Description

L-theanine Capsules

What is L-Theanine?

First discovered as a constituent of green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) in 1949. L-Theanine is a non-proteinogenic amino acids and is considered a nondietary amino acid, not unlike L-Ornithine or L-Citrulline. L-Theanine is primarily known for its ability to promote relaxation without causing sleep and is often paired with Caffeine. It is thought that L-Theanine helps balance the negative effects of Caffeine that some people experience. Together, L-theanine and Caffeine are considered one of the most commonly used and popular nootropic stack options that may promote faster reaction time, numeric working memory reaction time and improved sentence verification accuracy.

L-Theanine Benefits and Uses

L-Theanine benefits and uses may include:

  • Promotes relaxation*
  • Support healthy sleep cycles*
  • Support healthy stress levels*
  • Promote feelings of well-being*
  • Support cognitive function and focus*
  • Synergistic effects with Caffeine*

L-Theanine Studies

L-Theanine may have positive mood-boosting effects as scientists have discovered that it changes levels of amino acids affecting serotonin and other neurotransmitters in the brain. L-Theanine may also help suppress glucocorticoids. Glucocorticoids are stress hormones that can have a negative effect on mood, memory and learning. L-Theanine may act as a glutamate antagonist and, in turn, balance the harmful effects of high glucocorticoid levels. This also suggests that L-Theanine may be neuroprotective as well. 

Additionally, L-Theanine may promote better sleep. One Japanese human study where participants were given a daily L-Theanine supplement concluded that L-Theanine did not induce sleep or make them sleep longer - but rather that it improved sleep quality. Documented participant responses claimed that exhaustion recovery and feelings of being refreshed were enhanced by L-Theanine.

L-Theanine supplementation has been studied for its potential ability to reduce mental and physical stress, improve cognition, and boost mood and cognitive performance. It is also reported to promote alpha wave production in the brain. One study conducted by Unilever was able to confirm that even small amounts of L-Theanine were able to promote alpha wave production as indicated on an EEG (Electroencephalography). 

L-Theanine Dosage

As a dietary supplement, take one 200mg L-Theanine capsule daily.

L-Theanine may be synergistic with Green Tea Extract

    Very satisfied!

    The package arrived very fast, despite I live more than half way across the world (North Macedonia in the Balkans). The package was discrete and securely wrapped. The reason why I ordered L-Theanine was to deal with stress and panic-like symptoms. I have struggled with panic issues for a while, and apart from avoiding triggers, nothing really works. That being said, I cannot evaluate the effectiveness of L-theanine, because it is hard to tell whether it works - I certainly feel better. I feel that the supplement works because the past two months have been a bit more hectic than usual, and yet the baseline stress level is either the same or even slightly reduced. I didn't changed anything apart from introducing this supplement. What I also did notice is vivid dreams. From the first day I started taking it, I have several dreams per night. I fall asleep easy, and there is no side-effect to speak of. I take my capsule in the morning, half an hour to an hour after breakfast. I've tried to take two at once, but didn't feel any noticeable difference. No drowsiness at all though. Mental acuity is perhaps sharper, but that might be for the reason my stress is slightly lifted . I've noticed is these glimpses of happiness - I'm generally a satisfied person, who experiences positive emotions, but due to frequent stress and a racing mind, I kinda forgot what it's like to feel complete chill and detachment, and to rest in happiness irrespective of the setting and the circumstances. Interestingly enough, I started to feel such experiences after a month of taking this supplement as well. Will definitely buy more.

    Quite effective

    This has been very effective in having a calming effect coupled with a mild cognitive boost. This is now part of my core regimen.

    Caffeine killer

    I take one pill every evening an hour before bed. When I have coffee in the morning, I no longer get the rush and energy that I used to. Now it's just pent up energy that's hard to release. It might have improved my sleep a bit though.

    L-Theanine

    It most certainly has an effect when I take it. I take one pill about an hour before going to bed. Not sure if it improves my sleep quality - maybe. What I have noticed, however, is that my morning coffee doesn't hit like it used to - I used to have a rush that lasted for about 30min when I had coffee after some time not drinking it. Now I feel like I have this barely perceptional energy locked within me and I have trouble letting it out and it makes me want to scream - in a good way but I'd rather have the previous effect back. So, I suppose, it definitely has an effect on caffeine even if I take it the previous evening before bed, it still remains in my body to do what it does with caffeine the next morning.

    Too high dose

    Why are the caps only available in 200mg when on your loose powder it recommends 100mg twice a day? I want to try take this together with Melatonin for sleep but it's too much for me

    Really does work to fight stress

    This is the only supplement I've taken that I feel sure helps, which is funny, because it is subtle. When I started taking it, I was stressed from work, and it made me feel like I could take on the stressors of the day without getting overwhelmed. I take it every morning with caffeine.

    Helps control my caffeine jitters

    L-theanine was the first "nootropic" I discovered back in 2016. Caffeine had always been problematic for me. A single cup of coffee would give me anxiety and jitters for the rest of the day. Turns out I've got a few genetic markers indicating that my body doesn't handle caffeine super well (gs157, rs762551, rs4822492). While l-theanine doesn't completely rid me of those issues, it makes caffeine consumption MUCH more tolerable for me. I've recommended l-theanine (and only the ND brand) to anyone who tells me caffeine gives them anxiety. And those that try it are amazed that it provides a noticeable reduction in negative effects after caffeine consumption. L-theanine is my first love and something I've relied on over the last 6 years whenever I want to have a cup of coffee. Can't recommend it enough. I also take l-theanine before bed as a sleep aid from time to time, and it helps there as well.

    Good stuff!

    I bought these to take in a stack with caffeine and aniracetem among others and even after the first or second time taking it I could tell that it very efficiently took the edge off of the jitteriness that caffeine causes! It also made my heart rate feel less off the charts and slowed down a lot compared to drinking caffeine on its own.

    Gentle Sleep and Relaxation

    I find this to be an extremely effective and gentle solution to fall asleep and wake restfully! Not only is it an economical solution, but I know it's just strong enough to take even if I can't commit to a whole 8 hours of sleep!
