Answer: It’s a very healthy addition.
I live in south Texas and rosemary is abundant. I have rosemary bushes in my yard. They are beautiful for the landscape and add a wonderful fragrance. When I prepare dinner, I step outside and take a few clippings. It kicks my meal up a couple of notches. Here’s what the World’s Healthiest Foods had to say:
The wonderful smell of rosemary is often associated with good food and great times. But it could just as easily be associated with good health. Rosemary contains substances that are useful for stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation, and improving digestion. Rosemary also contains anti-inflammatory compounds that may make it useful for reducing the severity of asthma attacks. In addition, rosemary has been shown to increase the blood flow to the head and brain, improving concentration. So, the next time you enhance the flavor of some special dish with rosemary, congratulate yourself for a wise as well as delicious choice.
