My overthinking and anxiety about doing everything perfect has been a big obstacle for my health and mental well-being. Not until my 50’s, did I really get it under control (I still agonize over it, because I wished it had happened sooner).
Now, I’m really conscious about how important it is to help my clients with their mental well-being to further protect them from any illness and cancer.
A supplement that I have found to be very succesful for my clients is a natural relaxation and anti-anxiety substance called, L-Theanine. It is an amino acid found exclusively in green and black tea. When taken as a supplement, in a higher amount than found in one cup of tea, L-Theanine has remarkable positive mood enhancing benefits. I recommend the potent Enzymatic Therapy L-Theanine supplement made from the highest quality raw materials.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it would be worth trying L-Theanine:
Stress and Anxiety. Stress is detrimental to your health, lowering your immune system and quality of life. L-Theanine promotes a simultaneous alert and relaxed state of mind, free of drowsiness, by increasing calming alpha brain waves and decreasing stressful beta brain waves. The alpha wave production from L-Theanine is similar to the alpha wave production from meditation.
PMS. Women taking 200mg L-Theanine a day have shown to have an alleviation of PMS symptoms including physical, mental, and social symptoms.
Brain Enhancement and Alertness. L-Theanine has a role in the formation of the inhibitory neurotransmitter Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA). GABA, the anti anxiety neurotransmitter, increases the utilization of dopamine and serotonin which provide energy and happiness. L-theanine does not cause drowsiness or a sedated mental state like anti-anxiety and depression prescription medications do. Through the natural release of dopamine and serotonin, alertness and happiness are reached without lethargy.
Sleep. Clinical studies have reported that L-Theanine improves sleep quality. Men who took L-theanine one hour before bedtime for six days reported an absence of exhaustion and need for sleep. Those who used the supplement also reported a higher percentage of the night spent sleeping restfully.
Concentration. L-Theanine improves learning and mental performance by improving concentration levels. It has been shown to increase attention and focus during long-term, difficult tasks. The supplement may also improve memory in adults with mild cognitive impairment.
The best bet is to start at the minimum threshold dose, which is 100 mg per day. The first time you take L-Theanine, do so on its own without any other supplements. Then go about your regular activities – and be sure to note how you feel. Do you feel more relaxed? Is it easier to concentrate? How was your sleep? The next day/time you take the supplement, increase the dose by 100 mg, and note the effects. It is common to feel the best benefit at an average of 200 mg per day, while some people feel best with dosages as high as 400 – 500 mg.
**If you are taking chemotherapy, blood pressure or cholesterol medications, you should not take L-theanine
