Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not reviewing theanine as a valuable nutritional supplement (it is), but rather Jarrow's offering of theanine.
The current price of $15 is comparable to other brands.
The capsules are a little larger than they need to be (thus more filler than is necessary).
The quality of Jarrow's theanine (sourced from Suntheanine) is excellent.
This is a good product.
Theanine, is a valuable nutrient for anyone under a lot of stress (like most people are).
Theanine reduces anxiety and improves attention, boosting cognition. Theanine increases serotonin levels. Also it promotes the activity of an enzyme which breaks down beta-amyloid and thus may help prevent Alzheimer's disease. Theanine is also known to lower blood pressure and reduce the tendency to gain abdominal fat.
The recommended daily dosage of theanine is 100 to 400 mg per day.
