Extracts (Passionflower) — TD = >900 mg/kg ipr mouse (CAN). Extracts, oral or peritoneal, reduce spontaneous locomotor activity in mice and prolong their sleep (SHT). Flavonoids, more than alkaloids, may contribute to antianxiety and relaxing effects (PED). Harmala alkaloids produce drowsiness, inhibit the enzyme MAO, and relieve smooth muscle cramps. Apigenin is well known as an antiinflammatory and antispasmodic sedative (PNC). Hamane alkaloids are CNS- stimulant at doses of 3–6 mg/human, but hallucinogenic and toxic at 500–600 mg (HH2). But the presence of harmine-type alkaloids is questionable (HH2; PH2). Passicol inhibits many bacteria, molds and yeast, group A hemolytic streptococci more so than Staphylococcus aureus, with Candida albicans intermediate (CAN).

Abnormal gut permeability may be created by an imbalance in various species of intestinal bacteria and the overgrowth of undesirable bacteria or yeasts such as Candida albicans. A ‘yeast infection,” whatever the cause, can aggravate gut permeability, allergies, and inflammatory symptoms.
