L-Theanine of Now Foods is the amino-acid theanine naturally found in green tea. It has a similar molecular structure to the amino-acid tryptophan, the precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin. The associated properties provide a state of relaxation without lethargy symptoms that can be experienced by relaxing and calming products. Reduces stress and relaxes the brain by increasing the activity of alpha waves. Such waves take place when we are in a state of both alert and relaxation.
