Preliminary and Accelerated Stability Study of Melissa Officinalis Syrup Cultivated in the South of Tocantins
Keywords:herbal medicine, physicochemical stability, medicinal plants, microbiological tests
Melissa officinalis L. (Lamiaceae) is known as a true lemon balm and is popularly used in traditional medicine as a tranquilizer. The present research aimed to propose a source of syrup based on the tincture of M. officinalis and perform preliminary and accelerated stability tests, and microbiological evaluation. The leaves of M. officinalis were collected and after botanical identification, the raw material processing step was followed to obtain the dye. The tincture obtained was used to prepare the syrup based on M. Officinalis. The syrup was used as steps of physical-chemical and microbiological quality control. It was found that the M. Officinalis syrup, in the analysis of pH, organoleptic characteristics, density, volume, and microbiological assay, is by the consulted literature. The observed results indicate that the syrup of M. Officinalis is within the defined parameters, which guarantees the patient the efficacy and safety of the herbal medicine.
