Improve Sleep And Boost Digestion: Turmeric Coconut Milk Recipe

Written by: Sarah Lawrence

Turmeric is one of the most researched plants on the planet. Over 8000 scientific studies explore and confirm turmeric’s medicinal properties for everything from depression and diabetes, to inflammation and blood pressure regulation, to liver detoxification and immune system support!

This is an ingredient that you definitely want to have on hand, my friend. The good news: turmeric is affordable and available, has a neutral taste and is easy to incorporate into your daily routine.

Traditionally, turmeric is used in teas, curries, broths and herbal supplements. Those are great ways to get turmeric into play and as a healthy foodie, you are probably familiar with adding turmeric to a meal.

Here’s my truth: I’ve had a little love affair with turmeric for years. It’s been in my soups and stews, tossed in with my potatoes and pasta sauces and even creatively added into my morning smoothies. As a student of Ayurveda, I learned that daily use of turmeric could have a profoundly positive impact on my health… so we’ve been in a hot little relationship ever since!  

Turmeric tea sipped throughout the day is a go-to; I simply slice a piece of turmeric root and add it to the pot (something you should try, too!).

But overall, incorporating turmeric into my nighttime routine has been magical. Here’s the thing I especially want you to try because, friend, you deserve something magical, too!

More Benefits of Turmeric


The daily recommendation of turmeric is around 450 milligrams of curcumin capsules or about 3 grams of fresh turmeric root daily divided into several doses. The problem is that curcumin doesn’t have the best bio-availability level when taken orally. Even if you are taking turmeric religiously, you may not receive all the benefits due to poor absorption – unless it is combined with black pepper.

When combined with black pepper, the effects of curcumin are strengthened. Researchers have found that the bioavailability of curcumin in turmeric is increased by 2000% when consumed with a quarter of a teaspoon of black pepper.


Daily Turmeric Boost is our very own turmeric supplement. We use a critical extraction method, which means Daily Turmeric Boost is 4 times more usable by the body! You get MORE of the benefits, without having to take more capsules.


Organifi Gold also contains maximum strength turmeric. It is made to be consumed as a warm drink, like a latte or soothing tea. Along with turmeric, we combined black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, lemon, coconut milk and medicinal mushrooms. Organifi Gold is designed to improve immunity and promote relaxation and healthy sleep. This is definitely the most delicious and enjoyable way to get your daily dose of turmeric! Try yours today.

Bonus Tip – Some golden milk recipes include cinnamon. As a Holistic Health Coach, I encourage you to skip cinnamon at bedtime. Why? Because cinnamon is more of a stimulant. Traditional aromatherapy uses cassia and cinnamon oil to promote alertness and while the scent is warm and comforting, the actual spice helps light up your digestive fire. So, save cinnamon for the morning cup!

When looking for a good turmeric supplement, be sure to consider turmeric absorption. Black pepper enhances curcumin bio-availability by 2000%. Organifi Gold is a soothing warm drink that contains not only the highest quality turmeric and black pepper but also 7 other relaxation promoting superfoods. Try yours today.
