Sage has been used for thousands of years by herbalists to treat a wide range of conditions. It is part of the phytoestrogen family (meaning it is a plant based form of oestrogen) and is therefore particularly popular with women looking to manage symptoms of the menopause. In fact it has been traditionally used to do as such, the estrogen like properties within sage are understood to bind to certain receptors in the brain to help improve memory and treat hot flushes and excessive sweating.
Sage is also commonly known as an antioxidant, it contains over 160 polyphenols, plant based compounds that act as antioxidants in the body. These compounds neutralise the damaging effects of free radicals within the body that lead to chronic disease.
Whilst being a popular feature in European diets, the culinary version of this wonderful herb cannot compete with the potency of a standardised extract. Just Vitamins' Sage capsules contain the equivalent of 3000mg of Sage leaves in a concentrated vegetarian capsule. We also guarantee 12.5mg Rosmarinic Acid, the active ingredient within Sage.
