A traditional herbals medicinal product used for the temporary relief of symptoms associated with stress, such as mild anxiety, and to aid sleep.
Passiflora is a beautiful plant originally from Mexico, where it was used by the Aztecs for its sedative properties. It was brought into Europe by the Spanish Jesuits under the name of "Passion flower".
The aerial part of the plant contains flavonoids which contribute to its beneficial action for sleeping problems. It may progressively bring back natural sleep for insomniacs. It is not addictive or habit forming.
Unique Freeze- grinding process
In order to extract the best from each plant with all of it’s active ingredients intact, Arkopharma uses a hi-tech process known as freeze-grinding.
This process consists of powdering the active part of the dried plant by cold-crushing it in liquid nitrogen at -196 degrees. This produces a perfectly fine, homogeneous powder – the whole plant powder or plant totum.
Why is cold used? Studies have shown that heat and oxidation occur during standard grinding procedures which can cause deterioration of vitamins, enzymes, volatile substances and many active principles.
Therefore the plant totum obtained by freeze-grinding contains not only the whole of the active principles but also the plant constituents that act synergistically to provide greater efficacy.
All Arkocaps capsules, therefore, consist of whole powder in order to bring you all of the plant components fully intact.
