Jarrow Formulas Theanine Gummies deliver 100 mg L-Theanine per gummy. Theanine is a unique amino acid found almost exclusively in green tea that exerts beneficial effects on brain metabolism. Theanine induces relaxation without causing drowsiness, as measured by increased generation of alpha-waves. Theanine may promote calmness by affecting dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters in the brain. Also, theanine may exert protective effects on the brain by helping to maintain healthy metabolism of glutamate. Directions: For children ages 8 and up, chew 1 gummy per day on an empty stomach or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
