Meditation in a Bottle L-theanine, a unique free form amino acid found in green tea and various mushrooms, has been shown to increase tranquilizing alpha-waves without inducing drowsiness. Clinical studies have shown it to be effective in single doses of 100 to 200 mg 1 to 3 times daily or as needed depending on stress and anxiety levels. For those seeking a continuous mood eleveating effect, one capsule can be taken four times throughout the day. Based on the results of clinical studies, L-theanine is most effective in the range 50-200 mg, with the effect being felt within 30 minutes and lasting for 8-10 hours. Individuals with high stress levels may increase their dosage of L-theanine to at least 100 mg, with no more than 600 mg being taken in a six hour period. FDA recommends a maximum dose of 1200 mg daily, although the reason for this limit is not clear, due to its demonstrated safety. There are no known adverse reactions to L.theanine and no drug interactions have been reported. L-theanine is not affected by food and may be taken anytime, as needed.
