Solgar Sage Leaf Extract - Menopause Hot Flushes And Night Sweats

Sage Leaf Extract has a long history of use throughout Europe as a culinary herb and is one of Solgar's premium quality food supplements.

Sage (Salvia officinalis) has been used for hundreds of years both as a culinary and therapeutic herb. Sage is stated to possess carminative, antispasmodic, antiseptic, astringent and antihydrotic properties. The key constituents are organic acids, polyphenols, terpenes and volatile oils. Within the volatile oils, rosmarinic acid and carvacrol would appear to exert antioxidant properties. Several other compounds are reported to have anti-inflammatory or anticholinesterase properties (effectively preventing the destrution of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase within the nervous system.

Interest is also growing relating to the role of sage in brain health with studies showing improvements in cognitive function in certain population groups with the use of sage.

A 2002 study on hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) showed that sage is capable of reducing such symptoms. Interestingly, sage has traditionally been used extensively for the relief of sweating associated with menopause.
