L-Theanine 150mg – 30 Veg. Capsules are an amino acid. Amini acids are classified as the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. They are generally classified as “essential” or “non-essential”, with essential amino acids meaning they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to maintain good all-round health.

It has a chemical structure similar to a neurotransmitter type of amino acid, glutamine, which naturally occurs in the body. L-Theanine is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and can influence brain wave activity.
L-Theanine 150 mg is to be taken twice daily, 1 capsule and comes in an easy to absorb vegetable form.
