L-Theanine : The powerful anxiety remedy they never told you about

264 million people around the world struggle with anxiety Which makes pharma companies billions of dollars per year on sedative prescriptions These drugs make you into a zombie And come with a laundry list of side effects like Dizziness Slurred Speech And even depression…

The truth is There are better options out there you should try before considering anxiety meds And L-Theanine is one of them

L-Theanine was discovered in 1949 by Japanese scientists They found it in the leaves of Camellia Sinensis Better known as Green Tea It’s a bioactive amino acid Which allows you to use it efficiently

Recent research shows that L-Theanine may be beneficial in a boatload health challenges: Insomnia Addiction Poor attention span Anxiety/Depression/PTSD Cognitive performance/Alzheimer's Just to name a few

Now You might be wondering: “What makes L-Theanine so great and why should I take it?” Let’s dive deeper…

The most simple way I can explain what L-Theanine feels like is Zen Focus Your mind is calm and relaxed But sharp and ready to go This makes L-Theanine a great choice for high performers or anyone just looking to get an edge

L-Theanine works its magic by acting on your glutamate system Glutamate is a neurotransmitter that is like the accelerator of your car It puts your brain into overdrive And is often the root cause of what you call “anxiety”

Thankfully Your brain has a way to slow things down through the action of GABA GABA is a neurotransmitter that acts as the brakes to slow you down The more you have The easier it is to relax

L-Theanine works to shut off the glutamate highway in your brain The less glutamate there is The more GABA can do its job in keeping you calm and focused So you get more shit done

The benefits of L-Theanine are numerous And may even surprise you a little Let’s dive deeper…

1) Reduces anxiety/Promotes relaxation L- Theanine stimulates alpha brain waves Which puts you into a very relaxed but focused state This makes it much easier to deal with stress or anxiety

2) Increased mental performance One study showed that L-Theanine improved attentiveness and reaction time Which is why it's very popular nootropic It helps calm down your nerves and puts you into a flow state to get more work done

3) Improves sleep L-Theanine’s relaxation benefits can be harnessed to help some of you sleep better at night One study that a combo of GABA and L-Theanine decreased sleep latency (how quickly you fall asleep) by 15% And increased sleep duration by 27% Who wouldn’t want that

4) Enhances the effects of coffee Lots of research has been done on caffeine and L-theanine Which mimics its natural form found in tea L-Theanine can knockout the jitteriness you get from coffee

Depending on your tolerance You should be supplementing at either a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio of L-theanine to caffeine PSA: If you're a generally anxious person, I'd stay away from the coffee even with the L-Theanine At least until you can get your stress in check

When it comes to getting L-Theanine Supplements are going to be the best bet as it's very hard to get enough just from tea alone Suntheanine is the patented premium form you can get on the market and touts stronger potency over other cheaper kinds

A good starter dose would be 200-300mg for cognitive/anxiety benefits 600+ mg would be better for sleep
