Description

Passiflora is a climbing plant, popular in gardens in Europe. It originates from South America and the East Indies and was traditionally used as a nerve tonic in neuralgia.

How It Works

Passiflora is an anxiolytic (calms anxiety). Constituents within Passiflora attach selectively to benzodiazepene receptors, calming the nerves. There are no adverse side effects such as addiction or drowsiness, as is often the case with benzodiazepenes themselves.

No restrictions on use are known.
