The use of turmeric dates back nearly 4000 years.

It is a widely researched herb, there are 36,000 research articles, 311 clinical trials and over 75 years of research.

Turmeric contains nearly 100 different chemical compounds. You may have heard about curcumin. The other active compounds in turmeric are tumerones and there are many different curcumoids.

Turmeric activates the cells of your innate and adaptive immune systems. It inhibits inflammatory enzymes such as COX-2 which is exactly what Advil also does, but Advil has many side effects.

Turmeric mitigates allergic reaction. It is involved in modulating the cytokine storm. Then it has so many effects, it improves the outcomes of the autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases and neurodegenerative diseases.

It would be valuable if organizations like the CDC, Fauci and other people started talking about boosting immunity but they won't because this means that they're going to give power to you and I. When we look at the health benefits of curcumin from an immune health standpoint, curcumin modulates, the key word is modulates, because you want immunity you want your body for example to react when you have a pathogen but you don't want it to overreact so modulation is a goal like shock absorbers or suspension system so when you hit a bump your car doesn't go violently crazy.

Curcumin can modulate immune cells and immune cell cytokines, the cytokine storm from innate as well as adaptive immune system through two important mechanisms anti-oxidative properties and anti-inflammatory.

Benefits of Golden Milk

Drinking Golden Milk when feeling under the weather or feeling any pain or inflammation in your body has been proven to help alleviate and even cure people. I have used it for many things ranging from treating mastitis, to the occasional boil and/or cyst. I use it to generally boost my immune system and as a very powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-carcinogen.

Turmeric has been used ever since the times of the Ancient Egyptians, who used turmeric to close open wounds. That treatment is still being used to this day in Laos. That is what my uncle used to close the wound on his hand when he nearly chopped his fingers off with a machete while chopping a coconut! He just filled up the wound with turmeric powder and it healed without any stitches or major scarring. His hand healed back to normal again.

No matter what you may "have" a cup of Golden Milk will do you more good than any Big Pharma pill. It even tastes delicious. Add turmeric to your food when cooking, or to your shakes and juices. You can even just eat it raw. You will definitely notice a difference once you start using it.
