Passionflower for the Treatment of Postpartum Care

Passionflower, Passiflora incarnata, is a climbing, flowering vine native to the Southeastern United States, South and Central America. 16th century Spanish explorers introduced the plant to Europe, where it became widely used in traditional folk medicine for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, seizures and hysteria. Studies have shown Passionflower increases gamma-Aminobutyric acid, also known as GABA, which lowers brain cell activity, increasing relaxation.
