DC 27 (Passion flower) is a traditional herbal remedy use in assisting sleep, especially in cases of stress related agitation and insomnia.
Extract of organically grown passion flower in a base of vegetable glycerine and grain alcohol.
DC27 (Passion Flower) has been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years. Its sedative effects have been recognized and listed in the United States National Formulary up to 1936. Recent studies have confirmed the sedative effects.
Indeed, several recent studies have demonstrated the herb’s vaso-relaxant and anxiolytic (reduced anxiety) effects. In one double blind study, passion flower was shown be as effective as oxazepam in reducing anxiety. Certain studies have also demonstrated passion flower’s capacity to improve GABA, thereby reducing nerve hyperexcitability. In traditional herbal medicine passionflower is touted as being an aphrodisiac. Finally, animal studies have shown cough supressing effects similar to codeine.
Warning / Notes
Consumption with alcohol, or products with sedative properties is not recommended. Consult a health care practitioner before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
