Viridian Organic Sage Leaf helps alleviate hot flushes & excessive heat from the body.

MENOPAUSE in the UK herbalists employ sage to treat symptoms of menopause, such as hot flushes. An unpublished, preliminary German study with patients suffering from excessive perspiration (hyperhydrosis) found that either a dry leaf extract or an infusion of the leaf reduced sweating by as much as 50%.

ANTI-MICROBIAL - in vitro studies have found that sage oil has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, which would explain its historical use in conditions such as sore throat, inflammations in the mouth (ulcers), and gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). Sage has been shown to be effective against candida albicans, herpes simplex virus II, and influenza virus II.

DIGESTIVE TONIC sage is a valuable carminative used in dyspepsia. From 1842 to 1916, sage was official in the US Pharmacopoeia, where it was recommended for its tonic, astringent, and aromatic properties, in aiding digestive health.

ANTIOXIDANT - Rosmarinic acid found in sage has a number of interesting biological activities such as antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. The antioxidant potential of compounds in sage is equivalent to that of alpha-tocopherol.

CONCENTRATION - studies indicate that sage extracts help to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that helps improve concentration.
