Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata) is an herb that has been around for a long time. Traditionally used in the Americas, passionflower has gained widespread usage in Europe and other parts of the world. Primarily, passionflower is used as a calming herb for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, hysteria, and other ailments. Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is present in the brain and some people may be low in GABA levels. Passionflower helps increase GABA level in the brain and this in-turn reduces the activity of some brain cells responsible for stress. Ultimately, you feel relaxed taking passionflower.
The effects of passionflower tend to be milder than valerian (Valeriana officinalis) or kava (Piper methysticum), 2 other herbs used to treat anxiety. Passionflower is often combined with valerian, lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), or other calming herbs. "One study of 36 people with generalized anxiety disorder found that passionflower was as effective as the drug oxazepam (Serax) for treating symptoms. However, the study lacked a placebo group, so it is not considered to be definitive. In another study of 91 people with anxiety symptoms, researchers found that an herbal European product containing passionflower and other herbal sedatives significantly reduced symptoms compared to placebo. A more recent study found that patients who were given passionflower before surgery had less anxiety, but recovered from anesthesia just as quickly, than those given placebo"
