Relieved mental fog and mental fatigue, but caused GI symptoms for me
Posted by Reviewer2361205 on Nov 27, 2011
I have MCS and brain fog and mental fatigue every day. This is one of the few supplements I've noticed a huge benefit from very quickly, especially the 2nd and 3rd days it gave me a lot of mental energy and clarity, but unfortunately I started getting the apparently uncommon GI side effects from it after a few days and had to stop taking it. Some people said they've built up a tolerance to theanine and it stopped working so maybe cycling it 3 days on and 3 days off could prevent this.

Theanine really helps me stay focused if I'm working and relaxed. I also take one before bed for to ease me asleep if I'm feeling stressed. Really intrigued by this supplement. 5 stars! iherb is great too. This was my first purchase from them and I plan to shop here again.

Works pretty well. I take 2 caps 1 hour before my lectures. It calms me down and helps concentration.

Took 1-2 capsules at night before bed to help with sleep, seemed to work quite well in conjuction with Melissa leaves (capules) and GABA.
Adrenal Exhaustion & ADHD
Posted by Reviewer2314092 on Mar 02, 2011
I've been using L-Theanine for a while. I find it useful in dealing with the symptoms of adrenal depletion. Within a short while of taking it I feel calm, centred and focused. At night it helps me sleep better. My husband takes it for ADHD and is more focused and motivated since taking it. I love and trust Now Foods and this particular product has been a great find as it's 50mg stronger per capsule than my old brand at less than half the cost. Can't beat that!
Great for relaxing muscles!

If you have trouble sleeping due to muscle tension, this L-Theanine is great!

It calms my day and keeps me focused
Takes the edge off...
Posted by Reviewer2344812 on Mar 26, 2011
I take one of these capsules at night with an Irwin Naturals Power to Sleep PM capsule (or a Young Living SleepEssence capsule) and they help me to sleep. The L-Theanine helps me to relax, while the other helps me become tired and fall asleep. I am usually sound asleep within a half hour of taking this combination. I have not tried the L-Theanine during the day, but as it just takes the edge off and helps you to relax while not making you sleepy, I imagine that it would work well to calm anxiety.
A huge success

i could write a whole book about this product. I agree with someone who described it as a miracle. Its been years now that I take it. Not continuously, though. The best moment for me is to take it just before I start sleeping. In the daytime, if I need to relax, I take Gaba or 5.htp. But nothing matches L-Theanine. The effect is subtil, and so encouraging.
