VALERIAN + PASSION FLOWER formula properties

Passion flower together with valerian is a traditional combination of two herbs that are certainly well known by enthusiasts of natural medicine. Passion flower has been used for thousands of years by native Indian tribes as a sedative and a herbal remedy that helps to fall asleep. Valerian had a similar role in ancient Greece and Rome. Current research indicates that the biologically active compounds found in these plants increase the activity of GABA – the main inhibitory neurotransmitter that is crucial for emotional stability and coping with stress. In addition, it has been proven that they reduce blood pressure and the level of cortisol, known as a “stress hormone” because it gets released in high amounts during stressful situations. These effects might have a positive influence on the heart. Furthermore, passion flower contributes to the increase of the activity of dopamine and serotonin – two neurotransmitters whose appropriate level is essential for a good mood. With these features, both components of this synergistic recipe perfectly complement each other and reinforce their properties – they reduce anxiety with nervous tension and help to achieve internal stability. Both passion flower and valerian also have a beneficial effect on the quality of sleep and the effectiveness of mental and body regeneration. Moreover, both ingredients of this composition support healthy and deep sleep, but each in a slightly different way. Passion flower reinforces the REM phase during which our mind rests most efficiently, whereas thanks to valerian we can more effectively use the long-wave sleep that supports body recovery.

VALERIAN + PASSION FLOWER is a classic herbal recipe that will help to calm down. It is recommended primarily as a natural way to enjoy a deep and healthy sleep so it usually should be used shortly before bedtime. Besides that, this combination also helps to improve general mood, reduce anxiety and strengthen long-term stress resilience.

Ingredients of Valerian BioSynergy™ formula:

Valerian
  • extract 0.8% valerenic acid (500 mg / 2 caps.)
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is a very popular herb that commonly occurs in moist areas of Europe, Asia and North America. It exhibits numerous health benefits that have spot interest of ancient medical experts, including the Greek “father of medicine” Hippocrates and a renowned doctor - Pedanius Dioscorides. It is used primarily as a sedative and anxiolytic ingredient as it stimulates the activity of GABA - the main inhibitory neurotransmitter. Besides that, valerian acts as a diastolic - it helps to relax smooth muscles in the stomach and the intestines. The main biologically active compounds of valerian are: valeric acid, isovaleric acid, myristicin acid.
Passion flower | Passiflora Incarnata
  • extract 20% flavonoids (300 mg / 2 caps.)
Passiflora is an herb that comes from the North and Central Americas where it has been used by local Indian tribes for thousands of years. The European colonizers brought passiflora to the Old Continent in the 18th century. This herb has become so popular because it regulates the activity of serotonin, the so-called “happiness hormone”, as well as GABA - a key neurotransmitter responsible for stress resilience that reduces the intensity of emotional reactions. Passiflora supplementation supports better sleep and helps to relax. It also increases libido since active compounds found in this plant improve testosterone production. The most important of those compounds are indole alkaloids and the essential oil which is a composition of 150 different ingredients.

VALERIAN + PASSION FLOWER formula benefits

Improves quality of sleep: Maypop is known for its sleep-facilitating properties that have been confirmed in clinical trials. Volunteers receiving passion flower extract showed an improvement in sleep quality and an increase of total sleep time. The results of polysomnographic studies have shown that the average time of the REM sleep phase has increased after using the extract from this plant. During this phase of sleep the mind rests most effectively. Valerian is a popular herbal remedy known particularly for its ability to calm down the nerves. It has been proven that it helps to fall asleep relatively faster and to wake up feeling more refreshed. Unlike the passion flower, it extends the phase of so-called slow-wave sleep during which the body is getting the most rest and its regeneration is most intense. Therefore, the combination of these two plants allows one to fall asleep quickly and helps the body to regenerate more effectively.

Enhances stress resilience: GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter. It is often considered a kind of calming agent for the mind as it reduces redundant nerve impulses. Therefore, its proper activity makes it easy to deal with stress at both physical and emotional levels. Biologically active compounds contained in passion flower and valerian support the activity of this neurotransmitter. Chrysin present in the maypop acts on receptors for GABA and increases the effects of their stimulation. Active substances of valerian promote the release of the GABA molecules into synapses while reducing their reuptake and enzymatic degradation. Thanks to those mechanisms, this neurotransmitter can influence its specific receptors longer and more effectively. It has been proven during clinical trials that both of these plants help to maintain peace of mind in stressful situations. The measurable results of this effect included a reduced blood pressure and heart rate as well as a reduction in cortisol level, i.e. “stress hormone”.

Stabilization of mood: GABA, dopamine and serotonin are key neurotransmitters essential for a good mood. GABA calms both the mind and the body. Dopamine is secreted during stimulation of the “reward system” in the brain. Serotonin is often referred to as the “happiness hormone” because its balanced activity is essential for a sense of mental comfort. It has been proven that Passiflora incarnata inhibits the activity of the enzyme which decomposes the dopamine and serotonin molecules. Thanks to this, these neurotransmitters act longer in the synapse and affect their target neurons. Passiflora together with valerian stimulates the activity of GABA as active compounds of these two plants stimulate the release of GABA molecules into the synapse, reduce their breakdown processes and stimulate GABA receptors. This way, passiflora and valerian help to regulate emotional responses and their intensivity. All in all, they might induce a good mood and stabilize it so it does not change under the influence of minor stimuli.
