What is L-Theanine and how does it work?
L-Theanine is a natural occurring amino acid found in the leaves of green tea (Camellia sinensis). It plays two important roles in our body. First, it gets absorbed through the small intestine, after that it is transported directly to the brain where it then stimulates the production of alpha brain waves. Our brain can transmit four different types of waves depending on the frequency: alpha, beta, gamma and theta. Alpha waves signify an awake and relaxed state whereas the beta waves show up during an awake and excited state. On the other hand, gamma waves are present during deep sleep and theta waves indicate light sleep. Second, studies suggest that L-Theanine plays a role in the production of GABA (gamma amino butyric acid), a neurotransmitter that aids in relaxation and increases memory.
