You will probably be hearing a lot about Rosemary extract in the coming years. Much like the excitement created by Turmeric ten year ago, when it became clear that it could aid in many age-related problems, Rosemary extract is currently the subject of some very interesting studies now the scientists are becoming more aware of its traditional medicinal uses.
Rosemary has a long history in folk medicine, dating back to ancient Greece. It has traditionally been used to improve memory and digestion, boost the immune and circulatory system, help alleviate muscle pain, treat colic, help with painful periods, improve breathing, and promote hair growth.
New research is focusing on its possible uses in the current surge in blood sugar ailments and age related mental decline as well as improving cardiovascular health.
Blood Sugar Control
Rosemary contains abundant polyphenols including carnosic acid, carnosol, and rosmarinic acid all of which have been shown to aid in balancing blood sugar levels. Recent studies by The NCBI, National Center for Biotechnology Information, support the use of Rosemary Extract for blood sugar control.
Aiding Cognitive Function
The same polyphenols that aid in blood sugar control have been shown to help in preventing mental decline and improving cognitive function in the elderly. Research has shown these compounds to reduce brain inflammation and cell death. The antioxidant qualities of the polyphenols aid in improving mental clarity. They are currently being studied extensively as a natural way to slow down mental decline. The carnosic acid in Rosemary has been shown to aid in preventing free radical damage to brain neurons.
Antioxidant Properties and Cell Health
We all know about the positive effects of antioxidants on general health and serious illness. It turns out that Rosemary has some of the more powerful antioxidants ever researched. Free radical damage from various elements of our environment is often a major factor in declining health and Rosemary’s polyphenols can be powerful shield, promoting health at the cellular level, particularly blood, liver, breast, lung and skin cells.
The polyphenols in Rosemary have been shown to reduce allergic response to dust and other airborne pollens and particles. In studies of the effect, Rosemary extract not only reduced the common symptoms of allergies, but slowed the body’s response. Combining Rosemary with another great herb for allergy sufferers, Nettle Leaf, could provide an effective natural approach that avoids the common drugs and steroids used in medical treatments.
Blood Pressure and Cardiovascular Health
The polyphenols in Rosemary Extract are showing promise in slowing LDL cholesterol, reducing inflammation, and preventing sticky blood platelets, all of which contribute to better circulation and cardiovascular health.
More and more age-old natural remedies are coming back to life. In recent years we have seen the dramatic emergence of Turmeric, Cinnamon, and Ginger Root as natural alternatives. New research into the safety and efficacy of these herbs propelled them into the limelight. Rosemary extract could very well be the next of the emerging herbal superstars.
