Stressed-out viewers of Edmonton’s Global News learn of a solution


May 5, 2015

While many people love spring, plenty of others find the entire season demanding. Whether it’s the added burden of spring cleaning or the countless end-of-school-year activities, spring may leave you frazzled and sleepless. Suntheanine is an amino acid which helps reduce nervous tension and improve sleep quality. Holistic pharmacist Sherry Torkos told Edmonton’s Global News viewers that the supplement also won’t cause next-day drowsiness. Say goodbye to stressed-out days and hello to more restful sleep.

Quality sleep may be hard to achieve when you’re overly busy. “People today are very stressed. They have a hard time relaxing and getting calm,” said Torkos. A Suntheanine supplement may help you get the rest your body needs. “It’s clinically researched and shown to promote calming and relaxation,” explained Torkos.”

Torkos advised stressed-out viewers to look for supplements formulated with this clinically studied form of L-theanine. “It’s in these products by Quest Vitamins, Natural Factors and Tomorrow’s Nutrition. Suntheanine is what to look for,” she explained. “You won’t get that hangover effect the next day. You’ll just feel more Zen-like.”

Suntheanine, a patented pure form of L-theanine, is not a tranquilizer or sedative. It helps put you in a calm, relaxed state so you can enter sleep more quickly and sleep deeper. With Suntheanine, you’ll also wake up from sleep less groggy, and ready to start the day.

Researchers have found L-theanine effective at helping fifth-year pharmacy students reduce their anxiety and get better quality rest. In this single-blind study, students were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or 200 mg of L-theanine twice a day. Anxiety was assessed with the state-trait anxiety inventory test and by measuring salivary alpha-amylase activity. Results suggest that L-theanine had an anti-stress effect on the students.

Suntheanine may be taken 30 minutes before bedtime to calm your mind. Lowering your room temperature and refraining from using electronic gadgets before bed may also help you get a better night’s sleep.
