L-Theanine (5-N-ethylglutamine) is a unique free-form amino acid found in green tea. L-Theanine is the predominant amino acid in green tea and makes up 50% of the total free amino acids in the plant. L-Theanine is a relaxant that increases alpha-waves producing mental and physical relaxation decreasing stress and anxiety, without inducing drowsiness. L-Theanine is a building block for gamma amino butyric acid (GABA). GABA blocks the release of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, playing a key role in the relaxation effect.
In addition to its relaxing, calming and focusing qualities, L-Theanine may also help with the following:
- Increases dopamine levels improving concentration & learning ability.
- Eases the side effects of too much caffeine.
- Controlling hypertension by lowering blood pressure.
- Diminishing symptoms of PMS.
- Supports the Immune System by lowering cortisol levels.
L-Theanine is a "feel good" supplement that causes no adverse reactions. It won't make you drowsy or groggy. L-Theanine is considered to be safe based on its historical use as a part of tea. A heavy green tea drinker (6-8 cups a day) will consume between 200 to 400 mgs of L-Theanine daily.
One 200mg capsule of L-Theanine, or as needed depending on stress and anxiety levels, is the recommended dosage. L-Theanine can be taken with food or on an empty stomach. Some people open the capsule and add to their coffee or green tea. L-Theanine is neutral in taste and tends to take the bitterness out of coffee or green tea. L-Theanine may enhance the anti-tumor effects of some chemotherapy drugs. Use of L-Theanine with chemotherapy agents must be done under strict medical supervision.
