Rosemary has always held a strong position in traditional beliefs and medicine. Through the centuries, the methods of communication kept changing, but rosemary was always important - cuneiform scripts, Pliny's De Materia Medica, orders of Charlemagne, writings of Joan of Valois ... Rosemary was praised everywhere for its numerous healing properties. Some of them were far-fetched, but others stood the test of time and are still relevant today, confirmed by scientific studies.
It is normal to feel a sensation of tension and anxiety from time to time, especially when under stress. Rosemary is an excellent tool to deal with such situations in a natural way. A study has shown that taking 500 mg of rosemary orally two times daily for a month will significantly reduce your level of anxiety and improve your memory and quality of sleep.
Rosemary also improved the mood and alleviated mild depression by reducing the inflammation of the hippocampus - the part of your brain that influences your emotions, memory, and ability to learn. We could say that it is an excellent cognitive stimulant, as it influences your focus and helps you achieve the goals you set for yourself, be it sports or studies.
Rosemary also activates the blood flow, wakes you up, improves circulation, and helps you to cleanse your liver.
A study, even though performed on animals, also pointed out the efficiency of rosemary in fending off excess weight and treating fatty liver. Rats who were given rosemary didn't gain weight despite a high-fat diet.
