You can strengthen your memory through eating rosemary, as became known from a study presented at the annual conference of the British Psychological Society at Harrogate.
Rosemary’s ether oil affects the brain, enhancing the possibilities of long-time memory by inhibiting ferments that block the normal functions of the brain.
The research involved 66 volunteers divided into 2 groups. The groups were placed in different rooms, one of which reeked with the smell of rosemary ether oil. After that they were offered to do several tests on memory.
It emerged that people who breathed in rosemary oil achieved better results. They had a high level of 1.8-cineole, a compound of rosemary oil, in the blood. It triggers off chemical processes that influence the memory.
