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.

It is a good product to relax but I need something more to sleep If I recommend it if you want to help with the stress that is experienced daily
Having dealt with anxiety for over five years and having recently stopped my regular medications, i have supplemented this in as a replacement and let me be the first to tell you this stuff REALLY makes a difference. Your anxiety may never be perfect but this helps make it that small bit more manageable and anyone with severe anxiety knows even a small amount is better than nothing!
It took a few days for me to realize the benefits but noticed that I was having more restful sleeps, wasn’t waking up as often and waking up feeling more refreshed.
This product is not very strong but effective. It takes time to calm the brain but it does work. Best part about this product is that it’s natural.
Great and easy way for my stressful days,made me feel relaxed and relieved, also helped when I had nights I was unable to tell like I could not fall asleep
