Product Overview

Description

  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

L-theanine is a unique amino acid present almost exclusively in the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) and used safely in Japan for decades. L-theanine has demonstrated the potential to positively modify brain waves and key neurotransmitters involved in mood, focus, and memory. Consumption of L-theanine enhances brain alpha-wave activity, a sign of relaxation. The intensity of brain alpha-wave activity increases within 30-45 minutes of L-theanine supplementation, promoting relaxation, mental focus, and acuity.

This effect is most pronounced in persons subjectively feeling the highest levels of distress. A small Japanese study of university students showed 200 mg oral L-theanine led to increased brain alpha-waves and a subjective sense of relaxation. Theanine administration caused a dose-dependent relaxed, yet alert, state of mind without sedation, beginning approximately 40 minutes after oral dosing. L-theanine can enhance the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin and appears to play a role in the formation of GABA – a neurotransmitter that acts like a "brake" during times of runaway stress. Theanine helps establish balance in the neurotransmitter system, resulting in improvements in the mental/emotional and physical disturbances resulting from being overly stressed.

Makes me sleepy

Posted by Reviewer2624333 on Jan 29, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I take 2 at bedtime, because it makes me sleepy. I have tried the Thorne PharmaGaba, but it had no effect, even at 4 capsules a night. L-Theanine is not suppose to make people sleepy, and PharmaGaba IS supposed to make people sleepy. In my case I find the opposite to be true. I don't know why. Both are suppose to relax us. This helps me go to sleep, and stay asleep, so be aware of that if this is not the effect you want.

overpriced

Posted by Reviewer2842229 on Apr 21, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Theanine is great for getting a good nights sleep.Natural and non-toxic extract from green tea. This product is Suntheanine brand which is the standard that most manufacturers use. I don't know why it should be priced so much higher than many of the other reputable brands using the same ingredient.
