L-theanine is a stress-relieving amino acid that can help improve attention and reaction times.
We included the amino acid L-theanine in Re-Lyte Pre-Workout because of its ability to reduce stress, while also keeping you alert. L-theanine is proven to influence the chemicals in your brain (like serotonin and dopamine) and make you feel more mentally relaxed, so you cope with stress better.
But this isn't necessarily the type of relaxation that inspires you to take a snooze on the couch. Research shows that L-theanine can also improve attention and focus, which could give you the mental grit to power through those challenging workouts. Studies show that L-theanine can increase reaction time too, which could make you quicker on your feet.
The mental benefits of L-theanine are enhanced even more by caffeine, which is also in Re-Lyte Pre-Workout. In fact, the combination of L-theanine and caffeine has a more powerful impact on your focus and alertness than either compound has on its own.
