    Passion flower (passiflora incarnata) is useful as a sedative, antispasmodic and mild pain reliever. Passion flower may help to ease insomnia, stress, and anxiety. A study reported in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics concluded that passion flower may decrease pain and reduce muscle spasms - both important for back pain sufferers.
