Rosemary may not be the ‘star’ or the main ingredient in the lamb, chicken, pork, or fish dishes that we enjoy – but this herb definitely plays a big role in the taste and the health department. The thing that I like about rosemary is the smell and the flavor that it brings to food. I’m not much of a cook so I cannot share with you my favorite rosemary recipe – but what I can tell you about is the health benefits of this oh-so-fragrant herb.
Rosemary is rich in dietary fibers, iron and calcium. The components of this herb help boost the immune system. It also increases blood circulation, helps improve your concentration and helps decrease the risks of asthma attacks.
In herbal alternative medicine, rosemary helps with muscle pain, rheumatism, mild spasms, wounds and circulatory problems.
Finally, the good thing about rosemary is that you can grow the plant right in your own backyard, lawn – or even from an apartment window! Aside from using rosemary as meat seasoning, you can puree it to use as a dipping sauce, and it can also be added to your favorite soup recipe.
