ROSEMARINUS OFFICINALIS (Rosemary)
Rosemary is one of my preferred culinary herbs. It doesn't only ads a very good taste to meals and dishes prepared with it but it also provides us with a very anti-cancer ingredient, Carnosol. Carnosol is one of the phenolic extracts present in Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), able to inhibit tumour formation .
As reported in many scientific articles and literature, phenolic compounds have been studied and used as very useful anti-tumour agents. They have an inhibitory effect on cancer cells invasion and are able to prevent on a certain degree metastasis .
In another scientific study, the intake of herbs used in the Mediterranean diet (rosemary, sage, parsley...etc.) was proven to have an inverse relationship with the occurrence of lung cancer, another prove Mediterranean diet is healthy , not being this one the only reported benefit because other trials and tests done on rosemary have proven that rosemary can help to inhibit human colon cancer cell growth.
