Organic Sage is an aromatic evergreen herb of the mint family. Sage is native to the Mediterranean region and is used fresh or dried as a flavoring in various dishes. It has a long history of medicinal and culinary use. Interestingly, in medieval Europe, people believed that sage strengthened memory and promoted wisdom. Besides its positive effect on cognitive function, organic sage helps to treat digestive problems, including loss of appetite and heartburn. However, it is better to not use a lot of sage during pregnancy because of the possibility of consuming thujone, a chemical found in some sage. It can bring on a woman’s menstrual period potentially resulting in a miscarriage.
