Reducing Inflammation and Pain
Alleviating Stress and Anxiety
Tilia tomentosa Moench bud extracts (TTBEs) are in the Linden tree. Studies have shown that this compound is effective in reducing anxiety and alleviating stress. The Linden tree contains anxiolytic, an essential oil that can reduce anxiety by limiting the ability of the body to get excited. This also helps explain its ability to help calm hyperactivity in kids.

Components in the Linden tree and in its leaves and flowers can act as a vasodilator, which is a chemical reaction that dilates blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. It is also classified as a hypotensive herb that has flavonoid tiliroside, a compound that has been shown to reduce hypertension.
