This unassuming herb, most associated with holiday stuffing, has much to recommend it. Sage has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. It is used for digestive problems, for reducing overproduction of perspiration and saliva, for depression and memory loss. Women use sage for painful menstrual periods, to stem milk flow and to reduce hot flashes during menopause. Steam from the plant is also used to relieve asthma.
