Sage

Also Known As:

Salvia officinalis

Uses:

  • Menopausal hot flushes
  • Excessive sweating
  • Sore throats

Description

Sage is commonly used to enhance the taste of food. The plant is native to the Mediterranean, although it also grows well in temperate climes.

How It Works

Sage is belived to rebalance the sweat-regulating mechanism in the brain which can be thrown out of balance by hormonal changes taking place during the menopause.
Excessive sweating in women or men (eg. palms, feet) may also be corrected by Sage.
In addition, Sage has a separate role in preventing sweating. The combination of these two actions makes Sage an excellent preparation to help with the hot flushes which often accompany the decline in hormonal levels at the time of the menopause.
Sage has also been found to possess antibacterial properties and can be very beneficial for sore throats when used as a gargle.
