorie and delicious alternative to the usual latte. Turmeric is a perennial herb native to India and due to its many health benefits is high on our list of healthy plant foods.
So, before we indulge in this delicious recipe, let’s look at why we should all be drinking turmeric latte:
- It’s great for the skin
Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce the redness in our skin and helps to prevent irritation. Its anti-bacterial properties help to protect us against wrinkles too – bonus!
- Good for the brain
Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin which has medicinal properties. This helps to protect against Alzheimer’s disease and can increase our overall memory function.
There have also been studies to show that turmeric helps relieve depression. Curcumin has neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties which help to regulate hormones and any changes to the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin.
- Works wonders for muscle pain
Attention all gym-buddies, you have a turmeric latte to drink. Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties have been proven to help relieve delayed muscle pain and arthritis or joint pain.
