Drinking tea has its Oriental roots from at least 5000 years ago. The Chinese had already uncovered the benefits of tea by then, and so did the Japanese. Not just as a beverage, but also, as a medicine did tea become an essential part of the daily life and has ever been since then.
The Japanese regard tea so highly that they have a tea ceremony celebrated every year. Tea is prepared from the leaves of the flowering plant Camellia, and it has an excellent biochemistry that blends perfectly with the physical effects of the human body. More than black tea, it is the green tea that helps with the rejuvenation and elevation process, which, in turn, elevates the brain capacity. We are left feeling simply happy. Such is the power of tea. And where does it get all its healing power from? An amino acid, theanine, it is. Moreover, this compound has lately been under substantial research ever since its isolation in 1949.
Lately, the dependency in caffeine has increased because it helps the body to stay alert for longer hours, hence, helping us to work more. Although the caffeine content in tea sometimes exceeds coffee’s, it does not hit as fast as coffee does, or any other beverage, such as energy drinks, diet drinks, or drugs. The secret behind this slow reaction is L-theanine. The problem with the other kind of caffeine is that stays in the body for more than 10 hours and if you are alcoholic, then probably a bit longer. This is not the case when L-theanine is around. It has been proven to slow down the hard-hitting effect of caffeine but keeping the fat burning and rejuvenation capability intact, and hence is in the Geniux ingredients.
Stress and depression release glucocorticoids, which disrupts the balance in brain chemistry and hampers with memory capacity. The chemicals serotonin, norepinephrine, etc. neurotransmitters face a disruption because of elevated stress levels in the body. The modern world will make sure you stay stressed, so you have to devise a way to combat its ill effects. L-theanine comes to your rescue here.
In the long term, L-theanine can help protect us from chronic neurodegenerative diseases. Stressed nerves suffer just as a string that has been stretched for too long. You can worry less if you are taking supplements or drinking tea.
Theanine has garnered a lot of interest among researchers in medical sciences lately because of its superb healing effects. Mostly, for the treatment of Alzheimer’s patients, post-chemo patient,s etc. where the brain and liver undergo a gradual shock, the compound has proved its worth.
Now that L-theanine is available as supplements in the form of tablets, a good advice from a medical practitioner and you are good to go.
Alcoholics too can share the goodness of L-theanine. Japanese researchers have shown that liver responds well to theanine. Its main function involves blocking the toxic radicals and break down acetaldehyde. The free radicals in the body are known to do much harm, which the theanine helps prevent.
Talks are on to include theanine to patients undergoing chemotherapy. Theanine has been found to restore glutathione levels in the liver, which is otherwise lost because consequent of harsh drug interaction.
For the tumour part, theanine blocks its glutathione feed. This is how it helps restore balance into the ailing body.
For ages, it has been known that tea, green or black, has abilities to keep cancer at bay. Now there are scientific researches to prove the theories. The Oriental world has always reached the importance of tea in the western world that is obsessed with coffee.
The scales are out now. It is up to you to weigh the effects according to your perception and decide whether to start sipping that piping cup of hot clear liquid and distress your body and mind. Choice rests on you. Theanine wishes you the best of health. May you live long.
