Scientific name: Gamma-ethylamino-L-glutamic acid

L-Theanine is a unique amino acid found in the tea plant.

L-Theanine is a non-protein amino acid which takes up 50% of the total free Amino Acids in the green tea plant. L-Theanine is famous for its ability to increase Alpha Waves (associated with a feeling of calm and mental alertness).

Theanine is related to glutamine, and can cross the blood-brain barrier. Because it can enter the brain, theanine has psychoactive properties. Theanine has been shown to reduce mental and physical stress, may produce feelings of relaxation and improves cognition, and mood.

L-Theanine may help relieve stress by inducing a relaxing effect without drowsiness. L-theanine as been shown to promote the generation of alpha-brain waves, an index of relaxation. It may also boost natural resistance to microbial infections and perhaps even tumors. Researchers suggest further isolating and refining L-theanine from tea to use it as a drug to boost the infection defense of the body.

Theanine is speculated to produce these effects by increasing the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) production. Theanine increases brain serotonin, dopamine, GABA levels and has micromolar affinities for AMPA, Kainate and NMDA receptors.

L-Theanine may also help the body’s immune response to infection by boosting the disease-fighting capacity of gamma delta T cells.

Benfotiamine is a synthetic derivative of thiamine (vitamin B-1). It is a fat soluble substance of the allithiamine group of naturally occurring thiamine-derived compounds. It has showed promise in the fields of treating a number of neurological and vascular conditions.
Benfotiamine was developed in Japan in the late 1950’s to treat alcoholic neuropathy, sciatica and other painful nerve conditions. It was patented in the U.S. in 1962, and has been in widespread use in Japan since 1962 and in Europe since 1992 with encouraging results.

Diabetics form a large sub-group of those who could benefit from benfotiamine. Diabetes is an insidious malady. The adverse effects of high blood glucose must be addressed. The best course of action is proper diet, exercise and medication to control blood glucose levels. In addition, ensuring proper cellular nutrition with a safe dietary supplement to combat the metabolic effects of high blood glucose at the cellular level seems a prudent course of action, one of which Benfotiamine is an integral part.

NRx Mucuna Pruriens is the most powerful available today. Standardized to contain 250mg of L-Dopa in each capsule.After the discovery that Mucuna seeds contain L-dopa, an anti-parkinson’s disease drug, its demand in international market has increased many fold and demand has motivated Indian farmers to start commercial cultivation.

Mucuna Pruriens is commonly known as cowhage (Latin) and kiwanch (Sanskrit). Traditionally, Mucuna pruriens find use in number of diseases and is commonly used as carminative, hypotensive & hypoglycemic agent. From phytochemistry point of view, the drug contains L-dopa, tryptamine alkaloids, lecithin and tannins.

Traditionally Mucuna Pruriens has been used to increase sexual desire and ability, The seeds of the mucuna pruriens plant produce chemicals that support healthy levels of testosterone in both men and women. It also aids in the production of a hormone commonly associated with the “pleasure system” of the brain, providing feelings of enjoyment and motivation.

L-Dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine. Dopamine is an essential component of our body and it’s required for proper functioning of the brain. Research discovered the body converts the amino acid tyrosine into L-dopa; L-dopa is then converted into dopamine. Without the neurotransmitter dopamine to serve a damping effect on neural transmissions, muscles become tense and tremble.

L- Dopa contains natural secretagogues which may support the body’s ability to stimulate the natural release of growth hormone. The blood carries the dopamine into the brain, where it naturally increases HGH production from the pituitary gland. The increased dopamine levels also optimize the production of other hormones, including testosterone, leading to increased sex drive and improved sexual performance for both men and women, beneficial in stimulating muscle growth, as well as burning fat from fat cells.
