What Is Passion Flower?
Passionflower (aka Passiflora Incarnata) is a live, wild perennial climbing vine plant found in nature that has long history of use to help promote restful sleep and support the body’s natural response to mild and occasional stress.* The Passionflower plant can bloom anywhere from 10 to 30 feet from its root and features blooming bulbs and a yellow, berry-like fruit.
Why Choose a Passion Flower Tincture Over Capsules?
It’s best to choose a Passion Flower tincture instead of capsules, since liquid herbal extracts have a quicker absorption rate. By extracting the natural phytochemicals out of their cellular and structural plant matrices it makes them available for immediate absorption. The liquid format can begin to bypass the digestion process. Your body begins absorbing liquid extracts as soon as they reach the mucous membranes found in our mouth, stomach and small intestines.
Capsules aren’t as effective as they aren’t digested in the mouth like liquids, as they bypass the initial digestion process. In addition, extracts are more potent than pills or capsules as they contain volatile oils and esters, the key components that make them so beneficial as supplements.
How Does Maxx Herb Passion Flower Liquid Extract Compare to Passion Flower Tea?
Just making Passion-Flower tea does not release the volatile oils and esters, which are the key compounds that make Passion-Flower a very effective herbal dietary supplement. We use a proprietary extraction process which releases the volatile oils and esters ensuring the highest quality extract available for maximum effectiveness. The plant and flower is harvested at the peak of readiness, and carefully shade-dried to retain its full color and aroma, then is properly extracted.
