A universal impact of Covid-19 is stress. You don’t have to be impacted with the virus to be dealing with anxiety and panic attacks. And that’s just the beginning. It’s been widely reported that alcohol and opiate drug usage is way up as we try to cope with the uncertainty.
While we can’t eliminate the concerns, we can choose natural and holistic options for relaxation and stress-reduction, which can enhance our well-being with the side-effects of opiates and alcohol.
One such, highly researched, natural product is green tea. Rich in the amino acid, L-theanine, green tea is the calming alternative to black tea or coffee. According to Andrew Weil, MD(1),
“Green tea contains less caffeine than does coffee, and provides L-theanine, an amino acid shown to promote a state of calm awareness.”
“Quickly calms and relaxes. L-theanine exhibits anti-anxiety effects by increasing dopamine levels in the brain, and also appears to decrease blood pressure.”
Further, a recent study from the National Institutes of Health reports,
“Stress-related symptom (i.e., depression, anxiety-trait, and sleep) scores decreased and cognitive function (i.e., verbal fluency and executive function) scores improved after four weeks of L-theanine administration. The reduction in sleep quality problems (disturbances in sleep latency, sleep disturbance, and use of sleep medication) was greater in the L-theanine administration compared to the placebo administration, while verbal fluency, especially letter fluency, was improved in the L-theanine administration among individuals who showed relatively low performance at pretreatment. Moreover, L-theanine administration was safe and well complied with. Therefore, L-theanine may be a suitable nutraceutical ingredient for improving mental conditions in a healthy population.(2)”
With all this validation, there’s no better time to try green tea to assuage your stress and related challenges. And there’s no finer and more concentrated form of green tea than our Chi Tea line of green tea extracts.
