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.

I appreciate that this is a natural supplement, it seems to help with my restless legs at night. However, I can not say that this works well during the day time as I did not feel much difference.
Having anxiety and depression is a constant battle in my head. Using Nervine calms me down and helps with getting to sleep. Knowing that it is made with natural ingredients is an incredible bonus!
It doesn't work as well as I thought. I still wake up in the middle of the night. It tastes really bad so you need to just swallow it with water.
I have used this supplement a couple times before bed and I have had restful sleeps, so I feel like it works. I am going to try it more regularly to see its full effects for stress and anxiety!
I was interested in trying this product to manage stress. I mainly took it before bed as it said it may work as a mild sedative. I don't normally have major sleep issues so I can't say if it helped me fall asleep any better or not. This may be a great product to take over a longer period of time. I can't say I noticed much difference myself! I would mainly recommend this to people who have more serious stress and sleep issues.
