Helps With Sleeping
Arguably the most common medicinal usage of passionflower tea or extracts would be to help alleviate insomnia, which is the persistent inability to fall asleep or remain asleep through the evening. More particularly, recent researchers have concluded that their findings imply low-dose usage of passionflower tea yields short-term subjective sleep benefits for adults with sleep issues.

Eases Pain
Due to the antispasmodic and sedative effects, physical pain is also relieved by passionflower in a myriad of ways. Try it for premenstrual cramps or to lessen headache pain. It could also alleviate muscle discomfort and toothaches. The popular book, “The Encyclopedia of Medicinal Plants” suggests passionflower notably for pain which causes difficulty falling asleep.

Helps to Lower Blood Pressure
In one study passionflower extract elevated degrees of an anti-oxidant enzyme and reduced degrees of oxidized lipids — lipids broken from accumulated toxins and waste material. Investigators in that study administered doses of 8 milligrams daily for 5 days. The results of this show that taking the herb may help to lower high blood pressure.

Treat Anxiety
People have used passionflower traditionally to treat anxiety and continue to do so today. A study published in the October 2001 issue of the "Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics" found that passionflower was as effective as the prescription medication oxazepam for treating generalized anxiety disorder. A review of studies published in the February 2006 issue of the "British Journal of Psychiatry" mentions passionflower having potential for sedative use in people with mental health problems.
