Not a single one of us has escaped the past year stress- or anxiety-free, and nurturing our mental health is often an afterthought. Nature’s Emporium held this NExt Level Health Webinar to help viewers find ways to cope. We’re excited functional medicine expert Bryce Wylde enthusiastically praised Suntheanine for its ability to help people calm down, focus and get better sleep.
It “improves focus, attention, alertness, concentration, mood and sleep. All of those things!” Wylde said. Suntheanine is a patented, 100% pure form of the amino acid L-theanine, which promotes relaxation. But not all stress-reducing supplements are created equally: “It’s gotta be Suntheanine, not other forms of L-theanine,” said Wylde. “I travel the globe. I do due diligence on these ingredients.”
Wylde has visited Suntheanine’s manufacturer Taiyo in Japan, where he learned about how Suntheanine is made and the science behind it: “They’ve got over 70 human clinical trials behind them.”
Some of that research shows that Suntheanine stimulates alpha wave activity in the brain, which Wylde explained this way: “That wave is a meditative, concentrating state. It’s what Buddhist monks try to get into when they meditate, so you’re able to focus better.”
Suntheanine is produced through a fermentation process that mimics the natural process in green tea leaves. Green tea has long been used for its ability to soothe and calm, but it’s hard to drink enough to get the calming benefits from L-theanine, which is found almost exclusively in tea.
Wylde also talked about using Suntheanine, available in chewables, to help improve sleep for children, including those with ADHD. It has been shown to improve sleep quality for active kids, without affecting how they feel the next day.
Webinar host Miranda Malisani agreed with Wylde’s enthusiasm for Suntheanine, and said she has been taking a Suntheanine supplement for nine months: “What I love is it doesn’t sedate you, but it allows you to calm down anurturing mental health nd gets you into the right frame of mind for sleep.”
