PASSIONFLOWER

Passionflower: Effective and Safe

Passionflower extract’s rapid onset of action has been documented, and references exist that indicate its calming effects can be observed within a half-hour of its use.

 

Such quick help is important for those who know they will be facing the impending approach of a stressful period. Moreover, evidence indicates that passionflower extract is as equally effective as pharmaceutical calming agents (the benzodiazepene group) when it comes to treating persistent feelings of nervous anxiety.

 

However, the use of benzodiazepenes can lead to the appearance of undesired side effects, including an intensified lack of concentration and the development of dependence (addiction).

 

In contrast, such side effects do not arise when using passionflower extract, meaning that extended usage is acceptable as long as treatment is being overseen by a consulting health care professional.
