Lemon Balm Extract
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) comes from the same family as the mint plant. It is used to improve cognitive function, help with stress and reduce anxiety. It may also help with sleep disorders. When applied topically, it can help cold sores heal faster.
Lemon balm is high in flavonoids, which can have an antioxidant effect. It also contains tannins, which are astringent and contribute to lemon balm’s antiviral effects, and eugenol acetate, which is believed to be one of the phytochemicals responsible for lemon balm’s reported antispasmodic effect. It also contains vitamin C and thiamin.
