What is it?

L-theanine is an amino acid commonly found in green tea.

What does it do?

L-theanine helps trigger the release of happy hormones, like serotonin and dopamine, while also stimulating calming alpha waves in the brain.

Why we chose it

Like Ashwagandha, l-theanine is an adaptogen that works to reduce stress and anxiety without any drowsy side effects.

Why not a generic L-Theanine?

Our L-Theanine is the only one proven to work in dogs and comes protected by more than 40 patents.
