Product Description

L-Theanine  

Promotes Relaxation and Reduces Stress 

L-theanine is an amino acid that helps promote a restful, relaxed state without diminishing daytime alertness. It’s free of the side effects commonly associated with other relaxing agents and can be used to aid in stress management.

L-theanine by Integrative Therapeutics contains a highly standardized brand of L-Theanine (Suntheanine brand), providing a consistent, quality product.

One capsule of Integrative Therapeutics L-Theanine contains a modest dose of 100 mg of L-Theanine. It’s great starting with a low dose as you can double the dose according to your body’s needs. And it’s affordably priced.

(To give you some perspective, it’s reported that  a 7 ounce cup of black tea contains  18mg – 30mg of L-Theanine and green tea typically produces 6mg – 12mg of L-Theanine. Obviously the tea leaves and length of brewing time affect the amount of L-Theanine.)

Here’s an article from Medical News Today about Health benefits of L-theanine.


What is L-Theonine?

L-theanine is an amino acid that is found in the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). It’s a relaxing amino acid yet does not reduce alertness during the day.  L-theanine has been found to promote more alpha brain waves, a type of brain wave produced when you’re relatively calm, relaxed and not overly focused.

L-theanine can enhance the production of several neurotransmitters. It plays role in the formation of GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid), a neurotransmitter that helps us modulate and handle stress.  L-theanine has been used in Japan for many years.

L-theanine is a helpful adjunct for both stress management during the day and for getting settled in for sleep. L-theonine supports a relaxed, yet alert, state of mind without sedation.

L-theanine has long thought to interact with the binding of L-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors in the brain.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule two or three times daily. If additional support is desired, increase to 2 capsules three times daily, or as recommended by your healthcare professional.

If taking antidepressants or other psychotropic medications, use only under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner. Although we are not aware of any interactions, because these also affect brain function there is theoretical potential for negative or positive interactions, either of which would need to be monitored. Keep in a cool, dry place, tightly capped.

My Experience

I like this product because it’s a low dose and one capsule is just enough to help me relax before bedtime. Sometimes I take one L-theanine about an hour before bedtime. In addition to helping me relax and fall asleep, I am able to stay asleep longer without waking up during the night. I am not groggy at all in the morning, when I wake up.
