Do you want to live a long and fruitful life?
Let Rosemary help you do so.
I am not speaking of a person but an herb that is native to the Mediterranean, but is now grown all over the world.
Since days of old, rosemary has been used as an additive in cooking as well as a medicine. We did not realize just how powerful rosemary was until some studies were done on residents of a remote village in Italy.
Because residents in this village seemed to be living longer than average, the University of California at San Diego and Sapineza University in Rome studied why this was. They came to one conclusion… Rosemary.
It seems that nearly every meal made in the Italian village of Acciaroli has plenty of rosemary in it. And, it is the rosemary they grow there which is stronger than most of the versions we know.
It is now believed that wonderful rosemary is a herb that will help us live a longer and more fulfilling life. It contains iron, calcium and Vitamin B6.
Let’s take you through some of the benefits rosemary can provide:
Boosts The Immune System
Rosemary has been proven to be rich in antioxidants which are known to boost our immune systems.
While not absolutely proven yet, many experts believe rosemary improves our brain’s memory power. Hopefully, scientists will discover how they can use rosemary to treat Alzheimers.
Studies have shown that rosemary essential oil is a great way to lower stress levels. The University of Maryland Medical Center reported that rosemary oil in conjunction with other oils could lower cortisol levels which is a leading cause of anxiety.
All over Europe, rosemary is used as a treatment for indigestion. There are no scientific studies proving so, but if so many people swear by it, rosemary must work.
While I mentioned improved immune properties, rosemary has shown aggressive defense against bacterial infections. It is also linked to preventing Staph infections.
Studies have showed that massaging the scalp with rosemary oil can improve hair growth and stop hair loss. Many also add lavender, thyme and cedarwood oils.
Protection Against Brain Damage
Studies have also shown that rosemary may be quite beneficial in people who have had strokes to protect against brain damage and improve their recovery.
Freshen The Breath
Rosemary is a member of the mint family, so it is a wonderful herb to use as a breath freshener. You should steep the rosemary leaves in hot water and gargle. It eliminates bacteria and leaves your breath fresh.
Studies have shown that rosemary oil is a wonderful treatment to rub on achy muscles and arthritic areas to soothe the pain and improve circulation.
Many studies have showed favorable signs supporting rosemary against cancer. One study showed that crude rosemary oil slowed the spread of leukemia and breast carcinoma.
Another published report stated that adding rosemary to ground beef greatly reduces the formation of cancer causing agents during the cooking process.
Because of the diuretic nature of rosemary, it will help push out toxins quicker from our bodies during urination.
The most common eye disease, macular degeneration seems to be no match for carnosic acid which rosemary has a lot of.
Those are just a few of the known benefits of rosemary. Some other areas believed to be benefited from the herb are:
- skin health and texture
- high blood pressure
- and more
Rosemary just may be the answer to a ton of this world’s problems.
Now if you are using rosemary essential oil, it is not wise to take it internally.
Regular rosemary is a great spice to use on your foods and can help it taste great as well as helping your health.
So have you had your rosemary today?
She can help!
