Passion Flower 2022

Passion flower (Passiflora Incarnata) is a climbing vine with white and purple flowers that is native to the southeastern United States and Central and South America. The chemicals in passion flower have calming effects and it has traditionally been used to help with insomnia.

People use passion flower for anxiety, stress, ADHD, pain relief and many other conditions. In general, passion flower is considered safe and nontoxic and can be taken as a supplement or a tea.

Scientists believe passionflower works by increasing levels of a chemical called gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA lowers the activity of some brain cells, making you feel more relaxed.

As with any herbal remedy, there is always the possibility of interaction between passion flower and other treatments or medications. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions that you may have regarding a medical condition.
