Everyone loves coffee - in part because of its caffeine content. Caffeine is itself a nootropic due to its beneficial effects on cognitive function. It is known to boost concentration and focus and can also give you a little extra energy before a workout. Studies are also ongoing to its mood boosting properties, which won’t surprise many of you.
However, some people can experience a coffee crash later in the day or jitters if they have too much.
This is where L-Theanine comes in. L-Theanine is an amino acid found naturally alongside caffeine in green tea - and its pairing is indeed a gift from nature. L-Theanine works to enhance the benefits of caffeine and balance out any negatives. Studies have shown that it prolongs the focus and concentration provided by caffeine. It also increases levels of dopamine, serotonin and GABA which improve mood and reduce anxiety.
No crashes or jitters - just prolonged, calm concentration and alertness helping you get to the next level of productivity.
