Theanine is an amino acid shown to be the constituent responsible for the calming properties of green tea.* Theanine can cross the blood-brain barrier and enhances healthy alpha brain-wave activity, which is associated with a relaxed, but alert state.* At the same time, theanine helps to support the health of brain cells exposed to typical stimulation from excitatory neurotransmitters and promotes normal dopamine and GABA release.* Clinical studies have shown that theanine can support relaxation without drowsiness and promote healthy cognitive function.*
Take 1 capsule 1 to 2 times daily as needed, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
