Rosemary and Alzheimer's disease. Dr. James Duke, former U.S. Department of Agriculture chief of medicinal plant research, and one of the world's leading authorities on medicinal plants, is convinced that rosemary may retard the progression of Alzheimer's disease. He explains that Alzheimer's has been blamed on oxidative and inflammatory processes and on the breakdown or deficiency of choline and acetylcholine in in the brain.

"Rosemary contains more than a dozen antioxidants and a half-dozen compounds reported to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine. It's fabulous that the classical herb of remembrance has so many compounds that might help people suffering from this disease," Duke says.
