Bluenesse® - Science & Application

Bluenesse, the proprietary Melissa officinalis extract, is standardized on more than 6% rosmarinic acid and muscarinic M1 receptor affinity.

Bluenesse uniquely balances the concentration of neurotransmitter, such as GABA or Dopamine, which are important for a healthy brain function.

In vitro and human studies confirmed that Bluenesse supports cognitive performance, improving alertness, concentration, mental focus, and working memory. In addition it provides a calm and positive mood and improves the ability to cope with occasional stress.

Bluenesse is a high quality, sustainable, IP protected, natural ingredient, approved to be used in food supplements, foods and beverages. It is a water soluble fine beige - brown powder with a recommended daily dosage of 300 mg.

Bluenesse® - Origin & Production

Bluenesse is obtained by water extraction out of a special breeding line of Melissa officinalis (L.) leaves, an annual edible herb native to Europe, belonging to the family Lamiaceae. Each batch undergoes bioassay-guided efficacy testing to confirm cognitive effects - this is a new dimension of quality control, which differentiates Bluenesse from all other generic lemon balm extracts.

Vital Solutions' research and extensive know-how in natural products enabled them to identify a special lemon balm breeding line supporting cognitive effects.

Bluenesse’s modern, state of the art production facility and GMP compliant production conditions ensure reproducible quality of the products. Bluenesse complies with highest quality and traceability standards, completed by phytochemical characterization and stability data.
