Purple Passionflower tea contains Vitexin, a substance known to increase an amino acid known as Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA blocks or inhibits certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system. It promotes a calming effect on the brain by slowing the overactive mind and calming racing thoughts - you know - the ones you have at 3.00 am when you can't get back to sleep!
