The L-Theanine found in this product is SunTheanine®, a pure form of L-Theanine. Unlike other stress reducing and calming supplements, Suntheanine® doesn't cause drowsiness.
Theanine is an amino acid that has shown to increase serotonin levels in the brain. These brain chemicals are commonly known as ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters, and as such, they may help boost mood, decrease anxiety, and promote relaxation. L-Theanine may also support brain health by helping to improve focus and attention and boosting cognition.
Theanine is derived from herbal green tea and may have calming and mood-promoting effects that may effectively lower mental and physical stress, and may also help with sleep disturbances. It may enhance the activity of an enzyme that breaks down beta-amyloid protein - which has been associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Theanine helps sustain healthy blood pressure levels that are already within normal levels.
As with most amino acid supplements, your body generally needs vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) as a cofactor to help ensure correct amino acid metabolism.
As a dietary supplement, adults take one tablet, one to three times daily between meals or as directed by a health professional.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose.
