- A WAVE OF RELAXATION: L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea leaves, and is known to be one of nature’s natural relaxants: it directly stimulates the production of alpha waves in the brain, creating many desirable mental and physical soothing effects. Numerous studies have found that L-Theanine is able to cross the blood-brain barrier to encourage a state of relaxation without drowsiness and promote healthy mental clarity while being focused. Truly an ingredient for modern times, AlphaWave L-Theanine brings a soothing effect to an overcaffeinated, overworked world.
- The AlphaWave Difference: Since L-Theanine is found in tea leaves at a very low concentration, it is not practical to produce L-Theanine from Green Tea. However, the quality of L-Theanine supplements varies depending on the manufacturing process. AlphaWave L-Theanine is manufactured by a proprietary fermentation process in which it is derived from an amino acid, and is standardized to contain a minimum of 98% L-Theanine. This purified material is chemically identical to that found in green tea (Camelia sinensis), and is ideal for use in supplements.
- Profile Proven Quality Assurance: AlphaWave L-Theanine is manufactured with Profile Proven quality assurance. This quality control program was started by the manufacturer of AlphaWave L Theanine (Ethical Naturals ) due to the lack of proper ingredient screening by many ingredient manufacturers. Before AlphaWave L-Theanine is approved for encapsulation, the ingredient is stringently tested at Ethical Natural's NSF-111 Certified facility, with full chain of custody data.
From the manufacturer
What is L-Theanine?
L-Theanine, is an amino acid found in green tea leaves, and is one of nature’s most effective tools to combat stress. It directly enhances the production of alpha brain waves, supporting a state of relaxation. There are many studies that show the benefits of green tea (the most consumed beverage in the world). Many of these benefits can be traced to the unique properties of the neurologically active amino acid L-Theanine.*
The Science Behind L-Theanine
L-Theanine creates a sense of relaxation via at least two different mechanisms. First, it directly stimulates the production of alpha brain waves, supporting a state relaxation and mental alertness similar to that achieved through meditation. Secondly, L-Theanine is involved in the formation of the inhibitory neurotransmitter, gamma amino butyric acid (GABA). GABA influences the levels of two other neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, which may also provide further assistance to achieve a state of relaxation without drowsiness.*
