Re: Anyone try L-theanine for anxiety? Caleb462

I find that L-theanine (unlike most other supplements I've tried) actually has a noticeable effect. It's sort of energizing/focusing/calming at the same time. It's not as dramatic as prescription meds, but I'm convinced that the effect is real, and can be mildly useful. It's definitely worth a try. The Japanese use it extensively -- they add it to gum, soft drinks, etc.

BTW, you could get the same effect by drinking lots of green tea -- this amino acid is abundant in tea, especially the less-fermented kinds (= green).
