What it is: Rosemary is an evergreen shrub that’s easily grown anywhere that's warm (including your windowsill). In addition to its anti-inflammatory effects, studies have found that rosemary may lower cortisol levels and help reduce anxiety, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
A recent study of plant-based anti-inflammatories showed that, while rosemary doesn’t have quite the anti-inflammatory super powers that ginger does, it still significantly inhibits the inflammatory response. It's also a powerful antioxidant and contains high levels of calcium, iron, and vitamin B6.
How to use it: Try stuffing a chicken with onions and fresh rosemary or sprinkling fresh rosemary over potatoes before roasting them. It's also a great aromatic addition to any number of pasta and meat sauces. (Note: The UMMC recommends you take in no more than four to six grams of the dried herb daily, as mega-doses may cause allergic reactions.)
