... Or in English, Sage - the answer to Sunday's challenge. Well done Bernard, Edith and Jane.
The leaf can be used for digestive problems, including loss of appetite, flatulence, gastritis, diarrhea, bloating, and heartburn. It can also be used for reducing overproduction of perspiration and saliva; and is said to help with depression, memory loss, and Alzheimer's disease.
