DEEP SLEEP FOR KEEPS
There’s a reason why this flavonoid antioxidant and amino acid has been all the rage since discovered in 1949 by a Japanese scientist. Found in tea leaves and some mushrooms, L-Theanine is said to relieve anxiety and stress, induce relaxation and sleep, boost immunity, help manage blood pressure, increase focus, and improve memory.
Several studies suggest that L-theanine can help people relax before bed, fall asleep more easily, and sleep more deeply. These sleep and relaxation benefits may result from the specific effects that the amino acid has on brain chemicals that play a vital role in sleep.
