Did you know that Passion Flower in it’s herbal form can be used to treat many symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder?
I have often used Passion Flower as a sleep aid. Not only does it help me fall asleep, it helps me stay asleep, which is my biggest problem.
Passion Flower is also good for anxiety and can even help those stomach upsets or headaches that can sometimes happen when you are anxious.
Because of it’s calming effect, it is also good for anxious or restless children (or adults).
Like many herbs, you can buy Passion Flower as an extract, in capsule form, or as a tea.
Extracts are often alcohol based and therefore do not taste very good, but you only take a few drops, usually in a glass of water.
I prefer the capsule form, which is the powdered version of the herb in a capsule.
Not all herbs are available as a tea because of their taste but Passion Flower tea is available.
Be sure to check with a health professional before taking any herbal supplement, especially if you are taking other medications or supplements. And use caution when taking Passion Flower – because of it’s sedative effects, it may be likely to put you to sleep, especially if too much is taken.
