Helps Fight bone diseases:
Milk in itself is a very good source of calcium and minerals which helps in the development of the body. Almonds too contain fortified Calcium and minerals. Taking badam milk can help fight bone diseases like osteoporosis, arthritis, etc. Turmeric on the other hand has anti-inflammatory properties which help during winters to cure wounds and help arthritis patients in pain. It is better than using a drug on a daily basis.
Boosts Memory and Learning:
As per new studies, neurons can form a new connection and multiply in certain areas of the brain. This is possible because of brain-derived neurotrophic factor protein. When the levels of this protein decrease in the brain, it leads to a lot of brain disorders including Alzheimer’s and depression. Curcumin found in turmeric helps improve levels of BNDF protein and thus reduces age-related weakness in brain function. Badam milk contains ACh acetylcholine. It is a neurotransmitter that enhances memory and learning. During winters when we switch to unhealthy snacking and minimum physical activity, badam milk and turmeric milk must be your go-to drinks.
