Today is the start to Brain Awareness Week which originated in 1996. Brain Awareness Week is the global campaign to promote public enthusiasm and support for brain science. The organizations that came together had aspirations “to bring together diverse groups with different interests from academia, government, and professional and advocacy organizations. The goal was to unite them with the common theme that brain research is the hope for treatments, preventions, and possible cures for brain diseases and disorders and to ensure a better quality of life at all ages.” - Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives
There are numerous different ways to interact in Brain Awareness week if this resonates with you. The organization has inspired a variety of events held each year such as lectures, panel discussions, neuroscience lab tours, art exhibitions, brain fairs, and lessons for school students around the world.
How do we contribute to such a unique week on the brain? Well, when we carefully crafted Calm Under Pressure we chose to use L-Theanine. The ultimate brain boost ingredient!
The inside scoop on L-Theanine, and why we chose to use it as the key ingredient in our Calm can is because L-theanine promotes relaxation without drowsiness. In general, many people tend to take L-theanine to help ease stress and unwind, used most commonly in teas and coffee. It’s said it may be the most beneficial for those dealing with high levels of anxiety. When paired with caffeine, L-theanine may help increase focus and attention. Some research suggests that L-theanine may improve the function of the body’s immune system, and further research indicates that L-theanine could be beneficial for a good night’s sleep. It may also be beneficial for those who experience increased blood pressure in stressful situations. Hence, it was our desire to put it into our Calm Under Pressure can to help you ease into any sort of stressful endeavors you may be facing on a daily basis.
