Herb Description: Sage grows in the wild in the Mediterranean regions and Asia Minor. Its Latin name comes from the word "salvere," which means to save or heal; this herb traditionally symbolizes good health and long life. Roman cultures, considering sage a sacred plant, followed a special ceremony for its harvest. Many cultures used sage for meat preservation, a practice confirmed by research that discovered sage's high antioxidant content. In 17th century China, sage was so valued in making infusions that traders would accept one bale of sage in trade for three bales of their tea leaves. Of all the culinary herbs, sage is perhaps the one with the widest variety of medicinal uses. Recent scientific research found that sage is an outstanding memory enhancer, possibly even helping to prevent Alzheimer's disease. Sage also relieves tension and inflammation, fights infection and viruses, purifies the system and benefits diabetics.
