The Introduction of Lemon Balm Extract

    Lemon balm is a perennial herb from the mint family. The leaves, which have a mild lemon aroma, are 

used to make medicine. Lemon balm is used alone or as part of various multi-herb combination products.

    Lemon balm is used for digestive problems, including upset stomach, bloating, intestinal gas (flatulence), 

vomiting, and colic; for pain, including menstrual cramps, headache and toothache; and for mental disorders, 

including hysteria and melancholia.

    Many people believe lemon balm has calming effects so they take it for anxiety, sleep problems, and 

restlessness. Lemon balm is also used for Alzheimer's disease, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder 

(ADHD), an autoimmune disease involving the thyroid (Graves' disease), swollen airways, rapid heartbeat 

due to nervousness, high blood pressure, sores, tumors, and insect bites.

health benefits of lemon balm extract:

    Anxiety. Some research shows that taking a specific lemon balm product  reduces symptoms in people with

 anxiety disorders. A product containing lemon balm plus 12 other ingredients has also been shown to reduce 

symptoms of anxiety such as nervousness or edginess.

    Cold sores. Applying a lip balm containing 1% lemon balm extract seems to shorten healing time, prevent 

infection spread, and reduce symptoms of recurring cold sores.

    Colic in breast-fed infants. A clinical trial shows that breast-fed infants with colic who are given a specific 

multi-ingredient product containing fennel, lemon balm, and German chamomile twice daily for a week cry 

for a shorter period of time than other breast-fed infants with colic.

    Dementia. Some research shows that taking lemon balm by mouth daily for 4 months seems to reduce 

agitation and improve symptoms of mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. In one study, applying a lotion 

containing lemon balm oils to the face and hands reduced agitation in people with dementia. However, other 

research found no benefit.

    Upset stomach, when a specific combination of lemon balm and peppermint leaf, German chamomile, 

caraway, licorice, clown's mustard plant, celandine, angelica, and milk thistle is used. This combination seems 

to improve acid reflux, stomach pain, cramping, nausea, and vomiting.

    Insomnia. Taking a lemon balm by itself or along with other ingredients might improve the length and 

quality of sleep in healthy people and in those with insomnia or sleeping disorders.

    Stress. Some research suggests that taking one 600 mg dose of lemon balm increases calmness and 

awareness in adults during a stress test. Other research suggests that larger lemon balm doses reduce anxious 

behavior in children, but not lower doses. Another study suggests that taking a combination product containing

 valerian and lemon balm might lower anxiety when taken at a lower dose, but might increase anxiety when 

taken at a higher dose. Other research found that taking a lemon balm product for 4 weeks lowered agitation 

and edginess in people with anxiety caused by stress.
