L-theanine is an amino acid found in Green Tea that has been proven in clinical studies to reduce stress and anxiety
With our modern lifestyles, often fueled by caffeine, we can find it hard to achieve any calm in our day. Clinical studies have shown L-theanine produces an anti-stress effect without any drowsiness.1
Elite L-theanine is formulated with an optimal 200mg of l-theanine to promote relaxation without a loss of focus so that you can perform at your best during the day and cope with whatever life throws at you.
Caffeine + L-theanine synergise to optimise your performance
Combining your daily coffee ritual with L-theanine can improve your focus and alertness without the “jitters” that caffeine consumption can produce. L-theanine can act to reduce some of the common side effects of caffeine such as increased blood pressure.
A 2008 study conducted by the Unilever Research and Development centre found that the combination of l-theanine and caffeine improved performance on cognitively demanding tasks.2
