More specifically, you want help with Golden Milk Frappe Drink Recipe: Inflammation Reducing Drink with ACV- Thomas DeLauer?
by now many of you know me as Thomas the crazy drink concoction guy well I’ve got yet another one for you this one is combining almost all the ingredients that I find to be super anti-inflammatory into one moderately good tasting drink now you can make it as good tasting as you want by adding some more stevia but I’ll get to that in just a second so I’m gonna start with all these ingredients that are totally anti-inflammatory and I’m gonna tell you about them one by one so I’m gonna start by having one of these a little magic bullet little blender things pick one of these up for like 20 bucks all right so first and foremost I’ve got some almond milk now a lot of people gonna say Thomas you’ve talked in videos about almond milk being inflammatory before but I want to make sure I make something very very clear the reason that almonds are inflammatory is because of the phytates the phytic acid that is in the skin okay when we’re making almond milk you don’t have the skins okay the almonds are blanched you have the skin is gone and you’re making all milk from the actual fats that are in the almond you’re not actually having the structure that is hard to digest thereby potentially causing inflammation so almond milk is good you just want to make sure you get one that does not have carrageenan in it the carrageenan is very inflammatory you can eyeball this but we’re gonna go with like 12 ounces here decent amount alright there was actually a study that was published in the british journal nutrition that found that those that consumed high amounts of blanched almonds or almond milk I didn’t have carrageenan in it had lower levels of I selected now what ISA lectin is is a particular inflammatory cytokine so if I selected as high and then you usually have higher instances of inflammation it was also found they ended up having lower levels of c-reactive protein so it’s kind of funny if you eat a lot of almonds that still have the skin you could be in a situation where you potentially cause an immunoglobulin response an IgG or an IgA response which triggers inflammation but if you do it right and you get the right kind of almond milk it can actually be anti-inflammatory I know there have been a lot of people that have questioned what I’ve said on that because sometimes to talk about almonds being inflammatory sometimes I don’t okay the next one and this is going to seem weird that we’re mixing almond look a little bit of a CV but we have to have some apple cider vinegar in there simply because it is now shown especially after 2017 in a recent study that it really does modulate inflammation within the body in this study they actually took a look at a siik acid that came from vinegar versus a synthetic acetic acid and they found that the acetic acid that came from vinegar was more powerful when it came down to reducing inflammation than a synthetic acetic acid which goes to show that the fermentation process that’s involved in things like apple cider vinegar coconut vinegar is where the power is truly held when it comes down to reducing inflammation in the body now since this particular recipe has some fat in it you’re not going to want to have a big-time water-soluble thing that isn’t going to be a mole supplied so you don’t want to do much I’m just gonna literally do like a half a tablespoon just enough to kind of get the acetic acid in there and help cut some of the other things that are in there so super simple they’re half tablespoon to a full tablespoon if you really want to go for it okay then we’ve got coconut oil yeah I talked about MCT oil and coconut oil all the time but in this particular case I’m using straight-up coconut oil and I’m doing this for a reason okay we have of course the MC T’s in there the MC T’s are very very powerful when it comes down to reducing oxygen stress in the brain the thing is when it comes down to coconut oil only 20% of the actual coconut oil is MCT oil so what are the other benefits that I want well I want the lauric acid benefits which converts into mono Lauren in the body which thereby reduces intestinal inflammation if it helps you out there but there was a recent study in 2017 as well that found that coconut oil reduces serum alkaline phosphatase activity now alkaline phosphatase ALP is something you might recognize on your blood test if we have high levels of ALP it’s actually an indicator of cancer an indicator of tumors so when you see that coconut oil has a direct correlation with lower levels of ALP serum alkaline phosphatase you know that you’re doing a good thing with your body you’re potentially reducing the inflammation that could be associated with cancers so that’s one of the reasons why I want to have it in there but the MCT is also play a big role when it comes down to brain inflammation so we definitely have that going for us okay then of course we have good old-fashioned turmeric curcumin so we all know that curcumin has some huge benefits when it comes down to inflammation modulation but there’s a very recent study that was published in the american journal of physiology regulatory integrative in comparative physiology try saying that five times fast that showed that curcumin has some additional anti-inflammatory effects when it comes down to post-exercise recovery in this particular study they took a look at four different groups one group ran uphill and had curcumin okay the other group ran uphill and didn’t have curcumin then another group ran downhill and had Kirk and another group ran downhill and didn’t have curcumin so what they found at the end of this study was that curcumin offset the performance deficit of the running so what that means is that those that ran downhill and uphill were able to recover faster and able to go on to their next exercise without feeling like they were completely debilitated not able to workout basically a boosted recovery but there was also a huge improvement in inflammatory markers so they found all these different inflammatory cytokines that would normally indicate inflammation or reduced dramatically so when you have downhill running for instance you have a lot of lactic acid buildup a lot of stress on the