The whole plant has properties such as tonic, anticonvulsive, energizing and antiseptic.

It is administered for the treatment of intestinal infections, diarrhea, colitis, flatulence, liver disorders and jaundice.

Rosemary also is indicated in the treatment of influenza, colds and wounds in the oral cavity

The herbal extract stimulates the circulatory system as increases blood flow in the vessel. [1]

The pharmacological properties are thought to be based on the enhancement of superoxide and hydroxyl scavenging, inhibition of both lowdensity lipoprotein and oil oxidation, inhibition of haemolysis and hyaluronidase and β- hexosaminidase activities.

In vivo studies using mouse models of Alzheimer's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis have shown that rosmarinic acid significantly alleviates memory impairment associated with amyloid beta protein neurotoxicity and significantly delays disease onset. [2] [3]

The anti-inflammatory effects of RosA along with its immunomodulatory effects may also make it a novel agent for the treatment of auto-immune disorders. [4] These findings suggest that RA has potentially anti-fibrogenic effects and can be a promising candidate for ameliorating liver fibrosis. [5]
