Turmeric has many good properties for our body. Among other things, it improves our well-being and causes the level of the happiness hormone (serotonin) to increase, which makes us feel better. It is worth knowing that we have the highest level of stress hormone in the morning, so it is good to reduce it with such a drink. Turmeric late tea is delicious, and I drink it every day with pleasure, and I encourage you to do so.
How to choose the best ingredients for a turmeric latte happiness drink
Ground turmeric: use good quality turmeric powder for this drink. We store them tightly in a closed container in a dark place. Then the spice does not lose its properties.
Black pepper: black pepper will be best ground fresh, then it also has a great smell, but if you do not have such an opportunity, it may be ground black pepper already. Pepper is an essential ingredient in this drink, and it cannot be ignored because it contains the pipetine compound, which makes turmeric better absorbed into our body. Folk medicine knew it before, but scientists have now confirmed it.
Cinnamon: cinnamon has been a much-appreciated spice since ancient times. Choose the yellow-brown cinnamon, the lighter one more aromatic. Orange-brown cinnamon is of lower quality and therefore has fewer essential properties for our health. Cinnamon gives turmeric latte its aroma, making the drink even healthier and warming.
Honey: as for the mode, it is in a format where depending on what kind of milk you use, I usually drink this happiness drink with a coconut drink, which is sweet enough for me. Use the honey you like, remembering that it should be of good quality, preferably from a proven apiary.
Tips and tricks
