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 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. L-theanine also plays a role in immune regulation and aids in digestion. Read more about it on our Coffee and Chemistry Blog.
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.
