Winter is officially here and cold & flu season is kicking off with a bang. What are you doing to protect yourself and arm your body with the natural nutrients it needs to fight off Old Man Winter?
Our CK Turmeric Golden Milk is a delicious way to give your body the medicinal compounds (curcuminoids) found in turmeric. Proven to be a natural anti-inflammatory and dramatically increase the level of antioxidants in the body, turmeric can improve circulation and increase your body’s immunity (of course, if you are really sick, please see a doctor).
When combined with other healing herbs like ginger (known for settling an upset stomach and for containing antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties), our CK Turmeric Golden Milk truly can be used as a healing tonic (if nothing else than to warm the soul and offer a few moments of self-care while sipping).
