Synergistic formula supports healthy mood, cognitive function and stress management
- Supports relaxation and stress management without drowsiness
- Supports healthy neurotransmitter levels
- Supports optimal mood levels with 5-HTP
Supports Relaxation.L-theanine directly stimulates the production of alpha brain waves, which creates a deep state of relaxation. Research with human volunteers has demonstrated that L-theanine creates its relaxing effect approximately 30 to 40 minutes after ingestion. (1)
Supports Cognitive Function.L-theanine stimulates alpha-brain waves, which increase mental alertness L-theanine also plays a role in the formation of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which regulates neurotransmitters and helps maintain relaxed levels of neuron activity. (2)
Supports Healthy Mood.In addition to L-theanine, L-Theanine Calm-Plex contains two additional mood-enhancing ingredients, 5-HTP and GABA. These natural compounds work synergistically to help maintain balanced neurotransmitter levels in the brain, promoting a strong sense of well-being and healthier mood.

- L-Theanine Calm-Plex is a synergistic formula that effectively combines L-Theanine with GABA and 5-HTP for relaxation plus mood support. L-Theanine Calm-Plex uses Suntheanine® brand L-theanine, the purest form of L-theanine available, to deliver maximum calming effects.
- Japanese Green Tea is a powerful antioxidant that is also used to support calmness and tranquility. One of the main components of green tea is the amino acid L-Theanine.
- Research has shown that L-Theanine can increase levels of GABA, a brain chemical known for its calming effects, and dopamine, which can promote mood enhancement. L-Theanine is non-drowsy and may even increase mental focus and concentration as it supports a calm state of mind.2
The L-Theanine Relaxation Effect
- L-theanine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier of humans and exerts subtle changes in biochemistry. An increase in alpha waves has been documented (see above), and the effect has been compared to getting a massage or taking a hot bath. L-theanine is different from kava-kava in that it doesn't cause drowsiness. Research with human volunteers has demonstrated that L-theanine creates its relaxing effect in approximately 30 to 40 minutes after ingestion.
- The mechanism behind this effect is two-fold: 1) L-theanine directly stimulates production of alpha brain waves, which creates a deep state of relaxation while maintaining mental alertness. 2) L-theanine appears to play a role in the formation of gamma-aminobutyric acid, better known as GABA. GABA acts as a powerful manager of neurotransmitters and helps maintain relaxed levels of neuron activity.
How L-Theanine Differs From Other Calming Herbs
- The main difference between L-theanine and other calming herbs such as valerian root, kava kava, skullcap and passion flower (among others), is that it does not cause drowsiness - thereby offering you the benefit of relaxation without sedation. This could be very helpful for patients who want a calming effect while maintaining the ability to perform tasks that require alertness, concentration or mental acuity. In addition, unlike most amino acids, L-theanine can be taken with or without food, and at any time.
5-HTP & GABA: Natural Support for Healthy Neurotransmitter Levels
- L-Theanine Calm-Plex contains two additional mood-enhancing ingredients called 5-HTP and GABA. These natural compounds work synergistically to help maintain balanced neurotransmitter levels in the brain. Together they support proper memory and nervous function, while promoting a strong sense of well-being and relaxation.
- 5-HTP is manufactured in the body from the amino acid L-Tryptophan and is used to produce the neurotransmitter serotonin. Research has shown serotonin plays a key role in maintaining mood, cognitive function and neuron communication.
- By adding 5-HTP to the L-Theanine formula, the body directly receives the materials it needs to promote healthy serotonin levels, and thus balanced mood. The 10mg dose of 5-HTP in L-Theanine Calm-Plex is not significant enough to cause drowsiness.
- GABA is naturally produced from the amino acid glutamine and the sugar glucose. It is concentrated in the hypothalamus area of the brain and is known to play a role in healthy pituitary function, which helps maintain hormone synthesis, proper sleep cycles, and body temperature. GABA primarily functions in the body as a powerful inhibitor of neurotransmitters and to help maintain relaxed levels of neuron activity.
- Over-stimulated or over-active neurons may lead to feelings of restlessness, irritability and sleeplessness. GABA inhibits nerve cells from over-firing to promote feelings of calmness and stability.
- Synergistic Formula Supports Relaxation and Mood. Combining L-theanine, GABA and 5-HTP best supports a calm mood, relaxation and neurotransmitter activity. L-theanine is one of the best compounds to support relaxation because it does not cause drowsiness like many others do.

I’ve taken up to 3 at a time.
These are expensive and didn’t help even the slightest.
Tried this on a whim and am very happy. It helps me relax but isn’t super strong, which I prefer. I’m very happy with it.
