Acclaimed as “the spice of life” in India, where it is used in everything from cooking to skin care, to religious ceremonies, this spicy orange root has a rich history.
The people of ancient India valued it so highly that it had at least 53 different Sanskrit names, including one that means “gives delight to the heart” and another meaning “enhancer of body complexion.”
Full appreciation of its health benefits was largely limited to its native region for thousands of years.
But starting about 2013, its popularity in the Western world began to grow, and then it surged at the beginning of 2016. Internet searches for the word shot up, and it was apparent that word was getting out…
Turmeric was a hot new superfood popping up on everyone’s radar.
Almost simultaneously, internet searches for golden milk shot up. Which isn’t surprising, given that golden milk gets its name, color and many of its nutritional benefits from nutrient-packed, antioxidant-rich turmeric.
In fact, golden milk grew to be so popular, so fast, that in 2016, the prominent British newspaper, The Guardian, awarded it the title of “2016’s drink of choice.”
The growth of turmeric’s popularity came right along in the wake of an explosion in scientific research, which took off in 2012.
After thousands of years of use in traditional Indian and Chinese health systems, turmeric now has thousands of modern scientific studies demonstrating its impressive array of health-promoting qualities.
Golden milk capitalizes on these qualities by blending turmeric with other health-promoting herbs and spices, like ginger and cinnamon.
Let’s take a look at why this traditional Ayurvedic treasure has recently grabbed more of the spotlight in the Western world.
This Special Compound in Turmeric Boosts Your Vitality in a Variety of Ways
Native to India and Indonesia, turmeric is now grown throughout southeastern Asia, on the islands of the Indian Ocean, and in parts of South America, Africa and Australia.
It’s a staple spice in the cuisines of Iran, China, India and Thailand, where it’s used to flavor dishes ranging from fragrant turmeric rice to soups and curries.
Turmeric also plays an important role in the traditional health practices of China and India, where it’s valued for its ability to promote detoxification and support the digestive and circulatory systems.*
While turmeric contains a wide variety of health-promoting compounds, one in particular has received the most scientific attention…curcumin.
Curcumin is a flavonoid polyphenol compound with powerful antioxidant properties. Thousands of studies have shown that curcumin supports overall vitality in a variety of ways:
- May help aid in minimizing oxidative stress*
- Supports prostate health in men*
- Promotes comfortable, flexible movement and healthy joints*
- Helps maintain digestive health*
- Promotes health vision and skin health*
Plus, this potent spice is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which has led scientists to research its potential as a neuroprotective nutrient and supporter of overall brain health.
Curcumin is found exclusively in turmeric, so you have to consume this beautiful spice if you want to experience curcumin’s benefits. Fortunately, there are many delicious ways to do this, and here’s one of them…
We’ve created an exclusive recipe for turmeric-rich golden milk that combines Organic Fermented Turmeric Organic and Organic Turmeric Root Extract, standardized to 95% curcuminoids for maximum health benefits.
We then selected four other potent spices, and two revered herbs, and combined them all in a deliciously creamy coconut milk to bring you Solspring® Organic Golden Milk, a rich, delicious way to enjoy the flavors and health benefits of turmeric.
Turmeric’s Botanical Cousin – a Traditional Favorite for Promoting Healthy Digestion
Commonly used in Indian and Chinese cooking, Ginger pairs well with turmeric not only in food, but also in health tonics.
Ginger and turmeric are both rhizomes – underground stems that look like roots – of the Zingiberaceae family, and are often included together in recipes.
A perennial plant native to the humid, shady areas of the tropical and subtropical forests of southeastern Asia, ginger is valued both for its flavor and for its antioxidant properties.
It is especially noted for its ability to soothe occasional gastrointestinal distress and promote comfortable, healthy digestion.*
In addition to its use to flavor sauces, curry dishes, pickles, ginger ale and more, ginger offers many potential health benefits:
- Supports digestive health.*
- Helps support healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range and maintain normal cognitive functions.*
- Provides antioxidant benefits, limiting reactive oxygen species that cause oxidative stress in your cells.*
- Promotes the healthy growth of beneficial gut bacteria.*
Plus, ginger’s pungent, zingy flavor has the unique effect of being both invigorating and soothing – a perfect accompaniment to turmeric.
Our Organic Golden Milk includes organic ginger rhizome to tantalize your taste buds and help soothe your stomach.
Highly Regarded for Centuries, This Exotic Tree Bark Offers More Than Enticing Flavor
Just like turmeric and ginger, cinnamon is native to Southeast Asia. This sweet, warm-smelling spice is also produced in the Caribbean, South America and Madagascar.
If you’ve ever handled a cinnamon stick, it won’t surprise you to learn that it is literally the dried inner bark of one of the trees in the Cinnamomum family.
, cinnamon has been highly regarded for centuries. In fact, its use was first recorded as early as 2800 B.C. in ancient China.
