L-Theanine and Caffeine are powerful energizing compounds found in mushrooms/tea and in coffee, respectively. Combining the two supplements provides synergistic effects. Caffeine has the chemical formula C8H10N4O2, while L-Theanine has the formula C7H14N2O3.
Caffeine + L-Theanine Benefits and Uses
L-Theanine is a fairly rare phytochemical and a non-dietary amino acid found primarily in a small number of mushrooms and in a tea plant called Camellia sinensis. Caffeine is a purine alkaloid and it is found predominantly in Coffea arabica, and has powerful stimulatory effects on the central nervous system. Scientific evidence suggests that the two compounds interact well together.
Several clinical studies and meta-analyses have been conducted to elucidate the effects of the combination of these two compounds. The results tend to indicate an improvement in cognitive performance above and beyond what either supplement offers when taken in isolation. Nevertheless, further research is needed to fully understand the significance of the benefits of this supplement combination.
Warning: Caffeine can cause potential health risks if taken in excess. Do not exceed the recommended serving size and never exceed 400 mg of caffeine per day. Remember that coffee, tea and energy drinks contain significant amounts of caffeine – and this needs to be considered when consuming a dietary supplement that contains caffeine.
DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED SERVING SIZE. Use with caution. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding.
