Used by doctors in ancient Greece in case of insomnia, valerian helps to reduce fatigue and lethargy during the day. It is known to act on certain chemical messages from the brain and help reduce stress and anxiety.

Lemon balm, known for its soothing properties, has a calming effect and improves the quality of sleep. It is also useful in cases of anxiety and agitation.

When combined, these plants work together to reduce sleep onset latency, minimise the risk of night-time waking and mitigate the harmful effects of stress.

Product:  Valerian 0.8% valerenic acid
Part used: Root
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Valeriana officinalis L.
ACTIVE SUBSTANCE: 0.8% valerenic acid

PROPERTIES:

  • Relieves sleep disorders and stress, thanks to valerenic acid’s inhibition of the neurotransmitter γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), which acts on the central nervous system1.
  • Reduces anxiety, offering a natural alternative to anxiolytic drugs2.
  • When combined with lemon balm, improves sleep onset latency, as well as the duration, concentration and quality of sleep3.
  • Neuroprotective properties, thanks to its action against numerous neurotoxic agents, this application has been tested in case of illnesses such as Parkinson’s4.

OUR EXTRACT:

Valerian has been used in case of insomnia since the ancient Greek era, and its plant, which can grow as high as two metres, is found in humid forests and alongside streams.

Our extract comes from valerian root and is standardised to contain 0.8% valerenic acid, which is the bioactive substance with soothing and sedative properties that improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety, thanks to its action on the neurotransmitter γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA).

COMMON NAME: Lemon balm
Product:  lemon balm 10% rosmarinic acid
Part used: Leaves
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Melissa officinalis L.
ACTIVE SUBSTANCE: 10% rosmarinic acid

PROPERTIES:

  • Antioxidant capacity superior to that of gallic or caffeic acid5.
  • Rosmarinic acid exhibits anxiolytic activity, inhibiting γ-Aminobutyric acid transaminase (GABA-T) and increasing levels of GABA in the brain6.
  • When combined with valerian, reduces restlessness and dyssomnia in children7.
  • Its sedative and analgesic properties have been demonstrated in studies to improve sleep quality8.

 OUR EXTRACT:

Lemon balm is native to central and southern Europe and grows in shady, humid spots in forests.  Its dark green leaves are 3 to 8 centimetres long and give off a strong citrus smell.

Our lemon balm extract is standardised to contain 10% rosmarinic acid, a molecule with capacity to inhibit the neurotransmitter γ-Aminobutyric acid and with sedative, anxiolytic and antioxidant properties. This molecule reaches the brain through the blood bound to serum albumin and to lysozyme, where it acts to decrease acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity.
