what is l-theanine?

In our latest energy drink offering at Huxley, we're excited to spotlight L-theanine, a remarkable amino acid primarily found in tea leaves, including green and white teas. This ingredient is pivotal in our new energy drink, not just for its unique interaction with caffeine but also for its standalone benefits.

what is an amino acid 

According to the Cleveland Clinic, amino acids are the building blocks of protein in your body. Amino acids may help to break down food, grow and repair body tissue, provide an energy source, build muscle, and boost your immune system. Find more about amino acids here

why l-theanine

According to SPINS, a leading provider of data and insights for the natural, organic, and specialy products industry, L-theanine is leading the charge for focus and stress management across beverage over the past 52 weeks. 

Being that L-theanine is a amino acid naturally found in green tea, it may help to reduce stress and may improve cognitive functions such as attention and memory. SPINS states that when it is combined with caffeine, it may improve attention and cognition. 

For us, using L-theanine in our new energy drink was a no brainer. Our goal when creating an energy drink was to create something that not only tastes good, but also is good for you. Our energy drink is aimed at providing a mental lift alongside the physical energy boost, catering to the comprehensive needs of our consumers​​.
