About Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice (aka pumpkin pie spice) is a mix of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, allspice, and cinnamon.

Nutrition Benefits of Pumpkin Spice

To discuss the nutrition benefits of pumpkin spice, we would have to analyze the nutrition benefits of each spice individually.

Nutmeg: We have a separate page for Nutmeg.  In summary, Nutmeg has been linked to a variety of benefits including pain relief, soothing indigestion, brain function, detoxification, skin health, immune system, oral health, improving blood circulation, reducing insomnia, and as an anti-cancer (leukemia).

Cloves: Known best for supporting digestion, antimicrobial, anti-cancer, liver protector, and immune booster.

Ginger: We have a separate page dedicated for ginger, as we use it in both our Ancient Greens and Ancient Delight Superfood Mixes.

Allspice: Known best for anti-inflammatory, gut health, and anti-bacterial properties.

Cinnamon: We have a separate page dedicated for cinnamon, as we use it in our Ancient Delight Superfood Mix.

Why Raw Cashews?

The benefit of roasted is that the heating process will kill any potential dangers from bad bacteria.  However, roasted cashews are typically roasted in soybean or canola oil and have salt added to them.  The roasting process also slightly degrades the nutrition quality of the nuts.  We don’t need or want those extras when putting cashews into a smoothie.
