Rosemary is my favorite herb.
It grows all year as an evergreen where I live and is an outstanding multi-purpose herb. It’s been utilized in traditional medicine for generations. Now, a new study has some interesting news for the plant.
Science has found that rosemary consists of carnosic acid which fights complimentary radical damage in the brain. It likewise helps the natural acids in the body protect DNA from complimentary extreme damage. And the news gets even better.
According to the research study published in Therapeutic Advances in Psychopharmacology, the, the chemical substance 1,8-cineole found in rosemary is accountable for improved memory function.
Their findings even suggested that rosemary enhances memory function by 75% simply from smelling it! I think Shakespeare had it right when, in Hamlet, Ophelia states: ‘There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance: pray, love, keep in mind.’.
I’m going to have to plant some rosemary in my garden now.
