L-Theanine, 100 mg, 60 vegetarian capsules
Notice Regarding Theanine
Life Extension sells the purest, highest quality theanine available. Our theanine is the same product used in published studies - in the form known as "L-theanine".
We have become aware of products entering the market labelled "L-theanine" that contain only HALF L-theanine. The other half is a different form of theanine known as "D-theanine". D-theanine has not been scientifically evaluated in published studies, and we DO NOT RECOMMEND TAKING IT.About the Benefits of Theanine
Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that produces tranquilizing effects in the brain. In Japan, soft drinks and chewing gum are spiked with theanine for the purpose of inducing relaxation. Although theanine creates a feeling of relaxation, it doesn't shut down the brain.
Studies on rodents show that theanine enhances the ability to learn and remember. By shutting off worry central, theanine appears to increase concentration and focus thought.
Theanine is different from kava-kava in that it doesn't cause drowsiness, just relaxation. Theanine increases GABA, while caffeine decreases it. GABA doesn't just relax, it also creates a sense of well-being.
Theanine's ability to increase this brain chemical can literally put you in a better mood. Theanine also increases levels of dopamine, another brain chemical with mood-enhancing effects.Protecting Neurons
In studies on neurons in cell culture, theanine significantly reverses glutamate-induced toxicity. In vivo studies show the same effect in rodents. Glutamate-induced neuro-toxicity is a major cause of degenerative brain disease.
Many Americans suffer from slightly elevated blood pressure, but don't know they have it. Chronic high blood pressure inflicts damage on the delicate cerebral vascular network and increases the risk of stroke. Theanine has been shown to help lower blood pressure.
Theanine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and changes brain chemistry in a way that has been compared to aromatherapy. Studies show that theanine is a non-toxic, highly desirable mood modulator that can be enjoyed by everyone except babies.The Antidote to Modern Stress
The suggested dose of theanine to induce a state of relaxation is 100 mg. For those seeking a continuous mood elevating effect, we suggest that one theanine capsule be taken four times throughout the day.1 capsule contains:
