L-theanine is an essential amino acid that is beneficial in many processes yet is not abundant in our diets. Primarily found in tea leaves, this known nootropic, or cognitive enhancer, safely bolsters the brain in several ways. It increases alpha brain waves, which reduce anxiety and promote creativity and a calm mood. It is also associated with an elevation in levels of beneficial non-excitatory neurotransmitters, namely GABA, and other compounds, such as dopamine and seratonin, that facilitate smooth communication among brain cells. L-theanine also plays a role in immune regulation and aids in digestion.
All of L-theanine effects are known to be enhanced in the presence of caffeine, which makes this combo a NO BRAINER and the base from which all of our blends are built from. The combination of caffeine and L-theanine produce a low-stress, sustained, super focus that allows you to achieve maximum productivity, without the jitters and crash that you might experience with coffee alone.
We're not trying to bore you with a bunch of science, but since we're nerds, we'll provide you with links to published articles explaining the known effects of L-theanine on brain function (as well as many other physiological processes) and the synergistic effects when this amino acid is consumed with caffeine.
Here is a taste of what you will read, "caffeine and L-theanine are capable of modulating cerebral haemodynamics, cognitive performance, mood and autonomic measures."
