When life becomes demanding, and you feel the tension rise, you may want to prioritize the production of more alpha brain waves. Brain waves, classified as alpha, beta, delta, gamma or theta, are electrical impulses. Each brain wave frequency is associated with a different level of awareness.

Theta waves are produced when you’re dozing. When you’re in a sound sleep, your brain is likely producing mostly delta waves. Beta waves happen when you’re wide awake and excited (including feeling stressed).

And when you’re wide awake and relaxed, you’re probably producing more alpha brain waves. This calm, alert state is associated with better focus. Alpha waves help you stay in the moment (also referred to as “in the zone”). It’s a sought-after state of consciousness in this overstressed world.

Did you know that there are natural ways to help your brain produce more alpha waves? Some people use meditation or a long run to encourage more alpha wave activity. But you may not always have time to stop and meditate or go for a run.

Since ancient times, people have also consumed green tea to help relieve stress. Our researchers have found that L-theanine is the green tea component that helps induce relaxation. Tomorrow’s Nutrition Pro Suntheanine, a patented pure form of L-theanine, may be a more practical solution for your active lifestyle.

Clinical research suggests that 50 mg to 200 mg of Tomorrow’s Nutrition Suntheanine safely stimulates alpha brain waves. Unlike other stress-reducing supplements, Tomorrow’s Nutrition Suntheanine doesn’t cause drowsiness so you can take it any time of day.

Here’s another healthy lifestyle tip: To get more restful sleep, try taking Tomorrow’s Nutrition Suntheanine 30 minutes before bedtime. While it does not induce sleep, clinical studies have shown Tomorrow’s Nutrition Suntheanine to help you relax so you can fall asleep more easily and to provide deep regenerative sleep.
