Herb Pharm Passionflower/Passiflora Incarnata and Edulis Extract, 1 oz
Passionflower extract is generally taken to combat insomnia, stress and anxiety, blood circulatory issues and weight gain. Completely non-addictive, passionflower is highly recommended if you are having disturbed nights, panic and restlessness.
Passionflower extract comes from parts of passion flower that grow on long perennial vines in the United States and Europe. Commonly known as maypop, these are dark colored flowers often used as medicinal products.
The Many Uses of Passionflower Extract
Passionflower extract's main active component is a monoflavanoid known as Chrysin. The other active ingredients in passionflower include alkaloids, flavonoids, sterols, amino acids, saparin, and cyanogenic glycoside, etc. that burn calories and encourage the brain cell to have a rest. These chemicals have sleep-inducing, sedative, and anti-spasmodic properties, which is why passionflower extract has been used for nearly two centuries as a remedy for a wide range of medical conditions.
Passionflower is ideal for people who suffer from disorders related to sleep such as insomnia, epilepsy, and anxiety. Passionflower extract also has an aphrodisiac effect, which makes it great for people suffering from a loss of libido.
How Does Passionflower Extract Work?
Passionflower extract targets the central nervous system and works to ease tension and prevent twitching in the muscles. This calming effect does not affect brain function or respiratory rate, unlike what most pharmaceutical sedatives do. Natural passionflower extract is therefore much safer than medications with sedative effects.
Why Use This Passionflower Extract?
Herb Pharm prepares Passionflower Extract from the flowering tips (leaf, flower and succulent stem) of Passiflora spp. vines which are Certified Organically Grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
To assure optimal extraction of Passionflower's bioactive compounds, only the young, tender flowering tips of the vines are hand-harvested and then shade-dried and taken directly to the laboratory and thoroughly extracted. This Passionflower is never fumigated or irradiated.
