Swanson Passion Flower Liquid Extract is a dietary supplement that includes sugar-free and alcohol-free extract of the aboveground parts of the passionflower (Passiflora). The preparation is available in liquid form. The dosing convenience is ensured by a bottle provided with a dropper.

The supplement has a calming and anxiolytic effect. It’s recommended for people who poorly cope with stress and strong emotions, feel unreasonable anxiety, struggle with insomnia. As an alternative, it can also be used by people struggling with addictions, and struggling with the disruptive symptoms of the withdrawal syndrome.

Passiflora incarnata is a perennial native to tropical regions of America. Indigenous people have used it for centuries to treat insomnia and reduce nervous tension. Today, extracts from Passiflora are treated as a herbal drug (according to the European Medicines Agency) with hypnotic and sedative effects.

For therapeutic purposes, above-ground parts of the plant are used, including fruit and flowers. The extraction can take place with the use of alcohol or other solvent. The most important ingredients isolated from Passiflora are flavonoids. It seems that they are responsible for the specific properties of this plant. Some scientists also point to the highly probable presence of an unidentified benzoflavone compound (BZF), which may also turn out to be the key active ingredient that determines Passiflora.

Passiflora as a plant anxious
Extracts from Passiflora are extremely valued due to their sedative and anxiolytic properties. It’s the effect of the interaction of bioactive components on the GABA-ergic system. Researchers have proven that the flavonoids present in the above-ground parts interact with specific subtypes of GABA receptors. It seems that the mechanism of their action is analogous to the mechanism of action of benzodiazepines. On the one hand, they function as agonists of α1-subunit receptors, which gives a calming effect (partly also anticonvulsive), on the other, they affect the α2 subunits, which in turn results in the reduction of anxiety. Importantly, they do not show any benzodiazepine specific side effects and are not addictive.

Passiflora for sleeping issues
Extracts from the passion flower are great for people complaining about sleep problems. They have a soporific effect, shorten latency and promote sleep continuity. They have a positive effect on the quality of sleep, especially the length of the REM phase, which is crucial for good rest, night regeneration and health. On this occasion, it’s worth mentioning rodent studies in which it has been proven that regular disturbance of REM sleep leads to the death of animals in just a few weeks.

Tests showed that people who had taken a Passiflora infusion for a week before bedtime slept much better than a placebo-controlled group. All participants of the experiment reported that they were falling asleep quickly, did not wake up at night, and in the morning they felt more rested and refreshed. In addition, some participants were subjected to a polysomnograph, and the results confirmed an improvement in their sleep quality.

Passiflora and the fight against addictions
In the course of the study, it was shown that the unique staphylococcus (BZF) found in aboveground parts of the plant can significantly reduce the withdrawal symptoms of nicotine or opiate addictive substances. This gives reasons to include Passiflora extracts in the treatment of addicts who want to give up addiction and struggle with symptoms of withdrawal syndrome.

The most studies in this field have been carried out on animals, but they give a solid basis to conclude that Passiflora can effectively alleviate adverse symptoms caused by discontinuation of addictive substances, such as pain, tremor, anxiety, and insomnia. It does not show addictive effects itself, so it can be used for a long time.

Passiflora to relieve the symptoms of ADHD
It’s an effective modulator of the nervous system, which works great in reducing the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The two months of research with children diagnosed with ADHD showed that Passiflora extracts were just as effective as methylphenidate, the most popular pharmaceutical used in patients with ADHD. In contrast, they did not cause side effects, such as eating disorders or nervousness.

In conclusion, Swanson Passion Flower Liquid Extract is the optimal choice for people living under severe stress and tension, which generates negative emotions and adversely affects sleep. The supplement promotes the achievement of peace and inner balance, and additionally allows for a natural solution to the problem of insomnia. It can also support the fight against addictions. The lack of alcohol and sugar gives the product a universal character.
