BeTheanine 40% L-Theanine

Theanine - Mental focus and better sleep

Theanine is an amino acid analogue of the proteinogenic amino acids L-glutamate and L-glutamine, here the enantiomer L-theanine from green tea. Found in tea, and also found in some mushrooms.
Research shows that L-theanine can provide different health bene­fits, and improve mental focus and better sleep quality. Indeed, L-the­anine may affect the levels of cer­tain chemicals in the brain. These include serotonin and dopamine, which influence mood, sleep, and emotion, and cortisol, which helps the body deal with stress.
L-theanine may support the body in fighting off illness. Several studies have suggested that taking L-theanine could boost a person’s immune system, making them less likely to get common colds or the flu. Its potential anti-inflammatory effects could also help fight illness.

BeTheanine® is an extract 100% from selected green tea, without any carrier or compounds other than from the extraction of green tea, using low ethanol, standardized in 40% L-Theanine..In order to comply with the extraction protocol recommended in Europe (low ethanol), a specific supply chain has been set up:
  • precise selection of the collection area and teas,
  • definition of the level of leaf maturity
  • suitable drying system to preserve the assay,
  • Implementation of a selection protocol according to the active ingredient content
  • etc…
all this in order to maintain the optimum levels of L-Theanine in the green tea leaf, and to make it possible to obtain a rich extract without the risk of external intake, and in compliance with regulatory – and customer’s – requirements..The extraction ratio allows you to provides 140mg of L-Theanine while remaining at max. 11g of plant equivalent. The Xanthine content (caffeine and theophylline) is controlled as well as EGCG (max. 0.05%, typically absence or <0,01%, so no issue with regulation 2022/2340 amending 1925/2006)..As a green tea extract respecting the regulation in terms of tradional use and process, BeTheanine® is not novel food (“L-Theanine extracted from green tea (Camellia sinensis) only is not novel food. L-Theanine from any other sources is novel food. Green tea extracted limited to water or ethanol 25% extraction solvent is not novel food.”).Then, the process has been carefully worked on and optimized - nearly a year of testing - so that the extraction can be carried out using only water and 25% ethanol..BeTheanine® is produced under exclusive license according to our process (and specifications for the leaves and drying). The producer is certified FSSC22000, ISO9001, HACCP, GMP, FDA, Kosher and Halal.

Green tea - Source of polyphenols, antioxidants, and more...

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia sinensis leaves (sometimes buds) that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process used to make oolong teas and black teas (black tea is oxidized and green tea is not - in black tea, leaves turn dark brown and allow the flavors to heighten and intensify).
Green tea is a source of caffeine / theine, amino acid (incm. theanine), polyphenols especially catechins : catechins are types of flavanols, which are types of flavonoids, which are types of polyphenols. The main catechins are catechin, epicatechin, epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
