Rosemary tea for memory

Rosemary has long been noted for its connection with memory. 

Fresh rosemary make a wonderful, aromatic, vitamin and mineral enriched tea that can be enjoyed hot or cold. Recent studies confirm that is good for your memory.

Rosemary grows up to 6-feet tall in its native Mediterranean climate. The leaves on this evergreen perennial herb are needle-shaped and aromatic.

Studies confirm what ancient Greeks knew: rosemary helps memory. It may even retard Alzheimer's Disease.

Rosemary contains antioxidants and compounds that prevent a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine from breaking down, according to Dr. James Duke, a leading botanical scientist, and former U.S. Department of Agriculture Chief of Medicinal Plant Research.

As a fresh or dried herb, it also makes a wonderful pot of tea. Just toss a sprig of fresh rosemary into a teapot, pour in some hot water and allow it to steep for 10-minutes. If your rosemary is in dried form, place a tablespoon into a metal tea-infuser, pour hot water and steep . It makes a delightful tea that can be enjoyed all day, even when it is cold but you can add honey for extra sweetness or lemon or a combination of herbs like mint or chamomile to create your own custom brew.

Rosemary is an excellent source of Vitamins A, B6 and C, iron, calcium, folate, manganese, magnesium, potassium and copper.
