    This simple green tea extract has totally replaced my prescription medications to treat anxiety and panic attacks. In the last few years I have had my house burn down, lost two family members, become handicapped and lost my sheltie of 17 years, my best friend. Needless to say I have been a bit stressed. I was prescribed Alprazolam and Lexapro to help deal with the increased stress and anxiety when my son left for his first tour of duty in Iraq. After a few months I did not like the way they made me feel mentally or physically. So I saw a Holistic doctor who took me off (over a few weeks) the medications and started me on L-Theanine. One 200 mg capsule twice a day. OMG what a difference, I have my anxiety and stress under control and if I feel a panic attack coming on I just take two additional capsules and I feel relaxed, in control with out the fog and side affects of the prescription medications. I don’t like taking prescription meds so this has been a plus for me. I highly recommend you do NOT go off your medications with our talking to your doctor, as this can dangerous depending on the medication. I have two friends and a daughter in law who also take L-Theanine and it has improved there life greatly as has mine.

    I work in a retail sales job that is stressful about 90% of the time. These really help me not want to punch customers in the face as much. I also have anxiety often and these help me relax and think more clear and optimistic. Every once in a while I’ll take one before bed and sleep really good, but I wouldn’t advise reliance on these for a sleep aid as addiction is a possibility.

    I really like L-Theanine and use it at night to help me fall asleep and sleep more soundly. There’s lots of other calming and anti-stress reasons you might want to give this a try for, too. I take anywhere from 400- 600mg about an hour before I will be retiring. This product doesn’t knock you out, or give you a “hang-over” the next morning, rather is a subtle way to help relax you.

    Because L-Theanine is an amino acid, it’s natural.

    I suggest you only buy L-Theanine labeled as Suntheanine, as that “formulation” supposedly is 100% pure L-Theanine and many other products aren’t and it’s really not any more expensive to buy the best. My research in trying to find myself a natural sleep aid found this information which steered me towards wanting the Suntheanine formulation: “Suntheanine is the trade name for Taiyo’s patented pure form of L-theanine. Suntheanine is not an extract of green tea, but rather is produced via a patented fermentation process that mimics the natural process in green tea leaves, resulting in a 100% pure L-isomer-theanine.” If you do an online search for Suntheanine, you’ll find references to the Japanese sleep studies and about the manufacturer – Taiyo, all of which convinced me to first try this.

    I have been using this product for almost a year now. I use it almost every night but do find if I don’t take it for a few nights, that when I do resume taking it, I definitely notice I have a deeper type of sleeping experience.

    I have found this particular NOW brand product to be the best $$ value out there for my purposes.
