Sage is hailed as a mild phyto-oestrogen which means that whilst not chemically related, it does have some similarities to oestrogen. So whilst the herb cannot elicit a full oestrogen-like effect on the body in the sense that it cannot alter the level of oestrogen in the blood, it is able to bind to oestrogen receptors and this probably accounts for its ability to alleviate adverse menopausal symptoms e.g. hot flushes.
