Stress, anxiety and mood disorders are some of the most common complaints of Americans. Even healthy people have stress. There are millions of people who are into mood-altering medications. And many others self medicate with drugs and alcohol. One has to wonder, what is the evidence that our modern approach to stress and anxiety actually works. Do they make people better? This is highly questionable.

There are many nutritional supplements recommended for stress and anxiety. This is good news. There are many ways to nourish your brain. You have many alternatives to explore and discover what is right and best for you. We have covered some of those nutrients in previous podcasts. When choosing a product to try, there are several things to consider. Has this product been tested for safety and effectiveness? Has this product been shown to be effective for my particular issue? How much is the right amount? How long do I take it? The only way we know the answers to these questions is through the scientific inquiry. That is why I like Suntheanine. Suntheanine has been shown to be very effective for supporting healthy stress levels, mood and sleep.

In this interview with Julie Thibeau, the director of sales and marketing at NutriScience Innovations, we discuss the role of l-theanine in human nutrition and we explore the science of Suntheanine. When using a nutritional supplement I suggest you use the branded trademarked clinically studied form of those nutrients. Use them in the dosages that were used in the studies, use them for a sufficient time and for indicated benefits. This is how youu can have the most confidence in a nutrient like Suntheanine.