Cinnamon has a special place in the Bible, where it is named as an ingredient in the Hebrews’ holy anointing oil in the 13th Century B.C., and the Romans used it to help promote digestive and respiratory health.
Today, science is discovering an array of health-promoting properties contained within the sweet wood. Its potential health benefits include support for:*
- Cognitive function.*
- Healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range.*
- Weight management.*
- Healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range.*
- Good dental health.*
The exclusive blend of organic cinnamon we use in our Organic Golden Milk enhances the flavors of turmeric and ginger as well as the blend’s overall potential health benefits.
A Trifecta of Cardiovascular Support*
Turmeric, ginger and cinnamon all offer scientifically-demonstrated potential benefits for cardiovascular health, but what’s exciting about combining the three is that each has different modes of action in your cells.
This powerful trifecta of polyphenols and antioxidants works together to provide broad-based support for your heart health*:
- Turmeric – The bioactive ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, has been shown in human and animal trials to have beneficial effects on the heart. In a randomized controlled trial, researchers identified the antioxidant effects of curcuminoids as a major factor for the cardioprotective effects observed in humans.*
- Ginger – In another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, researchers looking at ginger found that it had a positive effect on the blood that could provide potential cardiovascular support.*
- Cinnamon – One meta-analysis of ten randomized controlled trials with a total of 543 participants showed cinnamon could support normal healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels, both important factors in cardiovascular health.*
Sitting down to a cup of Golden Milk is more than a tasty culinary enjoyment for you. It’s also a dose of nourishment for your cardiovascular system.
With potential benefits delivered through multiple pathways, your heart benefits as much as your taste buds.
But those aren’t the only flavors you’re treated to with our Organic Golden Milk. Four more ingredients lend their exotic flavors, along with a list of health benefits of their own…
This Pungent Spice Duo Adds Exotic Notes and Ramps Up Potency
In the U.S. and throughout the world, black pepper is a mainstay in spice cabinets and on tabletops. One of the most traded spices in the world, it accounts for one-fifth of all imported spices worldwide.
Black pepper is made from peppercorns of the Piper nigrum plant. Peppercorns are actually the fruit of the plant, which grow in long clusters similar to grapes.
Containing naturally occurring piperine, Organic Black Pepper adds pungency and a “warming” effect to our Organic Golden Milk. This beneficial alkaloid contains healthful properties that potentially…
- Aid in gastrointestinal health.*
- Provide antioxidant effects to fight free radicals.*
- Support your cholesterol levels already in the normal range.*
- Benefit your cognitive function.*
Plus, pepper works synergistically with turmeric. The piperine in the pepper helps enhance the bioavailability of the curcumin in the turmeric, potentially allowing your body to absorb more of the beneficial compound.
Alongside the pepper, we added a special spice known as the “Queen of Spices.”
While it’s not well known in the U.S. and very seldom used, its warm, pungent notes make it immensely popular in Scandinavian cuisine.
The spice actually originates from the same place as the other ingredients in our Golden Milk – India. So, how did it end up so popular in the northern regions?
The Vikings came across it in the markets of Constantinople during their globe-trotting adventures, and Cardamom has been a Swedish staple ever since.
Cardamom lends a unique aromatic component to breads, wines, pastries and stewed fruits. It also contains a variety of antioxidants that may help maintain already normal blood sugar levels and promote healthy metabolism.*
This spice has also demonstrated potential health benefits, including oral hygiene support, digestive health support and blood pressure support.*
Cardamom’s one-of-a-kind essence adds an intense, fresh and almost citrusy note to Organic Golden Milk.
Vitamins, Minerals and a Touch of Sweetness From Two Tasty Herbs
Highly revered in India for over 5,000 years, Tulsi has been valued as a principle herb in India's ancient holistic health system called Ayurveda. Also known as “holy basil,” it is a highly nutritious herb often used for its health-promoting properties.
Organic tulsi contains potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and vitamin C. It also contains iron, sodium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, and vitamins B6, A and K.
Due to its powerful adaptogenic properties, there is significant evidence that tulsi can potentially help address physical, chemical, metabolic and psychological stress.*
The herb’s health promoting properties help support your overall heart health and immune function as well.*
To add a touch of sweetness to the flavor of our Solspring® Organic Golden Milk, we included Stevia Leaf.
Stevia is a perennial herb found within the Asteraceae family, which means it’s related to daisies, marigolds, ragweed and sunflowers. And it’s the only ingredient not native to southeastern Asia.
A shrub native to South America, stevia is up to 200 times sweeter than sugar, while also rating zero on the glycemic index, which means it has no effect on blood sugar levels.
Due to the presence of caffeic acid, flavonoids, kaempferol, quercetin, tannins and triterpenes, stevia acts as a natural antioxidant with zero grams of sugar per serving in Organic Golden Milk.*
