Passionflower: Properties and benefits

Passionflower is an herb with exceptional sedative properties. It has been known since ancient times for its relaxing and sedative properties, very useful in cases of insomnia, hysteria, convulsions and neurasthenia. It is also very useful when you experience states of anxiety that can cause excessive agitation. It has muscle relaxant properties and is therefore able to prevent muscle contractions and spasms in particular on the organs of the digestive system (thus promoting intestinal transit). It has proven analgesic properties and is therefore particularly indicated in all those morbid conditions in which more or less acute pain is experienced. It is also a plant rich in flavonoids and polyphenols and therefore also boasts antioxidant, antibacterial, very important antiseptic and anti-inflammatory (especially on the organs of the digestive system). It can also be taken in herbal tea combined with other herbs that increase its already strong analgesic, sedative and spasmolytic properties such as chamomile, valerian, hawthorn and lemon balm whenever our body requires its use. Something that happens more and more often with the frenetic and extremely stressful rhythms of contemporary society.
