Cinnamon is not only high in antioxidants but it also reduced inflammation and can protect the heart. In this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice, cinnamon makes up the bulk of the recipe.
Nutmeg Must be Grated with a Nutmeg Grater
Nutmeg can come in either the spice form or as a nut and must be graded with a nutmeg grater to be used. Most commonly, you’ll find nutmeg in a very small spice container in most major grocery stores.
Nutmeg is also an immune booster, but also supports the kidneys. One teaspoon of good quality honey with a full pinch of ground nutmeg will help rid the body of kidney infection and stones.
Ginger has Anti-inflammatory Properties
We love using ginger in recipes here at Clean Cuisine. You can use it in it’s natural fresh state for recipes. But for this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice, you want it dried and powdered to combine the best with the other spices.
Top health benefits of ginger can also include relieving stomach discomfort, reducing inflammation, increasing circulation and strengthening the immune system.
Allspice Aids in Digestion and Boosts Immunity
Are you noticing a trend? All of the spices listed here are helpful to the immune system while being anti-inflammatory. Maybe instead of a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice, we should have called it a recipe for Anti-inflammatory Spice.
Cloves are Anti-Bacterial and Improve Liver Function
Although there’s not a lot of cloves in this recipe, a small amount can be beneficial to the body. By providing anti-bacterial properties along with improved liver function and measuring high in antioxidants, cloves is an excellent addition to this recipe.
