Actions and pharmacology

Sage leaf contains tannins, bitter principles (diterpenes), steroids, flavonoids and a volatile oil rich in terpenes (thujone, camphor, etc.). It is recognized for its carminative (relieving flatulence), antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, and anti-microbial properties. The antispasmodic and astringent effects may explain its usefulness against excessive perspiration and hot flushes.(2) In a recent in vitro study, sage has shown an affinity to benzodiazepine brain receptors which could explain its calming effect.(3) In another in vitro study, sage demonstrated antioxidant properties.(4)

The German E Commission recognizes the use of sage (Salvia Officinalis) for dyspeptic symptoms (poor digestion without apparent stomach lesion) and excessive perspiration.
