"Compared to previous theanine products I've taken that came in a capsule, these Vitacost tablets are larger and have a chalkiness absorption to them that makes them much harder to swallow for me. This is the first house brand product I've had a problem with."
"I'm a surly 51 year old male. I like my job, but hate where I work. I recently added this to St. Johns Wort and think it has calmed down the lingering anxiety working with the company president (a complete tool) - kind of like leftover hypnosis in the movie Office Space."
"I take one or two tablets at bed time. If I wake up during the night, my mind no longer goes into spinning thoughts that keep me awake. The theanine keeps my mind quiet and it is much easier to relax and go back to sleep."
"For me the Suntheanine capsules are more effective and sustain effectiveness longer. I can imagine several possible reasons for this and if I am able to pin it down I will submit another review. Sometimes formulation differences and purity issues loom large."
"Having had problems with a stress prone personality and waking up after a couple hours of sleep, then not being able to get back to sleep for hours....wow.....I couldn't be happier with the results L-Theanine has given me. I would definitely recommend you give these a try."
"I have been able to sleep better using this product. I also have loss a couple of lbs. but I have only been taking it less than a month. So I expect better results in another month. If you will take Ibuprofen with the L-Theanine you will not have a headache, at least I didn't. I ordered and plan on taking the Vitacost Green Coffee Bean Extract with the L-Theanine to see if the weight will come off more easily."
