Up Your Immunity with “Golden Milk”

As the weather changes, it can make us more susceptible to cough, colds, flu and other bugs that get the best of us. One of my favorite go-to spices for combating illness with a strong immune system is turmeric! Due to it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, it has been used since ancient times in Ayurvedic medicine.

  • Turmeric – anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral
  • Ginger – anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral and aids digestion
  • Cloves – anti-bacterial and anti-viral
