Passionflower is one of the best-researched, with multiple studies in animals and humans as well as a long history of clinical use. One double-blind, randomized controlled trial concluded that Passionflower extract is as effective of a remedy for the management of Generalized Anxiety Disorder with a lower incidence of impairment of job performance compared to the benzodiazepine oxazepam.
Pascoflair may be taken on an as needed basis though there is merit in taking it proactively; whether that is to start your day in relaxation or when you anticipate conflict. The best dose is 1 tablet twice daily for adults, adolescents above the age of 12. Pascoflair has a noticeable effect; rapid onset within 30minutes and collectively my patients take comfort in knowing that it will manage their restlessness on a repeated, predictable basis. In this manner, patients don’t resort to stress coping mechanisms, nor projecting their inner turmoil onto their loved ones – what’s the outcome? They take a breath, letting that calm feeling wash over them, and step into their life in alignment.
