In the town of Acciaroli, Italy, one in ten people live to over 100 years old, and without many of the problems that plague aging populations elsewhere around the globe. When scientists visited Acciaroli, they identified one potentially crucial variable: the villagers ate rosemary, and a lot of it. Rosemary’s benefits are well-documented: it has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties. It can reportedly ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Several research scientists have found that rosmarinic acid – rosemary’s active ingredient – can offer a number of health benefits to regular consumers.
Founder David Spencer-Percival was intrigued by this story. He was even more intrigued to find that there were no Rosemary products available on the market. David designed No1 Rosemary Water as a drink to remember; something that would provide a convenient means of incorporating this reinvigorating herb into conventional Western diets.
Bottled according to strict quality standards, the drink contains pure 4% rosemary extract, concentrating the essential properties of the plant into a refreshing, luxurious still or sparkling beverage – retaining the health benefits and the distinct Mediterranean flavour. 1p for every bottle sold is donated to Alzheimer's Research UK.
