Trust us—after tasting NingXia Red®, even we thought it was impossible to indulge in yet another YL drink that is both delicious and nutritious. Enter Golden Turmeric™. This newly released prebiotic drink mix not only tastes of mango and rose, but also holds incredible health benefits.

Golden Turmeric combines the benefits of high-quality turmeric and prebiotics to support your body’s natural response to inflammation, immune response, joint health, mobility, and recovery after exercise. This bountiful blend can support healthy digestion as well as your gut-brain axis. Golden Turmeric’s unique, water-dispersible formula makes it 24 times more bioavailable than standard turmeric extracts. It absorbs quickly and easily, so you can enjoy the full benefits of turmeric and relax, restore, and recover.

Turns out you don’t have barista talent? Stay calm. This turmeric drink is splendidly simple to make. Just mix ½ teaspoon in 6–8 ounces of water, juice, or milk of choice once daily.
