Health Benefits of Sage Tea Recipe
Sage is traditionally associated with improving memory. Research has shown that people who take sage oil in capsule form before memory tests perform better than those who take a placebo. The purple variety is best—uses it to flavor roasts and sauces or make a cup of surprisingly drinkable tea. This herb is a mild plant estrogen, recommended by herbalists to counter menopausal hot flashes and night sweats.
