Lemon balm, also known as Melissa officinalis, is an essential herb for calming the nerves—in particular, those involved with digestion. Nerves play a role in much of the digestive distress we experience in this day and age. If someone’s stomach or intestines are irritated for no identifiable reason, it’s usually due to sensitive nerves.
Lemon balm has soothing properties that make it a gift from God and Mother Nature to deal with our frazzling world. It has bioactive phytochemicals and alkaloids that calm the nerve receptors at the digestive tract so that the nerves become less sensitized and inflammation reduces. This makes lemon balm a valuable herb for stress assistance.
