Millions of North Americans live in a virtually constant state of stress. One of the most elusive and yet prized words has become "relaxation". Thousands of scientific articles clearly point to the fact that immune function, adrenal gland health, mental wellness and overall health are adversely affected by both acute and chronic stress. Many health experts believe that stress is one of the largest risk factors leading to chronic degenerative disease. When the stress response takes over, the body is unable to adequately relax. This leads to poorer quality sleep, insomnia, inability to optimally concentrate, irritability and ultimately negative shifts in your otherwise health promoting biochemical pathways. Indeed your health is dependent upon the proper functioning of your biochemical pathways, yet the proverbial "fight or flight" response that we experience in the modern world of hustle and bustle is not conducive to your long term surviving positively alter brain waves and has many stress relief and other benefits. Brain waves are classified into four types, namely Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Theta waves, based on mental conditions. Generation of Alpha waves is considered to be an index of relaxation. In human volunteers, Alpha waves were generated on the occipital and parietal regions of the brain surface within 40 minutes after the oral administration of theanine (50-200 mg), signifying relaxation without causing drowsiness.
L-theanine exhibits numerous benefits including:
- Relieves stress
- Promotes relaxation without drowsiness
- Reduces nervous irritability and restlessness
- Promotes a relaxed feeling
- Eases occasional simple nervous tension
- Eases nervousness due to common everyday overwork and fatigue
- Diminishes normal symptoms of premenstrual syndrome
Other applications suggested by research conducted at the Laboratory of Nutritional Biochemistry, School of Food and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Shizuoka, in Shizuoka Japan include:
- Improving Learning Performance
- Heightening Mental Activity
- Improving Concentration
- Reducing Caffeine Effects
- Supporting the Immune System
Take 1 to 2 capsules per day as needed to relieve stress. For daytime stress relief we suggest that you take either one capsule in the morning, two capsules in the morning, or one capsule in the morning and one in the afternoon. To improve quality of sleep try taking one or two capsules at bedtime. Up to 3 capsules per day may be taken if well tolerated. We generally do not recommend exceeding 3 capsules per day but some individuals may tolerate and benefit from higher daily doses. Consult a health care professional before taking more than 3 capsules per day. Brain tissue levels of the active ingredients remain elevated for about 8 hours after administration.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or taking antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, anti-seizure or other prescription medications including MAO inhibitors, consult a physician before use. 5-HTP can potentiate (increase) the effects of alcohol. Do not take with alcohol. Not recommended for use by

I had loved CalmAdvantage until I tried a combination of Jarrow Theanine and Now brand of 5-HTP. Together they have the same amount of theanine and 5-HTP, but I was surprised to find how much stronger they are. I need to use 2 caps of the CalmAdvantage to equal the strength of the other 2 together.
