Helps with sleep
Posted by Reviewer2878677 on Feb 15, 2012
Good product recommended by my doctor. Thank you for carrying it. Natural alternative to sleep medications.

Interesting product. Helps reduce anxiety ~ definitely!!! Calming... I sometimes take one capsule in the morning, and 2 capsules in the evening. There are times I will skip the morning dose - not feeling the need to take it. Kavinace also assists with sleep. I tend to be a problem child in regards to sleep issues. Haven't slept well since I was born ~ sleeping during the day - awake all night. Decades of issues with sleep - I'm 55 now. Taking Kavinace, I'm able able to return to sleep after awaking in the middle of the night. Have been able to sleep for close to 7 hours without feeling groggy in the morning. With the product, I am able to sleep well for a few nights, then have a night or two of my usual issues. Then, once again, I'll sleep well again for a series of nights. I like Kavinace and will continue to use it, at least until I find something else that can help w/anxiety and sleep without adverse side effects.

I first purchased this through my naturopath when I was having mild anxiety attacks. It works in "taking the edge" off and also works as a sleep aid. I suggest seeing a medical professional vs. self medicating, but this is a great product when you don't need a full blown anti-anxiety prescription. For us "type A'ers" it will relax you and slow down that fast speech and high energy. Be cautious in using it while working since you may get drowsy.
Good in combination

These work well in combination with other sleep support nutrients and herbs (passionflower, theanine, GABA, 5HTP, etc). I don't find they are enough on their own but all in all, they are a good product. Perhaps a little expensive.
Not Calming, but Does Help Sleep

I was hoping this might help me weather occasional moments of stress a little better. It didn't seem to make a difference there for me (might be different for others - lack of GABA may just not be my issue there). However, it did make me really sleepy. For the rest of the bottle, I'm just taking one before bed instead.
Seems to work OK

I seem to notices some feelings where I was numb not sure if its from the GABA or now, my DR said this is the type you wants Pharma Grade.

This helps me relax before I go to bed at night and I need less of me sleeping pill.
Doesn't work (for me) for insomnia
Posted by Reviewer3163705 on Jun 19, 2016
This came highly recommended by my friend who has the same insomnia issues I do. She swears by it. So even though it was $44, I purchased it. I have sleep maintenance insomnia that hits like a mac truck during the week before/of my period. And when I wake up after 4 hrs of sleep, even after taking this, and melatonin, I do not fall back asleep. So in essence this was completely ineffective for me. Money wasted. Don't get me wrong. Price is what you pay; value is what you get...if this would've worked for me, I would've happily continued buying this, regardless of the price. Back to the drawing board. ps- during these women times, nothing helps me go back to sleep: melatontin, calm magnesium powder, valerian root, doing meditation etc. Nothing. If anyone has anything that has worked for them, please let me know!
Didn't work for me.

I read that this product only works if you are low in the GABA neurotransmitter. I was so hopeful that it would. Sadly it only made the depression and anxiety worse and offered no sleepiness at all which I need for insomnia. I probably should have had my neurotransmitters tested first. I only took one pill to discover this. The Kavinace Ultra PM worked great for sleepiness but I reacted poorly to the 5HTP. I wish I could find a happy medium from this great company.
