What is Sage Leaf Extract?
Sage is a Mediterranean herb, used in recipes around the world for its earthy flavour. Beyond this, it has also been used in traditional medicine to for mental health and performance.
Brain fog is where we have difficulty in thinking or focusing, and brain fog is the most common symptom of menopause, due to changes in hormone levels and oestrogen receptors in the brain. Both progesterone and oestrogen levels drop during the menopausal transition, causing irritability, mood swings, sleep disturbance, fatigue and mental confusion, all of which can exacerbate symptoms of brain fog.
Studies show sage supports your ability to focus, helping to maintain memory and brain performance. Studies also show that Sage may enhance cognitive activity and contribute to performance in memory and accuracy-based tasks. Additionally, some studies have shown Sage can help keep body temperature cool, helping relieve hot flushes.
