Zen Theanine contains L-theanine, a calming amino acid which is beneficial for those who suffer from stress and anxiety and find it difficult to focus, relax, or fall asleep. First discovered in 1949, L-theanine is a unique amino acid found in green tea which helps reduce nervousness and restlessness, promoting relaxation without causing drowsiness. L-theanine rapidly enters the body when ingested (within roughly 30-40 minutes) and relaxes the brain, calms racing thoughts and creates feelings of “zen” while promoting alertness and concentration. L-theanine influences the levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and GABA in the brain, balancing mood, sleep and learning capacity. L-theanine reduces feeling of stress by inhibiting some of the actions of norepinephrine (a stress hormone) in the central nervous system.
AOR’s Zen Theanine provides an optimal dose of L-theanine to provide fast-acting mental relaxation, with its stress reducing effects typically felt within 30 minutes of consumption.

Took every day. Within 3 days I was feeling more clear headed. And that’s amazing. I have 3 toddlers and I usually feel my sanity sinking daily. I felt revitalized and not ready to sink into the couch as soon as my kids fell asleep.
I really like this product because there were no side effects at all. This pill is perfect for anyone that's having a stressful day it made me feel so relaxed and helped me through my hectic days. Thank you so much for this s supplement. #gotitfree #trynatural
In this modern world, stress is everywhere. Luckily, I found Zen Theanine to help me out during my stressfull moments. I can easily take this pill during work and not have drowsiness. Also, I realized that this product has helped me be more productive !!
I didn't get to use it as much as I wanted to, but when I did I did feel a sense of calm. I'd like to be more consistent with it and see what happens.
I could not tell how effective it was as it did not have much of an effect on me. I don’t know if it’s a good replacement for melatonin. It didn’t have the same immediate drowsy feeling melatonin gives me but it also didn’t give me a drowsy hangover the way melatonin can. I will use the rest of the bottle but probably wouldn’t buy this again.
