was recommended this product to help with anxiety. The ingredients are the right composition and a must to include in my personal diet. Certainly feel the effects soon after consuming. There is no taste to this product and the size of the capsule is easy to take. Good quality product especially with the suntheanine component.
An EXCELLENT supplement for sleep.
If taking it for that reason, have at night about 2 hours before sleeping. Also a good idea to combine it with magnesium l-threonate and apigenin, if using for that reason.
Also a great supplement for alertness and focus.
If taking it for that reason, have in the morning (I enjoy taking it with my coffee, and gives me a nice even amount of focus and flow during the work day).
But don't take twice a day - just choose one or the other, or your body will naturally adjust to the amount and you'll lose the effects.
If you find this review useful, please give me a little thumbs up, I would really appreciate it :-)
My former psychologist turned me on to L-Theanine maybe 10 yrs ago now .
I was having panic attacks but did not want to add a benzodiazepine to my scrip roster ( which already contained a long-term narcotic for pain maintenance ) .
Skeptical I was , for sure - and amazed 15 mins later when I realized my discomfort had subtly slipped away .
I say subtly because unlike prescription tranquilizers these don`t make you feel loopy or cost you energy . In fact , energy is improved .
Although this brand , and the trademarked Suntheanine it contains , are a little pricey I recommend buying these over " generic " L -Theanine .
I tried Now`s very inexpensive chewable ( non brand name ) L-Theanine for a month . At $ 12 for 90 pills , the price was right ; but I am very sensitive , and I was able to discern a difference between Now`s Theanine & the Doctor`s Best Suntheanine product .
Stock when there are sales ( SITEWIDE60 got me 20 % off two 120 tab bottles ) .
This is one of the most noticeable theanine supplements I´ve ever taken. I can notice a difference when I take it even though the dose is not that high. I´ve tried even 200mg from other brands but, as I recall, the effect wasn´t so noticeable like this 125mg one. This will probably be my standard choice for theanine now. Great quality and safe ingredients.
it is apparently THE best form of theanine, the most bio available.
This type of theanine works fine for me , however, works as well as non "suntheanine" one.
i had bought it for my partner hoping he would be more responsive to this type. Conclusion : It is not obvious.
I was told that suntheanine is purer than normal L theanine and this product offer a very good price. Previously, I was taking the normal theanine from Japan ( more expensive) and can really feel some difference in sleep quality. Will see if this one do the same.
I don't know the result yet, so I take this product in the morning and 2 hours before going to bed. However, when I think about the days when I don't use it, I feel that I can fall asleep more gently when I use it. Since it acts slowly, there are no side effects or gastrointestinal burden.
