Now I just love pumpkin spice. It’s warm, comforting and yes, everything nice. Just smelling pumpkin spice will send me on a euphoric journey into la la land. Sure bliss!
 
But before I show you some of the wild and crazy pumpkin spice products I found, I’d like to tell you about the health benefits of pumpkin spice. Just don’t forget to check out the many pumpkin spice products with reviews!

Health Benefits of Pumpkin Spice

Castries Market Saint Lucia

 

Cinnamon : Contains calcium, manganese, iron and even fiber. Cinnamon has one of the highest health benefits of all spices.

It works as an antioxidant to help protect cells against free radicals that can damage cells.

It has also been known to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar.

Recipe: Cinnamon Apple Infused Green Tea

Allspice: This spice is loaded with folates, niacin, calcium, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin A and C, potassium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, pantothenic acid and pyridoxine. Moreover, allspice has been used in dentistry for centuries as a local antiseptic and anesthetic for teeth and gums. It is also known to help indigestion and flatulence, plus increase blood flow (making the skin feel warmer which in turn helps with arthritis and sore muscles.)

antique clove boxCloves: This amazing spice is high in potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium and fiber.

Ancient archives show that cloves have been used for over 2,000 years. It is used as an antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory.

Nutmeg: This is an ancient herb that has been used for centuries in India and China. The spice was mostly used for the digestive and nervous system. The compounds in nutmeg like elemicin and myristicin are said to have both soothing and stimulant properties on the brain. In traditional medicine, it is used as a carminative, anti-depressant, digestive and aphrodisiac. Nutmeg is a good source of potassium, manganese, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper. It is also high in vitamin C, B complex, vitamin A, riboflavin, folic acid, niacin and flavonoid anti-oxidants.

Caution: It is nearly impossible to overuse nutmeg, since all you need is a small dusting for flavoring and for health benefits. However, consumption of nutmeg in large doses may cause heart palpitations, sweating, nausea and stomach spasms accompanied by vomiting, body pain and in severe cases, delirium and hallucination with a sensation of doom. So use nutmeg in moderation.
