Joint mobility is extremely important in our daily lives. It doesn't matter what stage of life you're in or what your lifestyle is. The ability to move without pain or stiffness isn’t something to take for granted. You can help to support this vital function with a powerful herbal blend no one should be without - Golden Milk Super Blend.
Joint stiffness and pain can result from a number of factors but whatever the cause, when it does happen, it’s not fun and inevitably affects our and possibly our quality of life. The words of Hippocrates, “Let food be thy medicine,” truly resonates with our team at Sunfood Superfoods, and the topic of joint health is no exception.
So what makes our Golden Milk Super Blend such a powerhouse for joint health? Some key herbal ingredients that are synergistically combined to bring you a powerful joint-supporting blend.
This popular spice is a recipe superstar when it comes to South Asian cuisine. Turmeric contains an anti-inflammatory constituent called curcumin. Alternative medicine studies have shown that curcumin offers similar relief benefits to ibuprofen in terms of reduced pain and swelling in patients with osteoarthritis(1). The symbiotic ingredient that enhances the bioavailability of curcumin is black pepper, which is why we have delicately peppered it into our Golden Milk Super Blend.
In Peru, Maca is commonly used for joint and arthritis pain. Maca has been shown to boost Nitric Oxide (NO) levels in cartilage, an important element that helps to increase circulation and reduce inflammation(2). Maca is also adaptogenic, meaning that it has the ability to adapt to your body’s specific needs. The adaptogenic properties of maca are particularly notable with hormone regulation for both men and women -- offering increased strength, energy, and stamina for optimal function and mobility.
Goji berries are abundant in antioxidants, which are essential to maintaining overall health and joint function. And superfoods that help our bodies to combat free radical damage should be staples in our diet. Goji berries are also rich in the protein. Just a single cup supplies up to 12 grams of protein, which is necessary for muscle-health thereby supporting overall joint mobility.
Many of us are familiar with the prized essential oil, Frankincense, which is actually derived from the North African and Middle-Eastern, Boswellia tree. The tree is tapped for its resin, which has been historically utilized for its medicinal properties. The most notable active compounds within the resin are boswellic-acids which have been shown to produce anti-inflammatory effects parallel to over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS), without the commonly-reported negative, and oftentimes dangerous, side-effects to the digestive tract(3).
Ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon are also added to our Golden Milk Super Blend, which round-out not only the nutritional benefits but makes it super tasty!
Our Golden Milk Super Blend can be combined with your favorite organic milk or plant-based beverage such as hemp, coconut or macadamia milk. We love making an elixir out of it with perhaps a dash of nutmeg or saffron. Yum!
