Golden Milk is flavored by black pepper, which enhances the absorption and the anti-inflammatory effects of the turmeric. Plus, black pepper contains a number of essential nutrients, including manganese, vitamin K, and iron; it is often used to calm digestive issues. The coconut oil helps your body actually absorb the nutrients from the other ingredients; plus it tastes great!
