Melissa Dream is a relaxation and sleep aid which contains chamomile and lemon balm in combination with B vitamins, magnesium and L-Theanine.
It is a gentle formulation, but in Organico we have found it to be very effective especially for young people who are concerned about exams and are not able to relax. Melissa Dream is not addictive and will not cause drowsiness.
As far back as the 12th century lemon balm was described as a powerful relaxant by Hildegard of Bingen. Lemon balm works synergistically with Chamomile to promote sound sleep and reduces disturbance.
Chamomile is a traditional remedy for nervous conditions. Taken during the day it helps to calm and reduce stress levels, whilst taken at night it helps to induce calm and sleep. It is well known for its use in teas.
L-theanine is an amino acid (part of proteins) that creates a sense of calm and relaxation within 30-40 minutes of taking. L-theanine stimulates creation of alpha waves in the brain, causing relaxation and more alertness.
B-Vitamins are well known for their calming properties. They are a group of vitamins that affect neurotransmitters in the brain to help relieve stress, anxiety and depression. Lack of B-vitamins contribute to mood and sleep disturbances. As B-Vitamins can be taken in food and as supplements, but also be made in the gut, it is important to maintain a healthy intestinal flora to ensure proper B-Vitamin supply.
