Ayurveda Friday - Golden Milk
Ayurveda Friday 🙏🏻 Today’s recepie is Golden Milk 🥛
Turmeric is bitter, astringent and pungent in taste. In ayurveda, each taste has a relationship with the balance of the doshas. Turmeric contains balancing qualities for all three doshas: its “hotness” balances Vata and Kapha; its dryness and its pungent tastes balance Kapha; and its bitter taste balances Pitta; making it tri-doshic! Turmeric has many positive benefits: it supports detoxification for the liver; assists digestion; supports circulation and nervous system and is anti-inflammatory.
