L-Theanine is 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 its L-Theanine content.
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. This amino acid appears 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 and other concerns.
