Subject: How Does Passion Flower Help One Relax?
Passion flower, so called because of its resemblance to the crown of thorns place on Jesus before his crucifixion, has been used to easy anxiety and help one relax for many hundreds of years, particularly in South America. It is believed to work by means of the effect of the alkaloids and flavonoids that the flower contains on the neurotransmitters that help to reduce anxiety and stress. The flavone chrysin, in particular, possesses a calming influence on your central nervous system and is also believed to lower your blood pressure.
Several health benefits have been claimed for passion flower, although its sedative effect and ability to help those suffering insomnia have in particular been substantiated by scientific tests. Once again, traditional uses of a specific natural remedy have been proved, at least in part, by modern science.
