What is L-Theanine?
L-theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is found within green tea, and other teas as well for that matter, just in slightly smaller dosages. The amino acid is non-essential, so the body can synthesize it naturally, albeit in much smaller dosages than those that have been shown to be beneficial. This amino acid has antioxidant-like properties, making it very beneficial for people looking to actively improve their health and well-being. Once consumed, it has been found to cause a whole host of changes in an individual’s body chemistry, helping them to relax, to rejuvenate, and much more besides.
How does it work?
Once consumed, L-theanine has the ability to quickly pass the blood-brain barrier, allowing it to very quickly make its way into the brain, where it can then work its magic. The amino acid provides a number of different benefits, and for that reason, it has been found to work in a number of different ways. In terms of stress for example, the amino acid has proved especially beneficial for a number of reasons. Once consumed, L-theanine has been found to gradually slow down the heart rate, as well as to reduce salivary responses to stressful stimuli in people of all ages and genders. The amino acid helps to promote the formation of alpha brainwaves, which serve as a clear indicator of a person being relaxed and calm. Not only that, but as it has antioxidant-like properties, it has also been found to help strengthen the immune system, and to help rid the body of toxins and harmful free-radicals in the process.
What are the benefits of using L-Theanine Supplements?
Some of the primary benefits associated with using L-theanine supplements include:
As previously mentioned, once consumed, l-theanine can quickly cross the blood-brain barrier where it can enhance the production of alpha brainwaves, as well as slowing a person’s heart rate down, and helping them to relax in stressful situations. This is also beneficial as it can help to promote a good night’s sleep as well.
As this amino acid is packed full of so many natural healing properties, it has been found time and time again, to be very beneficial for people looking to strengthen their immune systems. L-theanine boosts immunity, it provides resistance to illness and disease, and it provides anti-bacterial and microbial benefits as well.
For people who are constantly feeling tired and worn down, this could be a sign of adrenal fatigue, which is a medical condition which can lead to other more serious conditions. Studies however, have found that L-theanine supplementation could help to counteract the effects of adrenal fatigue, and it could help to prevent it altogether. This means that it can help people to feel more alert and invigorated, and it can help them to avoid suffering from more serious health conditions.
