SAGE | TÈ TEA

Dylan Demarchi

    

 

 

SALVIA OFFICINALIS

Salvia, from the Latin “ to heal”, has a long history of medicinal use. In ancient times sage was once believed to promote longevity, with Arab physicians of around the 10th Century believing sage extended life to the point of immortality.  Roman healers prescribed sage for snakebites, epilepsy and chest ailments, with Chinese and Ayuredic physicians both using sage to treat insomnia, depression, gastrointestinal distress, eye disorders, menstrual complaints and nipple inflammation in nursing mothers.

A bushy evergreen with aromatic silvery green leaves and deep purple flowers which blossom in spring, Sage is a rich source of beta-carotene, Vitamin C and B-complex, with sage leaves containing tannins, volatile oil, saponins, steroids and bitter principals.

The bitter constituents in Sage leaves help stimulate sluggish stomach activity, aid the digestion of rich foods, and can be used in the treatment of loss of appetite, flatulence, gastritis, bloating and dyspepsia.

The combined astringent, antiseptic and bitter properties in the leaves make sage a valuable remedy for mucosal inflammations, with gargles and mouthwashes used to treat a wide range of conditions affecting the oral mucosa. Fresh sage leaves rubbed regularly will help strengthen gums and maintain oral hygiene.

Sage was once a popular remedy for the relief of night sweats common with tuberculosis, with recent studies supporting the use of sage to relieve excessive perspiration. Sage is commonly used by modern herbalists to soothe and regulate hormonal hot flushes.

Sage tea helps restore circulatory and digestive function in debility and convalescence, and is also useful as a brain and nerve tonic to enhance memory and treat dementia.

                                     CYCLOPIA



Botanical name :Cyclopia spp.

Honeybush is indigenous to South Africa, taking its name from the bright yellow flowers with a distinctive honey scent. The tea is naturally sweet, low in tannins and free from caffeine.

Honeybush has been consumed for centuries both as a refreshing beverage and as a folk remedy for treating coughs and infections of the upper respiratory tract.

Recent scientific analysis supports the traditional use of Honeybush as a health beverage. Substantial amounts of (+)- Pinitol found in Honeybush leaves make it an excellent expectorant useful in the treatment of coughs.

Studies on Pinitol have also demonstrated that it has a blood sugar lowering effect.

 The antioxidant content of Honeybush helps to lower blood lipid levels.

Phytoestrogens such as isoflavones and coumestones are useful in the treatment of menopause and the prevention of related symptoms such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

A natural source of major phenolic compounds in Honeybush tea help to prevent infection and chronic ill health by down regulating the body’s inflammatory response and protecting the immune system from oxidative stress that could lead to cell damage. Phenolic compounds exhibit antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal and antiallergenic properties that help modulate the immune system and strengthen the body’s defenses against infections.

A rich source of essential mineral salts in the tea leaves help to control the body’s chemical balance and maintain an ideal state of physical equilibrium and wellbeing.

These include Sodium and potassium for fluid and acid balance and to aid healthy digestive function, Calcium for strong teeth and bones. Manganese to aid bone development, along with Magnesium and Phosphorus for a healthy nervous and glandular system. The leaves also contain Iron and Copper essential for the transport of oxygen to tissues through the bloodstream. 

Enjoy the health benefits of Honeybush in our nutrient rich Honey Rose tisane.

Serve hot or as a delicious iced tea.
