Vital Solutions announces the publication of two human studies using their exclusive food ingredient, Bluenesse®, a proprietary Melissa officinalis leaf extract, standardized on muscarinic M1 receptor affinity and on rosmarinic acid 6%.
Both studies, following a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover design human studies design, confirmed beneficial cognitive and mood effects of Bluenesse.
"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 Dr. 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 has a pleasant taste and is water soluble. It can be taken on demand. Effects are already measurable within one hour of intake and are still perceivable after three hours.
Bluenesse is a product of Vital Solutions. Bluenesse is a high quality, sustainable natural ingredient, which is IP protected and approved to be used in foods and food supplements.
