Relaxing, calming & attention focus: these are some of the beneficial effects associated with the amino acid L-Theanine.

This non-dietary amino acid is found most commonly in certain teas such as Green Tea and has been shown to promote relaxation but without a sedating effect associated with similar substances that promote relaxation. Furthermore L-Theanine (even in standard doses) appears to have a stress reducing effect by altering our perceptions of stress.

The benefits of this amino acid seem to stretch far beyond the health & fitness industry due to a calming effect being a quality that has wide spread appeal.

Although on its own, certain mental acuity like benefits have been observed, where many people particularly in the fitness space are taking advantage of L-Theanine is using it alongside certain stimulants such as caffeine due to its synergistic effects by further amplifying cognition and attention yet taking the ‘edge’ off at the same time.

Although Green Tea does contain this amino acid, relativity high amounts need to be taken to get the potent dosage which is why supplementing directly is often recommended.

Other Potential Benefits:

– Increased levels of brain serotonin, dopamine and GABA
– Improvement of the immune system via boosting Gamma Delta T Cells

Dosage & Best Time Taken

100mg – 200mg is the most commonly taken dosage, with this often being taken (although not exclusively) with caffeine.

Taken during the day to boost mental performance and/or before a workout seems to be the best time to take for most users.
