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 didn’t really notice much difference with these. I am fairly stress free so maybe it just had a slight calming affect on me but I’m not sure. I do like how it is a natural product and would try again if I were in a more stressful situation to see how it works then.
I guess in order to give Nervine by Provita a full review I would have to attempt to try it during a very stressful period of my life but I definitely did give it a try. I like the fact that it's made of natural ingredients rather than prescribed non-natural contents. The fact that it is safe to take and is not addictive is also a definite plus. Overall I'm not too sure how it would react during a real test but it did not affect me negatively in any way and I definitely felt better throughout my trial!
I found that this product didn't seem to change my overall stress. Im a very calm and stress free person and so I did not feel a difference. Someone else might feel a difference but i didnt. i did like the package though.
I was prescribed a higher dose of melatonin from my GP, but I wanted to try something natural, and at a lower dose, before embarking on pharmaceuticals to get to sleep. My anxiety has been a little more increased as of late, but these little guys actually helped me calm down to the point that it was fairly easy to crash and stay that way throughout the night. Would purchase if they were on sale.
I have always had trouble falling asleep at night so I am always looking for a natural aid to help with this. Not only did this product help me relax and get to sleep easier, I stayed asleep through the night.
