I felt calmer and more peaceful on this supplement, generally more balanced, and I loved it. But I took it for about 60 days, one each morning. I don't think that is recommended. I started experiencing shortness of breath, which disappeared about two weeks after I stopped taking it.
I still use it occasionally at bedtime to quiet my busy mind and have a good sleep. I do recommend it for that.

Wife finds it helpful
My wife has used theanine for awhile. Says it helps her focus. I'd say that's so.

I found this to help with stress and was effective right away. I would take one or two in the am. I would also take one during the day if I felt stressed and it helped. Made me feel much calmer and helped improve my mood. Worked better than Sam-e. I would definitely recommend it.

I take Suntheanine every night for a good, restful sleep.

Perfect chill pill
This really helps me during stressful times, immediately after a workout, or falling back to sleep in the middle of the night. My one wish would be that Swanson start to offer larger sizes of this and other products at a discount.

Helps Me with Stress
This product really helps to change my mood when I am stressed. It also helped my niece during an extremely rough time in her life.

Having used GABA for a few years and developing a little resistance to it, I thought I would temporarily switch to this for stress. This has more of a groggy side effect in the beginning but it went away. The GABA seems to be a "cleaner" product for me and my brain, but this is a decent alternative. GABA is a 5 leaf this is a 4 leaf.

One of the best products on the market today and at an exceptional value.

I am not a naturally relaxed individual and this product has helped a lot in that regard.
I will continue to buy this along with so many other products I regularly buy from Swanson.

didn't wear off...
This product didn't wear off the next day as I had hoped it would. I felt groggy, draggy and bad. Wouldn't take again.

I definitely got a bit moody after menopause. In the past 5 years I have tried all the mood-enhancing supplements. I started with 5-HTP since it is a top serotonin precursor, but it had zero positive effects. In all my trail runs with other mood supplements--such as St John's Wort, Sam-e, GABA, etc.-- Suntheaniane L-Theanine is the ONLY one that has made a truly noticeable positive difference. We all have different brain chemistries so I cannot say you will have the same effects, but it works beautifully for me. Also, I have found no higher quality Suntheanine from even the most highly touted $$$ brands. Swanson's wins again!!!

Best product out there
I have been using Suntheanine for quite some time now. It helps take some of the stress out of the day. I am able to stop and get a grip on the situation.
I have recommended this product to friends and family.
I purchase all of my herbs/supplements exclusively from Swanson's and have not been disappointed yet.

Very good Product
L-Theanine is a wonderful product and helps to relax me for a good nights sleep.

Theanine helps me!
I have been taking L-Theanine for a long time ~ usually twice a day. It calms my nervous system. I notice when I do not take it! My body and my mental stability are glad I have found Theanine! It has helped me through some challenging times. :)

Excellent product! It definitely does help to keep me calmer overall. I take one twice a day, in the morning and late afternoon. Doesn't make me drowsy but keeps the edge off. I find I feel less stressed since taking this.

An item I always purchase
I have recommended L-Theanine for years. It was recommended to me by an MD. It helps to calm and relieve stress by taking "the edge" off thinking that is spinning too fast. Just a month ago I saw that Dr. Amen was in favor of it (he suggests 400 mg) a day. The Swanson brand is the best value for the cost.

Used widely in Japan, this amino acid is free of caffeine and calms the alpha brain waves to help deal with stress. It also aids sleep patterns.

Didn't quite cut it
I didn't get the noticeable relaxation response that the others here evidently got. This brand is good, no bad reaction and can't compare it to others. It's probably an individual reaction and perhaps other brands would work better for me, though I'm not going to try them out just now.
