The Healing Properties of Sage

Sage is a culinary herb that has long been known to have positive medicinal effects on the human body. Sage has anti-microbial properties that can cleanse the body and even protect against high blood sugar and other ailments that can lead to diabetes. Studies are being conducted on sage for its potential ability to prevent against Alzheimer’s disease as well.

 

 

The prominent chemicals in sage are volatile oils, flavonoids, and rosmarinic acid. These ingredients are antioxidants that have beneficial effects on humans. These three chemicals are known to be antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory agents.

 

In one case study, after taking sage extracts subjects said they were more alert, while at the same time calm and contented. These benefits were said to last for several hours after the initial intake of the sage extract.

Others use sage as a cleansing agent. Lighting sage on fire can produce a potent smelling smoke that can kill germs in small spaces. This leaves the room with a refreshing smell that boosts work productivity in the office and is said to create a stress-free environment because of its aromatherapeutic effects.
