Organic Tea: 4 Amazing Health Benefits of Passionflower Tea

Passionflower tea boasts many different benefits, including the ability to lower anxiety levels and helping lower blood pressure. There are several notable side effects, too, examples of which include dizziness, drowsiness, hypotension, and even upset stomach.

However, these side effects are rare, and mainly affect people consume an excessive amount of this organic tea, or are allergic to members of the genus Passiflora. The species of plant primarily used to make it is Passiflora incarnata, which is generally recognized as safe in the United States.

More commonly known as maypop, the passion flower has been used to make tea in both North and South America for hundreds of years. It was eventually introduced to European markets, and is now sought after worldwide. Its flowers, leaves, and stems are all good for a wide array of medical uses; the tea is brewed using only the leaves.

Most of the health benefits of passionflower tea are the result of significant levels of harmine, flavonoids and organic acids such as linolenic, palmitic and myristic acid. It also contains different kinds of amino acids, coumarins, and antioxidants.

Here are some of the health benefits of the said tea:

Deals with Symptoms of Menopause

Menopause can be a challenging and stressful time in a woman’s life, bringing about mood swings, hormonal imbalances, anxiety, and sleeplessness.

The sedative and soothing effects of passionflower tea can help balance neurotransmitters, and also stimulate the release of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which is known to improve mood and regulate the hormones.

Helps Deal with Skin Problems

One of the traditional uses of passionflower tea includes its application for rashes, burns, irritation or inflammation on the skin. This can come in many different forms, from eczema to psoriasis, to acne, to burns, and even allergic reactions.

Topical application of this tea is not common; however, a potent brew can have notable effects in treating the mentioned conditions.

Reduces Inflammation

Reducing inflammation all over the body is what a ton of organic acids and antioxidants are really good at, and the compounds found in passionflower tea are no exception. This tea has long been recommended for joint disorders and arthritis as well as gout, hemorrhoids and inflammation of the gut.

The soothing active ingredients can help to relieve the symptoms of indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, bloating and cramping, as well as chronic inflammation caused by free radical activities.

Promotes Heart Health

The blood pressure-lowering qualities of passionflower tea are well-known, and are the byproduct of a certain antioxidant known as edulilic acid. By treating hypertension, this tea can help prevent atherosclerosis, heart attacks, stroke and even coronary heart disease. Generally, it reduces the strain on the cardiovascular system.

This effect can also help relieve people of their headaches and migraines by lowering the pressure and inflammation in capillaries near the temples.

There you have it; these are some of the benefits you can gain with just a single cup of passionflower tea. Of course, it would be a whole lot better to pair it with other organic food products for a stronger impact on your overall health.
