The primary use of Passion flower is in its sedative and nervine actions and thus is a great help in cases of insomnia, stress and anxiety. It is also used to lower blood pressure. Passion flower has a calming effect on the central nervous system, making it effective in easing nerve pain and against diseases such as neuralgia and shingles. It induces restful sleep without grogginess the following day. Due to its anti- spasmodic action, it can assist with the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, epilepsy and asthma. It may also be smoked as an interrupter to nicotine.
