It’s only recently that a mechanism of action has been identified.

Several different compounds that we found in Cyracos® have shown to have specific properties. An in vitro test showed that rosmarinic acid lowered the activity of an enzyme and increased the content of GABA in the central nervous system, which has been linked to positive effects on mood.

Other compounds present in Cyracos® such as ursolic acid and oleanolic acid have the same effect. This is why it is important to keep all active constituents in Cyracos® extract.

Therefore it can be concluded that there is a synergy between the different fractions of lemon balm extract, showing the importance of preserving the totum of the plant during the manufacturing process of the extract.

It is from this perspective that Naturex developed the manufacturing process of Cyracos®. To validate the anti-stress activity of Cyracos®, Naturex performed a clinical study on its own extract. To find out more on the effectiveness of Cyracos®, click here.
