Sage is one of those herbs that is often found in the kitchen but not often found in the teapot. Possibly the best-known use of Sage tea is as a menopause regulator, specifically for hot flushes. According to a 2011 study in the Advances in Therapy Journal, hot flushes were possibly reduced by up to 64%. As well as reducing mood swings and overactive bladders. Sage tea may help detoxify the body by flushing out toxins as it’s a natural diuretic. It is also said to have a natural calming effect as it is a relaxant. It could well help for upset stomachs, abdominal pain and constipation. High in antioxidants helping to protect against free radicals and improving the immune system. Like most herbal teas it is free of caffeine. Sipping Sage tea may well help your overall health by keeping you hydrated and upping your antioxidant intake, however, there isn’t enough research on the benefits of Sage tea to use it as a treatment for any specific condition. I really enjoyed it and the genuinely felt healthier afterwards.
It goes without saying that if you're pregnant or breast-feeding (or are under the doc for anything) caution should be exercised with herbal decoctions.
