*Green tea has been recognized for centuries as
having relaxant properties. Pure Encapsulations l-Theanine, a unique amino acid derived from
tea, provides the characteristic taste of green tea. Pure Encapsulations l-Theanine has
also been discovered as the biologically active constituent of green tea
responsible for promoting relaxation. In a preliminary non-clinical
study, an l-theanine solution enhanced alpha wave production in the
occipital and parietal regions of the brains of volunteers. These
observed patterns are considered to be an index of relaxation.
Furthermore, it did so rapidly and without causing drowsiness. In two
additional studies, alpha waves were also shown to be detectable soon
after Pure Encapsulations l-theanine administration. Theanine is also useful for supporting
healthy cellular function. Preliminary research suggests that Pure Encapsulations l-theanine
may be helpful for premenstrual support including healthy attitude.
Furthermore, theanine has been reported to moderate the effects of
caffeine on the central nervous system. Pure Encapsulations l-Theanine's safety is supported
in studies and by its long history of safe consumption in tea. Pure

What Is It?
Pure Encapsulations l-Theanine is a natural component of green tea that is responsible for its characteristic taste. l-Theanine is also believed to be the component in green tea responsible for its relaxation effects.*
Uses For l-Theanine
Relaxation Support: Preliminary clinical evidence shows an increase in alpha brain wave activity after theanine administration. Alpha waves are an indication of an alert/relaxed mental state.*
Premenstrual Support: In a clinical test, theanine provided both mental and physical support for women, including moderation of occasional irritability and stress.*
Nervous System Support: Pure Encapsulations l-Theanine moderates the effects of caffeine on the central nervous system. It has also been shown to support healthy neurotransmitter function.*
What Is The Source?
l-Theanine is the most abundant free-form amino acid found in tea leaves. Suntheanine® l-Theanine is produced from enzymatic fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
