Today we celebrate those who love us unconditionally.
I hope you are having a wonderful September, Sunday. I also hope your own Grands are still around and you have the opportunity to extend some love today. Grandparents are so important. They give us their time, and they somehow convince us that we are the most special person in their world. Even if we are the tenth most special grandchild in the whole-wide-world. They give us identity, belonging, roots and security. I would love just ten more minutes with my Nana and other Grandparents. They were my role models.
There is some good news for Grandparents, and for anyone worried about their memory, and other age related illness. This news may help to permanently delay memory loss and boost our brain's reasoning capacity.
Scientists working in Great Britain, studied Rosemary and its impact on memory and reasoning. Their experiments reported some exciting news for improving our mood, memory, mental clarity, and cognitive reasoning skills. Dr Moss found Rosemary had a dramatic ability to enhance both our “mood,” or attitude as well as producing significant enhancements the quality our memory. Dr. Mark Moss at Northumbria University, in Newcastle, published his finding in the International Journal of Neuroscience.
This test was designed to determine what effect the herb, Rosemary had on our performance and attitude. One hundred test subjects were simply exposed to Rosemary asked to take a whiff. This study centered around the human olfactory perception, or our sense of smell.
We say, “an apple a day to keep the doctor away”, but soon, “a whiff of Rosemary keeps my memory Okay!”
Other Benefits of Rosemary
Well, the tiny pine tree, scruffy looking herb, Rosemary, is a wonder. It is casually placed in each garden for its aroma is just the thing to aid and stimulate our brain messages.
Shakespeare got it right!
There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance; pray you, love,
remember. And there is pansies, that’s for thoughts.
-William Shakespeare (Hamlet, Act 4, Scene 5)
