L-Theanine and Coffee: The Ultimate Combination

There are some pretty great combinations in this world. Peanut butter and jelly. Burger and fries. Waffles and syrup. (Anyone else getting hungry?)

Well, it’s time to add L-Theanine and coffee to the list. 

Caffeine is great for energy and alertness, however, we all know about the negative effects: Jitters, stress, anxiety, nervousness… and don’t forget about the afternoon crash. It’s pretty incredible what one special nootropic can do to counter all of that. Introducing L-Theanine.


What is L-Theanine?

L-theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid extracted from the leaves of the camellias sinensis plant. Otherwise known as the green tea plant.  It’s a nootropic that is known to improve cognitive function, and has been shown to have several benefits:

  • Elevate alpha brain waves for calm alertness and heightened creativity
  • Boost levels of GABA for improved focus and alertness
  • Reduce mental fatigue and stress


L-Theanine and Caffeine: A Perfect Match

It’s easy to see how these benefits synergize perfectly with coffee. The energy and stimulation fueled by the caffeine in coffee is harnessed much more effectively with the addition of L-Theanine. You will feel a calm sense of deep focus and alertness without the jitters. You will feel more creative and be more productive. And you will feel in the zone much longer because of the mental endurance boost L-Theanine provides.

Clinically Proven

Clinical studies back up the claims. Several studies spanning over decades have shown participants taking L-Theanine experience deeper focus, faster reaction times, decreased stress and anxiety, and elevated mental alertness.

Is L-Theanine Safe?

Perhaps the best part is L-Theanine is all natural, and has been shown to have zero levels of toxicity, dependency, or tolerance. It’s safer than caffeine!

The stimulating effects of caffeine are balanced perfectly with the calm focus delivered by L-Theanine. Reduce the jitters, and amplify the positive benefits that caffeine delivers. It’s a match made in heaven. Delivered in every cup of SmartJava.
