A NATURAL AID
Sage has been used for centuries as a natural remedy. Our product contains a high-quality sage leaf extract from controlled organic cultivation that was carefully processed to preserve its valuable bioactive ingredients. Our supplement is therefore non-GMO and free from pesticides.
We use an extract from Europe and not a simple powder to also ensure a high concentration of important bioactive components found in the leaves. The organic sage extract is standardised to 1% rosmarinic acid, which is one of the most relevant phytocompounds of the herb. Of course, our product doesn't contain any artificial additives like microcrystalline cellulose or gelatine, keeping our product natural and suitable for vegans! In addition, we have our product tested for heavy metals, aluminum, pesticides and bacterial contamination.
