How to use sage?
You are probably wondering how to consume sage? It is very simple. Sage can be taken as an infusion, by pouring 1 teaspoon of dry leaves into boiling water, or as a capsule, powder or extract to be added to a glass of water.
Of course, if you wish to consume sage, it is important to discuss it with your doctor. In some cases, depending on the pathology, this plant may be contraindicated. You can also ask a naturopath for advice, who will guide you in your approach.
