Good as Gold is an organic golden milk powder blend packed with turmeric, coconut, and superstar Ayurvedic herbs: ashwagandha, reishi mushroom, and ginger root. We have added a pinch of organic maple sugar and vanilla to enhance this powder’s rich turmeric and coconut flavor. You can enjoy this powder on its own with water or milk as a Golden Milk Turmeric Latte. Turmeric’s active ingredient, Curcumin, has been studied for its ability to support joint function and is high in antioxidants (hello, glowing skin!). Check out our blog for the full list of turmeric and curcumin benefits. We have also included organic black pepper in this blend which can increase curcumin absorption by as much as 2000%.
What it does
Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, has been studied comprehensively for its effect on inflammation. Curcumin is able to support against inflammation by blocking a specific molecule called NF-kB. NF-kB is the molecule that activates genes that are linked to inflammation. By disrupting that pathway, curcumin is able to help protect against inflammation.
Ashwagandha has been studied extensively for its ability to support cognitive function and memory. It’s also considered an Adaptogen - which means through regulation of hormones, Ashwagandha can help the body acclimate, or adapt, to stressful situations.

Reishi Mushroom is popular in Eastern medicine and has been studied for its ability to assist in moderating the immune system and in helping to reduce fatigue and anxiety. Some of these studies have shown that the mushroom is able to reduce immune system activity when the system is overstimulated, and boost the immune system when it is weakened.
Ginger is closely related to turmeric, and, like its spicy cousin, is high in antioxidants. Ever had someone tell you to drink ginger beer for an upset tummy? There’s actually scientific backing for that advice. Gingerol, ginger’s active ingredient, has been studied for its ability to reduce nausea and morning sickness.
