L-theanine may alleviate anxiety by inhibiting the barrage of brain excitation associated with anxiety states, according to a study published in the January 2007 “Biological Psychology” journal. The experiment was carried out by using an arithmetic test to induce anxiety in the study participants, who took L-theanine at the start of the testing procedure. Participants who received L-theanine showed reduced heart rate and immune stress response markers when compared with a control group that did not take L-theanine, say researchers K. Kimura et al., at Nagoya University Department of Psychology, Nagoya, Japan.
