Overview of Passion Flower

Passion flower, also known as Passiflora, is actually a group of hundreds of species of flowering plants. These can be vines or shrubs. Some of the species of Passiflora produce the fruit passionfruit, which can be a small purple fruit, or a large shiny orange-yellow fruit. Passiflora grows worldwide except for Antarctica and Africa.


Passion Flower Through out History

For centuries, indigenous peoples in North America, Central America and South America have dried and used passion flower leaves as a medicine to treat anxiety. The dried leaves were either ingested as tea or smoked. European colonists adopted the use of passion flower leaves to calm the nerves. European physicians also historically prescribed passion flower for treating anxiety, difficulty sleeping, and gastro-intestinal problems stemming from nerves. Folk medicine has long considered passion flower a calming herb.


Clinical Studies of Passion Flower

In a 2001 study, two groups of patients were treated for generalized anxiety disorder, one group was given Oxazepam, a well known pharmaceutical; the other group was given passion flower extract. At the end of the trial, it was found that the passion flower extract performed as well as the Oxazepam. However, the Oxazepam had significantly more problems related to job performance impairment.

1. Passion flower extract has been clinically found to be a reliable aid in treating tenseness, restlessness, and irritability. Many pharmacological investigations have confirmed its effects.

2. In further studies, passion flower extract was determined to be significantly superior over clonidine, a substance used for opiate detoxification, in the management of 

mental symptoms. This suggested that passion flower may be used in the management of opiate withdrawal. The study noted that “[a]ccumulating evidence shows the efficacy of Passiflora incarnata extract in the management of anxiety.”

3. Safety of Passion Flower Passion flower is generally considered to be safe to use and well tolerated. There are few reported serious side effects. Research suggests that passionflower is a safe and effective treatment for anxiety.

Side effects of passionflower may include; nausea, vomiting, asthma, skin rashes, drowsiness, and increased heartbeat. However, some reported reactions may have been caused by impurities in combination products, and not as a result of the passion flower extract. Passion flower extract should be used cautiously with Kava extract.
