The effects of L-Theanine are clinically proven!

Have you ever wondered why the caffeine in tea does not make you jittery like your favorite coffee latte? The answer is L-Theanine. L-Theanine is an amino acid that is formed in the root of the tea bush and is transported into the leave. Young tea leaves show a higher L-Theanine content- calling all white tea lovers! It acts antagonistically against the stimulating effect of caffeine.

The clinically proven effects of L-Theanine:

 Provides strong relaxing properties by stimulating the production of alpha brain
 Reduces stress and anxiety
 Strengthens the immune system

During this season of stress and anxiety don't forget to drink your tea each day!
