Added info:

Cinnamon has high antioxidant activity, supports digestion, and has anti-inflammatory and blood-sugar-lowering properties.

Nutmeg is rich in antioxidants (such as phenolic compounds, essential oils, and plant pigments), has anti-inflammatory properties, and may boost libido.

Cardamom strengthens the body’s immune response, improves digestion, and may decrease elevated liver enzymes, triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
