Since ancient times, it has been said that drinking green tea induces relaxation. A pioneer in the science of green tea, Taiyo found this relaxation to be due to the presence of the amino acid L-Theanine. Suntheanine® is the trade name of the original, patented, extensively studied and FDA GRAS-affirmed high purity L-isomer-specific L-Theanine, recognized world-wide.
Suntheanine® has been shown to be safe based on numerous favorable toxicology and efficacy studies. Unlike other stress reducing supplements, Suntheanine® does not cause drowsiness. Suntheanine® has been consumer in beverages, foods and supplements since 1994 with no indication of adverse reactions or contraindications. Suntheanine® has been trusted by consumers and major brands for over two decades.
