Herbal Medicine Chest - Passion Flower
If you are experiencing stress, anxiety or insomnia, consider trying Passion Flower. Passiflora incarnate is the dried aerial parts (leaves, stems and flowers) of the plant. It is available as tincture and extracts; take one dropperful of the tincture in a little warm water, or two capsules of extract, up to four times a day as needed - children should take half the adult dose. Passion Flower should not be used by women who are pregnant - active compounds may be uterine stimulants. When purchasing, look for standardized whole plant extracts or capsules containing no less than 0.8 percent flavonoids or isovitexin. If you are taking MAO-inhibiting anti-depressant drugs, consult your physician before taking Passion Flower.
