How to Make the Best Turmeric Latte
Making turmeric latte is no rocket science. On the contrary, it’s simplest of all. There are many ways to make ‘Turmeric Latte’. It consists of two ingredients namely turmeric and milk of any sort, preferably cow milk.

Due to the unique taste and variety of this beverage, it is slowly gaining more popularity in cafes around the world.
Benefits of Turmeric Latte
1. Common Cold and Flu:
The consumption of this beverage instantly gives relief when you are experiencing a cold. Turmeric is known to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
2. Stronger Bones
Cow milk, which is normally used in the making of ‘Turmeric Latte’ is a very rich source of Vitamin D and Calcium, both of which are essential in creating the structure of strong bones and maintaining the same. If enough care is not taken to include an appropriate amount of calcium in the diet, your body soon starts extracting it from your bones to maintain the normal calcium level in your blood. This, for a prolonged period, will result in making bones fragile, which, in turn, has huge chances of causing diseases like Osteopenia and osteoporosis. Deficiency in Vitamin D also causes weakness in bones.
3. Rich in Antioxidants:
The key ingredient in ‘Turmeric Latte’ is turmeric, which contains curcumin, known to be high in antioxidants. Antioxidants not only help to prevent cell damage but also minimize the danger of oxidative stress. Regular intake of antioxidants is a great way to protect you from illness by lowering the possibility of infections and diseases.
4. Improvement in the Overall Brain Function:
Studies have proved that turmeric has a definite chance of improving levels of Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor or BDNF, which enables your brain to form new connections. The lower the levels of BDNF, the higher are the chances of brain disorders, which inter alia include, Alzheimer’s disease and depression. The main component of Turmeric known as ‘Curcumin’ ensures the growth of brain cells. ‘Turmeric Latte’ may improve the mood and may help lower depression levels. However, there is a scope for further study in this regard.
5. Anti-inflammatory Properties:
The notable feature about the ‘Turmeric Latte’ is the anti-inflammatory properties of the beverage. Chronic inflammation is often experienced by cancer patients and patients of Alzheimer’s disease. People with heart disease also have reported this problem.
Instead of infusing the body with drugs, with lots of side effects, why not give ‘Turmeric latte’ a chance? This beverage has no side effects.
Not only chronic inflammation but also patients of arthritis, joint pain, and stiffness have found a huge relief. Their overall health is improved as compared to those who don’t consume ‘Turmeric Latte’.
