If you’re looking for a little boost in the bedroom, lemon balm might be worth a try!
I love this study that looked into how lemon balm, also known as Melissa officinalis L., can help with sexual dysfunction in women.
It’s pretty awesome!
They had 89 women with reduced sexual desire try either 1g of lemon balm extract or a placebo daily.
The results were super promising!
Those who took the lemon balm experienced significant improvements in arousal, lubrication, orgasm, sexual satisfaction, and even pain reduction compared to the placebo group.
And the cherry on top?
The participants were keen on continuing the treatment.
So, if you’re a perimenopausal woman looking for a little boost in the bedroom, lemon balm might be worth a try! Just remember, it’s always best to chat with your healthcare professional before starting any new supplements.
