Rosemary and its Benefits

Updated: Feb 10, 2023

Rosmarinus Officinalis: Salvia Rosmarinus: Rosemary is classified with plants like sage, basil, thyme, lavender, mint, and oregano. these all fit into the salvia Genus category of herbs. One of the earliest herbs documented throughout history. This is a native Mediterranean plant. the original word Rosmarinus "Ros" meaning (Dew), and "Marinus" meaning (Sea), can withstand the harshest of climates.

Some benefits include Memory/ and sensory enhancement, enhanced blood flow, headaches, and mood enhancers.

Its volatile oils hold power in the benefits you receive. these oils are found within the leaves. Other diterpenes' and Phenolic derivate's act as antioxidants.

Some major constituents include:

  • caffeine acid

  • carbonic acid

  • chlorogenic acid

  • oleanolic acid

  • rosmarinic acid

  • ursolic acid

Rosmarinic acid is associated with rosemary and other herbs like Thyme, sage basil, marjoram, oregano, and mint. Rosemary leaves have been used throughout history for their antibacterial, antifungal, and its antiseptic properties. this includes powerful compounds like carbonic and rosemaries acids.

In Studies, scientists found Carnosic acid and rosmarinic acid to most likely be the main bioactive antimicrobial compounds present in rosemary extract. essential oil.

Adding rosemary to your diet will increase the growth of healthy gut bacteria and healthy microbial. Biotin is created within the gut. Rosemary will kill the bacteria which slows down the rate of good bacteria in the gut. This will increase the amount of hair growth cells produced during the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle.

  • Carnosic acid: A phenolic (catecholic) diterpene, endowed with(antioxidative) and antimicrobial properties.

  • Rosmarinic acid: a natural polyphenol antioxidant found in many Lamiaceae herbs like oregano, sage, lemon balm, rosemary, and peppermint.

  • Herbs protect the body.

  • Antioxidant protects your cells against free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced when the body breaks down food, radiation, pollution or tobacco smoke.

  • Antimicrobial: kills microorganisms or stops their growth.

  • Anti-oxidative: stops oxidation

  • Oxidative stress is caused by free radicals.

In closing, It's not that Rosemary is growing your hair. Everyone experiences hair growth. The hair growth cycle is thrown off balance. Oxidative stress causes the hair shaft to detach from the blood supply which in turn slows down the hair growth cycle. With bacteria on the scalp, the growth cycle remains in the telogen (resting stage) or catagen (detaching stage).

When you kill the bacteria the follicle goes back to its normal cycle which is displayed normally.

Cons: rosemary kills good a bad bacteria. Herbs must be balanced or you will lose good and bad bacteria. Most that experienced balding had no bad bacteria so the rosemary killed all good bacteria causing oxidative stress, balding, and telogen effluvium.

Herbs have to be studied before use or you will experience balding. Every person can not use every herb, What herbs do you want to learn about next?
