Sage Leaf (Salvia Officinalis)......................... 75 mg
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the European Union recently approved 300 mg of sage as a treatment for excessive perspiration associated with menopause and in the United Kingdom, medical herbalists treat menopausal women suffering hot flashes and night sweats with sage.

In studies, 300 mg of sage does not cause elevated heart rate or blood pressure.

Hesperidin, a potent flavonoid, improves the vascular system and our capillaries thereby improving cardiovascular health and reduction of bruising. It has also been shown to reduce hot flashes and night time leg cramps.
