I first discovered this remedy as recommended by natives in Brazil, consuming passion fruit was a way to relax, sleep better and have less nightmares. (I would eat the inside of the fruit including all the seeds as directed.)
Now that I am back in the US and it is hard to find passion fruit, so I use the herbal supplement Passion Flower.
Ah, a nights rest. After taking the supplement and sleeping, I find the next morning that I don’t feel tired or lethargic, or lose energy, I just feel calm and centered. I have been taking it for about 6 months now. (5 x 350mg)
I find it is better than my Rx Meds: Lunesta which makes me feel tired the next day (and cloudy thinking like I have cotton in my head), Sonata which can make me grouchy and Ambien which makes me think dark thoughts (and the big S) the next day. All of these Rx, I have used over 20 times so I am very familiar.
Remember fighting depression and suicidal thinking requires good sleep hygiene and part of that is getting 8 hours per night.
I wish you well.
