Customer Review

“Last year June I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I was devastated -  I didnt think this could happen to me. I was placed on Xanax but the side effects were too much for me to handle. I decided to make lifestyle choices and use natural and herbal medication to help. When I discovered these passion flower capsules, I was skeptical at first, but I gave them a try. They have really helped me with not only my anxiety, but I also find I sleep better at night. I am still not 100% where I want to be, but I am really happy with this more natural & healthy alternative to tranquilisers. – by Wei Ling, Woodlands, Singapore.

Product Description

The full-spectrum passion flower capsules use the species Passiflora incarnata as its active ingredient. P. incarnata, more commonly known as purple passion flower or maypop, has been known to have very strong anti-anxiety and calming properties. While the exact mechanism of how this occurs is not known, studies done on the plant have shown that extracts from the plant act in a similar way to benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines are medications like Valium and Xanax that are typically used to treat anxiety disorders, to calm restlessness and for sedation.

The most important health benefits of passion flower are:

  • "Natural valium" that stimulates a naturally calming response in the brain
  • Reduces anxiety and panic disorders, helpful in treating insomnia
  • Relieves gastrointestinal pain and discomfort
  • Lowers blood pressure

The brain functions and relies on the transferring and creation of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are the stimulating or depressant factors that turn pathways in the brain on and off. One of the more important neurotransmitters that turn off certain pathways, including those that induce anxiety and insomnia, is known as GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid).

It has been postulated that the effect of passion flower can be attributed to the fact that it increases the concentration of GABA in the brain. The GABA then switches off various pathways, usually those related to the “fight or flight” response. This causes the feeling of calmness and an eventual reduction in anxiety. Additionally, it is useful as a supplementation to help against insomnia. While there are many different causes of insomnia, studies have boiled it down to one simple fact: the over-activity or stimulation of the brain which is inappropriate as it should be switched off when sleeping. The exact mechanism of how this happens is not well understood.

Some postulate that the anxiolytic effects of the passion flower reduce anxiety allowing for better sleep, while others believe it has to do with the GABA stimulation of the brain. Because the main effect of passion flower is to reduce anxiety, it also increases the levels of antioxidant enzymes in the body which help fight against free radicals and oxidized lipids. These oxidized lipids are what cause atherosclerotic damage to blood vessels, causing an increase in blood pressure.
