Passiflora incarnata ExtractPassionflower has a long established history of use in the arsenal of traditional herbalism in North and Central America. The plant has been valued as a non-habit forming sedative and tranquilizer with the power to gently calm frayed nerves and promote restful sleep.
Its activity may be due in large part to MAO-inhibiting beta carbolines, the very same compounds that can be found in the famed visionary vine, Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi)and Syrian rue (Peganum harmala).
Passionflower contains the calming alkaloids harmine and is the only currently known plant source other than the Banisteriopsis species and Peganum harmala to contain haraline. In a word these alkalods promote a sense of calm. This calming action was well known by such North American native tribes including the Algonquin. The plant has been also given as a pain reliever to treat headaches, toothaches, and menstrual pain. A valued ally.
