Rosemary tea has impressive health benefits from the rosmarinic and caffeic acids present in the herb, along with salicylic acid, potassium, and various antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antioxidant compounds. Drinking rosemary tea is very good for people who are suffering from indigestion, anemia, Alzheimer’s, dementia, arthritis, chronic pain, hair loss, high blood pressure, high toxicity, anxiety, stress, depression, and a number of skin conditions.
Rich antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, combined with increased circulation. Studies have specifically looked at this tea’s effect on eczema, where blood flow and anti-inflammatory compounds have lessened or eliminated symptoms of this common skin condition.
Rosemary tea is known as a stimulating substance for the circulatory system because it has anticoagulant properties, similar to aspirin, which can improve the flow of blood through the body. This can provide an energy boost and improve the body’s ability to repair and oxygenate the extremities of the body.
Certain antioxidant compounds found in rosemary, namely carnosic acid, have been proven to stimulate memory and protect neural pathways from being filled with beta-amyloid plaque.
Aids in Digestion
The anti-spasmodic and carminative properties of rosemary tea make it ideal for people suffering from indigestion, constipation, bloating, and cramping.
One of the key ingredients of this powerful tea is carnosic acid. Research has shown it to reduce the levels of nitric acid in the body that can be a trigger for inflammation. In combination with other antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, this can help people suffering from arthritis, headaches, muscle pain, joint disorders, hemorrhoids, and hypersensitivity to allergens.
The pain-relieving qualities of rosemary tea are well known and are largely the result of salicylate, which is a compound quite similar to aspirin. Whether you are recovering from an illness, surgery or injury, or perhaps someone with chronic pain, this tea can help relieve those symptoms.
Rosemary can improve the health and function of the liver, and also detoxify the body by stimulating urination. This can help the body eliminate toxins more rapidly and relieve strain on a number of organ systems.
