When I make some recipes using this blend, I’ll list them down below so you have some ideas 🙂
Wait! It gets better. These spices all have their own great health benefits!
Cinnamon lowers cholesterol, keeps your arteries healthy, manage blood sugar levels, and is a potent cancer-fighter!
Ginger is a natural remedy for nausea, is incredibly anti-inflammatory, improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body, and is also a potent cancer fighter!
Nutmeg is great for digestion, aids sleep, good for dental health, keeps your brain sharp, and contains minerals such as potassium, calcium, iron and manganese.
Allspice holds digestive benefits, is a mild pain reliever, and exhibits antioxidant properties in the fight against disease-causing free-radicals. Traditionally, this spice has been used to treat bacterial and fungal infections as well as coughs, chills, bronchitis and depression.
