MINT - Health Benefits
Indigestion and gas: Mint is a calming and soothing herb that has been used for thousands of years to aid with upset stomach or indigestion. Mint is thought to increase bile secretion and encourage bile flow, which helps to speed and ease digestion and which may also support healthy cholesterol levels. Mint, also known as mentha, is actually a genus or group of around 15-20 plant species including peppermint and spearmint.

Sage - What is Sage & its Health Benefits?
This perennial woody herb is unbelievable when it comes to its impact on human health. Scientifically known as Salvia officinalis, sage is closely related to rosemary, and they are often considered “sister herbs”. In fact, many of sage’s health benefits are derived from the rosmarinic acid, the organic compound found in rosemary that makes it powerful. It does have its differences and is actually an evergreen shrub with woody stems and blue/purple flowers that are found in the Mediterranean region.
