L-Theanine is found naturally in some teas, namely green tea, and has been shown to assist in reducing and balancing anxiety, as well as improving sleeping patterns. It has been shown to have a relaxing effect, depending on dosage and is actually synergistic with coffee. This means no more caffeine jitters as L-Theanine counteracts these effects whilst improving mood and focus.
L-theanine has also been shown to increase dopamine and serotonin (the “feel-good” neurotransmitters) in the brain. It also promotes motivation, attention and cognition.
Found naturally in eggs and has also been shown to assist in reducing anxiety.
Some studies have even shown that Taurine can reduce cognitive decline due to aging and assists further in reducing fatigue and helps boost fat and carbohydrate metabolization. Taurine has thus been shown to assist in improving athletic performance.
L-tyrosine has been shown to aid in boosting mood, protecting nerve cells in the brain from neurotoxins, sharpening memory and assisting in reducing anxiety.
One of the oldest Nootropics on Earth, caffeine is found, as we all know by now, naturally in coffee beans.
Caffeine helps improve alertness, memory, mood and reaction time. It has also been shown to assist in boosting athletic performance and reducing fatigue.
The reason we use Theanine with our coffee is that L-Theanine helps reduce the coffee jitters sometimes induced by coffee/caffeine.
