Herbs have traditionally been used to strength the body and help treat disease. The herb rosemary, when used in the proper form and amount, can be beneficial to both pets and humans. Researchers at the University of Maryland Medical Center have found that in humans, rosemary can help support memory, relieve muscle pain and spasms, stimulate hair growth and support the circulatory and nervous systems. They further state that it may even help prevent some forms of cancer, or inhibit its growth.
Unfortunately, incorrect information that rosemary extract might be harmful to pets has been circulating on the Internet. We vigorously object to these false statements. Studies have proven that rosemary extract is safe and has numerous health benefits. In fact, rosemary extract has been a pet food ingredient for more than 20 years. The regulating agency for pet food in the United States, the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), approves its use. Negative side effects cited on the web actually pertain to rosemary oil, a toxic oil meant strictly for topical use. Rosemary extract is purified which removes any trace of rosemary oil.
