Everyone knows that a nice cup of tea is the best thing for someone who has had some kind of shock or stressful ordeal. No other hot drink seems to offer this kind of support so there must be something in tea that has this calming effect.
Tea certainly contains a surprising amount of caffeine and yet is not generally considered as a stimulant in the same way that coffee is. Some researchers think that this maybe because tea contains something else – in effect cancelling out the caffeine.
The mystery ingredient in tea is now thought to be an amino acid called L-Theanine. Whilst it is not unique to tea, the tea plant seems a particularly rich source. When L-Theanine has been given to people in clinical studies many of the positive effects of tea can be reproduced.
We are delighted to introduce L-Theanine to the Lamberts® range. We have chosen to use Suntheanine® since this is a patented pharmaceutical grade L-Theanine whereas other L-Theanine products can contain up to 50% of the inactive ‘D’ form. It is also the product that has been used in numerous clinical studies worldwide.
And unlike most supplements that need to be part of a regime for several weeks before a response may be noted, frequently with L-Theanine there is a response within the first few hours of use.
L-Theanine is not thought to be addictive and does not cause drowsiness.
