Three ways passionflower can benefit you
1. Mental stress
Undoubtedly, passionflower is a great plant for keeping you chilled, dropping your stress levels and keeping you focused. With a long history of treating stress and anxiety relief, passionflower is thought to help ease pain and restlessness. It's said to boost gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels, slowing the activity of the brain. This encourages the mind and body to calm down, leading to relaxation and feelings of peace.
3. Gut health
Passionflower has also been known to ease the stomach. Two additional strains in the Passiflora family have demonstrated stomach-soothing properties, and things often run in the family! Although gut health studies have only been demonstrated on rats so far, many people refer to passionflower to help benefit digestive health.
