What is Cyracos Lemon Balm Extract?
Lemon Balm Extract from Cyracos, is a supplement that can be found in a range of four different forms:
- Or powder
In this article, however, I will be exclusively talking about the extract.
The key ingredient in this natural nootropic supplement is called; Citrus Limon (lemon) which contains 50% to 70% of the active ingredient called; "Limonene".
Limonene has been proven to have antidepressant effects on humans and helps lift your mood after a bad day at work or home.
That being said, Limonene is usually something that is associated with Cannabis since it's a constituent of essential oils extracted from Cannabis Sativa plant (it's what gives it that citrus-like smell).
If you are feeling down and stressed out after a long day, Lemon Balm Extract may help you feel better within minutes!
There are no side effects associated with using Lemon Balm Extract as it is extremely well tolerated by most people.
Lemon Balm is extracted from the leaves of the species; Melissa officinalis and is a traditional and natural ingredient used for decades.
What are the benefits?
Having your mind worked up or stressed out all day? Having someone close to you pass away? These things can really take their toll on your mental health and well-being!
A calming herb like Lemon Balm can help give you a good night's sleep, and restore happiness within yourself.
If feeling down and out makes it hard to function at home or in the office, then why not use this natural nootropic as an aid?
Lemon Balm is quite useful for those people who suffer from mild depression or anxiety disorders as this herb is well tolerated by most people, with no side effects (which is quite rare).
So to summarize the benefits of Cyracos Lemon Balm Extract here's what we know;
- It can be used to relieve stress
- It can calm the mind and ease tension
It also has antispasmodic properties for treating problems like irritable bowel syndrome.
Studies have found that using lemon balm acted upon the amygdala which is the "fear center" of the brain.
Lemon balm has been shown to lower cortisol and ACTH levels as well which is why it is so effective in lowering anxiety.
What are the side effects ?
As I mentioned above, Lemon Balm has been shown to have no adverse side effects.
In fact, it is extremely well tolerated by both the young and the old.
You won't have to worry about feeling groggy or low energy being induced by this natural nootropic.
In fact, Lemon Balm is also effective in lowering your blood pressure and it's even been known to help cure colds faster!
If you're looking for a safe and natural aid in helping you de-stress, then I highly recommend you try out this Nootropic! I personally use this product myself daily stacked with L-theanine which helps me relax after a long day at work.
What is the most effective dose?
For standard de-stressing purposes, most people use a dosage amount of 300mg – 400mg.
If you want to improve your sleep quality, then I would recommend using the same amount about 1 hour before you go to sleep.
If you want to see how Lemon Balm Extract might help you, here is a video I found on YouTube which shows you the effects that it has on some users.
10 Benefits Of Lemon Balm
Can you stack Cyracos Lemon Balm Extract with other Nootropics?
The short answer is; Yes you can!
However I would recommend this only if you are on the same, or similar, dose with your current nootropic stack.
If it is a higher dose, then I would wait at least half an hour after ingesting your Lemon Balm before consuming other nootropics.
I highly recommend NOT taking multiple Nootropics at once when you're first starting out so as to prevent any possible side effects!
That being said, Lemon Balm do stack well with several different nootropics. So let's take a quick look on which ones have the best synergy.
If you're looking for an alternative to Piracetam or a more natural supplement to a Cholinergic, then I highly recommend stacking it with one of the following nootropics;
- Or Noopept
If you want to reap the most benefit out of this combination, I would recommend using it in conjunction with a Cholinergic source such as Citicoline or Alpha GPC.
Lastly, it's worth noting that there is no research or scientific literature that suggests that there are any synergistic or additive effects when stacking this herb with other Nootropics (therefore do not add any additional dosage of Lemon Balm when using other Nootropics - it might be a waste of your money).
Overall, I would rate this Nootropic a 4 (out of 5) virtual stars.
Cyracos Lemon Balm Extract is one of the most effective nootropics for de-stressing so I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an effective but natural way to relax after a long day, without consuming any 'hard' Nootropics like Phenibut.
Stacked with L-theanine it gives Phenibut-like effects (but without any withdrawals).
