Product Overview

NOW L-Theanine is an amino acid naturally found in green tea that promotes relaxation without the drowsiness or negative side effects associated with other calming agents. L-Theanine also supports healthy cardiovascular function through this relaxing effect as well as its antioxidant properties. L-theanine is a non-protein amino acid mainly found naturally in the green tea plant (Camellia sinensis). L-theanine is the predominant amino acid in green tea and makes up 50% of the total free amino acids in the plant. The amino acid constitutes between 1% and 2% of the dry weight of green tea leaves. L-theanine is considered the main component responsible for the taste of green tea, which in Japanese is called umami. L-theanine is marketed in Japan as a nutritional supplement for mood modulation.

I love this product. I have a high-powered career and I am a single mother of one very independent daughter. Needless to say, L-Theanine helps me keep stress down and my mood even. Definitely recommend.

I ordered this product to take with caffeine because studies have shown it reduces the jittery effects of caffine and it helps you focus more. So far so good!!

I use it in my bedtime coctail (15 to 20 minutes before bed). It adds an excellent relaxation to allow me to fall asleep in 5 minutes or less.

I take two a day with caffeine 90mg-300mg when I have issues focusing or when I dip into a bad mood. Caffeine and L-Theanine synergize making these more potent. I first discovered a L-Theanine buzz with a high quality loose leaf green tea. I love taking these when I get home from the gym and I'm coming down from my pre-workout buzz. Hop in a hot shower, crank some music, and it will pull you out of any mental ghetto. Will buy this again and again.

L-Theanine is an important part of my evening supplement cocktail. I used it in the past but stopped only due to the high price. I was buying it from a boutique-y shop. I was very happy to see that BodyBuilding.com had the NOW L-Theanine for a great price. I was even happier to find out that it worked the same for me as the higher-priced brand.

This stuff is great. It's like over-the-counter xanax, except that you don't "feel" it calm you down, you just notice that you're not anxious anymore. I take this before exams and before I go to bed. It relaxes you without necessarily making you sleepy. Plus, it's not addictive (like xanax can be). I highly recommend it!
