Bluenesse benefits cognitive health, mood

New studies conducted on Vital Solutions' Bluenesse Melissa officinalis leaf extract show the proprietary ingredient can benefit cognitive health and mood.

LANGENFELD, Germany—New studies conducted on Vital Solutions’ Bluenesse® Melissa officinalis leaf extract show the proprietary ingredient can benefit cognitive health and mood. (Nutrients. 2014; 6(11), 4805-4821. doi:10.3390/nu6114805)

The studies followed double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover human study designs.

"Consumers are looking for natural support to cope with daily requirements, from high work load to family issues, in a cool-headed, focused and structured way, and without compromising long-term health," said Sybille Buchwald-Werner, managing director at Vital Solutions. "With Bluenesse, we developed a special lemon balm extract. A dosage of only 300 mg showed significant effects to improve alertness, memory and mood." 

These are the first studies with lemon balm administered in a beverage (with similar bioavailability to capsule formulation) and in a drinkable yogurt. Bluenesse is water soluble and can be taken on demand. Effects are measurable within one hour of intake, and they are still perceivable after three hours. 

Bluenesse® is a proprietary Melissa officinalis leaf extract, standardized on muscarinic M1 receptor affinity and on rosmarinic acid 6-percent. It is a sustainable natural ingredient, which is IP-protected and approved to be used in foods and food supplements.
