Got the summertime jitters?

Got the summertime jitters

July 20, 2021

In the summertime heat, perhaps nothing is as refreshing as sweet tea or ice-cold cola. We need to stay cool and hydrated, right? But even as you chug glass after glass, have you considered how much caffeine you’re consuming? If you sometimes get the jitters after sipping icy cold caffeinated beverages, consider taking Suntheanine as well. 

What’s the fuss about caffeine? 

Caffeine is a strong stimulant. Healthcare professionals say most healthy adults can consume up to 400 mg of caffeine a daily. That roughly equates to: 

  • Four 8-oz. glasses of brewed iced tea
  • 10 cans of cola 
  • Four cans of energy drinks 
  • 10 8-oz glasses of decaffeinated iced coffee 

But outdoor heat may amp up caffeine’s stimulating side effects on the body. And for some people who are sensitive to caffeine, such as those who may not be used to consuming it daily or in large quantities, those side effects can really hit you! You may feel:

  • Jittery, nervous or irritable 
  • Headachy 
  • Nauseous 
  • Unable to sleep

Suntheanine helps balance caffeine’s side effects

Suntheanine, a pure form of L-theanine, amplifies alpha brain waves, promoting a calm, alertness. It reduces caffeine’s negative effects such as jitters, dizziness or nausea. The general recommended ratio is 1 part caffeine to 2 parts Suntheanine. For example, for one 8-oz glass of iced tea (40 to 120 mg of caffeine), you’d want up to 200 mg of Suntheanine. 

Suntheanine may also help you get the most out of a relaxing summertime getaway by helping you feel calmer and get more sleep
