This Week in Wellness with Dr. Amy

Nutrient Highlight: The holidays are here, and for many of us, they bring some extra stress with them! L-theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid found in green tea. It promotes a “restful, relaxed state” without causing daytime sleepiness. Although it might decrease blood pressure by a few points, it otherwise has not shown any adverse side effects or interactions. You can get these benefits by drinking green tea, but more effectively from a supplement that contains the extract. Alvea 623-215-6290
