What is L-Theanine?Updated 2 years ago

An ingredient in Brain Bright, L-Theanine, an amino acid extracted from exotic tea leaves, is closely related to the neurotransmitter GABA and is easily absorbed by the body. L-theanine has been shown to promote a calm, focused attention and enhance brain power.

Activity in the alpha-band is a key component in focused attention processes.
