Lemon balm is a lemon-scented herb native to Europe, North Africa and Central Asia, not only grown in gardens but also for its medicinal purposes. It has been traditionally used to improve cognitive health and mood. In fact, recent research suggests that lemon balm can reduce anxiety, relieve stress (1, 2) and improve mood (3). One explanations is that its ingredients can support the GABA levels in the brain (4). GABA is an amino acid naturally present in every human body, which works as a “brake” in the brain during stress. So, less GABA more stress and the opposite.
