Passionflower has several therapeutic properties that make it a potent ally for anxiety relief, improved sleep quality, and stress management.
Among the many other sleep-promoting ingredients used in Relaxium Sleep, Passionflower is one that we thought would be great to delve into. From its ability to aid in anxiety and stress, it can also help the sleep journey. Continue reading for some brief history and the many benefits of Passionflower.
History of Passionflower
Passionflower comes from various parts of the world. They are known for their unique appearance. Discovered in 1569, passionflower has been used for many purposes including medicine and food.
With its calming and sedative effects, passionflower has been used to aid in feelings of anxiety as well as address sleeping problems such as insomnia.
What are the benefits of Passionflower?
There are a number of benefits when it comes to Passionflower. These benefits include:
- Stress/anxiety relief
- Improved sleep
- Mood enhancement
- Gastrointestinal support
- Anti-inflammatory properties
Unfortunately, stress is a widespread feeling many experience. Statistics in 2022 led to the recognition that “About 33 percent of people report feeling extreme stress, 77 percent of people experience stress that affects their physical health, 73 percent of people have stress that impacts their mental health, 48 percent of people have trouble sleeping because of stress.”
Global statistics are also not promising, seeing that another statistic showed that “75 percent of Americans experienced moderate to high stress levels in the past month.”
These are just a couple of statistics that add to the narrative that stress is a continuing problem in society. With this in mind, solutions are needed.
Passionflower has been said to have calming effects due to its ability to increase levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that helps to reduce brain activity to promote feelings of relaxation.
We will later dive into the promotion of sleep as well as antioxidants that also help to alleviate feelings of stress.
Passionflower has also been said to improve sleep quality. As you know, here at Relaxium we love this considering we know how important sleep is.
Millions around the world struggle to sleep, this is why Relaxium Sleep was developed. Clinical Neurologist Dr. Eric Ciliberti developed Relaxium Sleep, a safe and effective sleep supplement designed to help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake up feeling refreshed and alert.
Passionflower extract is used in Relaxium Sleep for its anti-stress remedy that helps to combat everyday anxiety by regulating neurotransmitters in the brain that control mood and sleep. With its ability to help improve sleep onset and maintenance, sleep is able to occur faster. Not to mention, staying asleep longer due to the reduction of nighttime awakenings.
Take into account the properties we mentioned, less stress/ anxiety and better sleep. These two components are already fantastic for mood, but Passionflower also has anxiolytic properties.
These anxiolytic properties help to reduce feelings of anxiety, affecting mood in a positive way. The less anxiety felt, the better the mood will be. While more research needs to be done, passionflower has even been suspected to have potential antidepressant effects; with its relationship to GABA and lowering of stress levels, it will be interesting to see what a few more years of research will conclude.
The health of the gut is very important for overall well-being. If you aren’t familiar with the phrase, gut health is the overall well-being of the gastrointestinal tract. The gut consists of the small intestine, the large intestine, and the stomach. Gut health affects all areas such as:
- Immune system: The gut and the immune system work together. A healthy gut has a balanced microbiota. Without this, the immune response can diminish.
- Digestion and nutrient absorption: Foods provide the body with nutrients, if proper food isn’t eaten, the body cannot absorb said nutrients; affecting digestion.
- Mental health: The gut and the brain are connected. An unhealthy gut has been known to worsen feelings of depression or anxiety.
- Metabolism: Metabolism is greatly affected by gut health. Dysbiosis is the official term for an unbalanced gut so when this happens, the body’s metabolism and weight will fluctuate.
- Skin health: Acne, eczema, and even rosacea can occur in the skin when gut health is unbalanced.
Passionflower has compounds known as flavonoids. These possess anti-inflammatory properties that help in areas such as digestion. Inflammation is a symptom that can lead to an unhealthy gut.
This is where those flavonoids come into play. These as well as phenolic acids have shown anti-inflammatory effects.
Chronic inflammation can be very damaging to the body due to its ability to:
- Damage tissue: Overall health of tissues and organs can be negatively affected by inflammation. This is due to oxidative stress that can then damage cells and tissues.
- Increase risk of disease: Cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and even certain cancers can occur due to chronic inflammation.
- Negatively impact the immune system: The immune system is unable to be as strong due to inflammation. Autoimmunity can occur which makes infections more susceptible.
