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 destruction of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase within the nervous system).
