Curcumin (Diferolelyl methane) is a phenol compound derived from rhizome of curcuma specie.20
Using cucrcumin, pre-clinical cancer research has shown that this plant inhibits carcinogenic procedure in the most cancers including colorectal, pancreas, gastric, and prostate.
It is also effective on different stages of carcinogens, proliferation, angiogenesis and metastasis.
NF-Kβ Signaling pathway is involved in cytotoxic doxorubicin effects and its analogues; hence, curcumin increases response of tumor cells to doxorubicin through blocking NF-Kβ signaling pathway.
Phase II clinical trial studies have shown that curcumin is not toxic to human to a dose of 8000 mg/day.22
HOW TO MAKE GOLDEN MILK
I’m using full fat cows milk, but you can also use coconut milk, almond milk or cashew milk or other fat lipids such as oil – FAT soluble, that means – the more fat to bind the chemicals together, the better.
Here’s how you make it:
- Pour the milk into a small pot – place the small pot inside a larger pot full of boiling water – set to medium heat.
- Add some ground turmeric, a pinch of black pepper (helps your body absorb the curcumin), a touch of cinnamon (anti-inflammatory).
- Bring to a simmer for 10/20 minutes to let the chemicals bind to the fat.
- Strain through a filter and add organic hot chocolate if you wish 😉
