L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that produces calming effects in the brain by increasing levels of serotonin and dopamine, and blocks the binding of L-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors. A "feel good" supplement, L-Theanine causes no adverse reactions. In fact, in Japan L-Theanine is added to soft drinks and chewing gum for the purpose of inducing relaxation.
The calming, mood-enhancing effect of L-Theanine is achieved by helping to increase alpha-brain waves, electrical brain activity commonly present when you are very relaxed, literally putting you in a better mood.
Just as meditation, massage, or aromatherapy quiets the mind and body, so too L-Theanine plays a role in inducing the same calm and feeling of well-being-without drowsiness. It is a non-toxic, highly desirable mood modulator.
Jo Mar's L-Theanine is 100% pure U.S.P. grade and is available is 100 milligram capsules. We have mixed the L-Theanine with pure rice powder (flour), an inert ingredient used in the encapsulation process.
