Sage (Lat. Salvia Officinalis) is a plant from the Lyme family, which is a perennial semi-shrub. It comes from the countries of the Mediterranean Sea, but the cultivation of sage is carried out in many places around the world. Its unique properties have been known for centuries - the most valuable part of the plant are the leaves, which are used to produce essential oil with health-promoting properties. The flowers and stems are used much less frequently. Although it is the medicinal sage that is the most widely used species, in herbal medicine it is also used, for example, for red-root sage or clary sage.

Side effects

Undoubtedly, medical sage has a number of beneficial properties. However, it should be borne in mind that its action is quite strong, so not everyone can use sage without moderation. Side effects such as nausea, vomiting and dementia can occur by drinking large amounts of sage tea. In addition, there are several contraindications to the use of this herb. First of all, people taking antidepressants or other drugs that have a direct effect on the nervous system are not advised. Moreover, the use of sage may cause negative effects in patients with acute gastritis. People taking anticoagulants should not benefit from the benefits of sage. Among the contraindications, we can also find neoplastic diseases. Sage is not recommended for pregnant women as it can even lead to miscarriage.


Although sage is a plant product, its relatively strong action means that not everyone can use it without limits. It is worth remembering the following precautions and information about medical sage:

  • Long-term drinking of large amounts of sage infusions may cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, dementia;
  • Although there are no studies confirming the effects of miscarriage, it is not recommended for use internally by pregnant women;
