Golden Life Turmeric Blend really is so versatile and delicious, making it so easy to give your child their daily dose in fun and different ways! Here are a few ideas: • Try sprinkling a dose over their morning oats, muesli or cereal • Add to their favourite smoothie • Use Golden Life in your homemade date ball recipe, or try adding it to a paleo coconut bar, for an in-between-classes snack, when concentration may be dwindling. • Go traditional with a bedtime Golden Milk, for a better night’s sleep. This will help them to wake up feeling refreshed and combats stress-related insomnia too. You can visit our website for tons of recipe ideas, or perhaps you have a fun way in which your kids get their daily dose – we’ve heard of turmeric gummies and ice lollies! Have you tried these?
We often get asked, when is the best time to give your child their daily dose of Golden Life? It’s important to understand that turmeric is an adaptogen - a natural substance that helps our bodies to adapt to environmental stresses by restoring our biological ability to cope and respond. Being a mom, you have a natural ability to know best when your child needs a helping hand from nature to manage their stress and inspire their innate resilience. It really is a case of “Mom knows best” - whether Golden Life should be given as a kick-start to their day, a pick-me-up in the afternoon between school and extra-mural activities or even as a wind down at night after a productive study session and before bed time old school style with a cup of Golden Milk (In India, this was the way moms first started giving turmeric to their kids, to aid with restful sleep). So now that you know the timing is all up to you, here’s a handy guide to just how much is safe per day: // For children under 12 yrs old, 2g a day is recommended = 1/2 tsp of Golden Life per day (half a dose) // For children over 12 years, 4g a day = 1 tsp of Golden Life per day (one dose) // For adults, we can go up to 2 full doses a day, which is 8g = 2 tsp
Each one of us has a story about cancer - a family member, a dear friend, or yourself. We as a team, here at Golden Life are no exception, with a family member having been diagnosed with breast cancer just a few months ago. Early detection is also one of the most important lines of defence against cancer. Visit @thepinkdrive and @cancerassociationofsouthafrica for details of their screening units and walk-in cancer detection centres, as well as details on how to donate or volunteer. More links can be found on our @GoldenLifeCollection Facebook page. Remember to stay aware of changes to your body year-round - not just for October!
The fight to cure cancer is the elusive dream of modern science. As Breast Cancer Awareness month is underway, we thought it apt to explain a little more about how turmeric, and its important compound curcumin, can aid the body in its protection and fight against cancerous cells. Curcumin interferes with several important molecular pathways involved in cancer development, growth and spread, as it has the ability to modulate genetic activity and expression - both by destroying cancer cells and by promoting healthy cell function. We already understand curcumin boosts antioxidant levels and strengthens the immune system, which are important factors in the body’s fight against cancerous cells. Studies now tell us, it also promotes antiangiogenesis - meaning it helps prevent the development of additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth. Studies remain ongoing, but understanding the fundamental advantages of turmeric and curcumin, are leading scientists to discover further far reaching benefits in fighting this modern disease. *Always consult your medical practitioner if you are currently on prescribed treatment.
