Fall is just around the corner, and if you are anything like me you can already close your eyes and taste the pumpkin spice. Before you judge me too quickly for being fall obsessed (which may be true), fall spices aren’t just nice to taste in your latte, but also offer many health benefits including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pro-digestion properties. In fact, cloves are one of the most potent sources of polyphenols. One study published in 2009 even stated that, “…long term consumption of diets rich in plant polyphenols offer protection against development of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis and neurodegenerative diseases.”1 So embrace your fall obsession, I give you my professional blessing! Pair this easy, fall spiced yogurt with Persona’s Hair, Skin, and Nails for a nice protein packed breakfast or snack while supporting your fall #hairgoals.
