Product Description

L-Theanine or 5-N-ethyl-glutamine is an amino acid derivative of glutamic acid, extracted from green tea (and occasionally mushrooms). It’s thought that theanine exhibits calming effects by increasing levels of GABA and serotonin, as it readily crosses the blood-brain barrier. Green tea is rich in polyphenols such as flavanols, flavandiols, flavonoids, and phenolic acids. Flavanols including epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epicatechin (EC) are all referred to as catechins. Catechins seem to be responsible for many of the proposed antioxidant benefits of green tea. There is evidence that suggests that theanine might prevent the development of atherosclerosis by inhibiting lipid peroxidation of low-density lipoproteins and preliminary studies also show that the flavonoids found in green tea might reduce lipoprotein oxidation. This makes NOW®’s combination of l-theanine and green tea an important natural formulation for reducing oxidative stress of the cardiovascular system. This is a non-caffeinated formulation to ensure there are no blood pressure increases.
