Sage is a perennial woody herb, that you will find in most herb gardens. It is used to add flavour to savoury dishes. After doing research into I am going to be using it for a lot more than that. I hope after reading this blog you will too.
The use of sage in medicine has been well documented and dates back thousands of year when it was initially used to treat things like snakebites. Nowadays with modern research sage has been shown to help with cognitive function by increasing memory retention and concentration in healthy adults. Even helping improve memory for people with mild to moderate Alzheimer's.
It can be chewed, taken in capsule form or brewed as a tea. To make sage tea, get a handful of fresh or dried sage. Poor over boiling water and let steep for 5minutes, then strain out the leaves. Add some honey to sweeten as the tea can be quite bitter.
