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.

I was thoroughly impressed with this product and fast acting influence on my life. Zero side effects and made by a brand my family trusts. This is now a product that's always on hand and recommended to family and friends.
I didn't really notice any differences. I took it for a few weeks and really nothing significant to note. I wouldn't recommend to a friend. But, it may work for some and not others.
I used this to help relax before bed and it worked really well. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family who need help to relax and the end of a long day
I did not se a difference unfortunately . I've tried other medications before and they work WAY better. Might just be me but I will not be purchasing this product
I really enjoyed this product. I am someone who lives with anxiety/depression and enjoy natural mood boosters. It did take some time to feel any effect but it did come. I would recommend to anyone who is looking to add something onto their happiness routine. I will be buying this product again!
