Surprising Health Benefits of Pumpkin Spice
The pumpkin spice latte is officially back at Starbucks as of today... in August. However, according to Bustle, there are some health benefits to drinking on of them.
- Cinnamon has been known to help control blood sugar levels. If you're worried about your blood sugar though, you may not want a latte pumped with sweetener, so maybe you could put it on your morning oatmeal instead?
- Ginger is often used to treat nausea and vomiting if you happen to have an upset stomach. Eating a slice of pumpkin pie may not help settle your stomach though, so I would suggest ginger tea instead of a latte if you're stomach is turning.
- Pumpkin was officially added into Starbuck's pumpkin spice latte in 2015, so with that I can say that pumpkin is a great source of fiber and provides you with vitamin A which is great for your eye sight and skin.
Pumpkin spice lattes contain a lot of great things for you, but it certainly won't contain enough of any of the ingredients to really help any ailment that you may have. I guess you should try to get the trenta-sized latte if you're really determined!
