Like a Relaxing Cup of Tea
Theanine is an uncommon and unique amino acid that is primarily found in green tea. Theanine is associated with supporting the healthy function of the mind and balancing mood. It has anti-stress properties and has been found to relax people without creating drowsiness and without the agitation associated with caffeine.
Optimal Mental Activity Theanine helps to support alpha-wave brain activity, which is associated with the relaxed and peaceful alertness that is experienced during meditation. Part of its function is based on its ability to influence the levels of brain signaling molecules. In particular, theanine increases the metabolism of dopamine and serotonin, which are associated with mood and mental function. In animals, theanine has been found to improve learning ability and memory, to decrease blood pressure and to protect nerves from cell death.
To Achieve Zen Theanine is one of the primary components of tea that gives it its relaxing and healthful properties. AOR's Zen Theanine provides an optimal dose of this remarkable amino acid.
