What is L-theanine?

In fact, it is a special amino acid contained in green tea (as well as black tea or oolong tea) that people often drink. Pure L-theanine is a white crystal with good water solubility and special aroma. L-theanine is a derivative of glutamic acid because its molecular structure is similar to glutamic acid.

L-theanine can be used as the basic raw material of GABA in human body. Recent studies have shown that L-theanine also has pharmacological effects such as enhancing immunity, lowering blood pressure and assisting in anticancer.
