Lemello was formulated to support calmness, relaxation and restful sleep.*
At lower doses, it can support a peaceful state of mind, which can be conducive to feeling settled and sociable.*
At higher doses, it can promote restful sleep, which can be instrumental to feeling fresh and revived the following day.*
A number of studies suggest that the ingredients in Lemello may be beneficial for maintaining composure under stress, socializing at ease or relaxing after a long day.* We recommend taking one capsule at a time for daytime use.*
When taken at night, it can be beneficial for supporting restful, rejuvenating sleep.* For promoting sleep, we recommend taking two capsules, an hour before bed.*
Did we mention that Lemello is all-natural? All of our products are manufactured in the EU and our plant is organic certified. The formula consists of a natural blend of lemon balm, mulungu, magnolia bark, oleamide and valerian root.
We use highly concentrated extracts, ranging from 10:1 to 25:1, which is why each yellow capsule packs such a mellow punch.
Within one single capsule alone, the quantities we squeeze in are staggering. The amount of lemon balm is equivalent to 750mg of standard dried lemon balm. The mulungu is equivalent to 2,000mg of standard bark and the magnolia is equivalent to almost 4,400mg of standard bark (containing 87.5mg of honokiol). Each capsule also contains a relatively high 75mg dose of oleamide.
It could perhaps be said that many other supplement companies rarely focus on the actual quantities they use. Their Supplement Facts panels frequently quote the standard dose in terms of 2+ capsules. Some companies even use audacious serving sizes as high as 8 capsule to hide how little ingredients their underwhelming supplements actually contain.
At Zenstra, we quotes doses per one single capsule. We make it our mission to be the best. Our definition of the best means packing as many high quality ingredients as possible into each capsule, so you get extraordinary value for money.

When life seems overwhelming, keep calm, sleep well, feel mellow🍋 *
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a perennial herb with a zesty, lemon aroma, which is said to have long been used to support calmness, as well as sleep.* Some studies suggest that rosmarinic acid in lemon balm may support the inhibition GABA-transaminase (GABA-T), an enzyme thought to degrade GABA.* GABA is said to be the main inhibitory neurotransmitter which is thought to decrease excitability in the nervous system.* Lemello contains a concentrated 10:1 lemon balm extract, meaning 1g of our extract was obtained from 10g of dried leaves.
Oleamide is a natural fatty acid, said to be produced naturally in our brains from oleic acid (found in olive oil). It is also said to be found within the fruits of Ziziphus jujuba, known as jujube or Chinese date. Jujubae fructus is said to have been consumed in China for over 3,000 years. Oleamide's natural function is thought to be associated with bringing about sleep.* Studies have reportedly shown that it may accumulate in the central nervous system prior to sleeping.*
Magnolia bark (magnolia officinalis) is said to have been used to support sleep and relaxation for thousands of years in Asia.* Magnolia bark extract may contain several bioactive compounds such as honokiol and magnolol.* Research suggests these compounds are antioxidants.* Similarly to lemon balm, it has been said that these bi-phenolic isomers are thought to support relaxation by helping to maintain GABAergic neurotransmission.* The significance of Magnolia's benefits will only become fully apparent once further research is conducted.* We use a highly concentrated 25:1 extract of magnolia, meaning each individual capsule contains the equivalent of over 4g of standard magnolia bark.
Valerian Root (Valeriana Officinalis) is said to have been used since the era of ancient Greece and Rome to support tranquility and sleep.* Valerian contains valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and other antioxidants such as hesperidin and linarin.* Some research has suggested that valerenic acid may support GABAergic neurotransmission.* Several studies have suggested that taking valerian root may reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, as well as improve both the quality and quantity of sleep.* The Valerian root extract we use contains 0.8% valerenic acid.
Erythrina Mulungu, also known as Erythrina Verna, is a medium-sized tree, native to the Amazon rainforest regions of Brazil and Peru. If you have ever ventured into the depths of Amazonia, you might have encountered its coral red flowers, which earned it the alternative name “coral tree.”
The tree bark has long been utilized as a dietary supplement by indigenous Amazonian tribes, for a number of uses, including sleep support and promoting relaxation.*
Mulungu is perhaps not very well known (outside of Shamanic circles). There have not been many human studies done on its constituents, which comprise of alkaloids such as cristamidine, erysodine and hydroxyerythravine, as well as flavonoids and triterpines.*
Mulungu does not appear to have a prevalent action on GABA or glutamate neurotransmission.* Vasconcelos et al. (2004) found that the active extracts didn’t cause any motor coordination impairment in mice either.*
Some recent studies have suggested that Erythrina alkaloids such as erysodine may help to support the modulation of nicotinic receptor channels, but the evidence is limited.* It has been suggested that nicotinic acetylcholine receptors may play a role in mood health, but further research is needed.*
More research is needed before any conclusions can be drawn about any of the aforementioned potential benefits of mulungu for supporting and maintaining health.* Mulungu may also potentially have other benefits, which we will not discuss until further research becomes available.*
We use a highly concentrated 20:1 extract of mulungu, meaning each individual capsule packs the equivalent of 2g (2,000mg) of dried mulungu bark.
Order still yet to arrive.

Hallo Zenstra Team
I started taking it only 3 days ago, I will inform you later. I should take Zen1 only once at first, later two. Two at once or one in the morning and one in the evening? best regards Torsten
Lemello I use every night and I think they are great. I do not use anything artificial now at all. I'm sleeping great
It helps with sleep and feeling a bit more mellow for sure.
