What Exactly Is Pumpkin Spice?
Pumpkin spice is the popularized name for a blend of spices that compliment pumpkin-flavored dishes and drinks. It’s made up of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove. These are traditional fall flavors, but became more well known after the rise in love of the PSL (pumpkin spice latte). As delicious as they are when they join forces, each of these spices are packed with their own set of benefits.
Cinnamon is a powerful spice used all over the world for many different herbal remedies and medicinal properties. Its antidiabetic, lipid-lowering, and cardiovascular-disease-lowering compounds make it useful for improving metabolism.
