Lemon Balm Extract (also known as Melissa officinalis) is a perennial herb in the mint family that promotes relaxation and immune support. It is recognized for its role in heart health and slowing the causes or onset of degenerative diseases. It has also been recognized scientifically as a gentle, nontoxic aid for anxiety and sleeplessness. It prevents the breakdown of deoxyribose, the main component of DNA to assist with aging and degeneration of the nervous system which can impair quality of sleep.
Lemon Balm protects against advanced glycation end products (AGEs), toxins leftover from the breakdown of foods and chemicals the body comes into contact with. AGEs are associated with signs of aging, neurodegeneration, and can worsen conditions such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, cancer, and kidney issues. It can also keep iron in its inactive stored state Fe(2+) to prevent toxicity in the brain.In menopausal women, who often report sleep disruptions due to hormone fluctuations, it has shown to help relieve symptoms for a good night’s sleep.
