Dr Alex says:
"Zen Theanine contains L-theanine, an amino acid stated to have a calming effect - which may therefore be helpful for those who suffer from stress and anxiety, or who find it difficult to focus, relax, or fall asleep.
First discovered in 1949, L-theanine is a unique amino acid found in green tea which helps with nervousness and restlessness, supporting relaxation without causing drowsiness.
People who supplement with this amino acid report that it relaxes the brain, calms racing thoughts and creates feelings of “zen” while promoting alertness and concentration.
L-theanine is connected to the levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and GABA in the brain, which relate to mood balance, sleep and learning capacity.
AOR’s Zen Theanine contains L-theanine which rapidly enters the body when ingested (within roughly 30-40 minutes).
It is intended to provide an optimal dose of L-theanine to support mental relaxation, and help support calm against stress."
