Solgar L-Theanine 150mg vegetable capsules provide an amino acid found almost exclusively in green tea and is now growing in popularity as an alternative to Kava Kava. Green tea is the second most popular drink in the world (after water) and has long been known as a relaxing beverage. Scientists now believe that both its taste and relaxing properties are attributable to this amino acid called L-theanine.
L-Theanine easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and appears to increase levels of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, as well as influencing serotonin and dopamine levels.
L-Theanine capsules & supplements appear to stimulate the production of alpha brain waves creating a sense of deep relaxation and mental alertness without sedation. The mood stabilising properties of L-Theanine may be helpful with pre-menstrual syndrome, low mood and general anxiety.
Dosage: Take One (1) Solgar L-theanine vegetable capsule twice daily, between meals.
FREE OF: Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Soy, Yeast, Preservatives, Sweeteners, Artificial Flavours or Colours.
