    During ancient Egyptian times sage was used to boost fertility and it was widely considered an elixir for overall good health. In modern times sage is still revered, and is considered a potent medicine against the three main causes of disease: bacteria, viruses and fungi.


    It comes as no surprise that wise people were called ‘sages’ when you consider how highly prized sage is for boosting your memory, giving you clarity of thought and improving your cognitive process.


    In medieval Europe it was thought that sage had the power to cure all diseases, and farmers were made to grow sage so there would be enough to benefit all of the townsfolk. Sage was chewed to help whiten the teeth and even today there is a strong correlation between sage and oral health.


    Sage contains volatile oils, flavonoids and phenolic acids, it is these properties that give sage its famous anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities. As a result sage is known to help reduce pain in those suffering from arthritis and gout, or any other inflammatory type pain.
    Chinese sage contains active compounds similar to those found in modern drugs used to treat Alzheimer’s disease and it is also known to have cardiovascular benefits, helping to reduce inflammation.


    Oral health has been maintained throughout the ages with sage, and more recently it has been shown to kill the bacteria Streptococcus mutans, which is known to contribute to dental cavities.


    Sage is a good source of vitamin K, which is an important factor in bone health, wound healing and blood clotting. Other vitamins and minerals are contained within age, including magnesium, zinc, copper and vitamins A, C and E, but these are found in much smaller quantities compared to vitamin K.


    Sage is frequently used for the control of hot flushes and night sweats in women who are going through the menopause. But it has also been known to help stabilise mood swings. It might be worth adding a few cups of sage tea into your daily routine and see if your symptoms reduce over time.

    Sage is used a lot in menopausal drugs that you can buy over the counter, Along with black cohosh it is probably the most widely used herb in menopause. It really improves symptoms of menopause, but it does take a few weeks to really take effect.

    I like the idea of it helping with menopausal symptoms such as mood swings and hot flushes
