Golde: Wellness’s Golden Child
From the moment I discovered Golde, it was a no-brainer, we had to feature it at Beauty Heroes. Golde checks all of the boxes for me—quality ingredients, intentional founder, noticeable benefits, delicious taste, mindful packaging.
I first met Trinity Mouzon, Co-Founder of Golde, last year in New York City. I was moved by her courage to start a company at a relatively young age and her clear sense of purpose and quality. We exchanged personal stories and shared the remarkable benefits we both experienced as a direct result of adding turmeric to our wellness routines. Trinity shared the story of how turmeric helped to alleviate her mother’s debilitating rheumatoid arthritis. I shared how I found turmeric to be the cure for my crippling tendinitis, a life-changing development, in addition to a visible decrease of the hyperpigmentation on my skin.
We made a toast to turmeric while Trinity explained how she sources the single origin turmeric from a family farm in India, how she and her partner Issey painstakingly select the ceremonial grade matcha, and how the sweet, mellow fermented cacao gives Golde its flavor and potency.
Trinity made it clear that Golde goes beyond delivering a wellness product, it makes wellness accessible—both in price and preparation. Golde’s reasonable price—$26 per pouch—comes down to being less than a dollar per serving. Golde is intentionally formulated to be easy to prepare—simply add water and mix with a spoon—no blending, whisking or frothing necessary. Each blend is made with organic, raw coconut milk powder with the perfect dose of healthy fat and a dash of sweetness, in addition to black pepper to aid with turmeric absorption by the body mixed with just the right amount of ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon, to boost the metabolism and add flavor. This is why I chose Golde for this month’s Limited Edition Discovery. For a limited time, you can get all three Turmeric Tonic Blends—Original, Matcha and Cacao—for $55 in our Beauty Store.
Just a few weeks ago I met Trinity (and Issey) for the second time in Brooklyn where Trinity shared how she enjoys Golde daily, with a few extra tips along the way. Watch a clip of our time together in the video below!
One thing to love about Golde is that there are so many ways to enjoy it! As you saw, Trinity enjoys it as a morning tonic, it can also be whipped into a smoothie or protein shake, enjoyed as an afternoon snack or evening milk latte. Blend it into curries and stirfry, roll it into nut butter or oat balls, or dust it on fruits, veggies or salads. As soon as I discovered Golde, I had a feeling that the savvy and saucy cookbook author and beauty enthusiast Susan Jane White would fall in love, so I sent her a pouch and asked her what she would do with Golde. I knew she would find a new way to enjoy Golde, and she did. The result is golden, persimmon speckled Golde Halvah. It’s delicious and now yours to enjoy!
This exotic halvah is happy to loiter in your freezer for several months, waiting to service your munchies. You can play with the amount of Golde Turmeric Tonic and even sneak in some mindfully sourced collagen powder for extra ammunition. Golde’s powdered tonics make me feel like I’m going to live forever. And if I don’t? I’m happy to die trying. ~ Susan Jane White
