Benefits of lemon balm
The medicinal use of lemon balm dates back more than 2,000 years, back to the time of the Greek and Roman empires.
It is considered an excellent digestive aid. Because of its richness in flavonoids, it has excellent antioxidant properties. It also has astringent and antiviral properties.
Senior dog support
As a canine nutritionist, I’m rather fond of lemon balm. That’s why I’ve included it in my senior dog multivitamin supplement, Senior Dog Support.
Along with alfalfa, ashwagandha, calendula, gingko biloba, hawthorn berries and flowers, lemon balm, oatstraw and finecut rosehips, it’s a 100% natural daily supplement for senior dogs.
