Solgar L-Theanine: L-theanine is a unique amino acid found exclusively in green tea and one type of mushroom that is growing in popularity as an alternative to the herb Kava Kava.
L-Theanine crosses the blood brain barrir and has been shown to increase brain alpha waves in less than 40 minutes. Alpha brain waves are an indication of a state of relaxation and mental alertness similar to that achieved through meditation, promoting a relaxed, yet alert state of mind without sedation. In addition the antioxidant properties of L-theanine are believed to support overall cardiovascular health and general well being.
Naturally found in Green Tea, L-Theanine is proven to soothe nervous tension and support mental calm and focus during times of stress. L-Theanine is quick acting, non-drowsy and is an effective and well tolerated way to soothe frazzled nerves and help ease a worried, anxious mind.
