L-theanine is a non-essential amino acid that occurs primarily in leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis, which is used to produce black, oolong and green tea. People have used L-theanine and green tea historically as a way to reduce stress while remaining alert and avoiding drowsiness. A study published in the January 2007 issue of “Biological Psychology” found that L-theanine intake resulted in reduced heart rate and salivary responses to a stressful task when compared with a placebo. Drugs.com cites a Japanese study showing that L-theanine promotes alpha brain waves, an indicator of alert relaxation.
L-tryptophan is converted into the neurotransmitter serotonin. As a neurotransmitter, serotonin has a role in learning and memory. It also regulates appetite and mood. Low levels of serotonin can cause depression. After tryptophan is converted into serotonin, your body uses serotonin to produce the hormone melatonin. In this way, tryptophan helps regulate your sleep-wake cycle, because melatonin promotes sleep.
Rhodiola rosea is one of several Asian plants known as adaptogens. These herbs and roots have the potential to support the health of the adrenal system, which controls the body’s ability to respond to stress. Some people use rhodiola for treating cancer, tuberculosis, and diabetes; preventing cold and flu, aging, and liver damage; improving hearing; strengthening the nervous system; and enhancing immunity.
