And besides being tasty, rosemary also offers these health benefits:
1. It’s good for the brain
Rosemary contains carnosic acid that protects nerve cells from stress and overstimulation. It also prevents the formation of beta-amyloid plaques. This protein is one of the main causes of Alzheimer’s development. Other cognitive disorders such as dementia and balance disorders can be caused by the production of the enzyme acetyl cholinesterase. Rosemary suppresses its production, even with a low dose.
2. Rosemary helps with weight loss
When you sprinkle rosemary over a meal, you digest the fat in the meal better. The herb does not change your food intake, but it does improve your fat loss.
3. It stimulates blood circulation
Rosemary ensures better blood circulation. If you suffer from low blood pressure and often suffer from cold hands or feet, the herb helps improve your circulation.
4. It works against headaches
When your gallbladder or liver is overloaded, you can get headaches. Since rosemary works against toxins, it can help with headaches.
5. It relieves respiratory problems
The scent of rosemary can help with stuck mucus in, for example, a cold. It may not make you better, but it can help you breathe a little better again.
