Spanish conquerors first learned about passionflower from the Aztecs, who used it for the relief of sleeping and nervous disorders. The plant was taken to Europe where it became widely grown and introduced into European medicine for the relief of nervous tension, restlessness and irritable sleeplessness. In Germany, passionflower is commonly added to children's sedative tea formulas as it can be taken long-term, is gentle and does not have a strong sedative effect. Passionflower is a plant that is known for relieving symptoms of nervous and depressive disorders. It works by mildly depressing the central nervous system and aiding relaxation. The major advantage is, unlike many pharmaceuticals, passionflower is non-habit-forming. Medicinal Use Take to help relieve symptoms of nervous tension, restlessness and irritable sleeplessness.
