Cool Down Those Hot Flashes With Sage

Sage has been used in holistic healing to help menopausal women with hot flashes for centuries. A new study out of Switzerland has unveiled the mechanism behind sage's hot flash reduction properties.

The study was conducted by researchers with Bioforce AG, and the findings were published in the June 2011 issue of Advances in Therapy.

The study group included 71 women with a mean age of 54 who had been experiencing menopausal symptoms for at least 12 months. Each woman experienced at least five hot flashes every day at the start of the study.

Over the course of 8 weeks, the women were given 280 mg of sage spissum extract and were instructed to keep diaries recording the number of hot flashes they experienced each day. At the end of the 8 weeks, mild hot flashes had been reduced by a mean amount of 46%, moderate by 62%, severe by 79%, and very severe by 100%.

The researchers also used the Menopause Rating Scale (MRS) to assess the women at the beginning of the study and again at the end. The MRS is a quality of life scale used to evaluate menopausal women. On average, the participants rated their quality of life as having improved 43% during the study period.

Sage can also be used as an antiseptic or an astringent. It can be consumed in a tea form or applied topically.
