When we say our NEW Golden Sun Milk and Golden Moon Milk by Anima Mundi is golden, we're not just talking about the color. This warm frothy drink has enough scientific discoveries backing it up that it's no wonder why wellness seekers and practitioners alike are anxiously awaiting to get their hands on their very own jar.
A little background on the drink many are calling the "cure-all" beverage: Golden Milk is an ancient Ayurvedic medicinal drink from India known as 'Hadi doodh.' It was made with hot milk and ground turmeric, and often garnished with a bit of honey, cinnamon, black pepper. Turmeric milk is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties due to its compound, Curcumin. For thousands of years, turmeric has also been used to treat ailments such as joint pain, digestive issues, fatigue, and stiffness, but there are studies that show that the list of benefits doesn't end there!
Anima Mundi, the brand of herbs and adaptogens we carry in The Mercado, used the ancient Golden Milk recipe as the foundation of their new, and even more powerful Golden Sun Milk and Golden Moon Milk formulas! How did they do it? To start, they used activated Turmeric, allowing the Curcumin to be better and more fully absorbed into the body.
The Golden Sun Milk is perfect for the morning or when your body and mind need a pick me up. They incorporated activating plants, such as adaptogenic powerhouse Maca and Cordyceps, known to energize the body, and even increase muscle mass (Cordyceps!) Anima Mundi also added Mucuna, a revered nootropic (also called "dopamine bean") due to its ability to enhance our dopamine receptors. Delicious and organic chai spices such as Cinnamon, Cardamom, Black Pepper, and Vanilla were incorporated for sweetness and ginger because of the positive effects on calming the tummy, regulating blood sugar levels, and its anti-cancer compounds.
The Golden Moon Milk is a warm drink that is sure to send you off into your dreamscape. Anima Mundi created this cosmic fusion of relaxing and stress-reducing plants like Ashwagandha, and restorative 'spirit' plants such as Reishi and Blue Lotus. Relaxing and digestive herbs like lavender, cardamom, and vanilla are in there too!
Golden milks are excellent for anyone seeking digestive support, help with inflammation, and just an overall longevity drink to sip that is more than just delicious. It's excellent for kids too, and safe for most people.
