Passion flower, also known as Passiflora incarnata, is a plant native to North America that has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for stress and anxiety. The plant contains flavonoids and alkaloids that have been shown to reduce inflammation, calm the nervous system, and promote relaxation.
Passion flower is also believed to have anti-cancer properties, due to its ability to stimulate the immune system and inhibit tumor growth.
Additionally, passion flower has been found to improve sleep quality by increasing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep cycles by calming brain activity. Passion flower can be consumed in various forms, including tea or supplements, and has few side effects when taken in moderation.
