1. This report states sage is the most effective of meditrainian herbs in fighting cancer tested against thyme, rosemary, spearmint, and peppermint extracts. "Department of Horticulture, University of Georgia, Athens, GA ...The study suggests that these five herbs may have potential health benefits to suppress colon cancer." PMID: 21452174

2. "Extracts from herb species (thyme, rosemary, sage, spearmint and peppermint) can significantly inhibit the growth of human colon cancer cells. Mixtures of herb extracts can have combination effects on cancer cell growth. The study suggests that these five herbs may have potential health benefits to suppress colon cancer." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21452174

3. "...Alzheimer's disease (AD)...These data show the neuroprotective effect of sage against Abeta-induced toxicity, which could validate the traditional use of this spice in the treatment of AD. Rosmarinic acid could contribute, at least in part, for sage-induced neuroprotective effect." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16495207

4. "...These results demonstrate that S. lavandulaefolia, its essential oil and some chemical constituents have properties relevant to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and provide further data supporting the value of carrying out clinical studies in patients with Alzheimer's disease using this plant species." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11697542

5. "...In summary, the positive effects of specific plant extracts on insulin activity suggest a possible role of these plants in improving glucose and insulin metabolism." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10725162

6. "Identification and quantification of a major anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory phenolic compound found in basil, lemon thyme, mint, oregano, rosemary, sage, and thyme." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21506887
