Passion in a Fruit

Passion Fruit grows in the Amazonian regions of Peru, where warm and humid weather boost the crop. This fruit was discovered in 1569. Since then, native communities close to that region continue to use it. Passion Fruit has amazing properties. And perhaps the most remarkable is as a natural sedative. If drunk as an infusion it has a relaxing power comparable with mild sleeping pills, but with no side effects, because it is 100% natural.

The Passion Fruit is a delicious and healthy weapon to combat stress and depression. The composition of Passion Fruit is very light, since two thirds of its weight is water. It also has high levels of vitamins and minerals. It is very nutritious and can be consumed daily. It has large amounts of vitamins A and C, both essential for skin care, vision and strengthening the immune system. It also contains gamma-amino butyric acid, an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain that helps reduce blood pressure and fights mild hypertension.

As a very low calorie, high fibre fruit, it is perfect for weight-loss and to combat constipation. Drinking Passion fruit juice daily helps regulate blood pressure, relieves stress, and helps to keep kidneys clean. Passion Fruit is rich in flavour and so an ideal ingredient in many recipes. It is called "Passion Fruit" for a reason!
