Diet Doc Adds Focus-Improving L-Theanine to its Prescription Line-Up

Charleston, WV, June 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Medical weight loss program, Diet Doc is rolling out newly formulated prescriptions containing the amino acid, L-Theanine. L-Theanine is not common in the diet (it is only found in tea), nor is it one of the essential amino acids. However, L-Theanine can be a relaxing agent without sedation (relative to something like lemon balm which relaxes but may also sedate), and is also linked to the reduced perception of stress and slight improvements in focus and attention. While L-theanine does not appear to induce sleep, it may help with sleep as well. Here’s a list of L-Theanine’s benefits:

If you’re interested in managing stress and/or increasing focus, the relaxing and attention promoting properties of L-theanine coupled with the lack of sedation may have its most significant supplemental role in attenuating the ‘edge’ of many stimulants. A combination of L-Theanine with caffeine such as in Diet Doc’s Brain Doc prescription is noted to be synergistic in promoting cognition and attention. L-Theanine, is synergistic with stimulants such as caffeine as it is effective in standard supplemental dosages as well. and although it can be attained via a diet high in green tea ingestion that is the only dietary source of L-Theanine. There are some health benefits associated with green and black tea ingestion that are thought to be more reflective of the Theanine content rather than the green tea catechins or the theaflavins, and this has also been linked to improved cardiovascular health (as L-Theanine positively regulates nitric oxide) in addition to its cognitive benefits.

Who can benefit from L-Theanine? Aging patients who are looking to maintain their mental sharpness, those suffering from sleep disorders and individuals who are looking to better regulate their moods. Diet Doc medications containing L-Theanine are best used in conjunction with any of Diet Doc’s customized weight loss programs. L-Theanine can help to provide the energetic boost needed for increased physical activity and a higher functioning metabolism.

They can also maintain weight loss in the long-term through weekly consultations, customized diet plans, motivational coaches and a powerful prescription program.
