Too busy to meditate? Here’s a zen shortcut.

June 8, 2022

Meditation has many physical and mental health benefits, including stress reduction and improved focus. But meditation often takes practice. It is not always as easy as it looks. Plus, you may not always have the time to turn off your phone and remove yourself from other distractions so you can achieve inner calm. When you’re feeling frazzled, and meditation is somehow out of reach, Suntheanine can help in a couple of ways. 

What happens when you meditate? 

Meditation decreases beta brain waves, which are produced when you’re wide awake and excited, including when you’re feeling stressed. Beta waves are replaced with alpha brain waves, which are associated with a calm, alert state. They help you stay focused and in the moment. 

How Suntheanine may help you find your zen 

Consuming L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, is associated with feelings of relaxation. Studies show that Suntheanine, a patented pure form of L-theanine, is a safe way to achieve a relaxed yet alert state of mind, similar to what is generally achieved through meditation. Its effects generally begin 30 minutes after ingestion. 

  • It may help improve your ability to meditate. Because Suntheanine increases alpha waves while decreasing beta brain waves, it may help you slip into a calm mental state, so your efforts to meditate can be more successful.  
  • It helps ease tension, even when you don’t have time to meditate. When you’re on a tight deadline or coping with a hectic schedule, you may not always have time to go off by yourself to unwind. As verified by extensive research, Suntheanine may help you become calmer, more focused and better able to concentrate. Best of all, its effects have been shown to last up to 8 to 12 hours. So, you can feel more alert as you power through your tasks. Unlike other stress-reducing supplements, Suntheanine doesn’t cause drowsiness so you can take it any time of day.

When it’s not possible to use meditation to clear your head, Suntheanine is an easy way to get extra support as you navigate life’s challenges.

    Suntheanine is Taiyo’s pure form of L-theanine, produced via a patented fermentation process that mimics the natural process in green tea leaves. It promotes relaxation without causing drowsiness, positive mood, mental clarity, focus, reduces nervous tension, and helps prevent the negative side-effects of caffeine.
