Dr. Mark Hyman raves about rosemary:
"Used for centuries as a medicinal remedy, rosemary holds up to modern science as effective herbal therapy. It’s known to be a rich source of antioxidants, fights inflammation, and also improves cognitive performance, similar to the effects of spearmint. Using just the aroma of rosemary has been linked to increased speed and accuracy in cognition testing, and also improved mood. The active compound linked to this effect is 1,8-cineole, which can pass the blood-brain barrier and even prevent the breakdown of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Rosemary is a carminative, a class of herb that supports the digestive system by regulating gut contractions, relieving cramping, and reducing gas, so it’s especially beneficial during large holiday meals!

Why you should eat more herbs and spices?
Herbs have been used since ancient times for their medicinal properties, mostly concentrated into teas and tinctures. More recently, their healthful value as a food ingredient has been realized. For one, herbs add a burst of flavor to food, allowing you to cut back on salt without sacrificing taste. And several herbs, including parsley, have significant amounts of the essential vitamins A, C and K.
But the true power of herbs lies in their wealth of protective polyphenols — plant compounds with potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Piles of studies show that polyphenols in herbs help combat such diseases as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and more. Polyphenols are anti-microbial, so they can help protect us from harmful bacteria as well. Although many of the studies on herbs’ effects have involved concentrated solutions of the leaves’ active components, there is evidence that their benefits still apply when they are cooked and eaten as part of a regular meal, too.
