L-Theanine (SunTheanine®) Amino Acid
Mood-promoting effects that may effectively lower mental and physical stress
L-Theanine - An Amino Acid that promotes a calm and relaxed effect, supports positive mood, and improves mental focus and attention
The L-Theanine found in this product is from SunTheanine®, the only 100% pure form of L-Theanine, that has been proven to be safe and efficacious.
Theanine is an amino acid that has shown to increase serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain. These brain chemicals are commonly known as ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters, and as such, they help to boost mood, decrease anxiety, and promote relaxation but without any drowsiness. L-Theanine also supports brain health by improving focus and attention and boosting cognition.
Theanine is an amino acid derived from herbal green tea and has calming and mood-promoting effects that can effectively lower mental and physical stress, and may also help with sleep disturbances. It has been seen to enhance the activity of an enzyme that breaks down beta-amyloid protein - which has been associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Theanine may also help to lower blood pressure.
As with most amino acid supplements, your body generally needs vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) as a cofactor to ensure correct amino acid metabolism.
L-Theanine 100mg – From SunTheanine®, is a 100% pure, patented source of L-Theanine.
SunTheanine® is the only pure L-theanine which has 40 internationally recognised patents, and which has been scientifically proven in clinical studies to be safe and efficacious.
Independent laboratory analysis confirms that various other products on the marketplace, claiming to contain L-theanine, are, instead, half L-theanine and half D-theanine (the mirror image of L-theanine), which has not been scientifically evaluated in published studies.
- Most amino acids come in two forms; D- or L- (such as L-tyrosine or D -tyrosine). The D-amino acid is a mirror image of the L- amino acid - in other words the D- form is a backward image.
- Both can be taken. However, the L-form is preferable as it is the exact image of the amino acid in its natural form found in the body. The L- form is considered the more effective for overall human health.
