Being the sort of person that I am, I can't help letting you in on a secret (if you didn't already know, that is).
Haldi (turmeric), the yellow stuff used in everyday Indian cooking is supposed to have beneficial effects. A rather pleasant way to consume some on a regular basis is in the form of 'golden milk'. Simply put some haldi, honey and almond oil (you could use ghee instead) in a glass and add boiling milk. Stir and enjoy.
