Anti-Inflammatory Latte Health Benefits

Raw Earth Medicine:

Anti-Inflammatory Latte

2 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp Turmeric 

8 oz Hot Liquid - water, tea, coffee 

Put ingredients in bottom of a mug and pour the hot liquid over them and stir

Add a dash of nutmeg and vanilla to spice up this latte even more and Enjoy! 

How it works: 

1. Turmeric -

A potent anti-inflammatory spice, which protects against oxidative stress. Research has suggested that turmeric and its anti-oxidative ingredient, curcumin, can help reduce inflammation, help heal wounds, relieve pain, contribute to weight loss, prevent cancer and long term use has been known to change the bodies composition to continually reduce inflammation and improve cellular health. 

2. Cinnamon - 

Contains large amounts of highly potent polyphenol antioxidants which protect the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. The antioxidants in cinnamon have anti-inflammatory effects, which may also help lower the risk of disease. Cinnamon also has been known to suppress the appetite and can be used as an alternative to sugar and sweeteners. 

3. Honey - 

Possesses antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Honey has been known to help heal wounds, control acid reflux, reduce stomach inflammation and reduce allergy symptoms. (*studies are still being conducted to scientifically show the benefits on a molecular level but historically honey has been known to benefit the aforementioned ailments)

Combining Honey, Turmeric and Cinnamon creates a powerful anti inflammatory compound.  This compound has been known to reduce inflammation, swelling, pain, rheumatoid arthritis, gastric inflammation, improve circulation and is also a good tool for cancer prevention as it lowers oxidative stress from free radicals. 

This should be a staple in your morning routine and you will feel the benefits within one week of daily consumption. 

Watch how you no longer need anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals after you switch to this Latte!
