L-Theanine capsules - as calming as meditation
Green tea often contains more caffeine than coffee, but has however not its stimulating effect. On the contrary - it calms down and promotes attention and concentration.
It's secret is L-Theanine, an amino acid contained in green tea. It was found that people, who take L-Theanine, have higher alpha waves activity in the brain.
This prevails only if someone is in a calm, fearless, concentrated, not stressed state. L-Theanine is as calming and relaxing as a good meditation.
Studies on test subjects have shown that L-theanine provides relaxation through at least two different mechanisms around 30 minutes after ingestion.
First, as mentioned, this natural amino acid stimulates alpha waves in the brain, creating a state of deep relaxation, concentration, and alertness that is equivalent to meditation.
Second, L-theanine is involved in the formation of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) neurotransmitter. GABA influences the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, which additionally promote the relaxing effect.
This is how L-theanine lifts your mood, reduces stress and increases concentration.
Green tea contains only 1-2 percent L-theanine. It is simply not possible to drink enough green tea daily to take advantage of all the benefits of L-theanine.
You would need to drink at least 10 cups to achieve the same effect as with just one L-theanine capsule. 10 cups of green tea also contain a large amount of caffeine. However, this counteracts the relaxing effects of L-theanine and partially abolishes its effects.
In the day-to-day life we are exposed to many stress factors, which are strengthened by lack of nutrient, lack of sleep and similar. This may over time lead to physical and psychological problems.
