Remedy #42 L-Theanine, a Natural Treatment for Depression and Anxiety
What is it? L-Theanine is an anti-anxiety miracle naturally found in green tea. As a supplement, it can be a very helpful tool against depression, anxiety and even social anxiety. It works in the same manner as any other anti depressant, except it's completely natural. Some of these brain-altering benefits include a rise in GABA levels, a rise in serotonin and dopamine (look at Remedy #25) and an increase in alpha brain waves.
How does this help in curing depression? Well, the above results in relaxation and a calming effect, improved sleep, lowering of blood pressure and an improvement in the ability to focus and concentrate. Sound familiar? Yes, these are the benefits of drinking green tea too!
