I discovered L-Theanine from the health food store two years ago and bought it to improve my sleep quality (I have the occasional insomnia) but after trying it, I discovered it was great for my day-to-day anxiety as well.

L-Theanine is a natural amino acid not found in the human body. It comes from green or black tea and is quickly absorbed in the blood steam to reach the brain.

It does not sedate or have any side-effects that I have noticed. I take 225 mg with my coffee in the morning and keep on taking throughout the day when I feel anxious or agitated or have unwanted thoughts.

After taking it for a year, I tried reducing the amount and noticed I was suffering from insomnia on the days I did not take it. So I restarted it. There are not recorded side-effects or long-term effects of this natural supplement.

I am not a doctor by any means or a healthcare professional, please consult your doctor before taking any natural supplements. I am only talking from my experience and have found great relief in this supplement. It works great for me 🙂
