New book from Dr. Billie Sahley explores theanine

One of America's foremost authorities on amino acids and the executive director of the Pain & Stress Center announces the publication of Theanine: the Relaxation Amino Acid.

Theanine is a significant component of green tea, and it is an amino acid that confers tremendous benefits to human health and wellness. In her book, Dr. Sahley provides easy-to-understand explanations of the latest, cutting-edge research about how theanine promotes relaxation through its action of encouraging the brain to enter into an alpha state, without drowsiness.  By doing so, theanine helps proactive stress management, which in turn helps manage healthy blood pressure and thwart anxiety, leaving one feeling clear headed, calm and in control.  Sahley also discussed why green tea is so revered and is one of the most potent natural immune system support supplements available.

Theanine, The Relaxation Amino Acid (ISBN: 978-1-889391-38-0) is72 pages and only $8.95, available through Pain & Stress Center at 800-669-2256 or
