What is L-Theanine? Theanine is a non-protein amino acid orginally isolated from green tea that appears to cross the blood-brain barrier and may help to support a feeling of calmness and relaxation by enhancing alpha-brain wave activity.
What are Alpha Brain waves? The brain produces beta, gamma, theta and alpha brain waves that are responsible for various alert to relaxed states. Beta waves occur when the brain is awake and excited, as when dealing with stress. Theta waves are produced when dozing or sleeping lightly. Gamma waves are producted in deep sleep. Alpha waves are most active when the body is in a wakeful but relaxed state. Alpha brain waves may also help promote a feeling of well being by enhancing the activity of various neurotransmitters.
Why a 200mg Dose? Research suggests that 200mg may yield the best results.
