How it works
Passionflower traditionally induces sleep
In Western herbal medicine, passionflower is traditionally utilised for both inducing sleep and promoting refreshing sleep, as well as for decreasing the time it takes to get to sleep.
Passionflower also relieves symptoms of stress, irritability and mild anxiety, and supports the nervous system and the relaxation of the muscles, according to its traditional use in Western herbal medicine.
Ziziphus calms the mind and spirit in traditional Chinese medicine
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) philosophy, sleeping difficulties are believed to be associated with a disruption in a type of energy called Shen, which includes both the mind and spirit.
One of the primary herbs in Oriental Botanicals Somnicalm, ziziphus is traditionally taken in TCM to calm the mind and spirit, as well as to provide relief for sleeplessness, reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and decrease disturbed sleep.
