Description</a></p>
<div class=”ntc_box_1″>
<p>L-Theanine is what gives tea its relaxing, anti-stress appeal. In
this concentrated form, it creates a focusing anti-anxiety effect that is
valued in itself, and is also used to take the edge off other nootropic
compounds.</p>
<p>Often taken with an early morning coffee, L-Theanine reduces the
jitters and anxiety of caffeine whilst amplifying the cognitive benefits,
creating a clean and lucid energy. It has a similar mellowing and amplifying
effect on <a href=”../piracetam/”>Piracetam</a>, <a
href=”../phenylpiracetam/”>Phenylpiracetam</a> and <a
href=”../adrafinil/”>Adrafinil</a>.</p>
