In this video, we're going to talk about the health benefits of passion flower.

I've been studying different herbs that mimic the effects of prescription medications. Passion flower stood out because of its ability to work as a sedative.

In a 2001 clinical trial, researchers found that passion flower was as effective as Oxazepam for relieving anxiety. Oxazepam is a conventional tranquilizer medication.

They also found that there were fewer side effects when using passion flower over conventional medications.

Another study on rats showed a significant increase in deep sleep and a reduction in time it took to fall asleep when using passion flower.

Passion flower contains a compound called GABA. This is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that regulates your mood and counters excitement.

The uses for passion flower are extensive.

• Anti-anxiety

• Sleep issues

• Pain

• Menopausal symptoms
