By now you may be wondering what puts the “Golden” in “Golden-Milk”. Turmeric is the shining star in this anti-inflammatory coconut-milk beverage, delivering 1500 mg of the Ayurvedic root sourced from southeast India. This root has been revered as a super herb for its unique and beneficial properties for over 200 years. Historically this golden root has been used to support joint health, respiratory health, and digestive wellness.
Clinical studies have shown this root may support reduced inflammation, help to cleanse our bodies of those little toxin buggers, and aid in muscle recovery after exercise.
How does turmeric grow?
This plant likes tropical conditions, but it’s fairly hardy when faced with elements out of its preferred climate. While the root grows into a beautiful bright orange color, the stalks grow long, tall, and green with large elongated oval leaves.
Here at REBBL, our goal is to make plant-powered beverages taste delicious, while also maintaining efficacy. For our Golden-Milk, this means increasing the bioavailability of curcumin, the star antioxidant of turmeric, by up to 20 times with the addition of black pepper fruit extract. Because curcumin is also liophilic and only dissolves in fats, our coconut-milk acts as the vehicle for delivering turmeric’s key bioactives.
