Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 03, 2013
Kirkman®, a manufacturer known for the purity of its nutritional supplements, has just released a new amino acid product, L-Theanine 250 mg – Hypoallergenic.
This proprietary product contains 250mg of L-Theanine in hypoallergenic capsules.
Formulated to promote good health by supporting healthy blood pressure levels and helping to increase serotonin levels, L-Theanine promotes relaxing and calming benefits to individuals, qualities that are often helpful to those with special needs.
This amino acid, with its relaxing and calming qualities, also aids in promoting safe, restful sleep. L-Theanine is naturally present almost exclusively in tea plants (such as green tea) and is not present in protein foods like other amino acids, making it very unique. Now, even individuals who do not drink tea can reap the benefits of L-Theanine through supplementation.
As with all products that Kirkman® manufactures (except lotions, creams and oils), L-Theanine is Ultra Tested®, which means that it has been purity tested for more than 950 environmental contaminants. No other nutritional supplement company in the world even comes close to Kirkman’s purity testing standards.
Many Americans experience trouble sleeping, staying asleep or achieving good sleep, resulting in an unrested feeling the next day. L-Theanine combats this issue by naturally calming users through the support of healthy blood pressure levels without putting them into the drug-induced sleep often offered by prescription medications.
The reason L-Theanine is effective in promoting sleep is because it helps neutralize the effects of caffeine consumed throughout the day and promotes a calm, relaxed feeling without causing drowsiness. While studies suggest L-Theanine may not actually result in longer bouts of sleep, it has been shown to promote better sleep, which aids in a well-rested feeling the next day.
In addition to its obvious relaxation benefits, L-Theanine has also been known to boost its users’ moods, achieved through its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and help raise serotonin levels by positively affecting brain chemistry. Studies have gone as far as implying that L-Theanine could help prevent memory loss in old age as well as stave off memory impairments.
More About Ultra Tested®:
Kirkman® developed its Ultra Tested® standards for purity in response to the growing problems of environmental contamination in the nation’s food supply. In our modern world, environmental contaminants are ubiquitous. Natural ingredients in dietary supplements such as minerals and herbs that come from the ground may be exposed to dangerous pesticides, air or water pollutants or other environmental toxins. Moreover, the sources of supply of many of the raw ingredients used in nutritional supplements have shifted to countries such as China and India.
Kirkman® uses state-of-the-art mass spectrometry equipment and methods to test for 950 environmental contaminants that include 24 heavy metals, bacteria, yeast mold, common allergens, pesticides including fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, biocides, endocrine disruptors and other potentially harmful chemicals.
No other nutritional supplement company in the world tests its products for purity more thoroughly than Kirkman® does. Kirkman® believes that this degree of testing is necessary to assure customers that their nutritional supplements are pure and safe to take.
