Helps with Anxiety
Posted by Reviewer1221476 on May 29, 2006
I find this theanine product to be effective aginst light anxiety. I take it in the morning when I first wake up if I am feeling nervous about something.
Nice way to maintain mental calm

Theanine works well to make me feel much calmer and more content. The effects of theanine on brain chemistry are well-documented. Rather than being a quick-acting sedative like Xanax or Ativan, the effect is more wholistic. Theanine can be used by your brain to naturally create the neurotransmitters that make you more content. The effects take a while to manifest and are subtle. You just notice that you have felt relaxed and content since taking it, but no sedation, euphoria, or rush after taking one. Of course, I also take other steps to avoid stress. Theanine makes it easier to be calmer and more content, but it can't make a difficult life tolerable.

I like Theanine as a very good "calm-down" product but was annoyed that it was becoming more difficult to find a 100mg strength, as most makes are now 200mg. Thanks to wonderful iherb that problem is now solved and I'm very happy.

Used International AirMail. Shipped to the Netherlands in 11 days. Payed no extra import taxes. Taking this with coffee it reduces the stress effect of caffeine.
Try it in a job interview

Great for job interviews! calms the nerves without blunting reaction time or cognitive function. Not sure if you need to take it everyday, perhaps if you suffer from anxiety.
Change in life perspective

Recommended to me by my nutritionist. I take these in combination with 5-HTP and SAM-e 200. I was suffering from low moods and depression, as well as decreased focus and attention. Taking these tablets has changed my life. My mood is now consistent and good, I have focus, I'm able to think "clearer," and feel mentally better than I have in years. Did much more for me than a lot of therapy ; ) I was prescribed anti-depressants at one point. So glad I resisted. One round of visits to a nutritionist and all better, naturally and healthily!

I heve used a few bottles, during day gives a gentle soothing, in the way you get less agitated , less sensible to external stressors. At night helps a little bit with sleep

This is an effective product, particularly on an empty stomach. The effect has diminished in intensity for me over time. I take it when I am feeling anxious, or when I've had slightly too much caffeine. It works the same way each time, unlike another L-theanine product I tried, which was more variable. I'm not sure of the long-term effects of Suntheanine use, so it is probably good to have breaks from it. Real l-theanine in tea is the ideal, but it is accompanied by caffeine, and it is far more convenient to take a capsule than make tea.
I think this is a good product.

It is so hard to tell sometimes with some supplements, however this has been part of a new regimen for my stressful life and I feel it is working.

After about a week of jitters, this is now working very well to calm and stabilize my moods. Highly recommend.
