Passion flower has a long history of use among Native Americans. Today, Passion flower is mainly used in the United States and Europe to relieve anxiety, restlessness, and insomnia. It is also recommended for the relief of nausea caused by nervousness or anxiety. It works by slowing the pulse, decreasing arterial tension, and quieting respiration and pulmonary blood pressure.
Passion flower also decreases muscle activity that can play a part in stress-related muscle spasms. Passionflower has been used traditionally for menstrual pain and diarrhea.
