  • Improved Sleep: Due to its sedative effects, lemon balm can aid in improving sleep quality. It is particularly helpful for those who suffer from insomnia or restless sleep.
  • Digestive Health: Lemon balm can help relieve indigestion and other gastrointestinal issues such as bloating and gas. It has antispasmodic effects on the digestive tract, which helps to soothe the stomach.
