Organic Dried Rosemary is a woody perennial herb which grows freely in Europe and is native to the Mediteranean region.  This fragrant herb has evergreen, needle-like leaves which are harvested and then dried naturally.

Nutritional Information

The Nutritional Benefits of Organic Rosemary.

Rosemary is high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Thiamin (B1), Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Manganese. It is a source of Riboflavin, Potassium, Zinc and Copper.

B-Vitamins: This group of vitamins contribute to normal psychological function, normal function of the immune system and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Zinc: This nutrient contributes to normal function of the immune system, DNA synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, cognitive function, fertility and reproduction, metabolism of fatty acids, protein synthesis as well as the maintenance of bone, hair, skin and nails. It also protects cells from oxidative stress which is so important in a world where our bodies are exposed to so many toxins daily.

Magnesium: This wonderful nutrient is often referred to as natures tranquilliser.  It is necessary for the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and electrolyte balance.  It is also needed for normal nervous system and muscle function.

Vitamin C: This well known nutrient contributes to normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise and is necessary for normal collagen formation.  It is also essential to normal functioning of the immune system and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Copper: This trace mineral is needed to protect cells from oxidative stress and for normal function of the immune system. It also contributes to normal connective tissue and functioning of the nervous system.

Calcium: It is a common myth that we need to eat dairy to get an adequate calcium intake.   Many plant based foods boast high levels of it.  Calcium is needed for the normal maintenance of bones and teeth and digestive enzyme function.  It is also needed for normal energy-yielding metabolism and neurotransmission in the body.

Family Tip:

  1. We love to sprinkle rosemary over our roast potatoes.
  2. Another great way of using Rosemary is to infuse it with olive oil – this makes for a really tasty salad dressing.
  3. Try a herbal infusion, simply add hot water and allow to sit for 5 minute then strain.
