From the Camellia Sinensis plant (that's tea to you & me!) comes Swanson's most potent Theanine complex yet. Nothing relaxes you quite like a cuppa - unless, of course, you take a concentrated form of the amino acid responsible for that sensation and put it in a wholesome veggie capsule that is.
Did you know that tea has been used as a beverage for over 1000 years? Perhaps that's not all that surprising. What is surprising though is that for 4000 years prior to that it was actually used as a medicine. Such is the intertwining relationship of tea and medicine that the Japanese still have a ceremony for it each year when it is harvested.
It is for that very same incredible impact that tea as had on Far Eastern culture that it has come to be known as not just a pleasant tasting drink but also for its scientifically documented ability to relax, rejuvenate, enhance the ability to think, and even change our mood.
Certainly, in the UK, we have a very special relationship with tea. Considered to be the cornerstone of any day, working or otherwise, one would dread to think of the British Isles without its most famous import.
Because there are so many different types of tea you might be surprised to learn that Camellia Sinensis Sinensis (used to make Swanson Ultra Suntheanine L-Theanine) is the same leaf that produces both Green and Black Teas - some of the most antioxidant heavy teas.
Allow the soothing, relaxing power of Swanson Ultra Suntheanine L-Theanine swim over you with these easy to take, nutritionally optimised vegetarian capsules.
We've all heard about the antioxidant value of Green Tea and it is high. Higher perhaps than black tea because the leaves are ‘fried' to keep them from oxidising and turning black. The result is that they can keep a lot more of their ORAC (antioxidant measurement system) value. The beauty of Swanson Ultra Suntheanine L-Theanine is that it precludes the need to differentiate - it actively promotes the central chemical which denotes antioxidant value.
The key antioxidant in L-Theanine is Epigallocatechin Gallate (ECG) and there is no doubting its antioxidant value as it works by neutralising the oxidative stress of free radicals on our body at a cellular level.
Suntheanine - the patented formula used by Swanson - actually stores more of that ECG than you'd find not just in tea but in other supplements too.
You might have heard about the caffeine content of tea and worried about it. After all, can caffeine be good for you? As it turns out, when it is balanced with the calming agents of L-Theanine, it can actually provide a harmless and proactive effect - all the benefits of caffeine (more energy, better attention span) with none of the negatives (jitteriness, heart palpitations).
Swanson Ultra Suntheanine L-Theanine is all of the natural goodness of tea in one handy place.
