Rosemary – a Herb That Can Help You Remember
Herbs are used every day mostly as a part of our cuisines. We’ve been using some for centuries. One such herb is rosemary. It has been used since the times of Ancient Greece. Greeks applied rosemary sprigs in their hair to help them during stressful times. In many parts of the world, rosemary is used to improve the memory. It was also used by Ophelia as a reference in Hamlet when she says that rosemary should be used to recall, love and implore.
There are numerous studies which prove that rosemary is abundant in Carnosic corrosive that can protect the cerebrum. It also contains some acids that protect our DNA as well as the cells from our body from the damage of the free radicals. Rosemary is full of different compounds that have the ability to keep the breakdown of acetylcholine. This actually protects the cells in our mind which we use when we think and speak to each other as well as for our memory.
Tests performed on rosemary essential oil proved that in 60-75% of people their memory and the complete brain work was improved.
There is a compound in rosemary called 1,8-cineole which improves the work of our memory. It also improves people’s precision, speed, temperament as well as anxiety. Different tests from the Therapeutic Advances in Psychopharmacology proved that there were more positive results with the use of more 1,8-cineole applied in the circulatory system of people.
As you can see, besides improving the condition of our brain and memory, rosemary can improve our health in other ways as well. It can be used to treat digestive problems as well as headaches. Some studies have shown that rosemary can also reduce pain. So, why not start sniffing it? It’ll surely do wonders for your health.
