Amino acid from tea that supports a healthy stress response, relaxation, focus, and memory*
Theanine, found almost exclusively in the tea plant, helps modify brain waves by increasing alpha-wave production. It also enhances brain neurotransmitters involved in stress management.*
Benefits of theanine:
- Relaxation: Promotes relaxation, focus, and memory by enhancing alpha-wave production in the brain*
- Stress: Supports a healthy stress response*
- GABA: Enhances GABA production in the brain (a brain chemical that acts like a brake during times of runaway stress)*
L-theanine is a unique amino acid that is found almost exclusively in the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) and which has been used safely in Japan for decades.
L-theanine has been shown to positively modify brain waves and the key neurotransmitters involved in mood, focus, and memory.*
L-theanine enhances the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, and also appears to play a role in the formation of GABA – a neurotransmitter that acts like a "brake" during times of runaway stress.*
L-theanine also enhances brain alpha-wave activity, a marker of relaxation.* This effect has been observed to be most pronounced in individuals subjectively feeling the highest levels of stress.*
A Japanese study of university students found that 200 mg of L-theanine led to increased brain alpha-waves and a subjective sense of relaxation.* In the same study, L-theanine administration also caused a dose-dependent relaxed, yet alert, state of mind without sedation, beginning approximately 40 minutes after ingestion.*
L-theanine can enhance the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, and it appears to play a role in the formation of GABA – a neurotransmitter that acts like a "brake" during times of runaway stress.*
L-theanine helps establish balance in the neurotransmitter system, resulting in improvements in the mental/emotional and physical disturbances resulting from being overly stressed.*
