Calming herb used to support restlessness, tension, insomnia and much more.
Extracts made from the leaves are used for restlessness, nervous tension and insomnia. While it was once thought that the harmala alkaloids were responsible for this herb's calming properties, it is now known that they are present in small quantities and don't have any real effect. The flavonoids are now thought to be the most clinically important constituents.
This climbing plant gets its name from its intricate purple flower. The different parts of the plant, such as the fringe-like crown, are thought to resemble Christ's passion. Passiflora edulis (and not Passifiora incarnata) is the plant responsible for producing the edible fruit.
