Great for cognitive functions, less for anxiety
Posted by Reviewer1976825 on Nov 30, 2008
I bought theanine thinking it would help calm me down and relieve my anxiety, but that effect only lasted for a day or two. Another thing that I was surprised to discover was its effect on cognitive abilities: being a student, I coud focus three times as long, and think way more clearly. Now I take it before challenging and time-consuming tasks and know I won't get tired, but I do have to find something else for anxiety, though. All in all, a good product, but probably does not match the needs of every single individual. The price was great, and the shipment was superfast - iHerb is now my favorite.
Seems to reduce anxiety..

I've been having these for a while now. Wouldn't say that relaxing effect is remarkable, but seems to reduce anxiety noticeably. For a product without side effects, I'd rate at least adequate result and I'm very happy with that.

but not as good as Now double strength(which is the same mg).

I have found theanine helpful and take it as an adjunct to my first-line anti-stress supplements which are inositol, kava, and valerian.

For non-drowsiness anti-anxiety it is effective although multiple capsules may be sometimes needed. Recommended (also doctor recommended). Combined with valerian extract (not just root) which is excellent in giving quick sleep, it extends a longer and deeper sleep.
Helps Me Focus

I take this with Jarrow's Neuro-Optimizer. Helps me focus without feeling jittery.
less stress is good.

theanine reduces stress. it depends on the person how much, so your mileage may vary.
Great product, a bit on the pricey side

I love theanine to balance out the edginess from coffee, and this product never disappoints. Jarrow Formulas is a top brand, so the price is right in line with the quality.

so hard for me to tell if a supplement is good or not
It is my 2nd favorite Theanine

Jarrow brand is good but Now brand is my favorite.
