Introduction: Plants are nutritional sources of minerals; the same ones strengthen and offer great efficacy in the treatment of different diseases, it plays an essential function in nutrition. Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) used like medicinal plant and spice, the chemical composition was essential oils, phenolic acids, flavonoids and terpens, and it is considered as source of natural antioxidants. The aim was evaluate the minerals concentrations in R. officinalis leaves cultivated with water treatment with static magnetic fields. Material and Methods: To magnetic treatment was used an induction magnetic of 0.12 T and a control. The content of water, dry mass, carbohydrates were evaluated, and the content of minerals by the method of mass spectrometry with source of plasma of inductive coupling (ICP MS). Results: The plants with 0.12 T was values of dry mass (5.98 ± 1.02 g) and control plant (3.75 ±0.08 g); water content to 0.12 T plants (65.0%) and the control plant (69%); carbohydrates to 0.12 T plant (0.35 ± 0.034 mg/L) and the control plant (0.16 ± 0.050 mg/L). For the concentration of minerals in 0.12 T plant, the bigger values of the ions were calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, sodium, copper, phosphor, sulphur and zinc, in comparison with the control plants. Conclusions: This work contributes to increment the scientific information about the chemical compounds in the R. officinalis and establishing the sustainable of this species with more quality. This plant can use as natural antioxidant, and the same time it can be consumed in the nutritive products for a better food safety.
