L-theanine is an amino acid that is beneficial in many processes yet is not abundant in our diets. A known nootropic, or a cognitive enhancer, L-theanine 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. Theanine has many known benefits that include improved immune response, digestion, sleep cycle regulation, and more.
All of the effects of L-theanine 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.
