Spotlight: L-theanine

What is L-theanine?

L-Theanine is an amino acid found naturally in green tea. Studies suggest that L-theanine increases levels of the brain neurotransmitters, serotonin, dopamine and GABA, resulting in a relaxant effect.

Key benefits

L-theanine significantly increases activity in the alpha frequency band which indicates that it relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness, aiding in the maintenance of  long term optimal nervous system health.

Why we love it

We chose to use L-theanine in our PEACE formula as it helps promote tranquility and relaxation without the caffeine stimulation that can result from drinking tea.
