There are some health benefits associated with ingestion of L-theanine in the form of green and black tea.
L-theanine helps boost nitric oxide in the blood, which in turn dilates blood vessels to help lower blood pressure, which can reduce heart disease risk factor.
L-theanine can clean out free radicals in the body that contribute to organ or tissue breakdown, inflammation, degeneration, and help reduce the effects of aging.
Reduce Anxiety and Stress
L-theanine relieves anxiety because it has a close resemblance to the brain-signal chemical called as glutamate.
Blood pressure control
L-theanine supplementation prevents the sudden rise in blood pressure that people experience under stress.
Reduce Cancer Risk
Since L-theanine is a strong antioxidant, it may be one of the most potent nutrients to help shield against the vast majority of chronic and degenerative diseases, which also includes cancer.
Reduces the risk of stroke
Studies show that L-theanine has properties that may help prevent strokes and to lessen the damage caused when they occur.
