The Mental Calmness formula provides natural anxiety and stress control without the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. For anyone feeling stressed, frazzled or over-committed in this 24/7 world, this safe supplement restores mental calmness and promotes relaxation.
Mental Calmness contains pure L-Theanine (Suntheanine®), a unique amino acid derived from green tea using a specialized enzymatic process. While L-Theanine does not cause daytime drowsiness, it provides help for persons who have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep because their minds refuse to shut down at night. Being calm also facilitates weight control, because emotional stress is a major reason why many over eat.
How L-Theanine works
It works in two important ways. First, L-Theanine generates alpha brain waves. The brain transmits four different types of brain waves that are determined by frequency: gamma, theta, alpha and beta. Gamma waves are present during sound sleep. Theta waves indicate dozing or light sleeping. In contrast, beta waves are present during an awake, excited state, whereas alpha waves indicate an awake, yet relaxed state. L-Theanine is absorbed quickly through the small intestine and transported directly to the brain where it stimulates the generation of alpha brain waves. Although effective doses can range from 50 to 200 mg, it only takes 30 to 40 minutes (sometimes as little as 15 minutes) after ingesting L-Theanine to achieve an alert, awake yet relaxed mental and emotional state that can last from 8 to 12 hours.
Secondly, researchers also suggest that L-Theanine plays a role in increasing the formation of GABA (gamma amino butyric acid), a neurotransmitter that is key to relaxation and memory.
A double-blind clinical study on boys diagnosed with ADHD is being conducted by Michael Lyon, M.D., Director of the Canadian Center for Functional Medicine, in conjunction with the University of British Columbia. If the results are as impressive as case studies and preliminary studies, L-theanine could emerge as a safe, natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs for the treatment of attention deficit disorders.
