This tasty evergreen shrub has strong anti-inflammatory properties and effectively inhibits the inflammatory response in the body. It contains high levels of calcium, iron, and vitamin B6 too, along with a host of different antioxidants that help prevent things such as cancer.
Rosemary has been studied to help lower cortisol levels and reduce anxiety as well! But the greatest finding with rosemary is that just the scent itself helps boost memory by 15%!
