Alex in our Muswell Hill Store loves to recommend Solgar L-Theanine.
She says: ”It is a single amino acid which helps regulate brain function, increase GABA levels, and support alpha waves, to create a focused, clear state of mind. I think it is helpful in any stressful situation, perfect for intense studying as it is non drowsy.”
The properties of L-Theanine can be summed up as being a relaxing agent without sedation and is also said to reducing the perception of stress while slightly improving attention. While it does not appear to induce sleep, it may help with sleep as it helps with GABA, the body’s main calming neurotransmitter in the brain.
Solgar uses a Free Form, patented L-Theanine – Suntheanine® to promote optimal absorption and they suggest taking 150mg per day or as recommended by your health care practitioner.
