Sipping tea made from the leaves of the sage plant shows promise as a natural means of keeping your cholesterol in check. Preliminary research suggests that sage tea may help reduce your levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol, possibly due to its high levels of antioxidants.
Other studies show that drinking sage tea may also help decrease the hot flashes associated with menopause. In addition, sage tea is a popular natural remedy among breastfeeding mothers seeking to reduce their milk supply or attempting to wean their babies. But while sage is commonly touted as a natural weight-loss aid, there's no evidence yet to support the claim that sage tea can help you slim down.
