What is L-theanine and why do we need it?
In creating our range of drinks we wanted to provide you with as much naturally beneficial ingredients as possible.
L-theanine is a special protein commonly found in green tea. It is one of the reasons why green tea is beneficial to your health.
Our Energy and Electrolyte drinks contain the same amount of L-Theanine as you will find in a cup of Matcha tea.
This amino acid helps with stress and anxiety, improves concentration and focus, and promotes deeper sleep. It does this by stimulating production of alpha brain waves creating a state of deep relaxation and mental alertness such as is often achieved via meditation.
L-theanine is a non-dietary amino acid, which means it won't be stored as fat by your body. It also stimulates dopamine release, as well as serotonin production and has been known to regulate blood pressure and improve cardiovascular function.
