What is Lemon Balm Extract?
Native to Europe, West Asia, and North Africa, lemon balm extract is a member of the mint family. Lemon balm is grown worldwide though, and is often used to improve mood and cognitive function as well as many other things. Often taken as a pill or mixed into a drink or food, lemon balm is commonly used for medicinal purposes. Its extract acts as a sedative, having a calming effect on the mind.  Lemon balm has numerous other health benefits though, and is an important ingredient within our Tru Rescue drink.
What are the Health Benefits of Lemon Balm Extract?
If you have ever experienced a crippling hangover, one of the side effects includes a faster heartbeat which is closely tied to anxiety.  Lemon balm extract helps calm your mind and improve your mood even during the worst of hangovers.  In addition, lemon balm can help increase your alertness to fight that drowsy feeling you get while hungover, allowing you to focus at the start of a long day ahead of you. In addition, lemon balm can help you get a restful night of sleep after a long night of drinking, acting as a combatant to insomnia and other sleep disorders.  Alcohol often has disruptive sleep impacts especially in the second half of your sleep. Lemon balm can help you relax during your sleep cycles, and keep you asleep, allowing you to feel refreshed the following morning.
