BOOST Your Memory NOW By Sniffing This Common Herb
Written by: Lindsay Sibson
As the saying goes, “you don’t know what you don’t know.”
Well… for me recently… I never knew how difficult it would be to get a new cell phone number after having the same one for 15 years.
My brain just doesn’t remember phone numbers – that’s what my cell phone is for! I’m about a few minutes shy of having to tattoo my number on my hand!
You’ve been there too. Perhaps you walked into a room and forgot what you needed. Have you ever met someone and moments later forgot their name?
Luckily, there are simple methods that you can start using NOW to help improve your memory.
Let me introduce you to the power of sniffing ROSEMARY.
What Is ROSEMARY?
- A woody, perennial herb with fragrant needle-like leaves.
- An evergreen shrub in the mint family.
- Used as a flavoring agent in culinary dishes.
- Used to create perfumes.
Why Is ROSEMARY Memory-Boosting?
Studies have found that carnosic acid, which is found in rosemary, is effective at fighting off free radical damage to the brain.
These natural acids help in protecting your body’s DNA and cells from becoming harmed and negatively impacting your health.
Rosemary also stops the breakdown of acetylcholine, the chemical in charge of inducing communication between brain cells that are responsible for memory and reasoning.
When inhaled, rosemary essential oil can significantly enhance the performance of your memory and overall cognitive performance.
Furthermore, a study conducted by Mark Moss concluded that when participants inhaled diffused rosemary oil, they performed much better on cognitive tests than people who used no scent at all (to read more about the study, CLICK HERE). He stated that:
“In this study we focused on prospective memory, which involves the ability to remember events that will occur in the future and to remember to complete tasks at particular times. This is critical for everyday functioning, for example when someone needs to remember to post a birthday card or to take medication at a particular time.”
A better functioning brain simply from smelling an herb? IT IS POSSIBLE!
How To Use Rosemary To Boost Your Memory:
- Buy a rosemary plant to keep in your home.
- Dab rosemary essential oil on your body to easily inhale the scent.
- Incorporate rosemary into your cooking.
