Solaray Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis) 400 mg.
Solaray Lemon Balm helps relieve nervousness and insomnia. Solaray Lemon Balm is used for nervous agitation, sleeping problems and functional gastrointestinal complaints. The lemon balm plant originated in southern Europe and is now found throughout the world. The lemony smell and pretty white flowers of the plant have led to its widespread cultivation in gardens. The leaves, stems, and flowers of lemon balm are used medicinally.
Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies)
Charlemagne once ordered lemon balm planted in every monastery garden because of its beauty. It has been used traditionally by herbalists to treat gas, sleeping difficulties, and heart problems. In addition, topical applications to the temples were sometimes used by herbalists for insomnia or nerve pain.
The terpenes, part of the pleasant smelling volatile oil from lemon balm, are thought to produce this herb’s relaxing and gas-relieving (carminative) effects. Flavonoids, phenolic acids, and other compounds appear to be responsible for lemon balm’s anti-herpes and thyroid-regulating actions. Test tube studies have found that lemon balm blocks attachment of antibodies to the thyroid cells that cause Grave’s disease (hyperthyroidism). The brain’s signal to the thyroid (thyroid-stimulating hormone or TSH) is also blocked from further stimulating the excessively active thyroid gland in this disease. However, clinical trials proving lemon balm’s effectiveness in treating Grave’s disease are lacking.
One small preliminary trial studying sleep quality compared the effect of a combination product containing an extract of lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) and an extract of valerian root with that of the sleeping drug triazolam (Halcion). The effectiveness of the herbal combination was similar to that of Halcion, as determined by the ability to fall asleep and the quality of sleep. Another trial also found that the same combination of valerian and lemon balm, taken over a two-week period, is effective in improving quality of sleep. According to double-blind research, topical use of a concentrated lemon balm extract speeds healing time of herpes simplex virus sores (cold sores) on the mouth.

Solaray Means Quality
Every Solaray™ product is subjected to rigorous testing and screening protocols. The process may vary by ingredient, but typically includes organoleptic (taste, touch, smell) testing to compare it to previous batches, and lab assays for microbial, identity, purity and potency validation. Only when an ingredient has passed all of the required assays is it released to manufacturing. Solaray adheres to all current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) and an independent auditing firm audits Solaray's facilities, laboratory and manufacturing protocols for compliance with the latest regulations.
The Green Screened logo represents their commitment at Solaray to providing herbs of the utmost quality. The Solaray brand employs quality control standards in all areas of product development - from ensuring identification and authenticity by laboratory analysis to screening for microbes, herbicides and pesticides to heavy metal testing. Solaray rejects herbs they suspect are irradiated. Only after Solaray's laboratory analysis program confirms that the herbs meet Solaray's strict standards do they give the product their Green Screened approval.
