Relaxation—without the zzz’s. The properties of L-theanine can best be summed up as a relaxing agent without sedation.
L-theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid analogue of glutamate that helps to promote relaxation without adding any components that promote drowsiness. As a result, L-theanine supplementation can help to “take the edge off” of stimulant supplements like caffeine for a more balanced effect. It can also help people fall asleep quicker and easier not by acting as a sedative but by lowering anxiety and promoting relaxation.
L-theanine has also been used to help improve mental focus, learning and concentration. (Less stress means there are lower cortisol and corticosterone in the body, which affects our cognitive functions.)
Due to its calming effects, L-theanine lowers heart rate and blood pressure. It’s also good for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as well as those who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder.
L-theanine can help maintain a healthy body weight by serving as an anti-anxiety agent and promoting better sleep. These factors aid in helping adhere to diet and weight loss plans.