muscle and what they found is that by adding curcumin in the mix that stress was limited they were able to recover much much faster proving that it reduces inflammation post exercise so all of you that are watching this video right now that are wanting to get some benefit from your recovery and everything like that curcumin obviously has some huge benefits there so then I’ve combined curcumin or turmeric with some ground ginger here the reason that I’m using ginger because ginger in a very recent study as well has also shown to improve osteoarthritis now osteoarthritis of course can be inflammation within the joints so we have inflammation reduction that’s occurring there huge reduction in tumor necrosis factor one alpha if that is an inflammatory cytokine that directly has to do with joint inflammation then of course we had a decrease in prostaglandin levels ok prostaglandin is a precursor to inflammation of course we need certain prostaglandins we need prostaglandin e2 we need all these prostaglandins to trigger inflammation at the right time but we don’t want too much so ginger has been shown to reduce particular prostaglandin activity that’s associated with joint pain then of course we have the inhibition of lipo oxygenase lipo oxygenase is the toxin that goes ahead and toxify x’ fats basically it’s a lipid toxin so it goes around and oxidizes all the fats that are in our body causing lipid peroxidation when that happens fats turn bad they turn rancid within our body all I’m trying to say is ginger is good stuff when it comes down to inflammation so I’ve got a half a teaspoon of each half a teaspoon of turmeric and a half teaspoon of ginger alright now I’ve got the stuff all waiting to go you can use warm almond milk or you can use it cold right out of the blender it actually tastes pretty darn good well one of the things that you can do if you want to make it taste a little bit sweeter let’s go ahead and just add a couple packets of stevia in there so if you want you can mix that up you can do it either or so it’s basically like having a golden milk latte that’s a little bit more advanced it’s an inflammatory cocktail that harnesses the power of all these ingredients to reduce inflammation in the brain reduce inflammation in the joints the digestive system and just overall in your life and I think you’re gonna like the pet because the ginger adds a nice little zest to it it has some additional components that might just help you if you’re getting sick too so as always keep it locked in here for my crazy concoctions if you have ideas for future videos or future drinks that you’d like to see for different ailments let me know in the comments section below I’ll be sure to create some that’ll blow your mind and possibly blow your taste buds

Golden Milk Frappe Drink Recipe: Inflammation Reducing Drink with ACV- Thomas DeLauer…
8 ounces almond milk
2 T ACV
½ T Coconut Oil
½ t Ginger Powder
½ t Turmeric powder
Optional: ½ t raw, organic, local honey
Almonds: Multiple studies have found almond consumption o be beneficial for cardiovascular health – Largely through lowering blood lipids& may also reduce inflammation. Case Study – Almonds beneficial for several inflammatory markers 1. 2010 study published in the British Journal of Nutrition. 25 healthy adults, both males and females, age 23-53. Following 2 weeks preparation where participants consumed 34% energy from fat, subjects were randomly split into three groups and followed these diets for 4 additional weeks.
Heart-healthy control diet without any nuts (less than 30% energy from fat)
Low almond diet (10% replacement of control diet with almonds)
High almond diet (20% replacement of control diet with almonds)
Findings: Serum E-selectin was significantly lower for those following the high-almond diet than the control diet, with the low-almond participants with E-selectin values in the middle. C-reactive protein (CRP) was lower in both almond groups when compared to the control group. No differences were found on IL-6 or fibrinogen.
ACV: Case Study – Recent Study Finds Vinegar Reduces Inflammatory Markers, Body Weight, and Food Intake in Obese Mice 2. 2017 study published in Nature’s Scientific Reports.
Findings: Both vinegar groups experienced reduced body weight and food intake. Nipa vinegar more effectively reduced inflammatory parkers and well as lipid deposition and serum lipid profile.
MCT Oil 3: In traditional Thai medicine, the coconut has been used for centuries for a wide variety of ailments. In multiple studies, coconut oil has been found to possess anti-inflammatory effects. Virgin coconut oil has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory effects on ear edema and paw edema in rats. This effect was thought to be partly due to reducing granuloma formation, transudative weight, and serum alkaline phosphatase activity.
Turmeric: The mechanisms through which turmeric reduces inflammation are thought to be, lowering the levels of two pro-inflammatory enzymes in the body and stopping the formation of blood clots through stopping platelets from clumping together. Case Study – Curcumin Reduces Inflammation Caused by Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage in Mice 5. 2007 study published in the American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology.
Conclusion: In mice, curcumin may reduce inflammation and improve performance following eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage.
Ginger 6,7: Case Study- Human Study of Ginger finds it to be More Effective than Placebo for those Suffering from Osteoarthritis.
2001 study published in Arthritis & Rheumatology- 261 knee OA patients with pain ranging from moderate to severe took part in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel-group, multicenter, 6-week study to evaluate ginger extract versus placebo in reducing “knee pain on standing.”
Findings: Those in the ginger group on average reported a greater reduction in knee pain on standing, knee pain after walking 50 feet, and Western Ontario and mcMaster Universities osteoarthritis composite index. On average the ginger extract group experienced a larger reduction in the intake of rescue medication when compared to the placebo group. Global status was on average improved more in the ginger extract group.
