Lamberts Sage 2500mg
An increasingly popular herb with a long history of use.
- Recently sage has become a popular ingredient in supplements for women going through the menopause.
- Each of these Lamberts® Sage tablets provides the equivalent of 2.5g of dried herb.
- We insist on a high grade sage extract that has a guaranteed level of 2.5% rosmarinic acid (the 'active' compound in sage).
- Carefully manufactured to have very low, insignificant levels of thujone - a naturally occurring, unpleasant compound.
Usage & Administration
1 tablet daily.
Sage has traditionally been associated with longevity, with a reputation for restoring memory in the elderly and practitioners have used sage for many years for the treatment of hot flushes, a use supported by some studies.
Sage is considered to have mild phyto-oestrogen activity which means that whilst not chemically related, it does have some similarities to oestrogen. So whilst the herb cannot elicit a full oestrogen-like effect on the body it is able to bind to oestrogen receptors and this probably accounts for its use for women going through the menopause.
The sage that Lamberts® uses in this product is a standardised extract which ensures purity and potency of the material. This is important with sage as the active compounds such as rosmarinic acid need to be present at a guaranteed level, whilst undesirable compounds such as thujone must be almost entirely excluded. Our high-grade sage extract has a guaranteed level of 2.5% rosmarinic acid and is probably the only sage extract available in the UK that has closely controlled, very low levels of thujone.
