Calming L theanine

Always amazing. Take this in place of dangerous pharmecuticals. Like I do. A little bit of a nootropic as well

Synergy of L-theanine and GABA

In the article "GABA and l-theanine mixture decreases sleep latency and improves NREM sleep" at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6366437/ the authors found that GABA and L-theanine in the ratio 5:1 is more effective than either alone, and more effective than both at other ratios: "The effects of the best sleep-promoting GABA/l-theanine dose combination (100/20 mg/kg) were compared to the changes in sleep latency and duration induced by the single administration of GABA or l-theanine ... . The combined use of GABA/l-theanine (100/20 mg/kg) showed a decrease in sleep latency (20.7% and 14.9%, respectively) and an increase in sleep duration (87.3% and 26.8%, respectively) compared to a single administration of GABA (100 mg/kg) or theanine (20 mg/kg). The combined use of GABA/l-theanine showed synergy effects on sleep latency and sleep duration time." The authors measured sleep duration and latency for the following four proportions of GABA/L-theanine, in mg / kg. 80/20 80/30 100/20 100/30 The maximum sleep duration and shortest sleep latency was found at the 100/20 = 5/1 ratio. Therefore, since for insomnia, a typically used dose range of L-theanine is 100 mg - 250 mg, it follows that the optimal GABA dose ranges from 500 mg to 1250 mg. I found the above article after having ordered 100 g of GABA and 100 g of L-theanine; the correct quantities should have been, per the optimal 5/1 ratio, 500 g GABA and 100 g L-theanine. I give this product a temporary 5-star, based only on the above research. (In the past, I have already used theanine, but not GABA). My experience with theanine alone is positive, but not completely satisfactory.) I will try soon 500 mg GABA and 100 mg L-theanine per insomnia, increasing the dose, if necessary, to 1000 mg GABA - 200 mg L-theanine; and will report accordingly in less than four weeks.
