AOR Europe L-THEANINE 60 Caps (225mg)
L-Theanine is a rare free form amino acid which, with apparently only one exception, is found only in certain species of tea plants. It constitutes between 1 and 2% of the dry weight of tea leaves and accounts for approximately one half of all the free amino acids present in the leaves. First discovered in 1949, L-Theanine not only is an important beneficial constituent of tea, but also is the major flavour component of green tea. Researchers have often wondered why it is that tea, despite its caffeine content, has relaxing properties yet does not make people drowsy. Similarly, those engaging in meditation may drink tea to remain alert and yet not become mentally agitated, as is typical with the consumption of too much coffee. L-Theanine appears to be the component in green tea which is responsible for these particular benefits. This formulation is made enzymatically from amino acids and is identical to the L-Theanine found in green tea.
