What is Lemon Balm Extract?
Lemon balm extract is a concentrated form of the plant melissa officinalis. It is found all around the world and offers a lot of potential benefits.
Lemon balm was first used as a tonic in Greece. Later, during the middle ages, it was used in Europe as a medicine to help heal flesh wounds and treat headaches and fevers.
A more traditional use of lemon balm is to make a tea that has a calming effect.
The benefits of lemon balm come from its interactions with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that helps to control excited neurons in the nervous system, and it also help reducing stress.
GABA allows for easy communication between the nerves and brain in mentally or physically stressful conditions.
Lemon Balm Extract helps to regulate a compound that blocks GABA known as GABA transaminase.
Lemon Balm Extract has other uses in addition to reducing stress.
Research shows that it also promotes nerve and muscle relaxation.
