L-Theanine is an amino acid which can be found naturally in green tea (Camellia sinesis) and other species of Camellia. The health and relaxation benefits of drinking green tea have been widely discussed. It is now found in nutritional supplements, foods, protein bars, weight loss formulas and beverages.
Because green teas sold in North America contain less than 10 milligrams of L-theanine per serving, most people don’t drink enough to feel its effect. The dietary supplement L-theanine may offer a better option.
