How much Suntheanine should you take?

how much suntheanine should i take

When you’re in the midst of a stressful day, you may easily lose focus and start feeling frazzled. Sugar and caffeine in energy drinks may offer a quick fix, but those are stimulants. Suntheanine works differently. It safely and effectively helps you stay calm by stimulating your alpha brain wave activity. This helps to improve your ability to concentrate and reduces tension. 

Start with a 50 to 100 mg. dose, with or without food, whenever you notice signs that you need to calm down. Suntheanine’s benefits typically kick in within 30 minutes and can last up to 8-12 hours. Note that if you are already in a calm, relaxed state, there’s no need to take Suntheanine as it will likely have little to no effect.

And since Suntheanine won’t make you drowsy (unlike other stress-reducing supplements), it may be taken any time you’re dealing with a stressful situation. When used later in the evening, Suntheanine may also help you relax so you can enjoy more restful sleep. 

Here’s another reason to relax. Suntheanine is a patented pure form of L-theanine produced via a patented fermentation process. This is one reason why Suntheanine is very safe. Other brands may promise those same results, but they may not be produced to the same exacting quality specifications and may therefore not yield the same benefits. Suntheanine has a long history of research suggesting its safety and efficacy, is GRAS Affirmed (Generally Recognized as Safe), and has numerous certifications including Non GMO Verification and Informed Ingredient.

When stress starts sidetracking your day, Suntheanine can safely help you feel calmer and more focused.
