In recent years, there has been increasing interest in a very special amino acid called L-Theanine. L-Theanine works wonders in the brain to relieve anxiety and offers other amazing benefits. In the past few years, some exciting properties of L-Theanine have been discovered by researchers. What Should You Know About L-Theanine? One of the most extraordinary benefits of L-Theanine is its ability to help your body manage stress. Did you know that stress is a leading cause of an assortment of health problems? Stress can greatly diminish your quality of life, both emotionally and physically. It can lead to high blood pressure,

Fueled by the need to improve their overall health and well-being, more than 65% of Americans take dietary supplements. Millions more suffer from stress, which, over time, results in many physical and emotional ailments. In order to lead a healthier lifestyle, the epidemic of stress and anxiety needs to be addressed.
That’s why Zen Theanine™ is a great formula for those who are looking to sleep better, improve their concentration, and feel more relaxed in general. Targeting neurotransmitters, Zen Theanine™ harnesses the power of L-theanine to help you achieve what is called “alert calmness.”
The amino acid L-theanine is not only a well-known dietary supplement, but also a food additive used in Japan to give foods and beverages a savory flavor. L-theanine supports alpha-wave brain activity, which is associated with the relaxed and peaceful alertness that is experienced during meditation.
L-theanine promotes mental focus along with a feeling of relaxation plus alertness because it has a chemical structure very similar to glutamate, an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body and helps transmit impulses in the brain. L-theanine rapidly enters the system when ingested (within roughly 40 minutes) and helps increase alpha brain wave activity, which is linked to a state of calm wakefulness.
Some of the effects of L-theanine appear to be similar those of glutamate, and it is believed to influence the levels of neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and GABA in the brain, in a way that positively affects mood, sleep, and learning capacity.
L-theanine appears to modulate the motor stimulation associated with caffeine as well as inhibit some of the actions of the stress hormone norepinephrine in the central nervous system.
Zen Theanine™ provides naturally sourced L-theanine in an optimal dose backed by clinical research. It offers an ideal option for those suffering from stress or feelings of anxiousness, especially when those feelings compromise the ability to work, study or sleep.
