Ancient Greeks also used it to help stimulate the brain and improve memory. Researchers recently have found that rosemary does in fact help the memory, often within just a few short hours. A study was recently done with a group of 28 older adults. What the study found was that at low doses (750 mg), rosemary showed a significant benefit. However, when a higher dose was administered (6,000 mg), there seemed to be an impairment of memory. This showed the scientists that low doses over a period of time were the best option. One reason that rosemary is so great for our brains is that it contains a number of unique bioactive compounds. One of these includes CA, or carnosic acid, which has been shown to protect the brain from strokes and degeneration. It has also been shown that inhaling the oil can help boost memory, mood, and concentration. So what do we get from this study? Eating rosemary in small doses on a regular basis can help protect your mind, improve your memory and mood, and help you concentrate better. Overall, you will be a more productive person.
