The Passiflora Project
Dr. Siegward Elsas at Oregon Health & Science University’s Epilepsy Center conducted a study to test the safety and effectiveness of using Passionflower extract. Dr. Elsas collaborated with our research department; Oregon's Wild Harvest donated organic Passionflower extract and provided manufacturing expertise to assist in his project. The work has been published in the following journal:
Phytomedicine. 2010 Apr 9.
