Passionflower is known for being a sedative and a tranqualizer. It relaxes twitching and muscle tension, fights nervousness, anxiety, and stress. It is also considered an anti-depressant and menopause relief.
Passionflower helps fight withdrawal symptoms from opiate medications like morphine. Furthermore, when passionflower was joined with drugs that control psychological withdrawl symptoms (including sress and irritability) the effects were better in comparison to the drug alone.
