sweat reduction with sage
Although it is not scientifically proven objectively, the antiperspirant effect of sage has been comprehensible for years due to many empirical values, reports and applications. Experimental studies have shown that the extracts of sage in the form of teas or capsules can inhibit glandular activity and thus reduce water excretion through the skin.
Sage has antihidrotic and astringent effects. Presumably, the tannins of sage are responsible for this. It is not without reason that the pharmaceutical industry has also taken advantage of the active ingredients of sage and launched sweat-reducing agents (antihidrotics) on the market.
Sweatosan® N und Salvysat ® Bürger
The best-known ointment medications for increased perspiration include Sweatosan® N and Salvysat ® Bürger in coated tablet form. These are round or oval tablets that are coated with sugar so that the coated tablets do not disintegrate until they reach the stomach or intestines and the active ingredient in sage can be released in a targeted manner.
Pure sage or sage-based medicines help with hot flashes and mild to moderate forms of excessive sweating. Particularly in the life phases of puberty, which are characterized by hormonal changes, as well as in the menopause of women (menopausal hyperhidrosis), sage can be used helpfully and as an adjunct when typical uncontrolled outbreaks of sweating occur.
The effectiveness of sage is based on two significant variables in the sweating cycle, the temperature center in the brain and the sweat glands themselves. This can effectively reduce sweat production. Sage substances also have estrogen-like effects that can positively balance the female hormone balance, especially during menopause.
