The Calming Influence of Passion Flower

If you feel overexcited, over-anxious or in need of a calming influence, passion flower extract will do the trick. The best known effect of passion flower is as a relaxant that calms down the stressed and anxious, and helps insomniacs enjoy a good night sleep. Although it will help the hyperactive to calm down, its use with children is not recommended unless under the direction of a doctor who is monitoring its use. Few tests have been carried out on children, and the way that passion flower relaxes you is not totally understood.

However, researchers have a good idea, and believe that substances in passion flower promote the biochemical pathway that converts glutamate to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). This substance is known as an 'inhibitory neurotransmitter' that exerts a calming effect on the brain. This is also believed to be associated with a reduction in 'excitatory neurotransmitters' that increases brain activity. The result is a lowering in brain activity, leading to a feeling of calmness and relaxation.

So if you feel that you need to relax more and maybe overcome your sleep problems, give passion flower a try.
