Red Sage



Red sage (Salvia miltiorrhiza), also known as dan shen, has been used for centuries in Chinese herbal medicine to support cardiovascular health, calm the nervous system, and clear inflammation.

Red sage is a primary herb for heart disease, heart attack and stroke prevention and recovery, and cholesterol and blood pressure regulation. 

Dan shen promotes blood circulation and is anti-inflammatory for the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels.  This makes it an important herb for the treatment of Babesia and Bartonella infections (which inflames and congests the capillary beds).

Researchers have identified over 200 plant compounds that are anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and health promoting.  

Traditionally red sage is also used to support the mind and spirit, helping to address emotional distress and irritability.
