Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis) | 10%+ Rosmarinic Acid – Powder, 100g
Lemon Balm is a herbaceous plant in the Mint family, it has been used in traditional medicine as a soothing elixir, tonic or tea for centuries. The presence of the naturally occurring compound Rosmarinic Acid is thought to give this extract its potential medicinal properties.
The benefits found in lemon balm are often attributed to the way Rosmarinic Acid, a chemical compound that occurs naturally in the plant, interacts with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA is a neurotransmitter responsible for regulating neurons in the nervous system, it’s also considered the brain’s main response to stress. GABA helps communication between the nerves and the brain under mentally or physically stressful conditions. Rather than using a GABA supplement, lemon balm extract regulates a compound that blocks GABA known as GABA transaminase.
