Lemon Balm is another ingredient that Akua Life upgraded to a 10:1 extract from what is normally sold. Lemon Balm is known for many things, mostly for its anti-anxiety and calming effects. Lemon balm reduces irritability and depression. And like many other nootropics, it improves focus, memory, and overall cognition.
Lemon balm has a long history as a treatment for stress, anxiety, thyroid issues, indigestion, infections, viruses, and inflammation.
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) is native to the Mediterranean region. And has been cultivated for well over 2,000 years. Melissa officinalis (Melissa is derived from the Greek for ‘honey bee’) was observed by Pliny the Elder as great for attracting bees.
Lemon balm’s appeal continued to grow. It was used as a tea to combat mental confusion, and as an elixir to extend lifespan. In the 17thcentury, French Carmelite nuns dispensed Carmelite Water. This lemon-balm infused ‘miracle water’ was said to improve memory, vision, and reduce fever, melancholy, and congestion.
Melissa tea is used in France today to treat fatigue and headaches. Naturopaths recommend lemon balm to treat cold and flu, lower blood pressure, for insomnia and indigestion.
