Where do the leading dietary supplement companies go to discover the best ingredients available? Many attend (and also exhibit at) Expo West in Anaheim, California. This behind-the-scenes video from the show looks at why many top brands use Suntheanine in their formulas. It is co-hosted by functional medicine expert Bryce Wylde, BSc, DHMHS and NutriScience Innovations Sales Manager Braxton Wright, M.S., Nutrition. 

Suntheanine once again meets Wylde’s Best-in-Show criteria 

As in past years, Suntheanine was among the limited number of ingredients named to Wylde’s Best in Show list. He selected products and ingredients based on stringent criteria: sustainability, science, traceability, transparency, efficacy, purity and potency. 

The many advantages of Suntheanine  

The hosts discuss the rising incidence of children diagnosed with ADHD and the importance of helping these children get a good night’s sleep. Theanine has been shown to help induce alpha brain waves for a deeper state of relaxation. “But not just any theanine,” stresses Wylde. 

“Suntheanine has multiple clinical studies supporting its use for children and sleep,” confirms Wright. They ask ChildLife Essentials founder and CEO Murray Clarke, DNM, D.HOm, L.Ac, why he chose to use Suntheanine in his Sleep Essentials product. 

“We always look for the highest quality ingredients,” explains Clarke. “Theanine is one of the primary ingredients in Sleep Essentials. We looked at all the clinical research studies and figured out that Suntheanine is the best in the world. So we put it in there. No melatonin. Just the Suntheanine.”  

Wylde observes, “That’s really important because at the end of the day, the ‘free from’ or what’s not in a product can be just as important as what’s in a product. Safety and efficacy, that’s where everything is at. Suntheanine has all of that and checks all the boxes. … What’s interesting is that this actually goes above and beyond a good sleep. (Suntheanine) is for attention, focus, alertness, concentration but without sedative effects.”

Suntheanine for better adult sleep  

Many adults may also benefit from Suntheanine’s ability to help support restorative sleep. “There are actually products out there that, when made the right way, can help people get into a much deeper, restful sleep so they wake up feeling energized and are living a happy, healthy life,” comments Wylde. 

For anyone who may be sensitive to a lot of sleep products, he asks Wright how to find the right, clean ingredients. 

“Suntheanine is a great product for sleep,” Wright confirms. “It’s been shown to improve sleep in adults and children.” He uses Premier Research Labs’ Tranguinol as an example. “They are so meticulous with the quality and cleanliness of the products they use. They use no excipients. (Each ingredient) has to meet rigorous quality standards. That’s why we’re so proud of this product where Suntheanine is being used.”

Sports nutrition is also a good platform for Suntheanine   

Athletes, even weekend warriors, are on the go. Their brains are always on alert or “in the state of GABA” explains Wylde. He asks Wright, “What can we offer athletes who are in this state?” 

Suntheanine is a great option because it can help increase those alpha waves to help bring you down from that overstimulation,” Wright responds. It can also help increase focus so “athletes can stay honed in on what they are trying to do.”

This is why Sports Research chose Suntheanine. Confirms Sports Research Project Manager Nathan McWherter, “Suntheanine has a great amount of clinical studies that back up how it can be used for focus … We formulated with Suntheanine because we like to stand behind something that’s packed with research and science. … We couldn’t be happier with what we’ve been able to do with NutriScience and Suntheanine.” 

There are even more reasons to consider supplementing with Suntheanine. Read what the experts have to say about Suntheanine’s benefits for stress! It may even improve your relationship with coffee.
