How L-theanine works

  • It elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine, promoting relaxation and improving sleep.
  • It reduces levels of chemicals in the brain that are linked to stress and anxiety.
  • It enhances alpha brain waves, which are  associated with a state of “wakeful relaxation.”

Matcha Green Tea

Matcha is a trendy new green tea which is finely powdered, and traditionally mixed with hot water, whisked and drunk.

The matcha tea is manufactured in a delicate manner to preserve their texture and flavour. They are dried and aged before being stone-ground into fine powder. It has about the same amount of caffeine as found in coffee, along with a natural substance called l-theanine, which induces an ‘alert calm’ in the body, a kind of relaxation without drowsiness.
