By Anna and Hayley
Are you stressed out? Is anxiety eating away at you? Stress and anxiety can come at any time of year, be in the holidays, a big move, new job or loss of a loved one. Here is one thing lots of our customers have tried and find success with.
Mental Calm: L-Theanine
One of the most effective supplements for easing stress and anxiety is Natural Factors Mental Calmness or its key ingredient, L-theanine.
What is L-Theanine?
L-theanine is an amino acid derived from green tea that assists with serotonin production. L-theanine is a precursor to 5-HTP (the major precursor amino acid that helps increase serotonin production in the brain), meaning that you get all the benefits of taking 5-HTP without the occasional drowsiness experienced by taking high doses of 5-HTP.
How it works:
Serotonin is the major neurotransmitter in the brain responsible for making you feel calm, happy, relaxed. It balances mood, assists with memory and brain function, as well as helps regulate the sleep cycle. L-theanine helps your body to regulate and increase its production of serotonin, allowing you to feel more calm and relaxed while experiencing stress and anxiety.
Natural Factors Mental Calmness comes in a chewable tablet that is delicious and fast acting. For quick stress or anxiety relief, chew 1-2 Mental Calmness tablets as needed, up to 8 in a day. The chewable tablets are quick to work, giving an instant sense of calm.
For daily use, the L-theanine capsules by Natural Factors or Now, provide a slower but longer acting effect throughout the day.
