Nervine by Provita is a safe and non-addictive Stress Supplement. This vegan formula synergistically combines a potent extract from California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) with Hawthorn berry (Crataegus laevigata). Nervine herbs, such as the popular California poppy, have been proven effective as mild anxiolytics and sedatives, which also help with stress and depression.
A reputable study carried out in France concluded that there is a complementary effect of California poppy associated with Hawthorn berry; the study found that anxiety modifies cardiac rhythm which can then be controlled by Hawthorn berry.

It’s a good alternative to the take instead of pharmaceutical drugs, natural option it’s always good but of coarse it won’t substitute a psychiatric treatment. This I would say is good for people with some stress, not much. Also the capsules are quite big so if you have trouble swallowing big pills this is will be hard for you.
I tried this product a few times and did not notice any difference in the way it affected my mood. It would be difficult for me to review as I don't think I have given it enough opportunity to see if it could work for mild anxiety or depression. I think that any product that is natural is better than going to pharmaceuticals so barring any allergies or reactions I would recommend giving this a try for any mild indicated issues.
I used these a lot and it really was a good natural supplement to prescription drugs. I found that it made me less uptight and stressed and more relaxed in a noticeable, but not annoying way.
It didn't seem to work for my anxiety/stress, though I was working in a high-stress work environment at the time and am somewhat of a high strung person. I never tried using it at night, though that may have helped better (where my body was in an already relaxed state and more receptive).
These stress supplements were real good once I took them for a few times or perhaps I didn't notice until then...But for sure I was able to feel calm, relaxed and had a good sleep. Great that they are made in Canada as well!!
