What A Nutritional Psychiatrist Drinks To Manage Anxiety

A golden latte, otherwise known as golden milk or a turmeric latte, describes a milk-based beverage that’s seasoned with spices—most notably turmeric to give it that signature golden hue. “I use my beloved grandmother’s chai recipe for all the added spice benefits, too,” Naidoo says. 

Along with the warm and nostalgic factor, turmeric lattes have science-backed mood-enhancing benefits. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is a powerful antioxidant.
