Lemon Balm Full Spectrum has been formulated by Planetary Herbals to promote natural calm and rest, and in this way, help you to beat insomnia.
Unlike many other insomnia remedies, this one contains only one active ingredient – an extract of the ancient lemon balm herb. Lemon balm leaves are popular in cooking to give a lemony taste to baked goodies, desserts and other dishes.
But it’s its medicinal properties that concern us here.
For centuries, people have brewed lemon balm leaves into a soothing tea to be drunk when stressed or upset. It was even used for this purpose by the ancient Greeks and Romans. And it seems they might have had a point. Research into the medicinal properties of lemon balm appears to indicate that it does indeed soothe the central nervous system. However, other researchers have not produced the same results and although it is usually well tolerated, there remains some doubt as to whether lemon balm actually has any reliable beneficial effects and as a sleep aid.

Planetary Herbals Lemon Balm Full Spectrum Review – Conclusion
The good thing about this particular insomnia remedy is that it is unlikely to cause you any harm. It contains only one active ingredient – an extract from the lemon balm plant, which is generally well tolerated by most people.
It is not guaranteed by the manufacturer, which is something of a concern, although our inability to find any information about a manufacturer’s guarantee could be attributed to the fact that Planetary Herbals does not sell its product directly to consumers. You would therefore probably have to ascertain the return policy of the retailer from whom you purchase the product.
While some people believe that lemon balm is a great sleep aid – and it has certainly been used almost constantly for hundreds, if not thousands of years to soothe and calm nerves – there is no hard evidence that suggests these properties are anything more an anecdotal.
So while Planetary Herbals Lemon Balm Full Spectrum may help you to relax and calm down sufficiently so that you do fall asleep, there are probably other insomnia remedies available that are likely to be more effective if your insomnia stems from causes other than feeling stressed.
